  1. We've seen reports that highlight the lack of green-space in Southern DT, but plans are being set in place for a park in this area. In the very early stages, 1/2 - 1 Block will be acquired for the park. This will be a joint effort by the Downtown Management District, COH Parks Dept. and TIRZ 3.
  2. I've been posting apartment market information in the Sky House Main thread, because it originally grew out of a conversation there. In order to make them more available, I wanted to start a separate thread. Here goes. As of 2nd quarter, 2016, downtown had a 56.2% occupancy rate. 207 new units were delivered during the second quarter '16. Net absorption was 142 units. FWIW, downtown had, by far, the lowest occupancy of all the submarkets in the Houston metro. The metro-wide occupancy rate was 89.7% I think the downtown submarket has a great future, but there was little

  4. Colorado Group Plans $80M Mixed-Use, Infill Project By Jennifer D. Duell Last updated: July 19, 2005 08:23am HOUSTON-Within three years, a mixed-use project is expected to rise on Block 98, a piece of vacant land adjacent to the new city park and the George R. Brown Convention Center. Two companies from Colorado Springs, LandCo Properties LLC and Equity Edge LLC, have formed a partnership to transform the 1.5-acre tract into two residential high-rises with ground-floor retail space. Block 98 is bordered by Rusk, Crawford, Walker and LaBranch streets near Toyota Center. Each
  5. Noticed this today on my bike ride.... anyone happen to know what they are replacing this with? Another parking garage or something else?

  8. I don't have the specifics for the height, floors, architect, etc. but here's what she's going to look like... I believe this is the view of the north side of the building that will face Market Square. This is based on the other renderings of the Chronicle site building. Block 42:
  9. I was wondering if it is possible to go to the observation deck at the chase tower? Do they let people in there?
  10. Hey guys, I'm hoping someone can provide a link or pics of the just released plans for the new downtown park/GRB. I searched other threads for info and I've found nothing. Thanks- Tejo
  11. Old machine shop was demolished a couple weeks ago and some dirt work has been done. I believe at one time it was going to be a brewery.
  12. Anybody know anything about this
  13. Does anyone have anything on this apparently they bought a block of land in Downtown for 55 million Nevermind* found little more information Skanska has purchased four land parcels, including one full city block, totaling about 14,200 square meters in downtown Houston, USA. The seller is a private citizen. The total investment amounts to USD 55 M, about SEK 520 M.Located adjacent to Discovery Green, these four sites are in Houston’s Central Business District and Skanska plans to develop a mix of office, multi-family and retail for the local community.
  14. 6-Story expansion planned at Jackson & W. Gray St. Currently on the planning commission agenda.
  15. forgive my ignorance but it seems like i recall people talking in the past about a potential redevelopment of the Post Office site? is there a thread on this? i tried searching but couldnt find anything on it. are there plans for the post office site to be redeveloped? if so what are the plans? i came across this site somehow and thought it was kind of interesting. i never knew the Post Office site sits on top of what used to be Central Station and Hotel for the rail road and the city of Houston back in the day. it makes me wonder if the site could be redeveloped into an Intermodal Terminal
  16. I heard rumors of a residential building planned for block 387. I finally saw something that gave that rumor some credence although I don't have anything substantial - this should be taken with a grain of salt. Soil samples.
  17. Well, well, well, Mr. Finger has let the cat outta the bag. Hopefully this one comes to fruition. So any comments on the style from what we can see?? 37 stories is pretty significant. Especially for a downtown residential rental tower. If the occupancy is absorbed quickly, then I think that we will see more towers sooner rather than later--and I would not be surprised if many of them were apartments with the intention of converting to condos later. It also looks as if Finger and Turnberry could be positioning themselves to have the tallest buildings completed in Houston since ??
  18. http://downtownhouston.org/site_media/uploads/attachments/2014-01-06/140102_Current_Projects_11x17.pdf This proposal has been on the development map for a while now, guess no one really noticed. Anyway, the owner behind the plans recently asked the DRA to increase funding. I'm not sure if the building will be converted to residential or hotel use.

  20. Subdivision plat filed by Urban Genesis for a multifamily project at the corner of Wood & Walnut Streets. SubdivisionPlatPDF_CS 19074-PLAT_v1.pdf Currently, a warehouse sits on site.
  21. I've only lived in Houston and downtown for two years and I am amazed by the amount of change that has occurred on the restaurant / bar scene. When I moved here, OKRA was not even open / even hinted at. Since then there has been a number of successful openings and it's hard to keep up with the pace of change. I've also been very pleased with the quality of each opening - these establishments are nothing like the typical Midtown / Wash Ave bars where the bartenders do not even know what Campari is. Here are recent openings in no particular order: Prohibition (1008 Prairie). A burlesque event s
  22. The property at 212 Milam St., presently occupied by the more-or-less abandoned Chase Motor Bank across the street to the north from Market Square Tower, has recently been listed for sale: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/212-Milam-St-Houston-TX/15558588/ Here's hoping for some nice redevelopment to extend the skyline further north.
  23. It looks like they're reintroducing retail at the corner of Rusk and Main: http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/Commissions/docs_pdfs/hahc/Application_Materials/April_MATERIALS/712_Main_Gulf_Building_App_Materials.pdf
  24. Subdivision plat filed for the U-Haul Moving & Storage site at 1617 San Jacinto. The project will also take out half of the surface lot along Leeland. SubdivisionPlatPDF_1617-1741_U-Haul at San Jacinto No 745062_plat.pdf
  25. Found an undated .pdf about the building when googling about (http://har3.commgate.com/photos/pdf/fs/174981_3.pdf) after taking the pic below. I have ever heard anything about the building, but thinking about Texas Street (referred to as Avenue in the link and formerly on the side of this building) development that is coming along, I wonder if this will ever be worth anyone's while to renovate. A website called loopnet states that it is off the market.
