  1. Rice announced the $30 million gift for College #11, Duncan College. Along with new residential college #10, McMurtry College, there will be two new LEED certified buildings for Rice (and its first Gold certification). http://www.media.rice.edu/media/NewsBot.as...;SnID=417075778 http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/stories...63&ana=e_du
  2. Does anyone on this forum know what the giant Silo near Braeswood/Pressler in the Medical Center is? It looks like a construction site, but I didn't see whos building.
  3. According to page nine of the pdf file below, a 35-Story apartment tower is planned for Block 35. Block 35 is bounded by Louisana, Preston, Milam and Congress. http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/Commissions/docs_pdfs/draft_reports/Ia_900_Preston_New_Const_Defferal_DRAFT.pdf Rendering & info as of 7/2014: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Record-size-residential-project-set-to-rise-5621007.php?cmpid=btfpm
  4. I only just recently saw this beautiful cathedral on Woodway near Sage the other day. It is absolutely beautiful! I didn't think they built stuff like this anymore. Just wanted to share if you haven't seen it. I don't know how to post photos so here's a link to the website with a few interior photos. http://www.stmartinsepiscopal.org/photos/archive-c.jpg http://www.stmartinsepiscopal.org/2004-fol.htm
  5. Houston Country Club sure does have a lot of permitted work. I see permits for 1 Potomac Dr. almost daily. https://www.houstoncc.com/
  6. I was driving on the West Loop last week and noticed construction at the Episcopal High School campus. I was going too fast to actually look closely, however after checking their website, it appears a new building is being erected on the northwest corner of the property. Does anyone know what the fate of the original 1955 Marian High School building is? Looks like the 1930's convent and chapel are safe......for now.
  7. Texas Medical Center Commons provides oasis for staff, visitors Thora Qaddumi Houston Business Journal Work began this week on a new phase of the building that has become the cornerstone of the Texas Medical Center -- the John P. McGovern Texas Medical Center Commons. Over the next five months, an enclosed skyway connecting the Commons with the newly completed M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center will be built, and the McGovern Gardens, a landscaped outdoor dining area, will take form. Full story
  8. Anyone remember Swamplot reporting River Oaks Baptist School was thinking about building a parking garage? ROBS took the former Walgreens spot at the corner of Westheimer & Weslayan. The land has been vacant for a few years. Wonder if they changed their plans or need funding? Taken today
  9. Well, well, well, Mr. Finger has let the cat outta the bag. Hopefully this one comes to fruition. So any comments on the style from what we can see?? 37 stories is pretty significant. Especially for a downtown residential rental tower. If the occupancy is absorbed quickly, then I think that we will see more towers sooner rather than later--and I would not be surprised if many of them were apartments with the intention of converting to condos later. It also looks as if Finger and Turnberry could be positioning themselves to have the tallest buildings completed in Houston since ??? When was the last time Houston has a building completed of at least 38 stories??
  10. Strake Jesuit's campus is getting bigger and more dense with a new large addition to the campus. They really like to adhere to their core architectural theme, and I guess it makes for a cohesive looking campus. Loyola Hall will be their biggest academic building. Its going to be where the soccer field is between building 8 and 20. Little known fact, originally the entrance is where Fiesta is now, but financial troubles forced Strake Jesuit to sell that land, as well as the land behind where apartment buildings are now. They recently reacquired the lot, number 21, which were also apartments. If you've ever visited Strake Jesuit, you know it doesn't have a proper entrance, per se, and that's the reason. Its like entering a shopping mall. If you're wondering why there are so many individual buildings, Strake Jesuit wanted to give the campus a college like setting with individual buildings for different departments. https://strakejesuit.myschoolapp.com/app/detail/video/5602611
  11. Looks like Pelican has a new project once The Wilshire is finished. 17 stories and 58 units. There's a render in PaperCityMag but I am too dumb to figure out how to post it here. Expecting to break ground summer of 2016. http://www.papercitymag.com/interiors/the-homey-high-rise-new-houston-tower-6300-woodway-places-comfort-over-gadgets/#2

  13. looks like this one flew under the radar: http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2013/12/office-building-to-replace-galleria-area-wedding-venue/?cmpid=hpts trying to hit the same niche market Hines' is having so much success with at their new San Felipe building across from River Oaks. i think it's a good call - simialr buildings in the area aimed at the ultra-high end clientele such as redstones Houstonian building and Park Laureate remain consistently well-leased with relatively high rates.
  14. Jackson & Ryan Architects We opened our doors in 1986 and to this day remain captivated by what is ahead. For a generation, we have enjoyed receiving many awards, but of greater value to us is the trust of our clients. A good word from any of them is worth more than all the words we could say ourselves. Our reputation is our lifeblood. We never rest on a particular style or successful design. The project, the site, and most of all, the individual client serve as our guide to what is possible. We approach each new project in this way. Distinguishing Jackson & Ryan Architects is that one team will shepherd a project all the way through completion, rather than handing it off from department to department. When the people who first envision an idea are involved in its becoming a reality, all details are addressed in light of that original intention. Now that you know something about us, we'll let our work tell the rest of the story.
  15. http://www.chron.com...ss/7603762.html I'm curious what a Hines multifamily complex would look like. Here is the 16-story one in Chicago... http://chicago.curbed.com/archives/2011/04/01/demolition-underway-at-old-town-site-construction-imminent.php#n-wells-demolition-6

  17. Children's Museum to unveil major expansion Houston Business Journal - 12:10 PM CDT Fridayby Greg BarrHouston Business Journal The Children's Museum of Houston intends to double its exhibition space and boost its community outreach programs in a $35 million expansion project. The downtown museum, at 1500 Binz, has raised about $20 million in its capital campaign so far. It intends to reach out to the business community to help raise 10 percent of the goal, or $3.5 million, to support its new science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, exhibits. The museum will unveil the expansion plans at an Oct. 17 press conference. Among the new STEM exhibits is PowerPlay, created in partnership with Baylor College of Medicine, ................................... Another STEM exhibit, Invention Convention, developed in cooperation between the M.I. T. Media Lab and the University of Houston, among others, will allow visitors to create inventions and share them with others. Other new exhibits in the expanded museum will include Kidtropolis, a child-size city, an outdoor Water Power exhibit and an expanded Tot Spot exhibit for toddlers up to age 3. ..................................... The Children's Museum of Houston is ranked as the country's No. 2 children's museum by Child magazine. http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto...ml?surround=lfn _____________________________ Good, the current museum is way too small for a city this size.
  18. Fantastic views of the city and in the perfect location to everything. Not to mention a wonderful staff! This I like. http://www.themuseumtower.com/home.html
