  1. State board approves demolition of senior living facility at 2100 Memorial https://communityimpact.com/houston/heights-river-oaks-montrose/city-county/2019/09/05/2100-memorial-demolition/
  2. Does anyone know exactly how long the memorial park track is?
  3. 5-story multifamily apartments, leasing and tenant amenities with associated 7-story parking garage. Address is 816 Addicks-Howell Road.
  4. Discovered this while looking for more information on another project by Greystar. http://apmanagement.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/The-Apartment-Report_APC_7.8.13_PRESS-BREAK.pdf
  5. When I was shooting progress at the Gateway at Spring Valley project, I noticed a sign for a building of similar size called 1001 Campbell just across the road. Couldn't find much about it online. Most refers to a project being developed by Lincoln Property, but with a different design. This is the only one I see at present with the rendering on the sign: https://www.vts.com/spaces/1001-campbell-1001-campbell-rd-3rd-floor-suite-300
  6. New multifamily building proposed by Trammell Crow residential for the area bounded by Memorial, Sandman, Scotland and Reinerman St. Currently listed on the Planning Commission Agenda's Spreadsheet. http://mycity.houstontx.gov/plattrackerreports/rptDraftAgendaItems.aspx https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sandman+St,+Houston,+TX+77007/@29.7635894,-95.4126925,258m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x8640c74b3214cd73:0xc8d1c02665434a86!8m2!3d29.771178!4d-95.411564
  7. Think I'm reading this right? DMRE sold 5.46 Acres that closed on 2/21/2020. I see a demo report for an industrial building at 1128 Silber. Possible multifamily coming? https://dmre.com/property/1128-silber-5-46-acres/
  8. From today's Memorial section of the Chronicle. http://www.chron.com/neighborhood/memorial/news/article/Corridor-to-develop-master-plan-5576265.php The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center is planning a West Campus along Park Row to the east of the Addicks Park and Ride.

  11. Hi, I am considering moving from Philadelphia (just graduated) to Houston and living in Bayou on the Bend apartments on Memorial Drive in ZIP 77007. I will be living in a townhome on the top floor, with a designated garage on the same floor, so hopefully that should reduce flooding related issues. I will be commuting to my office in the Continental Tower building (Smith Street) Does anyone have experience living in this property or any knowledge about it? Also, wondering what the 77007 area is like, I am single and like to keep myself busy either doing chores, dining (mostly take out or a quick bite alone until I meet people), seeing movies, meeting people. I would also like to be proximal to supermarkets for daily needs, e.g. bread, toiletries as well as services such as a post office, dry cleaner, gas station. I will really appreciate any help that you have. Thanks, Andy
  12. NRP Group is developing a 4-Story and 326-Unit multifamily project in the Energy Corridor. https://www.nrpgroup.com/ Apparently it's the old Kickerillo family mansion. http://www.city-data.com/forum/houston/2850981-rumor-mill-what-will-built-site.html
  13. This will go up across the street from the Birdsall Memorial Apartments. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/columnists/sarnoff/article/Apartment-frenzy-near-Memorial-Park-intensifies-5023325.php?cmpid=btfpm

  16. Since we Don't have Subforums for various "Villages" or Spring Branch, so I'll be putting these here for now. In 2017 the residents of Spring Branch ISD passed a Bond Referendum. A major project, Memorial High School, is on the eve of a proposed high school reconstruction. In the first phase, several wings of the existing building will be demoed as well as existing tennis courts. The courts will be moved across the street to the east to make way for a 4 story expansion building and plaza. The other work consists of minor patchwork renovations which signals that this won't be only phase. I'm sure they will probably rebuild the entire school piece by piece. .

