24-Story Condo Tower Planned For The Woodlands


Recommended Posts

From "eh", to "m e h", to "bleh".

It's certainly not the worst design on the waterway, and it does blend in with the late 90's early 2000's theme all the other buildings have.

Edit: looks like they changed it from black (a pinch more modern), to brown.

 

Yeah it looks like they switch from a modernish black panel system to brown brick -.-

The website for the project has received an update:   http://www.trevisowaterway.com/  

http://search.har.com/site/18-waterway-square-2002_SITE81938839.htm                  

Guess I'll post this here too.       http://www.chron.com/neighborhood/woodlands/news/article/Growth-brings-new-housing-options-to-The-Woodlands-6020252.php       As the population and business grow

The article has been revised and now includes this tidbit:

 

 

Doyle said other sites along the Waterway eventually could hold more towers.

"We have multiple sites that we will gradually develop with this type of quality product," he said.

The Woodlands Development Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Dallas-based The Howard Hughes Corp. (NYSE: HHC), held a private “pre-announcement” event last week with about 70 interested buyers.

 

After hearing details about the 23-story, 84-unit condominium tower, about 50 attendees made a reservation to purchase a unit. Presale meetings will start next week, said Peter Doyle, executive vice president of strategic development for Howard Hughes.

I'm curious how much longer, and how many more high rises it'll take for The Woodlands to seriously consider mass transit.

 

isn't park and ride "mass transit"?  there are three or four very successful park and rides and the woodlands is building a transit center right smack in the middle of town center...the last proposed location is a surface lot near the pavilion at six pines and lake robbins....on the pavilion side.

Yes, you're right. I'll just come out and say it; how long until the Woodlands gets a rail line?

Seriously... It's asinine we can't even get park&ride into every major suburb. However, that's good news to hear Woodlands is doing it. Hopefully, Sugar Land and Katy can get on board with something like this with the good connection to the major inner city employment centers. Seriously,the SW freeway connects to Uptown, Greenway Plaza, TMC, and DT, wasted opportunity with a lack of P&R due to jurisdiction and lack of will.

According to Sugar Land's website:  "There are two park and ride facilities in Sugar Land: one at the AMC Theater First Colony and one at the UH – Sugar Land campus. Fort Bend County Public Transit provides one-seat service from each facility to the Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, and Galleria areas.Fort Bend County Transit also provides service to downtown Houston via a transfer to METRO. Fort Bend County Transit’s Greenway Plaza route stops at METRO’s West Bellfort Park and Ride, which is located near West Bellfort at US 59"

 

As arndthwrld82 already mentioned, Katy has park & ride.

 

And FWIW, it's hardly "news" that The Woodlands is doing Park & Ride.  There have been Park & Ride buses running from The Woodlands to Houston for decades.

 

Seriously, which major suburbs do not have park & ride?

When I worked in Greenway Plaza, some of the buisnesses there would subsudize your Trek Express ride if you took it more 16 days a month.

I have a feeling that's what's gonna happen.

 

Either in this thread or another one about The Woodlands, I believe the long term plan is to convert all the current mall parking lots into garages with GFR, making it kinda like an old-world bazaar with city surrounding it. Someone may have the photo/master plan around here...

I highly doubt the mall as we know it will be torn down. Afterall, the mall is "only" 21 years old. If anything, it'll be added on to or expanded towards the waterway but I don't see them leveling the mall for many, many, many years to come. That mall is a cash cow.

That's kinda how I imagined it. Like someone else just said, I doubt they'll tear it down because it draws so many visitors, but the classic American Mall is a dying breed, and it won't be long before the HH company decides to go for something more "mixed-use" focused, IMO.

It will probably resemble First Colony Mall in Sugar Land where the parking lots start becoming parking garages and more retail.

On hold, again. 

http://m.chron.com/neighborhood/woodlands/business/article/The-Woodlands-economy-starts-to-feel-pinch-from-6809797.php#photo-9357486

 

After unit pre-sales in 2015 and a redesign of the residential tower, The Woodlands Development Co. announced its decision to put plans on hold due to the uncertain economic climate.

"The Woodlands Development Co. is confident that Treviso, as planned and designed, is the appropriate iconic residential building for the premiere site it will occupy. The Woodlands Development Co. will restart the sales process once the market shows signs of rebounding," the developers said in a statement.

During preliminary reservations at a private event in May, 46 reservations were reported to have been made. Units started at $650,000, and the Treviso was expected to begin construction in time for a late-2017 opening after half of the units presold.

 

But the property, which is featured on the company's a newly launched site, will remain undeveloped for the time being. The Woodlands Development Co. declined to comment on whether customers who purchased units could opt for a refund. But the company remains optimistic about moving forward when markets rebound.

This condo tower for The Woodlands has been shelved or scrapped (not really sure what mothballed means). I figured that was too good to be true.

 

http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2016/10/11/the-woodlands-looks-to-grow-even-as-it-nears.html

 

"Low oil prices have slowed The Woodlands’ office and multifamily sectors, which have been hurt by job cuts in the upstream oil and gas sector. Earlier this year, The Howard Hughes Corp. mothballed plans for Treviso at Waterway Square, a proposed 23-story, 84-unit luxury condo tower. "

In the next paragraph it states they pulled it off the market for now and will bring it back when the time is right. Doesn't sound scrapped to me just on hold.
