Eh, the hate on Regent Square is overdone. In reality, Regent Square and Autry Park *together* are completely transforming this part of W Dallas.

No, the hate is 100% justified.

They Value Engineered both the layout and quality it worse than the Embassy Suites downtown and in the process left the lots vacant for over a decade.

Meanwhile, Hanover put together a very high quality product in a fraction of the time and were faced with the same exact issues as GID, from a catchment area analysis.

Two solutions for the exact same type of project in the exact same exact location. But with two drastically different strategies: One went high quality and one went cheap and still has only 2 tenants.

The hate is definitely justified.

The only hope is that they use the now vacant "Block A" to significantly improve the quality but their reputation of Block B may hurt. They can benefit by piggy backing off of the Hanover vision.

*rolls eyes*

It's definitely not worse than the Embassy Suites. Is Autry Park better? Of course! Is Regent Square as good as what was originally shown? Not at all! But it's not bad!

I think the Dallas St frontage is generally pretty good - it engages the sidewalk and is overall pretty pleasant. There's a lot of potential for the retail plaza at Dunlavy, especially once that street gets rebuilt and the next phase of Regent Square (hopefully) gets built.

The long term vacancy *is* a problem. But hopefully it's one that's finally going away.

NOT worse...it's a million times worse.

Go back and look a the original layout, design  and the fact that a number of high quality architects worked on the original scheme.

It went from the best inner loop project to what we have now and add in the fact the lots (A + B) vacant for almost 15 years and A is still vacant.

Even with being open, they still haven't leased the spaces and GID started this project in 2007!

They even built a building across the street with a large scale model!

Compare that progress to Hanover.

You are correct, people all over the world regard Houston as a model of high quality development and superior urban and city planning.

WE are definitely on the short list for most charming cities and every city looks to Houston and wonder how they did it...oh wait, none of that is true and the demise of a quality project like Regent Square to a very bland dull project that can't even get tenants, is a perfect example of a reason why!

Am I wrong, Luminare?

Other than the fact that the bike lanes just...end...(are we just supposed to stop existing there?), I actually think RS is still perfectly fine from an urban planning perspective. That's why I'm not at all bothered by the architectural blandness. 

Yes, it's weird that they had so much space dedicated to one bar and nothing else happening at opening, but they need the Hanover and Alta and RS projects to fill up a lot more before more businesses will be able to succeed there. Hopefully the next phase is more interesting, but in the meantime I'll happily take the unit density and lack of street-facing parking.

I get why the developers wouldn't want to highlight competitors, but to me the Alta and RS developments are the real selling points of HAP. They both highlight Hanover's better design and give it a bit of an integrated urban neighborhood vibe, rather than the island-in-suburbia vibe these renderings suggest.

There's a Hanover Montrose looking building behind the tallest building in one rendering, but not in the site map rendering. 

I've noticed that for a long time in the renderings it looks like the Montrose building.

Yeah I noticed that, but I'm pretty sure previous revealed plans and buildout information also showed that they were planning for at least two high rises, in addition to that midrise.

Tout Chocolat, an artisanal chocolate shop from Mexico is coming to Autry Park. I think the Houston store may be the first outpost in the United States.

In addition to chocolate and chocolate candies, Tout Chocolat also offers coffee beverages and desserts.

Other confirmed and unconfirmed retail tenants for Autry Park so far include:
 

• Annabelle's

• Turner's Cut

• Auden

• Lick Honest Ice Creams

• TBA restaurant from the team behind Kokoro and Handies Douzo

• Duo (Duo Coffee & Pilates)





The location of Tout Chocolat's shop at Autry Park and rendering of the building:

Does anyone know if Berg Hospitality has plans to bring their Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show restaurant the Ranch to Autry Park? The Ranch is billed as a steakhouse and saloon. A recent sales tax permit seems to indicate the Ranch will be located either on the ground floor of Hanover Autry Park apartments or another part of the Autry Par development.

I walk through there pretty regularly (to/from BBP) and still don't really see any action on the retail front. Lot's of discussion and announcements but no build out (that I have seen).

Back in either 2020 or 2021, the retail leasing agent for Autry Park released a merchandising plan with concepts and stores. There weren't specific retailers listed, only general descriptions of what may occupy each unit. 

Recently, Autry Park updated the retail section on their website with previously reported retailers. Also listed are confirmations of concepts speculated here a few pages back. When I last checked Autry Park's website in July, the retailers weren't listed.

The tower crane operator who works for TAS just messaged me on IG saying his bosses just told him they are moving him to a Hanover high rise project to build a 42 story high rise here in Houston. He is currently operating the tower crane at the Marquette Companies White Oak apartments. He was told he would transfer over to his new job around Jan-March. He was also the operator at the Allen project on the taller crane and the tower crane operator at the Hanover River Oaks. Only building that qualifies in that height range is the one at Hanover Autry Park.

Nice! I can't wait for that tower to be built it's gonna have one hell of a presence on Allen Parkway and Memorial!

Not over on Post Oak Blvd? That one's 42 stories.

That one is by Deiso Moss and it is proposed for 43 stories.

“We acquire, develop and mange…”. 😮

Like we really need any more mangy buildings.

From the same link:

2120 Post Oak Blvd.

Deiso Moss is developing a 43 story mixed use tower on the coveted Post Oak Blvd in Houston, TX. The tower will consist of 25,000SF of retail, 100,000 square feet of office and 350 multi family apartments.


How many families in each apartment? More than three is considered a downscale elegance.

Is the new building residential?  Apartments or condos?  Where exactly does it sit on the property - on West Dallas or on Allen Parkway?  Is it 42 stories?

Looks like Mixed-Use Apartments/Retail/Office :)

I’m not sure what the orientation is? Maybe there’s been a clear site plan somewhere