    Memorial Green

    http://midwaycompanies.com/img/annual-reports/140217_Midway_2013_AR-DLH.pdf on Page 16 Not sure the exact location but the development will include multi-family living, office space and retail/dinning space
  18. It seems unconscionable to me that the more we learn about CTE and it’s effects later in life, the more doctors are starting to see structural changes in the brain in younger and younger players, that there are still parents who enthusiastically sign their elementary age boys up for tackle football. Yet “Tully Bowl mania” seems even stronger this year. Memorial Drive from Gessner to Eldridge is littered with bandit signs supporting this or that team modeled after either an NFL or Division 1 college team. (And we had just gotten rid of all the political campaign signs). Parents have been driving around for over a week now with their SUVs bedecked with team flags and messages scribbled on their rear windows. When I did youth sports in elementary school I don’t remember the parents taking it so seriously or encouraging us to take it so seriously. Of course us Gen Xers weren’t raised by helicopter parents, and I wasn’t raised in the Memorial area, where even a high school homecoming dance is treated like a prom in importance and expense, and a prom is treated like a wedding. I wonder what will be worse for these young football players, the long term cerebral effects of tackling at a young age, or the effects on their egos of having their pee wee games given the importance of an Olympiad by their parents.
  19. OK. Maybe it is a loaded question, but I welcome your feedback. My husband and I need more space for our growing family, but are still wrestling with the decision on whether to make the move out to the burbs. We are in HISD and can do the Vanguard/magnet thing, but kinda liked the idea of our kids growing up and going to school with the same bunch of kids. Spring Valley seemed like a good option because it is zoned to Valley Oaks, Spring Branch Middle and Memorial, and is still close in. We are not millionaires, and I want to raise a grounded kid. Are we out of our league here? Does anyone have experience with these schools? Of course, academically, Memorial is excellent. Valley Oaks is recognized and Spring Branch Middle got an acceptable score this year, although they have performed better in the past. Thanks!
  20. http://www.trinity.edu/mkearl/death02/deat...e/01Define.html is likely to get a "modern" neighbor. The site is on Memorial Woods Drive, 77024, facing the Katy Freeway directly west and south of its interchange with 610. Kirksey has designed a 16-storey speculative office building and 1,500-space parking garage on what is currently First Baptist Houston's west lot. First Baptist's homepage suggests, "Parking off-site is one of the easiest ways that HFBC members can support the church's ministry. Doing so opens up on-site spaces for visitors, families with young children and individuals with physical limitations. Refer to the online map for available parking options, shuttle routes, and drop-off/pick-up locations." From the day we moved to this location (April 17, 1977), finding room for parking has been a challenge. In fact, the first published "master plan" for this site specified a parking garage on the west parking lot. Since that time, financial constraints and questions concerning feasibility have thwarted at least three attempts to construct a parking garage. This opportunity is the first that brings no additional financial obligation to HFBC and actually returns funds to HFBC in the form of lease payments to the church and the elimination to the church of parking leases and shuttle fees. In April of 2007, representatives of the Gerald Hines Company met with Pastor Gregg and several Deacons to explore the possibility of commercial development on our west parking lot which would include a parking garage containing about 1500 spaces. Following the meeting, Hines paid for a feasibility study including traffic, engineering and architectural issues. In a presentation to the Deacons in August of 2007, Hines asked for a vote of approval to investigate the economic viability of such a project. Now, in January of 2008, they are asking for a congregational vote ensuring the "surety of the proposal." In other words, if Hines can locate the tenants, Trustees of HFBC have the authority to enter into a ground lease. Garage construction would begin no earlier than January 2009 and take approximately 1 year to complete, while the office tower will begin upon 40% pre-leasing. Fun-to-learn-from bunches of renderings, site plans, floorplans and graphical timeline in http://www.houstonsfirst.org/pdf/hines.pdf , so I won't merely post the pictures.

  21. Behind the Nexen building they are currently constructing Johnathan's the Rub's new location. I think its an awesome step up from where they are now...a convenience store? Great food, great staff...love the place! Its tucked in the back corner of the prperty bordering Bunker Hill and Gaylord. Link to crude panorama http://i.imgur.com/3ZW3ugR.jpg
  22. Hey y'all. Thought I'd share some photos I took today of some new projects going up along Memorial Drive near Dairy Ashford. The Energy Corridor construction boom has really driven a lot of change in this area – especially compared to the past few years, which have been quiet. There's a local expectation that a lot of the garden apartments in the area will be eaten up by developers. The local Spring Branch schools have even discussed how the demographic shift will affect their student populations. Of course, this is all slightly controversial – there are some folks who are overjoyed at the prospect of these decaying and often crime-riddled complexes disappearing and others who are disturbed by the disregard for the lower-income families who are being pushed out of the area (the evictions were especially bad at Princeton Club a few months ago). This is a view of construction on the new "Aura Memorial" multifamily complex, just down the road from the recently-completed 7 Seventy complex on Eldridge. That parking garage is really monolithic; I feel kind of sorry for the people whose houses border it: Bordering this development is the former site of Princeton Club, which is still in the process of being torn-down. This will be replaced with 313 townhouses: Another view of the Princeton Club site. It's taken them a couple of months to clear out all the buildings: New retail going up nearby. This has replaced an old Citgo gas station: The stretch of Memorial from Eldridge to Kirkwood is slated for reconstruction starting next year. The City will be adding medians, new drainage and improved pedestrian amenities. You can read more about it here. A view down Memorial looking east towards Dairy Ashford (you can see the parking garage for Domain West rising in the background): Connell is developing the new Domain West complex. Four stories, 333 units. It's replacing a garden complex that was in really bad shape: Front view: I've also made a development map for the Energy Corridor which you guys can check out here. The Memorial superneighborhood also keeps their own map here, but it's not updated very frequently. Tried to make it as accurate as possible, but these projects aren't nearly as publicized as what goes on inside the Loop.
  23. There's an empty plot on Kingsride that used to be a barbecue restaurant (sign's still there) and a Jack in the Box before that. It was torn down about two years ago for a Starbucks to be built there, but it's still an empty plot. Anyone know what's the hold-up?
  24. 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.
