  1. 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
  2. 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/

  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. 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.
  6. 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:
  7. 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.
  8. When I was a kid, late 70s, early 80s, I had heard stories of a planned airport for short-takeoff craft that was planned to be on the south side of 59 at Greenway Plaza, between 59 and Westpark. I think the plan originated in the 60s, but never came to, probably due to obvious safety and noise issues. Had anyone else heard of this? I did a cursory google search and came up empty handed.
  9. I am guessing this will be Noel's Corporate HQ, the parking got meshed with their new building. Site: Rendering: http://tiltpixel.com/album/corporate/
  10. So I'm calling apartment complexes today and one of them is: Greenway Gardens 3131 Timmons When I ask about their upcoming vacancies, she says "we're not renting at this time", and when I asked "so you're tearing them down", the response was "we are in the process of redevelopment". Which is code for "we are intending to bulldoze the hell out of everything as soon as legally possible". According to HCAD, the property was sold to CWS GREENWAY LLC as of 3/27/2014 - another strong indicator that the property will soon meet a wrecking ball. Finally, it's an affordable apartment complex inside the loop, and we just can't have anymore of those, now can we. I can't find any other info on this, but I'd bet there's an announcement in the next month or so. (mods: move to correct forum if this isn't the right one for speculation)
  11. Hello from the Dallas section of HAIF ya'll. I didn't know where to put my favorite photos of H-Town so I guess this is good enough. Sorry if some of these photos have already been posted. I haven't checked the other threads out. Feel free to add your own random favs. No category required.

    The Metropole

    Has anybody ever heard of this? Apparently it's a conversion of an abandon building in Greenway Plaza to residential.
