  1. Nothing to report here but was walking by the building today and thought it would make an excellent loft conversion (image below). 500 Crawford (apartments at ballpark development) is two blocks to the east and the downtown development map shows a 28-story residential building by Marquette Land going up one block to the east. If this building converted to lofts, it would make for three consecutive blocks of residential. The ground floor of the building looks like its perfect for retail. However, there are major structural issues with the property and it was almost demolished in 2009: "It could cost $4.7 million to resolve the warehouse's structural issues, according to an August 2008 engineering report. "The problem with the [Hogan-Allnoch] building is that the brick is load-bearing brick," Ellwood says. "Unfortunately, with the settling of the earth, the building basically has been compromised. There are pretty substantial cracks going all the way from the bottom to the top." http://www.preservationnation.org/magazine/2009/todays-news/houston-spares-two-buildings.html The building is four stories and 50,000 square feet. Assuming that just the top three stories are converted to residential, the structural costs would be $125 / square foot before updating and interior improvements. My estimate of the all-in 1111 Rusk conversion is ~$230 / square foot. I'm not familiar with the costs of residential conversions but am wondering if this is a viable project if Harris County gave away the building for free and Houston provided Chapter 380 incentives. http://www.arch-ive.org/houston/texas1311/hoganallnoch.jpg
  2. Holiday Inn Express to go in at North Main and I-45--on next planning commission agenda. Not likely to be anything spectacular, but with the small footprint of less than an acre and a half, should be of some interest. SWC Norma and North Main. Grota Street officially abandoned by COH last month. 85 rooms. 6 floors.
  3. http://newregionalplanning.com/upload/property4/610_flyer_email.pdf It's two blocks west of river oaks district and a few north of Westheimer
  4. New Holiday Inn Express at 10500 Katy Freeway. This is almost completed. Didn't find a thread.
  5. Came across another hotel proposed for Galveston! Located at 33rd and Seawall near the Spot. Not as tall as I’d like! But definitely liking more development on the island!
  6. I hear that the Savoy is in contract. Anyone know anything further?
  7. Holiday Inn Houston S. NRG Area-Med Center At 8111 Kirby Dr. https://www.ihg.com/holidayinn/hotels/us/en/houston/houad/hoteldetail
  8. This 6-story hotel is proposed for Westheimer @ Hayes Rd. http://dr-architects.com/portfolio/holiday-inn-westheimer-houston-texas/
  9. Well it's finally happened, Fairfield has officially gone "full suburban" with this plat. It's a shame though, the Outlet Mall supplied a lot of potential for a mixed-use development, but the recession happened and Simons' plan's went with it.
  10. This isn't worthy of a new thread, but while the area is "losing" this hotel it looks like a couple of more modern chains are moving in/expanding (result of the Super Bowl?) There's a "Residence Inn Medical Center" planned for a vacant lot near Kirby & Main: ftp://PlatViewer:Viewer4DRC@edrc.houstontx.gov/2015/Applications/2015-0419/SubdivisionPlatPDF_81-15.pdf and based on permits the construction @ 9300 Main St is a new Holiday Inn Express Both of these chains already exist in the medical center, and not far from these sites. Clearly this isn't the area for some boutique hotel but talk about some unexciting developments
  11. This hotel just broke ground. I think it was announced earlier in the cycle; the rendering looks familiar: http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2014/12/shenandoah-to-welcome-its-first-full-service-hotel-in-2016/
  12. According to Swamplot, the SunSpree Resort hotel (operated by Holiday Inn) will be rebranded soon and renovated, and certainly did look a bit rundown. In fact, according to my resources, it was the "Galveston Beach Hotel" until late 2005 (did they even do any renovations?) What will be the next name of the hotel? Anyone know?
  13. what it *used* to look like: also, it seems like after clicking on the thumbnails, my browser automatically sizes down the pictures, so i had to hover over and size them back to 100%...
  14. Holiday Inn - Texas Medical Center At 6701 South Main St. Before the hotel was rebranded to Crowne Plaza - Texas Medical Center.
  15. what is the elevated highway in the fore and backgrounds doing there?
