Crane going up this weekend according to the FAA filing.  

Well since these models have been revealed, I guess I can probably post the renderings...

Thanks for the photos.  This has been an exciting project to follow.  I'm a tad dismayed the Apache building will eat such a large chunk of the previous design - but that just allows the next developer room to add more dense retail+office across the street.

North Restaurant has a Place at BLVD Place

 

An Italian restaurant called North has leased space in the second phase of BLVD Place, the newest tenant to sign onto the mixed-use development at the corner of Post Oak Boulevard and San Felipe.

 

The restaurant is expected to open next summer, along with a 55,000 square foot Whole Foods, a Pinkberry yogurt shop, True Food Kitchen and other retailers.

 

"We think the North restaurant is a great addition," said Ed Wulfe, chairman and CEO of Wulfe & Co., managing partner of the development. "It's something that's not anywhere else in Houston, a new restaurant concept -- not that Houston isn't booming with them."

 

This will be North's seventh restaurant in the U.S, and the second in Texas - the first being in Austin.

 

The 4,300 square foot space will have a casual feel with community tables and a "pasta station" where diners can see their meals being prepared. The restaurant makes its pasta and pizza dough from scratch daily. Its wine selections will include items from hard-to-find producers and vintages from the central and northern regions of Italy, the company said.

 

The 215,000 second phase, which is about 60% leased, will also have a 55,000-square-foot regional headquarters for Frost Bank.

 

A third phase will be a concept similar to the first two, combining office and retail on multiple levels.

 

Apache Corp. acquired land there for a new Headquarters office complex.

 

Wulfe said there are two more parcels left for development.

What is happening in the far right foreground where it's fenced off and there are a couple of piles of rubble? I know Astoria is on the left but don't know about right side.

 

That is the remnants of the 24 hour fitness.  The site is being prepped for BHP Billiton's new building.  Here is the thread for that one: http://www.houstonarchitecture.com/haif/topic/13199-bhp-billiton-five-oaks-place/

BLVD Place once had plans for a 55 story tower? that would of made a huge impact on the uptown skyline.. bummer the economy crashed. any chance it could still be one of the other towers in plans (obviously the floor plates dont match up, but i doubt ALL the other towers are all going to be rectangles)? they want to have ~1,000 residential units in the development, and Hanover and Landmark tower wouldnt be enough units to meet that target. 



"Boulevard Place, Houston, Texas Fifty-five (55) story 638’-8” tall residential flat plate post tension structure, shear wall/outrigger brace- wall system with a 565 car garage approximately 875,424 GSF"

I think that was supposed to be the Ritz hotel wasn't it? The other residential building I thought was like 37-stories or something.

Great view... skylineview! Blvd. Place looks clean and sleek. The angle from the corner of San Felipe @ Westheimer is amazing. Wonderful project, with room to possibly grow (upwards).

 

Westheimer is'nt in the picture, it's San Felipe @ Post oak

Apache tower mentioned on Bisnow, saying the are being worked on.

Cushman & Wakefield executive vice chairman Tim Relyea (here to the right of Harvey's Joe Cleary) says Uptown's greatest challenge is itsproduct age and supply constraints—it's in danger of being a feeder market to Downtown and West Houston. Companies in the submarket want to stay, but they also want state-of-the-art facilities, which is forcing some to relocate. (Tim reps BG Group and says it would've stayed in the Galleria if there was a cutting-edge building for it to go to.) He believes the market needs to get some new product in the ground tostay relevant. Tim represents two companies who are sticking around through new development, Apache and BHP Billiton.

I can't remember which speaker it was at the Boyar Miller breakfast that said this, but they mentioned Apache might not build here.

Apache may not build in blvd place?? I hope they don't back out, though I suppose I wouldn't be opposed if it was for a taller building downtown.. Heh
