  1. Fresh on Loopnet. Site sits on 0.92 acres. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3334-Richmond-Ave-Houston-TX/24287602/
  2. Noticed a $300,000 permit this week for 2900 Richmond Ave.
  3. So I pass by Summit Place or Plaza, right next to Lakewood Church/Compaq Cente/Summit, and that project look totally idiotic. First I noticed that the pyramid shaped caps on the towers were way out of proportion to the rest of the building (all the had to do was copy the cap on the Mercedes dealership next door) then they are building a garage behind it that you can see is towering over it from the freeway. Doesn't look like the architects did any mass models! To top it off, the garage look like it will be unfinished concrete while the store fronts are brick! Talk about another uninspired project for Houston. I was hoping that something good would be built there. I also hate the Spanish Colonial strip malls they built on the other side of the freeway, replete with the fake tile roofs. Why can't the city embrace some modern architecture for once?
  4. Senterra Real Estate has a multifamily project in the planning stages for the NW corner of Richmond & Buffalo Speedway. SubdivisionPlatPDF_Senterra Richmond.pdf
  5. This shopping center is at Buffalo Speedway & Westpark. Across the street from H-E-B. This center is anchored by Kroger. Noticed Vietopia vacated their spot after a decade. They are now located at the Southwest Freeway service road by Whataburger. Went to eat there last night. Same great food! Definitely a smaller footprint. Probably had to downsize due to Covid. Found an old drawing from the realtor's website. http://www.rhsint.com/plaza-in-the-park.html
  6. https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/hougwdt-doubletree-houston-greenway-plaza/ Located at 6 E. Greenway Plaza Houston, TX 77046. This hotel was once branded as Renaissance Hotel Houston. Not sure of the date.
  7. Looking for a bit of history on the Chase bank in the Greenway area off of US 59 and Buffalo Speedway. It has the gold dome and I remember back when the Rockets were winning championships they covered the dome with a Basketball tarp. Anyway, I am looking for the origins of this building just for my own curious reasons.
  8. Noticed this on Loopnet. 2828 Southwest Fwy - Four Points by Sheraton Greenway Plaza https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/2828-Southwest-Fwy-Houston-TX/23923870/ The Property is situated on 2.38 acres (103,569 square feet) of land, presenting a rare opportunity for a developer with flexibility to reposition or redevelop the Property into a different asset type. Alternatively, a new hotel investor will have the opportunity to realize the significant upside of acquiring and renovating an asset in a highly desirable submarket, substantially below replacement cost.
  9. Weslayan Plaza announcement: Goodbye Chuck E., hello Torchy http://www.instantnewsbellaire.com/weslayan-plaza-announcement-goodbye-chuck-e-hello-torchy/
  10. Source: https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/11/18/austin-developer-plans-multifamily-project-near.html This will also be Oden Hughes' first project inside the loop. The property was also valued at $4.9 million. Area of development:
  11. ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Technical Training Center Project: ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Technical Training Center, Houston Client ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Architect: PageSoutherlandPage Contractor: D.E. Harvey Consultants: Shen Milsom Wilke (av/acoustics); ASA Consulting Engineers (structrual); ARCADIS (civil); The Office of James Burnett (landscape); Sunland Engineering (traffic); HBC/Terracon (soils); Bridges International (roofing); Moisture Technology Corp. (curtain wall) Photographer: Tim Griffiths Floor Plan The design of the ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company Technical Training Center, completed in May 2004, blends the old with the new. The two-story 98,000-sf facility responds to the materials and horizontality of the existing Buffalo Speedway campus, but applies a new combination of forms and material relationships. The new building's design becomes more creative as it moves away from its junction with the 1950s-era McKie and Kamrath building, notable for its strips of brick, glass and shading devices. The new facility's facade steps toward the street in a series of layers composed of Central Texas limestone, glass, and brick. Another material - a canted curved metal panel - is introduced to represent ExxonMobil's innovative technology. The facility houses a grand lobby and gallery, classrooms of various sizes, two large areas for breakout sessions, as well as support and office spaces for training staff. The terrazzo floor in the lobby is an abstract pattern representing fluvial systems studied within the training center. Classrooms are equipped for the latest media, and a visualization classroom takes advantage of a large projection screen that can be configured in several ways, including as four sides of a cube. Parking for approximately 458 cars is provided adjacent to the training facility. The project distinguishes itself by covering a wide range of subject matter, from the tactile nature of oil field hardware and geologic material to the virtual world of computer models and simulations. All elements combine to create a training tool which will serve thousands of students annually from around the world who are involved in ExxonMobil's exploration, development, production, and research enterprises. --Courtney Mahaffey Link
  12. Okay.... So wasn't this theater supposed to have retail or resturants inside? What happened? Soft market? No investors? Anyone have any info? Don't get me wrong I like the murals of future restaurants. Just wondering.

