  4. 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.

  6. The Board of Directors of the American Institute of Architects, Houston passed the following Position Statement at its regular meeting on April 10, 2007. The statement will be presented to the Mayor and City Council tomorrow, April 17, by AIA Houston member Peter Boudreaux, AIA, of Curry Boudreaux Architects. AIA Houston POSITION STATEMENT April 10, 2007 RE: The Center Serving Persons with Mental Retardation Site Lease / Potential Sale The American Institute of Architects, Houston does not support the sale and demolition of the buildings of the Center Serving Persons with Mental Retardation located at 3550 West Dallas. The Center and the City of Houston are in disagreement over the validity of the site lease, where the Center's architecturally significant facilities are located. Invalidation of the lease may result not only in the destruction of the homes of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities but also the demolition of these historically important works of Houston architecture, which anchor a visible site in heart of the city. The current buildings and prominent site comprise first-class urban design and environmentally propitious use of open land, both concepts AIA Houston supports in general. The Center buildings are important examples of the architectural trend called the New Brutalism. They occupy a significant place in the history of Houston architecture, particularly in the wake of the recent demolition of the Houston Independent School District Headquarters on Richmond Avenue. The New Brutalism was a modernist architectural movement inspired by the work of Le Corbusier that flourished internationally from the 1950s to the 1970s. New Brutalist buildings usually are formed with striking repetitive angular geometries and are often constructed of rough, unadorned poured concrete. Howard Barnstone and Eugene Aubry designed the Center for the Retarded (1966), as it was originally called. The Cullen Residence Hall (1978) is the work of S.I. Morris & Associates. These architects are significant in Houston's history and these particular buildings are especially important because they represent a high standard of design in service to a community that has been traditionally under served. The buildings are in good condition and will serve their function for a significantly long future. Together Barnstone & Aubry designed several brilliant Houston buildings such as Rothko Chapel (1971); Guinan Hall, Univ. of St. Thomas (1971); Media Center, Rice University (1970); and 3811 Del Monte (1969). Both architects individually are also well-known for their work. S.I. Morris headed a string of firms (including Morris*Aubry), the successor of which is Morris Architects. The full body of Morris work touches almost all of segments of Houston architecture from the Astrodome (1965) to award-winning skyscrapers, to public buildings such as the Central Library (1975) to small houses. Transactional costs for the Center Serving Persons with Mental Retardation to build a new facility will take away from monies and services that this special needs population urgently requires. The Center for the Retarded, a non-profit organization, invested $7 million (1960's dollars) in the buildings, which probably cannot be recouped (in today's dollars). The $26 million estimated sale price of the land would fund only a portion of the needs for a new facility of comparable size and quality. The cost of comparable new facilities would mirror the inflation rate of the land and construction cost. Loss of this site and its buildings would entail a substantial net loss to the Center and adversely affect its ability to maintain its present level of service. Therefore, because of the outstanding architectural significance of this campus, the Board of Directors of AIA Houston recommends that the City of Houston renew its lease with the Center Serving Persons with Mental Retardation so that the Center may remain in its current location and continue to provide essential services to the citizens of Harris County.

  14. Oct. 29, 2004, 11:27PM Next incarnation for aging eyesore Condominiums may take place of hotel rooms By NANCY SARNOFF Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle A longtime downtown Houston eyesore, which was once the high-rise home to a transcendental meditation society, has been sold to an investment group that wants to turn it into condominiums. A partnership led by Don Nicholas of LandCo Properties purchased the 30-story Days Inn building on St. Joseph Parkway between Milam and Travis on the southern end of downtown. "An ugly duckling downtown will become a swan," said Nicholas, whose group is still studying what to do with the building. The property was built in the 1970s as a Holiday Inn and later converted to a Days Inn before it was taken over by a group led by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who gained worldwide fame in the 1960s when he became the spiritual adviser for the Beatles. Located on the south side of downtown, the property was never successful as a hotel because it sat too far away from downtown corporations, hotel analysts have said. Nicholas and his partners have experience redeveloping old buildings. The group converted a structure in Colorado Springs to CityWalk Downtown, a residential building. Units were priced from the low $100,000s to more than $300,000. Nicholas said the Days Inn property reminded him of a larger version of the Colorado project. "It doesn't have a beautiful view of the Rockies, but it still has beautiful views of the city side and park side," he said. Tepid sales of downtown condominiums haven't stopped developers that see Houston as an up-and-coming residential market. Last month, Silvestri Investments purchased an old brick warehouse just blocks from Minute Maid Park, where it is building out at least 50 condominiums. And Randall Davis is planning to convert his St. Germain apartments on Main Street into for-sale units. He's selling the apartments for $180,000 on average and offering 100 percent financing. "I think people would like the opportunity to buy a condo in downtown Houston," he said. "Especially if it's priced right." The Maharishi, the founder of transcendental meditation, bought the Days Inn property in the early 1990s for a reported $2 million. It was renamed Heaven on Earth Inn, and the Maharishi's brand of meditation was taught there. But the hotel fell into disrepair and became a dingy blemish on downtown's skyline. It has sat vacant since the late 1990s. Adam Brackman and Jeff Kaplan of Wulfe & Co. brokered the sale.

