    Pearl on Smith + New Whole Foods

    Pearl is really banking on Midtown. I think this brings the total count to 4 possible Pearl complexes in the area.

    The Recenter: Phase I & II

    This has been going up for months, couldn't find a topic about it. Southeast corner of Main St. and Alabama. Merge if necessary.
  8. Company modernizing sites on South College Avenue By CASSIE SMITH Doug Pederson and Jack Threadgill officially are turning a half-mile stretch of South College Avenue into Midtown. That's the surname given to five rental properties in Bryan that the pair are spending millions on renovating, hoping to turn it from what many described as an eyesore to a well-groomed area that will become a catalyst for future development. Twin City Properties Management Inc. plans to have a grand opening and ribbon cutting April 15 for the project. "We're transforming this neighborhood and it's going to be powerful," Pederson said. Pederson, co-owner of the real estate management company along with Threadgill, declined to detail how much they're spending on buying the complexes and then doing the massive upgrades. He did say that they're doing it without funding from the state, federal or U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The company is renaming Bryan Arms, Emerald Park, Monterey Oaks and Echols Street apartment complexes, along with a few houses, which will all be known as different variations of Midtown... "I'm absolutely convinced it's going to be spectacular," he said of the area along College Avenue that's bound by Coulter Drive and McKinney Street to the east and Rebecca Street to the west. Pederson said the company excels at buying older properties and modernizing them architecturally and aesthetically. Most of the complexes for the Midtown project were built in the 1960s and 1970s and will see the addition of central air and heating, new lighting, floors, roofs, plumbing and more. "All these properties together give us control of the neighborhood," he said, adding he wanted his tenants to feel comfortable and pleased with the surrounding area. Pederson bought all the properties along Hardy Street two years ago, which will be known as Hardy at Midtown, and is in the neighboring area. He said he also recently purchased several houses down South College Avenue, which will be known as Midtown Homes. The company, which started 20 years ago with one house and one property, recognizes that the Midtown revitalization is a wager, but Pederson said it's one they are willing to take. "The risk we're taking on here is huge. Everything is vacant," he said. ...The renovation The improvements will include adding washer and dryer connections, redoing the parking lots, fixing up the swimming pool and converting one-bed apartments to two, Pederson said. "We're looking to redo the property pretty much completely from top to bottom. Everything from roofs to flooring to plumbing and lighting fixtures," he said. Model units are scheduled to be available in March and construction should be complete in September, he said. Between Texas A&M and Blinn College, the student population controls a lot of the renting schedule, he said. "If it's not rented by Sept. 1, it will not rent. So we have no choice," he said. "It has to happen and it has to happen fast." The target audience for the units will be students, retirees, the working young and middle age, and single and married individuals, he said, adding it would be a melting pot of people. ...Pederson said he thinks the location for Midtown is perfect. "For me, there's something about being off the beaten path, but not too far," he said. Acting as a catalyst Pederson said city officials helped the company expedite the paperwork process. City Manager David Watkins said Bryan Arms was in awful shape when he first moved to the city. "What Pederson is doing to revitalize the area is exactly what the city is trying to encourage in older parts of the community," he said. "We are just absolutely thrilled like you can't believe at what he's doing," Watkins said. "Any time you go into an area that has a blighted image and someone improves the property, it encourages the adjoining property owners to do the same thing."...
  9. surgehomes.com Shows that 4001 Main may have plans for condos/townhomes. They also show condominium plans for 103 N. Jackson St. in downtown but I don't know if they have added any signage to that site...
  10. Does anyone know what the Midtown Redevelopment Authority is planning to do with all of the random lots they own? The odd thing is none of them are actually in Midtown. They're in East Downtown and Third Ward. I see 457 lots on HCAD. I'm just interested to know. Thanks for any insight! idtown redev.pdf
  11. (Posts moved from Louisiana and Elgin thread) dbigtex56 Well, I don't see anything at all....but here are a couple of pics of the site, I think. Here is a small project we've talked about across the street, but I couldn't find the thread.
  12. Anyone know if the construction staging area across from Weights & Measures in Midtown is a staging area for the Caroline St renovations, or a new development in of itself? I also heard it could be a staging area for the new Syn Group development down the street at 2403 Caroline which appears to be quite delayed (originally planned to open Fall 2017, haven't seen construction start yet but TABC sign up). The lot was on Loop Net after the Syn Group announcement and has since sold. There is also significant construction in the same lot as Noveau Antique Art Bar, next to the new Caydon high rise site. Possibly another bar/retail/restaurant?

