  1. 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:
  2. 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.
  3. Wish the Sterling Hotel was gracing downtown right now. Also, the Westin/Doubletree was built. That's the hotel on Post Oak Blvd that was a Hilton for a long time...
  4. For years I have been wondering if Sears will ever do something with this eyesore located in midtown. It has so much potential, I guess at one point it was actually considered a beautiful building. Sears really needs to think about bringing it back to its original form. Something needs to be done. I would prefer to preserve the building, instead of razing it . What do you all think? Article found in the Chronicle today. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/life/main/5924010.html ''It's hideous!" fumes my friend V., warming up to one of his favorite rants: the unbearable ugliness of the Sears on Main Street. "It's right there on the light-rail line! At the entrance to the Museum District! At one of the few places where Houston can look good to visitors!" V., I have to admit, has a point. Sears' tan metal siding, blotched with graffiti cover-up, gives the building's upper floors the beaten-down air of an aging ministorage unit. But even that beats the urban battle fortifications at ground level. Someone, it appears, worked hard to make the department store defensible, able to repel invading hordes of shoppers intoxicated by Vanessa Hudgens' back-to-school ads. At the Wheeler side of the building, two sets of glass double doors, blacked out and locked during business hours, present an ominous face to the street. Opaque gray film makes the official entrance's glass doors, facing Main, only a little less scary. Bricks fill almost all the former display windows; burglar bars and more of that gray film cover the plate glass that survived. Only the most intrepid seekers of Kenmore appliances would dare breach such a bulwark. What's the deal, V. wonders. Does Sears think that the urban shoppers that store serves deserve less than, say, the suburbanites at the Memorial City Mall? And for that matter, hasn't someone at Sears noticed that Midtown has gentrified around the store? Isn't there a retail audience yearning to be better served? "Don't just return," exhorts the Hudgens back-to-school ad for Sears. "Arrive." V. would like that Sears to do just that. ...
  5. The one along Holly Hall crosses freight tracks owned by UP or Houston Belt & Terminal, but the frequency of trains is very low and almost never during the daytime. At night, small trains drop off and pick up cars at the Grocers Supply Co. distribution center on Holcombe, which is where the line currently ends, but that is the only user of the tracks of which I'm aware.

