Unfortunately, this is no joke.😫 Here’s the monster, currently on the planning commission agenda:   

NIMBYs in the heights- “Build storage facilities along a highway where they belong!!”    Owners of highway adjacent property in Montrose 

It’s going to be a...ughhh..6-story storage facility. 😵

EDIT: I checked the website and spring 2016 was the original completion date, so this is probably just rehanging the old banner, not a groundbreaking date.

I could have been distracted by the smell of my Kam's take-out on prior occasions, but I don't think I saw this banner with "Spring 2016" before tonight:

Any updates on future development of this vacant lot?  The owner of the lot also owns the adjacent lot at 905 Woodrow St, for a combined lot size of 35,547 sq ft.

 

I heard a rumor that it might be a boutique hotel, but not sure if there's any truth to that...

 

It looks like neither of these projects ever took off at the same location, so who knows.

Here’s the marketing material from Cushman & Wakefield for this lot. Given that the two rumored mid-rise office projects never took off on this lot over the past decade, coupled with the new Broadstone Museum District condos going up right across the bridge, I’m will to bet this gets developed into a similar luxury condo mid-rise/high rise.

 

It’ll be very well positioned to the new Ion tech center as well, 

 

Thoughts?

A Loopnet listing for 4503 Montrose Blvd in Houston was created April 2019. The listing was updated this month.


Cushman & Wakefield listed the property for sale.

What did they update this month as compared to April? Looks the same to me.

I don't know. I wrote the above so others on the board would know the listing was created in April and updated this month. No one posted a link to the sale listing, only that it was on the market again.

I like to include those kind of details to provide more background, info, or anything else  posters may find to be useful. It is also useful, I find, when looking back through past posts to get a better timeline of happenings with a property or development.

 

Makes sense. I wonder if this lot is truly large enough for a mid rise? Clear Channel seems to own the lot just east of this one on Woodrow (currently a billboard there). I suppose if you combine the two, it would be large enough for something.

What do you think will end up developing on this lot if anything? Midrise? Townhomes? Mattress Firm? ER?

Horrible location for anything retail/restaurant related, I would guess offices first, maybe apartments second. I personally wouldn't want to listen to all that traffic while trying to sleep.

The cynic in me says in five years they'd just throw the same crap up on the site but five years on. Might as well get it over with; I'm not getting any younger.

And here we are more than five years later, and I'm guessing still waiting, only with a little COVID on top....

What exactly do you think this means? Just spotted the sign today.

That setback is a killer and impacts no one. Hopefully, neighborhood doesn’t fight it.

Being near the highway might mean its noisy there, but the view would kick butt even from lower floors because you have that road trench and then the open space to see above the tree line. Even on the second floor you'd be able to see the Med Center skyline.

So does there request basically mean they want to build closer to the highway than is allowed?

Correct - I believe current setbacks require them to build 25' from the property line along 59.

Gotcha. The lot is still listed for sale on the MLS for $5.3m, so it sounds like the current owner is looking to get the variance request in order to make the lot more attractive to developers.

In all likelihood, a developer has this under contract and the purchase is probably subject to getting the variance (probably some additional conditions as well)

I own in this pocket, so it’ll be exciting to see if it’ll be commercial residential or commercial office. Would love to see it be something that’ll benefit the neighborhood.

I prefer the project to be canned and to wait a few more years with the possibility of having something with a more interesting design and better interaction with the neighborhood to go up. 

Crossing my fingers that you’re right! 6 years later...

Uh oh. And they’re asking for a variance? Montrose folks won’t be very happy - might fight this one a bit.

If this is like Wonder Woman 1984, I think I speak for all of us that HAIF renounces its wish regarding shelving Broadview Crossing.
