Mixed-Use Development at 7200 Main

Recommended Posts

Not much of an update, but apparently the school has delayed it's move due to construction delays on their new campus - planned move is May 2019

 

There are a handful of new survey markers that cut across the property at the end of Glen Haven but who knows what that could mean.  I was hoping we'd get a glimpse of something with the N. Braeswood abandonment process but can't find anything on that, either

 

New nearby developments include new HCC building, Latitude & Intercontinental, new Allen Harrison South Main building (just to the south), and A&M buying 1020 Holcombe for it's EnMed program.  Plenty of activity nearby, so hopefully something eventually happens here

Any updates to this one?

Some sort of permit issued here regarding filling and grading - have to wonder if it’s related to new floodplain regulations effective Sept 1 as I know net fill rules become more restrictive

The Saint Nicholas School temporarily relocated to 3507 Linkwood, Houston, as of June 3, according to a statement from the school. Its property at 1920 N. Braeswood Blvd., Houston, was acquired by 7200 Main Corp. in 2015, along with adjacent parcels. The pre-kindergarten through eighth grade private school is slated to move into a new campus in 2021.

The fill & grade permit was approved on 7/3/19, and the water/waste water application was submitted on 7/17/2019.  Not thrilling but at least some activity...  For such permits to be issued/approved, would they require an actual plan for development?  I've wondered what impacts the post-Harvey flood regulations may have on this property, and noticed that the fill&grade permit was submitted just before they took effect.  The thread on the Holcombe & Main Property got me curious on this one again

Hospitals employ lots of doctors. Those doctors usually have offices close to their working hospital or who they're affiliated with and hence doctors, clinics or specialty practices have their facilities in them. Hospitals usually have their administrative offices in the towers also, so it wouldn't be odd for the need for  more office space in a booming med center especially with the growth in research and related fields.

I wonder whats being seen in the market that these types of projects, ones that have been kind of sitting around for a while, are beginning to move forward in Houston? And then you have stuff like the Skanska purchase. Maybe Houston has gotten further enough away from being absolutely, totally oil-industry dependent that fears of a recession's effects have lessened? Some of my commercial real estate bros said the current building rate is what they remember from 06-07, and I was like, errr not great comparison given some people's current fears, lol.

 

Regardless, this looks crazy. But its also a testament to TMC's vision. Isn't this exactly the type of stuff they said they wanted to have built on that Looped In podcast? If they build everything but that huge tower, its still a massive W compared to what was there.

Well I hope you all who carry on about "extending the skyline"  ( like me) are happy. With this and all the planned construction in Midtown it's going to look amazing.

Ellen, you are right to be cautious. Nothing has been defined and I believe that is just a rendering for a proposal. I don't think anything has been announced yet and  I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic. It would be a great location for such a development, and it certainly wouldd extend the Med Center's southern skyline, however it wouldn't fill in the gap between midtown and the Med center.

But if Texas A& M goes ahead with their campus at Fannin/Main and Holcombe, and the TMC3 goes into construction, and this project gets built it will be a huge metamorphosis for the southern end of the med center campus, and definitely a game changer. Then they could start devouring the Grocers Supply east side property of 55 acres on the 288 Holcombe side.

This might have been the original site for George Dentler's Pier 21, 60's restaurant and club somewhere amongst those palm trees if memory serves.

His father made a very popular potato chip back in the day. Dentler Maid.

Does anyone remember this?

Pier 21 was located at 7001 Fannin.

Wasn’t there a movie theater on the property, or was it where the Shriner’s facility sits now?

 

You're probably thinking of the Shamrock 4  (later 6) multiplex, which was located at 6900 Main. 

 

Shamrock 4 Cinemas

I went to movies there in the late 70's, until my girlfriend got her purse snatched one night. The parking lot was pretty dark, and it was easy for miscreants to hide.

So, it was on the west side of Main, across Holcombe from the Shamrock Hotel?  I could have sworn it was across S. Main from the hotel.

I thought so. The reason for my confusion is that Google Maps indicates 6900 Main is where the Wyndham Hotel is located.

Address for the Shamrock theaters was 7017 South Main, according to Cinema Houston: From Nickelodeon to Megaplex, excerpt here https://books.google.com/books?id=R6XDCyvuGSkC&pg=PA255&lpg=PA255&dq=shamrock+6+theaters+houston&source=bl&ots=JB4yPVFkU1&sig=ACfU3U0o88mSpgeciQCbiKLSygrgl4I85w&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiGsqTgmrvlAhVlmK0KHd_fD4UQ6AEwCXoECAgQAQ#v=onepage&q=shamrock 6 theaters houston&f=false

Yeah, it's clearly the wrong address and I failed to catch it before posting. The article on the Cinema Treasures page announcing the theater's opening even states that it's across the street from the Shamrock Hotel.

That's a big boy excavator right there , time to to start diggin! On other thoughts, wonder what the timeline is? This developer is extremely secretive from the looks of it, but maybe there's a chance they're going to reveal some information soon. Honestly excited this project is even starting.

It was quiet for a few weeks but today I noticed they were in the process of tearing out that segment of N Braeswood Blvd...  Also noticed some stakes so it appears things are still moving along
