  1. Saw this article in the chron this morning - http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/columnists/sarnoff/article/As-far-as-land-goes-large-tract-near-Medical-7252410.php Does anyone know where to find the marketing materials? I checked out the Cushman & Wakefield website but couldn't locate it. It's not quite as close to TMC3 as Nancy seems to think (I think she's looking at the wrong parking lot), but still relatively close
  2. (If others think this should go to a different subforum, I totally understand... just let me know) https://www.renewableenergyworld.com/articles/2019/09/houston-mayor-selects-developer-for-70mw-urban-solar-array-in-revitalization-plan.html
  3. Does anyone on this forum know what the giant Silo near Braeswood/Pressler in the Medical Center is? It looks like a construction site, but I didn't see whos building.
  4. Saudi Arabia Stuns World With Massive Discount In Oil Sold To Asia, Europe And U.S. Oil prices are down more than 30% this year. Oil prices are poised to drop dramatically after Saudi Arabia announced a stunning discount in oil prices — of $6 to $8 per barrel — to its customers in Asia, the United States and Europe. The world's second-largest producer this weekend also said it will actually boost oil production instead of cutting it to stem falling prices, in a stunning reversal in policy from just two days ago. The benchmark Brent oil price already plunged 9.4%, to $45.27 per barrel, on Friday. The drop came after Saudi Arabia, the rest of OPEC and Russia failed to agree on production cuts to combat falling prices due to fears that the coronavirus epidemic will halt world economic growth. https://www.npr.org/2020/03/08/813439501/saudi-arabia-stuns-world-with-massive-discount-in-oil-sold-to-asia-europe-and-u-
  5. Earlier this year, there was a news item that Occidental (Oxy) was in talks to buy Conoco's (now ConocoPhillips) old headquarters on Katy Freeway. More recently the business media has reported that Oxy has put all of their Greenway Plaza space up for sublease and that the space will be available when Oxy moves to a "a newly constructed, owned property to the west.” Of course, not a single business reporter in this town has managed to discover or, so as we know, even inquire about, WHERE Oxy is building their new headquarters, how big it might be, who is the architect, etc etc. Has anyone heard anything?
  6. i saw this post over on city-data and thought it was interesting.. is this a sign/confirmation that Exxon is finally moving their HQ to Houston? Today, 08:55 PM LoveDontHate Junior Member befriend Join Date: Sep 2014 1 posts Reputation: 10 Quitting job because Exxon is moving Hi there, I am a mother with 3 kids. My husband works at Exxon HQ, which is in Irving, TX. Exxon is planning to move their workers to Houston, including my husband. I have lived in Irving for my whole life and I wouldn't think of moving. My husband really love his job and I don't like living in Houston because of the humidity, hurricane threats, and traffic. My kids are attending the finest school in Irving, and is Houston ISD a good school district to put my child into. I am convincing my husband to quit this job, and find another one. Should we move to houston. Or my husband quit his job and stay here?
  7. I'm sure many of you are probably aware, but I did not know this. I knew it was up there, but not second.
  8. From the HBJ, I don't have access to the whole article: "The Four Oaks Place office complex may soon be more appropriately named Five Oaks Place. The owner of the 1.8 million-square-foot office complex in the Galleria area is looking at spending between $100 million and $120 million to develop a new office building at 1550 Post Oak Blvd., where a 24 Hour Fitness is currently located" It's about to get busy in that area...

  10. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: Marathon Oil Tower is a skyscraper in Uptown Houston. Each year Marathon Oil Tower celebrates the opening of the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo with an award-winning event. Click here to view this photo at the HAIF Photo Pool on Flickr
  11. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/5473590.html The replies are hilarious, too.
  12. I was reading through Tory Gattis's blog last week (houstonstrategies.blogspot.com), and I was really intrigued with his idea for a global energy technology conference in Houston. Here are a couple of entries he posted on this: http://houstonstrategies.blogspot.com/2007...technology.html http://houstonstrategies.blogspot.com/2007...or-houston.html A couple of excerpts: ...and then a Chronicle reply: http://blogs.chron.com/houstonpolitics/200...ur_brand_1.html My initial thoughts are that this would be extremely beneficial to the city. I think this is worthy of a discussion here.
  13. Williams Tower - formerly known as Transco Tower Height: 901 feet 64 stories Circa: 1983 Architects: Johnson Burgee and Morris Aubry Facts - Then Transco Tower became Williams Tower when Transco Energy was bought out by Williams Energy Corp. in 1999 - Tallest building outside of any CBD - Rotating beacon at night on roof every 15 seconds - Williams Tower functions as two 32-floor towers stacked on top of each other, complete with separate lobbies, elevators, and garages. - South of the building is a 3-acre park with a large fountain called the "Waterwall" (aka Transco Fountain), designed by the building's architects with Richard Fitzgerald & Partners. The fountain is a stunning work of hydraulic engineering. - The top of the building features a beacon that sweeps the night sky over the Galleria area. - Construction took only 16 months, a remarkably short time for a tower of such height. 2 Pics by Patrick Benders Next four Pics by Mancuso Former
  14. Last I checked, the Skanska project has 5 tunnel connections. Also I think we should all remember that Linebeck, Skanska, and Hines are all chasing the same group of potential tenants. I think we will see one of the three go in the next year maybe two if we are lucky. Now the good news is that there is a 50ish story tower that will beat all 3 of these out of the ground.
  15. Thermal Energy Corporation has a small plant on S. Main near Holcombe across from Innovation Plaza.
  16. 4722 & 4728 West Alabama will become a healing center of Ivy Yang. Two small-to-mid buildings. https://twitter.com/ivysyang https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/TABS/Search/Project/TABS2020019656
  17. Does anyone know what kind of gas is being built on Westheimer near Wilcrest. The all brick facade is turning out very nicely.
  18. From reddit u/AColonelOfTruth Looks like the Houston House and 2016 Main apartments were under construction. Edit: I think this is the Holiday Inn instead of the 2016 Main.
  19. My grandfather worked for the Humble Oil Co from 1927-1972. He worked for them in Longview, TX until 1960 when they transfered him to Houston. His son, my dad, took these photos of the Humble Oil Bld construction on 800 Bell between 1960-1963. Notice the downtown YMCA in the background:

  22. The city of Houston has moved from BETA(+) to ALPHA(-) according to the Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC). That's 6 spots higher to Number 35 in the World. ALPHA Class cities are defined as; cities that are highly integrated areas, filling advanced service needs. The index ranks cities’ current performance based on a number of metrics, including business activity, human capital, information exchange, political engagement and cultural experience. Houston has seen close to 700 different announcements in the region over the last 10 years of foreign firms saying they are going to invest in Houston. Things that bode well for the future of Houston, we are getting more interest from firms overseas investing or visiting or somehow doing business in Houston. Global Rankings for US Cities: ALPHA (++) = New York City ALPHA (+) = 0 ALPHA = Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami ALPHA (-) = San Francisco, Houston, Washington D.C. BETA (+) = Boston, Atlanta, Dallas BETA = Denver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia BETA (-) = Seattle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globalization_and_World_Cities_Research_Network
  23. I went to Houston last week for the first time in a bunch of years, and driving down OST toward the Medical Center I drove past the ugliest building I've ever seen. It's huge and looks like two pyramids glued together. It looks for all the world like something out of Doctor Who - a space age military fortress. It's at 1500 OST, the corner of OST and North Stadium Drive. Does anybody know who built that monstrosity, and for what purpose?
  24. We've heard rumors, and this pretty much confirms it.. http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2014/04/anadarko-campus-in-the-woodlands-could-grow-again/