    Baldwin Pierce Crossing

    Anyone know what's going on at the corner of Baldwin & Pierce, right across from Komodo? There's an existing building with a "for lease" sign in front, I believe it's offices. 1916 Baldwin St, currently owned by SMBHC LLC: http://hcad.org/reco...���^&bld=1&tab= I'm wondering what's going on with the empty tracts around that structure. For awhile the valets at Cyclone's were using them for parking but now the lots are all torn up, some trenching from the north corner of the lot south east to Baldwin (sidewalk is gone, actually, almost fell in the trench one night walking my dogs before they had fencing up). 1910 Baldwin (SMBHC LLC): http://hcad.org/reco...���^&bld=1&tab= 1914 Baldwin (SMBHC LLC): http://hcad.org/reco...���^&bld=1&tab= 211 Pierce (SMBHC LLC): http://hcad.org/reco...��^&bld=1&tab=2 The empty tracts all have hearings coming up next month. Just wondering if anyone knows what the plans are for these lots. SMBology (looks like an IT firm) is the only tenant I can find for 1916 Baldwin. Justin Singer is the founder and president, he's also listed as the director for SMBHC LLC so he owns all the land. http://www.smbology.com/About%20Us/Leadership%20Team
  15. Hey everyone. Still working on my Graduate Thesis and need some input via interview/survey. Tried posting this on r/Houston to get more people involved, but the subreddit sucks because anytime I post it auto removes it classifying it as spam! (seriously?) So thought I post this in a more reliable place...here. Since I'm not able to travel back home to conduct this survey/interview with people from the area I'm researching I was wondering if people within this community could possibly help. I would greatly appreciate it! You don't have to answer all the questions if you don't feel comfortable answering them. I would also like a picture if you can provide one. My focus area and site I'm analyzing is also in the link. I'm primarily looking at an area of Midtown/Downtown near I-45 (Pierce Elevated). Please try not to think to much while taking the interview. I want whatever comes first to your mind. I want honest answers. Its important for my research. At the end of my Thesis I'll link to it here in this subreddit and will be sure to give credit to those whom I use for my research. Here is a link to the interview: http://i.imgur.com/hnHoyUZ.jpg You can email me your interview and picture to this email address: derluminare@gmail.com Please comment if you have any questions or critiques.
  16. Howdy everyone! I'm about to begin my thesis project here in Germany this next semester, but I need some help. I've chosen a site in Houston because I wanted to do something related to home and an issue that is very important to the city (highways). Here is where the site is going to be located: Yes, I'm putting the project over the highway. This project will also take into account the proposed reroute and redesign of the highway. I need help with photos of the surrounding area and of the site from multiple angles at various times and at different levels of traffic (from nothing on the road to high traffic). Any help would be fantastic....sense....well I can't exactly go back home to do this myself. I can't offer much of anything in return other than a mention in my thesis in terms of credit for information given and images provided. I hope you guys can help if possible Thanks!

    Midtown Park on Gray Street

    Is the new midtown park fully open? The chain link fence is gone, people are using it, but one of the gates to the dog run is padlocked. (There's two gates but only one is padlocked)
  22. I walked by the old El Patio Xuco Xicana restaurant and they were putting up new siding over the aluminum addition that was build a few years ago. I always hated the aluminum addition. It looked REALLY tacky. But, the new siding actually looks really good. I don't know if that means a new tenant is moving in or if the owner is doing his own renovations.
  23. We live right in Midtown and have been wondering about this corner of the lot that has BRB, Drinkery ( Formerly Open City, Formerly Cheerz) for a while. Figured you guys could tell me what used to be here and maybe what's in store? The owners constantly replace the glass with wooden boards to keep the homeless out. Extremely busy area on the weekends, surprised they don't knock this building down and charge for parking like many kitty corner lots in the area. Thanks,
  24. This was mentioned in another thread but it definitely deserves it's own thread. The plans to reconstruct Bagby to help make Midtown a more pedestrian friendly area are being scrapped. http://innerlooped.com/1840/very-bad-news-for-bagby/#comments The Director of Public Works, Daniel Kreuger wants to make Bagby a three lane street to help make cars move faster. This will obviously mean there will be less room for expanded sidewalks and improved landscaping that were originally planned. Commuters interests' are once again being accomodated instead of the interests of residents, pedestrians, and small businesses. To me, it makes no sense since Bagby has always been a fast moving street in the first place. I guess they want cars to drive 45 mph instead of 35? Apparently, the fight is not yet over. http://innerlooped.com/1851/bagby-street-hoopla/ If you feel as angry as I do, please email the mayor, Annise Parker and the director of public works and tell them how you feel about making Bagby a 3 lane road before it's too late. Public works director Kreuger: pwe.director@houstontx.gov Mayor Parker: Mayor@houstontx.gov
  25. I guess the Pin-up workout place went out of business, which will disappoint the pervs that would gawk at women working out from across the street. The good news is that they still have a reason to stop by and visit this convenient location. I applaud them on their smart location choice as we all know that the key to success is knowing your neighborhood and it's needs. Hopefully this will help anchor this area and bring in other businesses that would complement the current neighborhood trajectory. I'm thinking a checks cashed, pawn shop, smoke shop, self-defense school, or pain management center would synergize well near this location. I also really dig their design choices. It's good to let people know what services you offer in big fonts. Heck the people that live across the street won't even need to leave their breakfast rooms! Awesome...
