  1. 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
  2. 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:
  3. I received an e-mail a while ago from a Frances Harvey who had her wedding at the top of the Esperson buildings in 1992. Apparently, it was shows on KHOU. She was good enough to share her wedding photos with us so we can get a rare view of this Houston architectural landmark.
  4. 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
  5. Hearst Selects HFF to Market Houston Chronicle Downtown Property http://realtynewsreport.com/2014/11/21/hearst-selects-hff-to-market-houston-chronicle-downtown-property/ Thanks to desertpunk at SSC.
  6. I moved into Near Northside a few years ago. I could feel the growth and potential, loved the area. A few commercial places popped up soon after I moved in. Things seemed good. But since, the Hardy Yards project is all but failed and 2020 seems to have sapped the momentum the neighborhood had going. Other than Elysian Viaduct giving us insanely great access to downtown, the neighborhood feels stagnant. We’re boxed in by 5th Ward’s cancer cluster to the east. And the Heights seems like the find a way to push less desirable projects to our side of i45. What y’alls opinion on the outlook of
  7. According to the Chronicle, several tenants are already clearing out of the building even though Skanska has not confirmed anything. Latest renderings & info: http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2015/06/developer-to-pour-foundation-for-downtown-office-tower/#23198101=0
  8. 6-Story expansion planned at Jackson & W. Gray St. Currently on the planning commission agenda.
  9. Nothing new to report unfortunately. Just a general impression of the 1100 block of Main St. on the lightrail and across from the soon-to-be demolished Macy's. The current tenants - Main Food Store, a beauty supply store, and the 1st floor of a parking garage - seem to be a real impediment to growth and a quality pedestrian experience along the Main St. corridor. Walking through the Houston Pavilions today was actually pleasant in spite of the heat and there are pockets of improvement all around downtown, but this block was full of pigeons, homeless, and lots of litter. It ju
  10. 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
  11. Whats your opinion about the shops? they have a wide selection for food and "dining" but retail wise they are falling behind.. plus they use most of the empy spaces to advertise for other stores... Although i think its great for what they do have.. I went yesterday with an aunt from mexico and we went to the grocery store at the end, and she asked (in spanish) "Why do they have all this stuff here?" i replied with a quote i heard in this forum ... but back to your opinion.....
  12. First installment of an extensive library of pics all around Downtown Houston. Pictures originally taken by 254 of SSC. (Mexican Consulate)
  13. I was wondering if it is possible to go to the observation deck at the chase tower? Do they let people in there?
  14. 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.
  15. Inspired by the Editor's post about 20 years of HAIF & Bilbao58's posts in SSC about projects that are less than 20 years old - I present: The Highlighter Google Earth Downtown Houston 20 Years of development image. Green: New Build Yellow: Renovation (saved from abandonment, which is why the Leeland Federal Building is not notated, or the Allen Center). Purple: U/C buildings missing from the outdated satellite imagery. Feel free to add in or ask me for corrections/amendments. A cool visual of the amount of investment in our city! Personally, I'd be happy t

  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Noticed this today on my bike ride.... anyone happen to know what they are replacing this with? Another parking garage or something else?

  21. Anybody have more information on this project? I know most of it is complete, but does anybody have any photos?
  22. 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.

  24. I know there's been some discussion in the past of the site that the Scamrock was planned for, and that Hines had been involved with the site as of late. After stumbling across this page & the rendering included, I was wondering if anyone had additional info on it. http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w208/houtosme/HinesNorthTower.jpg Webcam: http://oxblue.com/open/hines/609main Latest Renderings and Info as of 10/2013 : http://hines.com/press/releases/10-24-13.aspx http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1200x/w9/w960vwofy7my72oy.jpg