  17. (Katy, Texas) October 8, 2015 – The City of Katy is pleased to announce that the Katy Development Authority has taken a key step forward in the development of the Boardwalk District (as shown in the accompanying rendering) by entering into an agreement with Sueba USA Corporation for the development of a 22-acre parcel located adjacent to Katy Mills Mall. Sueba USA Corporation intends to use the parcel to construct a high quality mixed-use development consisting of loft living space, retail and restaurant facilities, and a public plaza. Sueba USA Corporation’s development will be a strong addition to the Boardwalk District which will also include a convention center, hotel, and restaurant row, all anchored by an 89-acre nature park with a central lake, boardwalks, nature preserves, and a 2-mile walking trail system. Construction of the nature park will commence this winter with an anticipated completion and public opening by the end of 2016. Katy Development Authority and Sueba USA Corporation are excited to be joint participants in the construction of the Boardwalk District — a project that will provide Katy residents and visitors an additional first class development to live, work and play. Katy Development Authority was formed by the City of Katy, Texas to promote economic development through public-private partnerships that support the completion of public infrastructure and high quality private development. Sueba USA Corporation is a Houston based real estate development company that is an established leader in the acquisition, development, construction, and management of both residential and commercial real estate.

  21. Houston Business Journal From the April 11, 2005 print edition Atlanta condo converter makes buy near Medical Center Jennifer Dawson An Atlanta-based firm that specializes in converting apartments into condominiums has completed the first of three planned deals involving a total investment of $86 million in Houston properties. Choice Condominiums spent $24 million last month to buy the Braeswood Park apartments from Denver-based Archstone Smith. The property is located near Main and South Braeswood, near the Texas Medical Center. Choice will spend $2.5 million to renovate the apartments and convert them into condos. The condo converter, which acquires properties through various affiliated companies, is close to buying two additional complexes for $30 million each, says Ron Lozoff, member/manager of Choice Condominiums. Lozoff would not disclose the properties' names, but acknowledges that Choice Condominiums has another 210-unit property under contract in the Medical Center area. The new four-story building that sits atop a two-story parking garage will be purchased once construction is finished in August, Lozoff says. One industry expert speculates that the Texas Medical Center property in play is a project from the Dinerstein Cos. that has not yet been announced. Jack Dinerstein, an executive with the Houston-based apartment development and management company, confirms construction of the new property, but will not say whether it is being purchased for conversion. The Valencia is coming out of the ground at 1711 Old Spanish Trail. Dinerstein believes the high-end apartment units -- located across the street from Woman's Hospital of Texas -- will be popular because of their proximity to Medical Center institutions and the light rail. "We're just hundreds of feet from the rail system," Dinerstein says. "We have tremendous visibility. We're 75 feet tall. We have wonderful views of the Medical Center." Founded in 1955, the family-owned Dinerstein Cos. operates apartment complexes in 27 states, employs more than 400 people and is considered to be the largest builder of off-campus student housing in the country. Meanwhile, Choice Condominiums also plans to complete a deal in May to purchase an unnamed 27-story tower in the Galleria area that contains close to 100 units, Lozoff says. Industry speculation points to The Bristol on McCue as the property that Choice Condominiums is buying. Located at 3350 McCue just south of Richmond, The Bristol was originally constructed as condominiums, but now operates as a full-service apartment building. The 96-unit Bristol was built in 1983 and reportedly has a high occupancy level. Making a choice Apartment complexes on the sales block are attracting quite a bit of attention. A few condo converters are competing for the properties, but most potential buyers are institutions looking to place investment capital. David Mitchell of Apartment Realty Advisors, which represented Archstone Smith in the sale of Braeswood Park, says 30 parties bid on that multifamily complex. "There is a lot of institutional capital chasing real estate deals in the Medical Center," Mitchell says. "That's why we received so many offers." Choice Condominiums was the highest of the bidders -- 10 percent to 15 percent of whom were interested in converting the units to condos, Mitchell says. "Condo converters usually offer a premium versus typical apartment owners," says Mitchell, who brokered the deal with colleague David Oelfke. Butch Novy of Houston-based Novy Investments Inc. represented Choice Condominiums on the sale, which took about six months to complete. Apartment sales take longer and are more complicated when condo conversion is in the works, Mitchell says. The Braeswood Park complex consists of 240 units built in 1985 that will be converted into condominiums. Another 36 units were added in 1999, but deed restrictions prevent those from being converted to condos until 2009. Lozoff plans to sell off those apartment units as a group. Choice Condominiums plans to begin selling units in Braeswood Park in two months for prices between $100,000 and $160,000, Lozoff says. The firm was attracted to the property due to prior accomplishments in the area. "It's directly across the street from City Plaza, where we had great success," Lozoff says. "We really understand and know the Medical Center." The new $86 million local investment does not include the firm's property at 2400 McCue in the Galleria area. Choice Condominiums purchased the 200-unit complex last September for more than $30 million. jdawson@bizjournals.com
  22. 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.
  23. I heard from someone in the real estate community that this property traded hands. Does anyone know what the new owners plans are? I believe the restaurant depot store has already shut down.
