  1. Anyone know what's going on next to the Federal Reserve on Allen Pkway?
  2. 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.
  3. Parkwood is at OST and Cambridge, just west of the VA Hospital. I understand that it's owned by Baylor, and is a large brick garden apartment complex with over 100 live oaks on the property, hardwoods, good square footage, and very reasonable rents (try $690 for 1233 sq. ft. 2 BR + den apt.) Most of the residents work in the Med Center, obviously. Many of them are post-docs and researchers, lots of Asian families. Lots of the families planted gardens there. Residents were given notice on September 1 to vacate by November 1. It's going to be demolished. Anybody know the history of this place? I think it was built around 1948. Who designed it? What's going up instead? I assume all the live oaks are history, they are already cutting them down on the VA's eastern border. If you want any free landscaping (crepe myrtles, wisteria, rubber trees, etc. ), now's the time to dig 'em up. Any good suggestions for apartment alternatives in the area?
  4. In case your in the med center area and wandering what the commotion is about, they supposedly have the prisoner escapee cornered at the Baylor Clinic 6620 Main. They have Main St. shut down.
  5. By that line of reasoning, the Woodlands is a south Houston wanna-be since Southern Star Amphitheatre was already an up and running outdoor concert venue when the Pavilion was built in the Woodlands. Or more realistically, the Woodlands is a long-ass drive from Sugar Land and the residents that live there have the money and inclination to tax themselves to get a venue a lot closer to them. The venue is going to be 6.500 seats which is about 1/3 the size of the Woodlands Pavilion - so it should cater to different acts and be more of a complement than a competitor. The corner of University and 59S is going to be interesting in the next few years. Every couple of years UH adds another building to their campus there, this is now going in there and I read somewhere that Fluor had secured a large chuck of land at that intersection (I want to say 50 acres but I might be wrong since I can't locate it right now) which sounds like they might be moving their campus from Highway 6 and 59S - I believe their lease there runs for about 5 more years.
  6. On a just-barely-related note: Many people know that Service Corporation International, the world's largest funeral home company, is headquartered in Houston. What most people don't know is that there is a cafeteria in the basement of their building. Even fewer people know its nickname is "The Coffin Cafe."
  7. New sign up for the lot behind Arabella at the SE corner of San Felipe and Post Oak Park Dr (aka the Target parking lot access road).

  9. 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.

  11. Two 12-story buildings close to being started on Shell's campus. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/print-edition/2012/05/04/shell-close-to-construction-on-two-new.html
  12. New to the Houston office tower world...and I'm wondering why Phoenix Tower (former Bank United Tower at 3200 Southwest Freeway) in Greenway Plaza seems like a bit of an under appreciated asset. It is a beautiful all-glass tower with nice angles and views in a seemingly strong location. The ownership is implementing some major changes including a new Jack Nicholas Putting Green on its 1/2 acre green space atop its enclosed all glass-facade parking garage. Additionally, the ownership is currently replacing the spandral panels on the Tower with contrasting silver bands of glass. Looks like a promising redevelopment project. Curious if people are favorable towards this tower?

  14. "ConocoPhillips refining offshoot Phillips 66 will build a new headquarters facility no more than 10 miles away from the company’s current location, “within the I-10 and Beltway 8 corridors,”......" http://swamplot.com/...ton/2012-03-20/ This will probably be a suburban campus-type property like the existing headquarters, but this is still cool to hear.
  15. The firm has picked up the old Arco building on Memorial, just west of Eldridge and southeast of the Westway Park complex. They'll demolish the structure this Summer, and are said to be considering redeveloping the plot as new Class-A office & garage space. The deal was previously teased last November.

  18. Houston Pavilions now has a website. Pavilions Here is an OLD render of the project. The renders on the site seem to correspond with the recent chronicle article about the project, unlike the old image above. The light rail on main is at the bottom of the picture and it looks like the new Hilton is also in the background. There are a few more random pictures on the site.
  19. I happened to be driving around today and noticed a new crane up along I10 at West Lake Park Blvd (south side of I10). Does anyone happen to know what's going up there?
  20. 11 stories isn't much of a "tower." But it's better than nothing. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2011/03/houston-pavilions-office-tower-gets.html

  22. Monday, October 22, 2007 - 2:58 PM CDT Houston developer begins new office buildings Houston Business Journal - by Jennifer Dawson Reporter Early success of the DNA Westway I office building in West Houston has prompted developer Dienna Nelson Augustine Co. to begin construction of two additional office buildings at a cost of $100 million in the Westway Park business park. Houston-based Dienna Nelson Augustine broke ground two weeks ago on DNA Westway II and III, which will contain a total 436,200 square feet of Class A office space. The 13.5-acre tract where the two offices are being built was the last available parcel in the 150-acre Westway Park at Beltway 8 and Clay Road that was developed by Houston-based Wolff Cos. full story
