  2. New sign up for the lot behind Arabella at the SE corner of San Felipe and Post Oak Park Dr (aka the Target parking lot access road).
  3. Houston-based AmReit has bought Uptown Park, a Galleria-area retail center developed by Giorgio Borlenghi's Interfin, for $68.8 million. http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/front/3208551
  4. Does anyone know exactly how long the memorial park track is?

  6. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Lennar-s-apartment-division-buys-Galleria-area-13841951.php Conflicting account of where exactly the site is located: The Gables project is SOUTH of the parcel that's on the corner of Westcreek/San Felipe and across from Arabella. Based on HCAD it appears that the lot is in fact on the corner of Westcreek/San Felipe. See Parcel A (BELOW)
  7. Noticed this on Loopnet. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/6101-Richmond-Ave-Houston-TX/19840613/
  8. We have known about this since July, but it was in the BLVD Place thread. With the first rendering, I decided to start it's own thread. POST OAK PLAZA TO GET A MAKEOVER Post Oak Plaza, the 130,000 square-foot shopping center located at Post Oak Boulevard and San Felipe, will soon undergo an extensive makeover. Improvements will include a new fa
  9. I am now living in Los Angeles, but on a recent trip to Houston, I saw the difference in retail outlets in the Galleria and even Highland Village. Both places have gotten pretty big chains and specialty stores, like Burberry, Dior, Bose, Jimmy Choo, and Luca Luca. Although most people don't care for this, since it is outside of most people's reach, I work in this industry, doing marketing for luxury brands, and I know that stores moving into a city at this pace signifies growth and confidence that the city is chic enough and diversified enough to open shop. In Houston, there have been 13 store openeings of a high caliber, those found in Rodeo Dr or 5th Ave. 10 years ago, that would have been impossible, I think that Houston is on the ap like never before. But those are just my thoughts. Though it is not the architecture phenomenon we all wish for, at least people visiting---for pleasure or business---will see the Gucci store or the Sony Style store and not feel that they are in a country town with big freeways. Not to up-play it, but this type of thing makes a difference when producers look for a city to host a show in, like the REAL WORLD or and awards show. It puts us on the cultural map. What do you guys think? Treader
  10. One day this shopping center will be redeveloped, so we may as well start this thread now. My guess is they will hold out until there is very little or no other places to redevelop along Post Oak. As of now, HCAD lists the the property valuation at $101 million. By comparison, an undeveloped block in the heart of downtown is $25 mil. Capitol Tower is listed as $125 mil. I can only imagine what they'll have to build to meet the land's value. As mentioned in the Galleria Green Space thread I started, I hope it includes a park. My personal dream is a north/south rectangular park abutting Post Oak about the same width as the parking lot, and maybe 1/2 to 3/4 the length, with highrises abutting directly up to a tree-lined walking path that runs along the edge of the park. The car entrances could be via an alley on the east side of the buildings. 20 years and another one or two cycles away?
  11. gene posted this in the BLVD Place thread in January... http://www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/i...st&p=225944 Now we have this... http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto...html?ana=e_ph#1 Hopefully it's not premature to post this in the Going Up! section.
  12. Highland Village is one of the best shopping areas in Houston. I think that Houston needs more of theses type of shopping areas. I just wish that the shopping was closer to the road (More Urban), but it's great how it is. Does anyone know of any new shopping areas going up that area comparable to Highland Village?
  13. Hey guys, this topic is started in one form or another every year or so, but I was strolling through the mall today, and figured I'd give this another shot. I'm wondering if anyone has any old pictures or information about stores in the galleria in the 1980s, or the 1970s. Specifically, I'm trying to recall what this "prank" store was called, that used to be located near the post office in the 80s, down the hall from where the haircut place Visible Changes is now. It was against that far wall though. I remember buying a "fart machine" there when I was in elementary school, but they had all sorts of crap like that - they specialized in it! Anyways, I more or less grew up in that mall in the 80s, yet I have very few memories of the actual stores. I do remember the old carpeting, and I do remember ash trays fixed to the old school railing throughout the mall. I remember the old movie theaters. Yes, there were two. I remember the old wing of the Galleria that housed McDonalds across from the movie theater. Anyone have any information on a store list from back in the day, or possibly photos of this era. I've seen the few that exist towards the bottom of this page ... http://mallsofamerica.blogspot.com/search?q=houston+galleria ... but someone out there must have better ones, or at least some memories of the 1980s in that mall. Thanks!

  15. There is a rumor about a new project in uptown, thought I heard some rumblings but thought I would test the waters here to see if I am just hearing things.
  16. Looks like this class-b office building will be getting a new garage. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/1535-West-Loop-S-Houston-TX/3941231/
  17. Just a passing observation about the property across the street. 3535 Sage Road has a big for sale sign advertising 8.2 acre tract of land for sale. That’s pretty big chunk of land for this area. Also just south of 3525 Sage condos. Right now there is an abandoned two story commercial bldg along with a really big ugly parking lot. Looks like plenty of development opportunities around here… keeping my fingers crossed. Need lots more lovin in this part of town!
  18. A Hard Rock Hotel & Residences is proposed for the southern end of Uptown, Sage Road & South Rice Avenue (3500 Sage Rd.) SubdivisionPlatPDF_Hard Rock Hotels And Condominiums-Sheet 1 - PP.pdf

  20. Noticed some permitting activity lately. Called someone related to the project and they confirmed the London Square Townhomes will be demolished. The owner/developer is Endeavor Real Estate Group out of Austin. They're website does not have any Houston properties listed. Hopefully they enter the market with a splash! https://www.endeavor-re.com/ DMRE's old property flier. I've noticed DMRE's properties usually have a high chance of fast redevelopment. Waste water and sewer disconnect permits. Demolition should come next!
  21. There's speculation brewing that CBS 11 KHOU-TV Houston might be looking for a new home. The TEGNA station had to evacuate their building during Hurricane Harvey, the station's Facebook page previously mentioned that a restoration company was working the flooded studio. However, CBS 11 KHOU-TV meteorologist Brooks Garner was asked by someone on his Facebook page on the latest developments regarding the restoration of Allen Parkway studios. Garner replied the station was looking for a new spot to call home. Even Mike McGuff of mikemcuff.com, asked the station about the possible new location search: he was then told by one of the station's representatives they will "keep in touch" when there's something to announce... which is code for MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. For now, just stay tuned on whether CBS 11 gets a new studio to call home. http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2017/10/is-khou-11-rebuilding-or-moving.html
