http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/m...politan/2926288 Nov. 30, 2004, 11:32PM Bayou Place may add residences The developer is considering high-rise units By RON NISSIMOV Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle The Bayou Place entertainment complex that has helped revitalize Houston's downtown with pedestrian-friendly restaurants and theaters may be joined by lofts or apartments. Developer David Cordish of Baltimore, who transformed the former east hall of the Albert Thomas Convention Center into Bayou Place, is considering building high-rise residences in the adjoining west hall, which is vacant, according to Houston city documents. The city owns the former convention center that closed in 1988, and in 1991 it gave Cordish a 60-year lease to redevelop it. After years of delays, Bayou Place opened for a New Year's 1998 celebration along Texas Avenue. Cordish also was granted an option to develop the hall of the convention center west of Bagby, on the condition that any construction be substantially completed by Dec. 15, 2005, said Dawn Ullrich, director of the city's Convention and Entertainment Department. Cordish has asked for a three-month extension so he can conduct a feasibility study on building high-rise residential units on the property rather than developing more entertainment facilities. City Council is scheduled to vote on the proposed extension today. Cordish did not return calls from the Houston Chronicle. "We think it's an intriguing idea and one worth exploring," Ullrich said. She said she did not know what the possible residential structure would look like, but heard it might involve as many as 300 to 400 units. She said she did not know if it would involve demolition of the former convention center. Ullrich said the city is not planning to help fund the construction. She said even though the city owns the land, it would explore with Cordish the possibility of selling or leasing housing units that might be built. Under his lease, Cordish pays the city $50,000 a year in rent for the former east hall, plus 25 percent of profits, which account for an additional $40,000 a year, Ullrich said. The lease stipulates that Cordish would pay the city $25,000 a year for the former west hall, plus 15 percent of profits. Experts in the emerging downtown housing market said loft apartments next to the Bayou Place would be a welcome addition. "I think it's a pretty good idea," said Ric Campo, CEO and chairman of Camden real estate company that owns the 300-unit Camden Midtown apartment complex at Louisiana and McGowen. "It would be a great location, especially with the convenience of the location that is so close to restaurants and theaters." Campo and Stacy Hunt, another Midtown apartment developer, said that the market for downtown lofts has recently cooled because of the sluggish economy and because about 3,000 units have been built in the past several years. But they said the market should pick up by 2006 if the economy improves as expected. "For rental units right now, the market is saturated," said Hunt, a partner in the Greystar Real Estate Partners firm that manages the Calais Cortland Square apartment complex at Louisiana and Elgin. Minnette Boesel, owner of Minnette Boesel Properties, which brokers downtown housing units, said four development groups recently drafted a plan to try to increase the number of people living downtown to 20,000 by 2025. She said the proposed Bayou Place development "fits into the whole plan that has been developed. "Increasing the residential component downtown would enhance retail development downtown," she said. email@example.com
