Generation Park office/medical/etc... in Northeast Harris County

Recommended Posts

I guess they could have simply built parking lots - since they have quite a bit of land?

I think the Houston Campi we see sprouting up around the ring of the city serve one main purpose....

 

Better Defensive Perimeters for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse.

This is the only plausible explanation I can think of.

But seriously guys, GP has a lot of potential and hopefully we'll see some stuff on the new college moving in. They haven't announced anything but if you search for the right thing on Google, you'll find some juicy info.

This is the only plausible explination I can think of and I've been procrastinating for a while.

 

Seriously though, GP has a lot of great potential and I'm excited to see what comes next. Maybe we'll see some new info on the university moving in; they haven't announced anything but if you search for the right thing on Google you'll find some juicy details.

It's not hard and I don't want to give anything away that could tie me back. Just think of the community colleges in Houston and search google...

So I started working in Kingwood In August so I pass by Generation Park daily and it seems like the FMC building with the two cranes has managed to be stuck at 2 1/2 floors since I started. Anyone know why there hasn't been any more vertical movement on the building?

I'm not sure why construction has halted. If you took some pics I could definitely give you an answer.

Let's just say McCord is pretty new to this development thing...

 

FMC bought the land from McCord.  I doubt McCord is involved in the construction.

Here is the pic from Friday. Same as I have seen for last couple of months, at least on the main structure. I do know the cranes are moving as they are in different positions from morning time until I get off work.

It won't be possible to tell without a close-up. Just the fact that the cranes are moving means something's going on. Either they've got a spot of bad concrete and have to redo some work, or some of their materials are late in arriving.

My god that's massive! I thought they were working on 2 buildings at best.

I believe the first phase is 6 buildings total.

I think they are only building the two, but they're large floor plates. The additional buildings are going to be more warehouse/industrial, as far as I know.

an update of the master plan. Apparently they just signed a lease with an office tenant for a building in the northeast corner of S.Pa North (the next phase).

Edit: I wonder if the McCord rep was talking about the two buildings labeled Stolt-Neilsen Limited. Has the announcement for them signing on been made yet?

I like the soccer and softball field. I hope it's at least semi-open to the public and not just for a single corporate company.

They are in the process of moving their Connecticut offices here. Their (our), current building is going under renovations to accommodate their operations department. I'm not sure about the rest of their departments.

Edit: it would be bitter sweet to move there. It's a longer commute but a much more desirable area than Channelview. Plus the current building is dated and has irrigation issues.

San Jacinto College said Wednesday that it will  build a new campus  on 57 acres in Generation Park, the 4,000-acre planned development in the far northeast Houston area.

The new campus will be located across Lockwood Road from the 173-acre FMC Technologies corporate headquarters currently under construction at Generation Park. The developer  McCord Development donated 3.8 acres at the intersection of West Lake Houston Parkway and Lockwood Road to the college.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be part of what’s going on at Generation Park, San Jacinto College and even more broadly, in northeast Houston,” said Brenda Hellyer, the college system’s chancellor.

Ryan McCord, president of McCord Development, said San Jacinto College “recognized the value” of the location and “the benefits of being part of a truly master-planned enterprise park.”

“We can offer them something nobody else can: direct relationships with world-leading companies who want to work together to developer Houston’s next generation high-tech workforce — particularly subsea and downstream energy,” McCord said.

The northeast Houston area accounts for 42 percent of the U.S. base of petrochemical manufacturing, with 400-plus chemical plants employing 33,000 workers. Billions of dollars in projects are on the books.

FMC Technologies, which makes subsea equipment for the oil and gas industry, broke ground last year on its project at Generation Park, which will consolidate 10 Houston locations to the new business park. The first employees are to move there in early 2016.

Hellyer said San Jacinto College is in the planning stages of the campus.

"Lots of firsts for Generation Park: its first anchor tenant is also its first Fortune 500 corporate campus: FMC Technologies acquired 173 acres, which is nearly the same size as the new ExxonMobil campus. McCord Development’s John Flournoy (nice catch, John!) tells us that the subsea technology giant for the oil and gas industry will be consolidating all of its Houston-based operations at Generation Park, including its global HQ, and is nearing completion of its first phase on 70 acres. Early next year, approximately 2,000 FMC employees will be moving to Generation Park in over 1M SF of office and workshop space as part of the first phase. Also new is the S.PA, Generation Park’s first corporate lifestyle center. The 52 acres is scheduled to break ground later this year and will be home to corporate office users and a mix of amenities like restaurants, hotels, conference centers, healthcare centers and child development centers. Stolt-Nielson, a leading European logistics company, recently acquired acreage in the S.PA and by winter, two hotels will be under construction. Yet another first: a 57-acre San Jacinto College campus will focus on serving the community and partnering with companies located in Generation Park to help train their current and future workforce."

Lone Star College will build a Process Technology Center on 8.3 acres of land in the 4,000-acre Generation Park.

 

The center will prepare students for technical careers in the energy industry at places like FMC Technologies, which is currently building its new campus in the park, said John Flournoy, director of sales and leasing at Generation Park.

