Lower Heights District

Recommended Posts

Many of the "proposed" retailers are located in other centers owned by this developer, so they have likely expressed very strong interest, if not committed to the project already.

Hopefully the city (?) is still considering the Summer St. connection.

LOWER HEIGHTS

 

Sam’s Club

Capital One

Cinemark

McDonald’s

Academy

Nordstrom Rack

Ross

Ulta

Michael’s



From the last proposed list of retailers for Lower Heights District from last year, it's come down to:

Ulta
Michael's
Sam's Club
Nordstrom Rack
Ross Dress for Less
Academy

Would have loved to see the previously proposed Total Wine & More in that mix.


And would like to see what's proposed for Studemont Junction.

Kind of surprised we have not seen any activity on this property, especially with the big boom in retail going on in the Heights area right now.

Now a mixed-use development.

Lower Heights District, a mixed-use development that's in the pre-development stages, is being planned for a site on the east side of Studemont Street and south side of Interstate 10 next to the Kroger at 1440 Studemont St., sources close to the deal told the Houston Business Journal.

 

The project will be a mixed-use development with office, retail, residential and entertainment components. The site was recently appraised at $36.7 million, according to the Harris County Appraisal District. 

 

Lower Heights District was originally pegged to be a two-level big box retail development. Additional information, including a groundbreaking timeline and information on subcontractors, wasn't made available.

 

Financing on both projects is still being secured.[/quote]

Let's just pray they make it PEDESTRIAN! I just came back from dallass and let me tell you that they are doing a solid job building for PEDESTRIANS! It felt like a different city from just 10 years ago when I lived there.

Not around Park Lane and Greenville Ave. Its a death trap for pedestrians just like the 99% of DFW that is not located in that 1 square mile known as uptown.

I'm simply speaking about how they are slowly building very cohesive development one after the other that's really starting to connect their neighborhoods. I also noticed fewer parking lots in many areas.

I live in Dallas. Where are you talking about? Because for every one example you may have of a "connected" neighborhood, I can give you a dozen examples of one's that are not.

Alexan will plant a multifamily complex here (Alexan Lower Heights), somewhere between 150-250 units. Construction begins by the end of the year.

As part of a larger mixed use project I presume?

Hasn’t construction already started and the crane is up?

There are two projects on both sides of Studemont that I think confuse people. There's Lower Heights District and then there's Studemont Junction. The later currently has construction projects occurring

So is this thread the "Lower Heights District' which is where we were getting stacked big box stores, and the plans have changed? (LHD is east of Studemont and S of i10)

 

- OR - 

 

Is this thread for Studemont Junction? (West of Studemont) where we have already one apartment U/C...

 

I need the clarification because the information shared on this page is quite confusion... I believe there are separate threads for each. Thanks for helping! I might just be slow...

This thread is for the Lower Heights District project but people keep adding Studemont Junction material here. I've renamed the thread now.

Thanks Triton.

 

I wonder what the plan is for the site, overall. We heard awhile back the plans had changed to something more truly mixed use. Hoping for the best!

While this is certainly the lower Heights geographically and topographically I get a real kick out of the paradox of the phrase "Lower Heights." Hopefully there will be a seafood market that sells fresh jumbo shrimp. :D

I just hope they tie it in well for pedestrians, especially considering the development around it. Even the newest developments do a poor job, like the Sawyer Heights/Yale shopping areas. I mean they're walkable, but not what they could be.

I know the guy who bought this land. Hilarious to see the chronicle's dollar amount, it's way off. Secondly it won't be a suburban style development so calm down.

From my apartment's parking garage I saw an excavator on this property.  

Clearing/excavating a drainage channel it appears.

Site says 15,000 sf of retail and 375 units on 5 acres. 

 

5 acres is almost a quarter of the total area, so the site layout must have changed significantly.

Wonder if stacked retail is still in play or if they are going to go the more traditional mixed use route. 

 

I've got a retail/non-residential wishlist for this area and the large blocks of land are drying up fast.

New dirt is nice, but I'd like to see site plans and renderings :) I at least need to know if i should keep following this or just throw in the towel.

If that is how high they need to go to meet the new "two feet above 500 year floodplain" requirement, that will seriously slow the development of this area.

There are renderings being circulated out there now. Rumor is a movie theater is still in play, but more likely Studio Movie Grill now. :ph34r:

Per the Harris County flood mapping tool. They aren't even near the 500 year floodplain. I honestly have no clue whats going on. I thought at first maybe they are doing what what the original Greenway Plaza did which was build up a mound over at grade parking to conceal it. That doesn't seem to be the case.

They're building Houston's first mountain

 

Nah...everyone knows Mount Houston was the first.

 

https://blog.chron.com/bayoucityhistory/2010/04/the-story-of-mt-houston/

 

It was leveled by developers but the community built there remains.

You can go visit it.  It's off 59 a couple of miles south of the beltway.

I heard mixed use - apartments / theater / some stores... seems like a step in the right direction but not a full on Midway mixed use center. Is that what you're hearing as well?

 

I think their proposal will work well here. I think this area will boom and we will see many more cool projects in the not too distant future.

This is a completely different development but think of the development like this... "boxes with stores and streets and buildings"... Not a full on City Centre but not far away from it.
