  1. I was just wondering, how far apart are these two developments and do you all thing these two sites could change the perception of Houston as a urban walkable city? Which development do you think has the greatest potential for development? Some say that the KBR site should become a park, but I believe that there could be a much better use for the site. KBR Site Regent Square

  4. Midway is planning on redeveloping the current Levey Park on Richmond between Eastside and Wakeforest into a mini CityCentre-type development that will include a 16-story office, lofts, retail and a park. i've heard additional development is possible as well. renderings should be floating around soon i'm sure.
  5. I noticed a few public notice signs at the apartments at Washington and Waugh announcing an application to redevelop. Anyone have any idea what's up with that?
  6. Here are my photos so far. I have some more I have to take of this really cool wall they have left standing all by itself. I keep wondering how it stays up because there is nothing to brace it. I guess they are waiting for it to fall on its own. I will head over there this afternoon and add to these. I took these two weeks ago: http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05.jpg From the TGI Friday's lot perpendicular to the Tollway. http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05-2.jpg Same angle. http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05-3.jpg Dillard's goin' bye-bye. http://www.tropicaltexans.com/images/Houston/tcfeb05-4.jpg The backside of the mall--JC Penney is gone already.
  7. Can anyone make out the location? Edit: Based on the surrounding buildings, this would take out the small strip center at 1801 Post Oak in Uptown. https://www.google.com/maps/place/1801+post+oak+blvd/@29.7474982,-95.4611141,3a,75y,87.71h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sXd5WoOxdOvHSXYP4vzM0OQ!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xff016152317bbfc1?sa=X&hl=en-us https://vinetower.com/project/luxury-hotel-residences-houston-tx/
  8. It looks like they're reintroducing retail at the corner of Rusk and Main: http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/Commissions/docs_pdfs/hahc/Application_Materials/April_MATERIALS/712_Main_Gulf_Building_App_Materials.pdf
  9. A 3-story office building with office & retail for Eado is currently on the agenda, renderings included.
  10. Earlier this year, there was a news item that Occidental (Oxy) was in talks to buy Conoco's (now ConocoPhillips) old headquarters on Katy Freeway. More recently the business media has reported that Oxy has put all of their Greenway Plaza space up for sublease and that the space will be available when Oxy moves to a "a newly constructed, owned property to the west.” Of course, not a single business reporter in this town has managed to discover or, so as we know, even inquire about, WHERE Oxy is building their new headquarters, how big it might be, who is the architect, etc etc. Has anyone heard anything?
  11. Can't believe I haven't posted this yet, Aggie Park is a redevelopment of the area between Kyle Field and the Corps Quad. It will include a lake, grand promenade leaded up to the east side of Kyle Field, and an event center for Ring Day.

  12. Midway has partnered with GrayStreet Partners, the San Antonio-based investment group specializing in urban commercial real estate, to transform the former Lone Star Brewery site into San Antonio’s newest up-and-coming lifestyle destination—Lone Star District. Complementing its unique setting in the heart of the local arts scene, amidst historic neighborhoods, unique landmarks and walkable public spaces, the project’s 32acres of carefully designed, multi-phase, mixed-use development will revitalize the site into an authentic community gathering space, welcoming a wide variety of tenants, local residents, workers and visitors of all ages and diverse cultures. Just 1.5 miles south of downtown, Lone Star District is located within San Antonio’s Southtown Arts District. Known for its vibrant art and restaurant scene including Blue Star, the area is also one of the most desirable residential areas in the city, with five neighborhoods including King William, Lavaca, Lone Star, Collins Garden and Roosevelt. The site borders the San Antonio River, boasting over a quarter mile of river frontage on the Mission Reach, and is adjacent to Roosevelt Park. ‍‍ https://www.midway.team/places/lone-star

  15. 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.

  16. Century Square is a 60-acre, mixed-use development that creates a premier district for the community to connect in an active, urban setting. It is the first of its kind in the Bryan-College Station area and breathes new life into a space with premier retail, local dining, and two boutique hotels tied together by an activated central gathering space. Century Square also features sophisticated, urban residential options with 100 Park. The innovative design has helped Century Square become a destination for the wider university community, residents, and visitors to the Brazos Valley region. https://www.midway.team/places/century-square

  20. I was eating at Chatters tonight (not bad food for the price, by the way, and no waiting for a table), and I noticed that at least one building at the Archstone Apartments across the street at 201 S. Heights had been demolished. Does anyone know what happened? Was there a fire or are they planning something else there? Thanks.
  21. Not sure if this is new or not but the architecture is pretty nice. Eco Centre at Lake Pointe is currently on schedule to be completed in late 2010. http://www.ecocentrelakepointe.com/index.html http://www.midwaycompanies.com/office-ecocentre.asp
  22. Has anybody heard or seen anything about this development. I went to the website www.kings-harbor.com and it looks to be something pretty decent looking. Along the lines of the Sugar Land and Woodlands town square but with Lake Houston as a back drop. That should make it stand out a bit from the others. They should put some harbor so boats could dock at the entrance. That would make it really appealing. I've always wondered why Clear Lake hasn't done anything like this yet. I would figure being so close to the water would make it a worthwhile proposition. Anyway the developer of this Kingwood project is the same group that recently purchased Town & Country mall and plans to turn that into a mix use project.