They were pushing S.Pa really hard for awhile. I never got an explanation for that.

Edit; but is "Redemption Square" any better? I mean, damn that's kinda melancholic.

McCord Development plans to build a new hotel, apartment complex and an office/retail building in Generation Park, a massive business park northeast of Houston.

 

The Houston developer is planning the first phase of Redemption Square, an urban mixed-use district within the 4,000-acre Generation Park, located off Beltway 8 in the West Lake Houston region.

 

McCord Development is under contract for a Courtyard Marriott hotel with 147 rooms and an urban apartment project with 243 units, the developer of which is yet to be announced.

 

In addition, the developer has begun preleasing for a five-story spec building with 85,000 square feet of Class A office space and 15,000 square feet of ground-level retail space. A 1,000-space parking garage is also planned.

 

Eventually, Redemption Square — formerly called S.PA — will feature 1.5 million square feet of Class A office space, 800 residential units, 650 hotel rooms, 275,000 square feet of retail space and 21 acres of parks.

 

Future phases of Redemption Square will also include an extended-stay hotel, fitness centers and a 4,000-seat auditorium.

 

The 52-acre urban district will be located just west of Houston-based FMC Technologies’ new 173-acre corporate campus, where 2,000 new employees are expected to start relocating around March. San Jacinto College also is expected to open a new campus on 57 acres in Generation Park.

MDI is currently in the process of selling land and partnering with other parties for the development of the initial phase of the 52‐acre mixed use urban center which has been renamed “Redemption Square” within the District. Redemption Square is a planned urban center to be developed specifically for corporate users, hotels, multifamily apartments and a mix of restaurants and lifestyle amenities. Stolt’s (hereinafter defined under “THE OTHER DEVELOPERS”) 6‐acre land purchase represents the first land sale in Redemption Square. MDI has announced an initial phase of Redemption Square which includes:

 

Courtyard by Marriott Hotel

 

Schematic design has been completed for an urban‐style 144‐key Marriott Courtyard that will serve FMC and area’s lodging needs. The hotel is scheduled to break‐ground in mid‐2016 with completion expected in mid‐2017. The developer is a privately held national real estate development, construction and management company with experience developing more than 20 hotel assets with leading brands including InterContinental Hotels Group, Hilton and Marriott.

 

Urban Adaptive Mixed‐Use Office Building

 

Adjacent to the Courtyard by Marriott hotel, MDI is planning to start construction on a 5‐story, 85,000 square‐foot class‐A multi‐tenant office building in mid‐2016. MDI’s corporate headquarters will locate there upon completion. Five different companies have expressed interest with space requirements totaling over 100,000 square feet. On the ground floor, up to four restaurant spaces are planned to be leased by Transwestern. The general contractor, architect and engineers have been selected and the target completion date is March 2017. Concurrently, construction documents are also underway for an approximate 711‐car parking garage that will serve the office building, the Courtyard by Marriott hotel and the media company building. The parking garage is expected to break ground in mid‐2016 with an early 2017 completion.

 

240 Unit Luxury Rental Apartments

 

Together with a national owner and developer of residential apartments, MDI is under design on an approximately 240‐unit multifamily property in Redemption Square, located near the mixed‐use office building and Courtyard by Marriott hotel. The 4‐story and garage‐parked project is being designed by Humphrey’s & Partners Architects and construction is expected to commence mid‐2016 with a completion in 2017.

 

Transwestern High‐Rise Class A Office Building

 

Together with Transwestern, MDI has designed and is offering for lease a 300,100 square foot, 14‐ story class A office building located at one of the corners of Redemption Square. Conceptual Design has been completed by architectural firm HOK, and a marketing package has been finalized. MDI & Transwestern are actively seeking an anchor tenant and have submitted proposals on a number of opportunities.

 

Redemption Square Linear Park

 

Architectural firm TBG has been contracted to complete schematic design and produce construction documents for Redemption Square’s Linear Park and plaza, which will be designed to include a signature water feature, an array of amenities and multiple event spaces. The park will be the central gathering place for Redemption Square and is scheduled break ground in 2016 for a 2017 completion.

 

Local Media Company Headquarters

 

In November 2015, a local media company’s executive board unanimously approved a $150,000 budget for the funding of the implementation of their pre‐development package for its new headquarters at Redemption Square. The pre‐development scope includes schematic design package and selection of a fee developer, general contractor, architect and civil engineer. Their Redemption Square building program is for 5 stories and approximately 120,000 square feet

In May of 2015, San Jacinto Community College District (hereinafter defined under “THE OTHER DEVELOPERS”) acquired 56.9‐acre parcel at the southwest corner of Lockwood Road and the future extension of W. Lake Houston Parkway for a future campus within Generation Park. San Jacinto College, one of the largest community colleges in Texas, is anticipated to start phase 1 construction on an ultimately 8,000 student campus in 2016. Phase 1 occupancy is anticipated in 2017.

 

In July 2015, Lone Star College System (hereinafter defined under “THE OTHER DEVELOPERS”), acquired an 8.29‐acre parcel along Lockwood Road at the northern portion of the District.
