  1. 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.
  2. Anyone know what's going on next to the Federal Reserve on Allen Pkway?

  5. There is a rumor about a new project in uptown, thought I heard some rumblings but thought I would test the waters here to see if I am just hearing things.
  6. 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.

  9. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. Driving along 610 North this morning, I noticed that the Drury Inn along the feeder road looked different. In fact, it looked noticeably better. It appears that they made some quiet renovations over the past few months: new exterior design that, while nothing amazing, is a welcome change from the previous, dated look, new signage near the road, and new exterior lighting. Not a huge story, but it's an indicator that businesses in the area are taking steps to update as Uptown grows.

  21. http://newyorkrealestate.citybizlist.com/yourcitybiznews/detail.aspx?id=95828 guessing something near the proposed intermodal transist station (or whatever its called).
  22. I thought so. The reason for my confusion is that Google Maps indicates 6900 Main is where the Wyndham Hotel is located.
  23. Noticed this old motel on S. Main for sale. The site is 1.98-acres. Would make for a good multifamily or medical office development. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/10015-S-Main-St-Houston-TX/25029789/