  14. Had a great experience with a principal of Stantec. The principal gave me a tour of the floor and let me feel at home. Impressive layout! Thank you. http://www.stantec.com/about-us/office-locations/united-states-locations/texas-offices/houston-greenway-plaza-texas-office.html
  15. I've been here a lot lately. Loving Rustika Cafe & Bakery, Thai Bistro, and 100% Taquito. The shopping center has a great view of Greenway Plaza and Upper Kirby. Just wanted to make a thread for future happenings. https://davisholdingslp.com/summit-square-entry/
  16. Midway is planning on redeveloping the current Levey Park on Richmond between Eastside and Wakeforest into a mini CityCentre-type development that will include a 16-story office, lofts, retail and a park. i've heard additional development is possible as well. renderings should be floating around soon i'm sure.
  17. 11-Story office building proposed. We may get to see more on Dec 5th.
  18. This will be turned into Wisteria. A Furniture, Decor, and Home Accessories store.
  19. Chateau Domingue Has Checked Out of Its Euro-Centric W. Alabama Showroom off Edloe http://swamplot.com/chateau-domingue-has-checked-out-of-its-euro-centric-w-alabama-showroom-off-edloe/2018-03-06/
  20. Driving by I noticed the Chase Bank branch at 3403 Richmond Ave is now closed. This is across the street from 3737 Buffalo Speedway. This is prime real estate! That stretch of Buffalo Speedway could really kick off. The RO, Senterra Richmond, and now this 2-acres. The Loopnet listing has been pulled. Can't find it on CBRE's website either. This has been sold? https://www.loopnet.com/listing/3403-richmond-ave-houston-tx/7729788/
  21. It's interesting to note that the surface lot across from this just went on the market. http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/SEC-WESLAYAN-W-ALABAMA-Houston-TX/11813599/
  22. Moody Rambin is converting the old Sherman Clay Pianomax (now Fort Bend Music Center) into something new. https://www.moodyrambin.com/properties/?propertyId=GrandForum Loopnet listing https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3133-Southwest-Fwy-Houston-TX/20981809/
  23. I alluded to this in the 2929 Wesleyan thread but now that bisnow referenced it this morning I figured it was ok to talk about. PM is redeveloping the solvay site by tearing down the existing bldg and replacing it w a hotel/condo and building a 20 story office next door. I can't confirm much re the hotel but it sounds like the office is moving forward and would assume the hotel is as well. Don't expect anything earth shattering architecturally speaking. Should be a nice addition regardless. There are a few more projects proposed in the immediate area as well, some further along than others, but 3333 sounds like the closest thing to a guarantee.
  24. Always wondered when this would be sold for something of higher value. Prime location. Weslayan & 59. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/4015-Southwest-Fwy-Houston-TX/21166287/
  25. So I'm trying to get my website up and running again. So I'm researching new material. At the moment I'm trying to find to find info anything that anyone could add is very much appreciated. Here's what I have so far. History: The shopping center was planned designed to be an indoor mall and to have Weslayan routed underground. In 1952 Weingarten's opened their store (which would later become Randall's) this is the first store in the shopping center. It was built with a basement likely to mesh with the mall design. The idea for this to be a full blown mall was dropped sometime around the same year. Questions: Who where the former Tenants? Was the entrance to Weingarten's/Randall's always on the side it currently is? Was anything else built for the mall that was later used in the shopping center? A few pages on the center's original design. Ad for Dor-O-Matic showing a great proposed design. List of Tenants and a nice pic of Randall's from 2005. 1978 mention in Texas Monthly of the address Petco currently uses. 1994 mention in Houston Press of H&H Music at Petco address. Image of "Regal Sleep Shops". Small mention notes that the mall was intended to be one story. Brasco Door Ad with pic claiming to be Montclair Weingarten's.
