  1. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/2014/11/tmc-outlines-potential-plans-for-new-research.html?ana=twt
  2. The one along Holly Hall crosses freight tracks owned by UP or Houston Belt & Terminal, but the frequency of trains is very low and almost never during the daytime. At night, small trains drop off and pick up cars at the Grocers Supply Co. distribution center on Holcombe, which is where the line currently ends, but that is the only user of the tracks of which I'm aware.
  3. Someone please tell me more about this project. This would be for the Texas Medical Center at the corner of Main & Holcombe, where the Bank of America building sits. http://www.slideshare.net/QingjingZuo/smilodon-rendering-collection-20154-47319504
  4. Parkwood is at OST and Cambridge, just west of the VA Hospital. I understand that it's owned by Baylor, and is a large brick garden apartment complex with over 100 live oaks on the property, hardwoods, good square footage, and very reasonable rents (try $690 for 1233 sq. ft. 2 BR + den apt.) Most of the residents work in the Med Center, obviously. Many of them are post-docs and researchers, lots of Asian families. Lots of the families planted gardens there. Residents were given notice on September 1 to vacate by November 1. It's going to be demolished. Anybody know the history of this place? I think it was built around 1948. Who designed it? What's going up instead? I assume all the live oaks are history, they are already cutting them down on the VA's eastern border. If you want any free landscaping (crepe myrtles, wisteria, rubber trees, etc. ), now's the time to dig 'em up. Any good suggestions for apartment alternatives in the area?
  5. Hotel boom on the way for the TMC! http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2015/12/hotel-planned-for-texas-medical-center-area.html Houston-based Medical Center Fannin OST Investments LP recently bought 7329 Fannin and 1803 Old Spanish Trail from Houston’s Dixon Financial Services Ltd. Tom Condon Jr. with Colliers’ Woodlands office represented the buyer, andLouis Smith with Houston-based SRC Properties represented the seller. The buyer plans to redevelop the 1.3-acre site into two nationally branded hotels, totaling 325 rooms. A restaurant is planned for the ground floor, and parking will be on the upper levels, according to Colliers. The project is scheduled to break ground in late 2016, and construction is expected to be complete by mid-2018, according to Colliers. HarDam Hotels LLC President James Guillory Jr. of Houston will develop the project.
  6. Couldn't find anything about this. IMG_0723 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr IMG_0724 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr IMG_0722 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr IMG_0721 by Not.Larry.Dierker, on Flickr
  7. Noticed this today. @Lux was mentioning this area today. I also don't see how these buildings a long Lyndon and Lehall streets are still standing. Very prime estate. https://www.compass.com/listing/1100-lyndon-street-houston-tx-77030/669710930048328089/ 8,000 sq. ft lot in a prime location in the medical center with a 1,512 sq. ft. (HCAD) warehouse. Ideal for multiple uses whether you would like to have new developments, commercial businesses, or medical related healthcare facilities. In the heart of the Texas Medical Center and walking distance to the newly proposed 3.7 million sq. ft. TMC3 Bioresearch Campus. Great piece of land with a tremendous future.
  8. Sits outside the TMC W. Leland Anderson Campus and Levit Green on Dixie road. https://houstontx.gov/housing/publiclegal/notices/2020/07/PGM-MULTIFAMILY_DEVELOPMENTS_JULY_2020_CDBG_DR-E-071720.pdf Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3232-Dixie-Dr-Houston-TX/8356546/

  10. Suburban-style hotel coming to the TMC, meh. http://www.arch-con.com/division/hilton-garden-innhome2/
  11. I was reading Berkadia's 1Q20 – Houston Construction Pipeline Report today and noticed a new multifamily listening. Proposed at 281-Units. https://www.berkadia.com/research-and-resources DMRE's website mentioned the closing date on the land was 1/9/2019. https://dmre.com/property/knight-rd/ There was a change of ownership listed on HCAD. Now listed as AvalonBay Communities. https://www.avaloncommunities.com/ Loopnet link: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/Knight-Rd-Fannin-St-Houston-TX/13903845/
  12. Link to article. Wow, not only am I getting a 1.1-million-square-foot teaching hospital within walking distance of my condo and a connection to N. Macgregor via Cambridge, but I'm also getting a 315,000-square-foot facility just down the street! I was hoping for more verticality, but I can live with it.
  13. Subdivision Plat filed for multifamily at 1933 Dryden SubdivisionPlatPDF_19-0072-PLAT.pdf Rather unfortunate as these two homes currently sit on the site.
  14. Have been searching thru Google images & several forums w/in HAIF w/out much success. In the past the good folkes of the Historic Houston Forum have always come through w/some really good photos of old historical Houston prior to tear down or total abandonment. So as time permits would someone be able to provide some photos or perhaps a link to go & view?
