GreenStreet Redevelopment + 21-Story Hotel Alessandra

Recommended Posts

LOL Kevin..

Is "Midway" or "Valencia Group" responsible for the hotel decisions?

 

or maybe the Trilateral Commission...  :ph34r:

Walked through GreenStreet this past weekend and there were people all over the place.  I had no idea there was a new Salata next to the recently opened Cafe Bene.  Both of those will get a lot of foot traffic on weekdays from the law school, 1301 fannin, etc.

They even have some cladding up on the GS interior side.

I can't post pics because I can't make them small enough in my phone to be acceptable to the new forum software

^^^ would love to see that exterior cladding tumbleweed_tx... if you can make it work.  they are going to have to rush construction if they fully intend for this structure to be open and accommodating in time for the forthcoming SUPERBOWL....

Has anyone here ever patronized that Starbucks?  The sign is so small and dim I can't imagine the place attracting many impulse buyers.

its always fairly busy as its located within a hotel and just off main street so it gets a fair amount of traffic...also when my best friend headlined a show at house of blues a couple of months ago, we walked over there after soundcheck and there was a line about 10 people long...so it's doing pretty well apparently!

This is still a good spot for potential retail, like a sephora or even a MAC or some smaller retail.

I didnt realize but NRG does take up the first floor as well. It takes up way to much space in Greenstreet for it to ever be a retail hub, It has to be leasing out atleast a third of available space. Also for gods akes I hope they put some sort of advertisement or billboard next to the hotel in that ugly empty wall

It's so strange to have NRG occupy prime retail space - I would guess that it doesn't match their needs very well, and they only got it because Houston Pavilions was desperate at the time.  They need to figure out a way to attract a few big anchors; bring the big guys in and little stores will pop up too to take advantage of the traffic.

it looks like the hotel wont even come off as nice as the renderings. I wonder how long that NRG lease is for? As long as NRG is there, its not going to be a retail hub. It takes up way to much prime space

If we had not had such a wonderful first render of this hotel it would be seen in such a different light. I think it looks good imo.

The first floor of the Polk side pictured above is also the first floor of the office building.

The pool went from the top floor of the hotel and enclosed in glass to the 5th level facing the shopping center.

There's a laydown yard for this is right on the purple line on McKinney, so I get to see all the facade pieces come in before they're installed whenever I head to UH.