    Pennzoil Place

    Maybe I was trippin. Either pennzoil place has a light show on their building at night now, or it was just lights from party on the plaza. I saw it coming in from 45 n last night. It looked cool, and then right by the bagby exit u see the big blue lights comin from under the freeway for the bayouwalk.
  7. I was wondering if it is possible to go to the observation deck at the chase tower? Do they let people in there?
  8. It's officially for sale: See full article: http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto...tml?jst=b_ln_hl
  9. Here are my photos so far. I have some more I have to take of this really cool wall they have left standing all by itself. I keep wondering how it stays up because there is nothing to brace it. I guess they are waiting for it to fall on its own. I will head over there this afternoon and add to these. I took these two weeks ago: http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05.jpg From the TGI Friday's lot perpendicular to the Tollway. http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05-2.jpg Same angle. http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05-3.jpg Dillard's goin' bye-bye. http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05-4.jpg The backside of the mall--JC Penney is gone already.
  10. Hines announces timber office project in Austin Katherine Feser Aug. 25, 2021Updated: Aug. 25, 2021 2:40 p.m. Hines is developing T3 Eastside at 1200 E. 4th St. in Austin. It's the company's first Class-A timber project with a residential component. Hines Houston-based Hines announced it would build its first timber office project in Texas. T3 Eastside, in Austin, will have 92,000 square feet of office space and 9,200 square feet of residential space. The project, a Hines eco-minded initiative named for timber, transit and technology, will be developed at 1200 E. 4th St. and include 15 loft-style units with a historical industrial design. It is among 16 T3 office projects for Hines and is the first to be designed with a residential component, according to John Mooz, senior managing director at Hines. The construction method incorporates wood products generated from fast growing trees. T3 Eastside, which is accessible to downtown by rail, is the first project in Austin for Hines in more than 40 years. Several additional projects across various sectors will be announced in the coming months. JLL is marketing the space to tenants in creative industries such as technology, advertising, media, information and biotechnology/life sciences. “T3 Eastside is designed to accommodate needs of firms who seek creative-class workers and residents by delivering a unique product and location while offering proximity to living, dining, entertainment and easy access to transit while honoring the unique artistic spirit of the neighborhood,” Philip Croker, senior managing director at Hines and co-Austin city head, said in an announcement. The building will feature areas for collaboration, a rooftop patio, private outdoor balconies for tenants, shared conference space, a fitness center and bike storage facilities. Austin's office vacancy rose to 16.9 percent in the second quarter as 1.9 million square feet of office space was completed in the first half of the year, according to JLL. Occupancy was 10.6 percent in the year-ago quarter. Another 4.2 million square feet is under construction in the Austin area. Hines has developed T3 projects in cities such as Minneapolis, Atlanta, Denver, Toronto and Melbourne, Australia. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Hines-launches-timber-office-project-in-Austin-16411232.php
  11. On Tuesday, March 21st, 2006, KinkaidAlum posted: "The antenna at One Shell Plaza reaches to around 1,000 feet. There are several photos on emporis.com that show the antenna to reach almost the exact same height as Wells Fargo. The one building that has always confused me is the St Luke's Medical Tower. It's official height is listed at 316 feet. Apparently, the needle spires aren't counted in the height, but even without them, 316 feet seems way too short. Especially when you consider that the nearby Marriott Hotel is listed at 265 feet. There's NO WAY St Luke's is only 51 feet taller than the Marriott even without the spires!" I checked this out from multiple angles tonight. The question is not whether or not St Luke's is over 316 feet; it is whether or not (including spires) it is under or over 440'. With the spires I am certain that it is no shorter than the recent Memorial Hermann Medical Plaza. Edit: skyscraperpage and E______ both quote 316/25st., but Baylor College of Medicine says 29 storeys. The architect's website doesn't indicate one way or the other, saying only, "The Tower is a sophisticated, state-of-the-art medical facility and teaching hospital which captures the spirit and character of Houston and the adjacent Texas Medical Center. Twin octagonal towers respond to this dual frontage and help define the urban environment. The circular roofs and spires bring each tower to a dynamic terminus." There's a nice picture, though, of St Luke's as the only building visible from Hermann Park. A much more personable presence than the hulking Memorial Hermann.
  12. It's not quite going up yet, but I'm confident it will be soon as there have been recent reports about their plans including this one from this past Friday. We can change the title once it is announced. From the article: The article also mentions that other potential locations are the Med Center, Energy Corridor, downtown and even suburban locations like The Woodlands and Sugar Land. http://www.chron.com/business/sarnoff/article/Sarnoff-Ashby-high-rise-developers-request-first-3832588.php#photo-3396224
  13. Where did the big locomotive go that used to sit in front of the lake by the zoo?
  14. I am now living in Los Angeles, but on a recent trip to Houston, I saw the difference in retail outlets in the Galleria and even Highland Village. Both places have gotten pretty big chains and specialty stores, like Burberry, Dior, Bose, Jimmy Choo, and Luca Luca. Although most people don't care for this, since it is outside of most people's reach, I work in this industry, doing marketing for luxury brands, and I know that stores moving into a city at this pace signifies growth and confidence that the city is chic enough and diversified enough to open shop. In Houston, there have been 13 store openeings of a high caliber, those found in Rodeo Dr or 5th Ave. 10 years ago, that would have been impossible, I think that Houston is on the ap like never before. But those are just my thoughts. Though it is not the architecture phenomenon we all wish for, at least people visiting---for pleasure or business---will see the Gucci store or the Sony Style store and not feel that they are in a country town with big freeways. Not to up-play it, but this type of thing makes a difference when producers look for a city to host a show in, like the REAL WORLD or and awards show. It puts us on the cultural map. What do you guys think? Treader

  16. 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
  17. 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.

  21. Chronicle has a good article on him in today's paper. http://chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4876742.html Just some quotes I found interesting: I wonder what the best "probelm area" is prime for taking on right now? Breath of fresh air. Does anyone know if he's had any recent projects here or if he's currently got one going on?