  15. Houston Business Journal From the April 11, 2005 print edition Atlanta condo converter makes buy near Medical Center Jennifer Dawson An Atlanta-based firm that specializes in converting apartments into condominiums has completed the first of three planned deals involving a total investment of $86 million in Houston properties. Choice Condominiums spent $24 million last month to buy the Braeswood Park apartments from Denver-based Archstone Smith. The property is located near Main and South Braeswood, near the Texas Medical Center. Choice will spend $2.5 million to renovate the apartments and convert them into condos. The condo converter, which acquires properties through various affiliated companies, is close to buying two additional complexes for $30 million each, says Ron Lozoff, member/manager of Choice Condominiums. Lozoff would not disclose the properties' names, but acknowledges that Choice Condominiums has another 210-unit property under contract in the Medical Center area. The new four-story building that sits atop a two-story parking garage will be purchased once construction is finished in August, Lozoff says. One industry expert speculates that the Texas Medical Center property in play is a project from the Dinerstein Cos. that has not yet been announced. Jack Dinerstein, an executive with the Houston-based apartment development and management company, confirms construction of the new property, but will not say whether it is being purchased for conversion. The Valencia is coming out of the ground at 1711 Old Spanish Trail. Dinerstein believes the high-end apartment units -- located across the street from Woman's Hospital of Texas -- will be popular because of their proximity to Medical Center institutions and the light rail. "We're just hundreds of feet from the rail system," Dinerstein says. "We have tremendous visibility. We're 75 feet tall. We have wonderful views of the Medical Center." Founded in 1955, the family-owned Dinerstein Cos. operates apartment complexes in 27 states, employs more than 400 people and is considered to be the largest builder of off-campus student housing in the country. Meanwhile, Choice Condominiums also plans to complete a deal in May to purchase an unnamed 27-story tower in the Galleria area that contains close to 100 units, Lozoff says. Industry speculation points to The Bristol on McCue as the property that Choice Condominiums is buying. Located at 3350 McCue just south of Richmond, The Bristol was originally constructed as condominiums, but now operates as a full-service apartment building. The 96-unit Bristol was built in 1983 and reportedly has a high occupancy level. Making a choice Apartment complexes on the sales block are attracting quite a bit of attention. A few condo converters are competing for the properties, but most potential buyers are institutions looking to place investment capital. David Mitchell of Apartment Realty Advisors, which represented Archstone Smith in the sale of Braeswood Park, says 30 parties bid on that multifamily complex. "There is a lot of institutional capital chasing real estate deals in the Medical Center," Mitchell says. "That's why we received so many offers." Choice Condominiums was the highest of the bidders -- 10 percent to 15 percent of whom were interested in converting the units to condos, Mitchell says. "Condo converters usually offer a premium versus typical apartment owners," says Mitchell, who brokered the deal with colleague David Oelfke. Butch Novy of Houston-based Novy Investments Inc. represented Choice Condominiums on the sale, which took about six months to complete. Apartment sales take longer and are more complicated when condo conversion is in the works, Mitchell says. The Braeswood Park complex consists of 240 units built in 1985 that will be converted into condominiums. Another 36 units were added in 1999, but deed restrictions prevent those from being converted to condos until 2009. Lozoff plans to sell off those apartment units as a group. Choice Condominiums plans to begin selling units in Braeswood Park in two months for prices between $100,000 and $160,000, Lozoff says. The firm was attracted to the property due to prior accomplishments in the area. "It's directly across the street from City Plaza, where we had great success," Lozoff says. "We really understand and know the Medical Center." The new $86 million local investment does not include the firm's property at 2400 McCue in the Galleria area. Choice Condominiums purchased the 200-unit complex last September for more than $30 million. jdawson@bizjournals.com
  16. Noticed a demolition permit months ago. Been watching the area since. Today I finally see the demo has started.
  17. This is across the street from the proposed Hilton TMC hotel. It's a large space for rent. Wonder what will happen the building?
  18. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2011/03/menninger-clinic-to-break-ground-on.html This may have already been posted but I coudln't find it.
  19. Apparently Houston Methodist purchased 1.5 acres at Main and Holcombe. While researching this I found the old concept plan by Norvin. The Norvin land turned into TAMU's Innovation Plaza, but still featured a future tower where Bank of America sits. You can see the tower on the lower left.
  20. On Tuesday, March 21st, 2006, KinkaidAlum posted: "The antenna at One Shell Plaza reaches to around 1,000 feet. There are several photos on emporis.com that show the antenna to reach almost the exact same height as Wells Fargo. The one building that has always confused me is the St Luke's Medical Tower. It's official height is listed at 316 feet. Apparently, the needle spires aren't counted in the height, but even without them, 316 feet seems way too short. Especially when you consider that the nearby Marriott Hotel is listed at 265 feet. There's NO WAY St Luke's is only 51 feet taller than the Marriott even without the spires!" I checked this out from multiple angles tonight. The question is not whether or not St Luke's is over 316 feet; it is whether or not (including spires) it is under or over 440'. With the spires I am certain that it is no shorter than the recent Memorial Hermann Medical Plaza. Edit: skyscraperpage and E______ both quote 316/25st., but Baylor College of Medicine says 29 storeys. The architect's website doesn't indicate one way or the other, saying only, "The Tower is a sophisticated, state-of-the-art medical facility and teaching hospital which captures the spirit and character of Houston and the adjacent Texas Medical Center. Twin octagonal towers respond to this dual frontage and help define the urban environment. The circular roofs and spires bring each tower to a dynamic terminus." There's a nice picture, though, of St Luke's as the only building visible from Hermann Park. A much more personable presence than the hulking Memorial Hermann.
  21. Looking on satellite, where is the next area TMC will expand? Rice owns property directly across from the TMC. Would the two ever come to an agreement? Spin-off of this thread: Could TMC Development Ever Spill Into Hermann Park?
  22. 9-Story hotel going propsed at the corner of Lehall Street & Bertner Ave in the Texas Medical Center. There's a rendering on the current Planning Commission Agenda.
  23. Found this cool concept building for the Texas Medical Center the other day.
  24. I can't believe we don't have a thread for this! (or do we?) Here are a few photos I took yesterday. http://www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/gallery/1237377429/gallery_3613_2_91212.jpg http://www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/gallery/1237377429/gallery_3613_2_195305.jpg
