Public hearing to be held at the Southside Place City Hall Council Chambers, 6309 Edloe Ave., Southside Place, Texas, on Tuesday, January 29 at 7pm. Southside Place wants allow 45 townhomes (3-1/2 stories tall) to be built at 3747 Bellaire Blvd. (the corner of Bellaire Blvd. at Auden/Braes -- the former location of Shell Oil Research). They are seeking to rezone the property from LIM (Low Intensity Mixed Use) to PD (Planned Development) and also would like to break the building height restrictions. Houses and townhomes in that area have been limited to 2-1/2 stories in the past, but the developer (5177 Builders, Ltd., dba Lovett Homes) wants to make these new townhomes 3-1/2 stories high. People in the area, including the residents of the 3800 block of Gramercy which is located behind the Shell Oil property, have raised a number of concerns. While people welcome the land being developed and new homes being built, they question the number and height of the proposed units. Residents are worried about increased traffic; overcrowding at the two neighborhood schools Mark Twain Elementary and Pershing Middle School; overtaxing of the existing infrastructure (electric, water, sanitary sewer, gas); safety issues (for the Southside Volunteer Fire Dept. and Southside police); not to mention the aesthetic appearance of 3-1/2 story tall buildings crowded next to the busy street of Bellaire Blvd. There also concerns that as to what might happen later on to the middle parcel of land (where the main Shell Oil building and water tower are now located) and the land parcel next to the Old Farm Ditch (which is currently a parking lot and some service buildings). What happens now with the corner property might very well determine what happens later for the rest of the Shell Oil property. People who are interested in the future of this property and the neighborhoods of Southside and Braes Heights should attend the meeting.
New townhouse community being built at the intersection of San Felipe and Revere. Will be 10 four story townhouses ranging in size from 5,000 square feet to 7,800 square feet and start at $2.2 million. Going up right across from the Winfield Gate townhouse development which started construction some time last year. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Project-aims-at-ultra-rich-wanting-to-live-smaller-4676395.php
21 townhomes starting at $1.3 million+. "Embassy-like" security. Being built off of San Felipe just East of Kirby by Rohe and Wright. Looks very similar to their wildly successful Cheyne Walk (London-themed) development on Sunset Blvd. near the Sunset Clinic.

"The 8.1-acre tract, which was formerly home to two miniature horses, a donkey and other wildlife, is located in the southeastern section of Rice Military neighborhood and is bounded by Feagan, Renerman and Detering." The general Rice Military area has gone from stank to swank in a short time and this project looks like it will push the prices even higher. Donkeys would appear to be pretty much extinct over there these days, but the baying of the train will still remain.

"Two top competitors in Houston's high-end custom home-building industry are teaming up to build what will be the largest project of their careers as they hammer into the multi-unit market. Black Diamond Properties and Rohe & Wright Builders are planning a 122-unit townhome and single-family community on one of the last undeveloped tracts of land between downtown and the inner-Loop Memorial area. The 8.1-acre tract, which was formerly home to two miniature horses, a donkey and other wildlife, is located in the southeastern section of Rice Military neighborhood and is bounded by Feagan, Renerman and Detering. ..........................................
