So...the vacant lot/parking lot at 100 Waugh near Dickson St and the Memorial on ramp is being dug up. It’s Day 2 of activity that appears to be storm sewer or utility installation. No pics yet—don’t shoot! This is the lot that was the construction worker parking lot for the mixed use building with HEB.

I believe that is supposed to be a high rise if that's what they are starting. 

 

Yep! Two high-rises in fact, Northbank Buffalo Bayou.

Listing for a site for sale across Buffalo Heights also confirms Northbank Buffalo Bayou:

The brochure also has a never-before-seen site plan for Buffalo Heights:

So happy to see the BH spread is already happening. Hoping whoever scoops up that parcel develops it with cohesion of Northbank/100 Waugh and BH in mind. There is a great oppty here and I'm hoping it isn't wasted.

 

The full BH site plan, while likely an early concept, is exciting.

So four residential towers, a hotel, and three office towers. Pretty ambitious. It kind of turns its back from Washington Avenue in favor of an internal pedestrian environment, which suggests a "drive-to urbanism" paradigm, but I suppose it will likely evolve as it is built out. I suspect if we get rail along Washington Ave. then developments like this will embrace the street more, similar to what's being built along Main in Midtown.

I see some light blue retail on the ground floor of the north-easternmost building. I do like how it all connects to the street grid. New signals better be added as density increases around here or traffic is going to be a monster. I believe street reconstruction begins sometime in the next 6-12 months on all those neighborhood streets connecting to the north.

To the north of what? Any specifics on the streets?

Thanks @skooljunkie I'll have to check out that site. 

 

I've long been curious if there is data on when streets were completely repaved last in Houston. I assume not?

Nextdoor has a post that HEB delivery has been pushed out to 2020.  Anyone else hear this or have a link?

It appears the HEB entrance might be on S. Heights.

I think that is the apartment entrance?

 

People on NextDoor are saying that work at the NorthBank site is just a parking lot per the construction workers.

The ones over at the NorthBank site.  Said something about regrading the lot and building a retaining wall.

Is the newest portion of Archstone Memorial Heights the next to be redeveloped? Subdivision plat filed.

they just did a ton of work on this (new) building... they took off all stucco and redid windows and siding. I doubt we see anything happen here.

Maybe they just want to replat this with the rest of their developments as one combined reserve?

Buffalo Heights District 9 3663 Washington Ave,  Houston) has been busy this week on Facebook and Instagram. They've been posting more updates than they have since news broke of this project.

An updated rendering was upload showing signage for The Roastery, the all day cafe partnered with H-E-B, and the signage for the residential apartments St. Andrie.  Both of these have been known for over a year, but neither of these were in the other renderings of the phase 1.

There were also renderings of a unit at St Andrie uploaded, but they're the same that's in the gallery on St Andrie's website (link of the gallery was shared last year in the above posts)

But there is this update that seem like this is staying on track to open in late 2019 as posted to St. Andrie's website last fall:


Keep your eyes and ears open! We're close to announcing the kickoff for pre-leasing at St. Andrie.

https://www.facebook.com/buffaloheightsdistrict/posts/1309964969166805 

 

Updated the Map with the address, official building name, and added MaRS Studios to "Architect:".

 

So are they going to be naming all of their buildings after saints? That would be fun.

MaRS Studios is an interior design firm. Ziegler Cooper is the architect of record.

 

Always good to give credit where its due if it can be found. I already have ZC as architect and then anyone else thats involved whether interior design, landscaping etc... I'll just "+" then that name. Still considering if thats the best approach, but we'll see.

I would like to think HEB wants this opened before the big money making week before Thanksgiving, it's starting to look like they might make it.

As HEB marches its way towards Downtown, it stops at 100 Waugh. Encompassing a great urban grocer concept, and a key location inside inner loop Houston. I would say this development might foreshadow what an HEB in Downtown is going to look like, well at-least the apartments on top of a grocery store concept. Feel like HEB might be planning something in the core 🤔

Excited the HEB is open, but I'm more anxious to hear about phase II and the larger plan for both the remaining Archstone apartments and the area between HEB and Gordy & Sons.

 

On the Buffalo Heights site they reference "Outdoor enthusiasts, anglers, and explorers will love trekking through the incredible adventure gear and outerwear at ultra-luxe, Gordy & Sons Outfitters"  At this point Gordy & Sons IS a trek from HEB, hoping the goal is to fully redevelop the block(s) between Waugh and Yale.

It’s fantastic, been here three times already.

Went there twice now myself. Wife and I are coming to the conclusion that it's probably even better than the Heights location. Feels like it might have a bigger selection and maybe it's just the layout but it feels larger than the Heights location too. Feels a little bit more like a Whole Foods in there with all the signage and everything inside.

 

My only problem is that it is incredibly cold in there. Like, you can tell everyone is freezing in there and all the employees wear jackets. They need to turn it up just a tad bit in there.

Hows the traffic in and out of there? The HEB in the north heights was a hot mess when it opened, and at times difficult to get in and out of

 

Definitely more traffic but not terrible. There are cops directing and restricting certain turns in the afternoons. I just wonder how long that will continue. Raymond St. at S. Heights is the newest frogger challenge. -_-

i think so yes, but I still love the parking lot and the way the Montrose store fits in with the neighborhood

Hard thing to answer. Personally I think the Washington location is my new favorite because it feels like they really pulled out all the stops to make this one feel special. I still like how the Montrose one fits in with the neighborhood and the large oak trees but these stores are just different.

Spotted a street abandonment sign for "Court St." (south of Washington near Studemont) just now.

The only Court Street I found was north of Washington and ran from Washington to the UP tracks.

this would be wonderful. I can imagine it won’t be easy getting funding for this now.
