BLVD Place / Hanover Towers / Apache HQ News & Pictures

Recommended Posts

I'm not grasping where the new Hanover is going. If it's going to the south of the current one, as the renderings on the last page show, why is there now "future office" listed on that site?

Well, consider that the article that reported that Hanover's new building will be south of the current one also reported that it would north of Blvd Place.

The link has been taken down. Guys please when you share pdf links, either reup it using your files or archive it on Internet Archive. I'm saying this because the link is no longer available. It's probably annoying as hell when I post archive links and upload pages from pdf files that other people post links to but this is why I do it. Did anybody download it or extract images from this?

Its still working for me

just an update on the Post Oak Blvd expansion with timeline:

Upcoming Timeline At-A-Glance

  • June 9, 2016 -- Contract to be awarded for the north segment, West Loop to San Felipe
  • June 12, 2016 -- Anticipated Houston Chronicle article by Molly Glentzer regarding the Boulevard Project and the Tree Preservation, Relocation and Enhancement Plan
  • June 13, 2016 -- Three Live Oak trees moved from the median and construction area to Post Oak Park (corner of Post Oak Boulevard and West Loop frontage) to mark the beginning of the Tree Preservation, Relocation and Enhancement Plan. Photo op with media (10:30 a.m.)
  • June 2016 -- Throughout the month of June and July, trees in the medians of Post Oak Boulevard from the West Loop to San Felipe will continue to be relocated in preparation of construction
  • July / August 2016 -- Medians continue to be cleared and asphalted for temporary roadways. Temporary signals are installed on Post Oak Boulevard at 610, Uptown Park Boulevard, and Four Oaks. Ring is removed from the intersection of Post Oak Boulevard and Uptown Park Boulevard early August to allow for temporary signal.
  • September 2016 -- Traffic will be moved to temporary roadway allowing the start of storm sewer work. Work in the intersection of San Felipe currently deferred until after the new year.

The exciting thing about this is the fact that when Hanover presents a rendering thats what your going to get. Every one of their projects and renderings have been spot on exact. I really like how they run their office. I sure hope they eventually build the River Oaks Kirby project because thats an outstanding design and would look great across from the Ziegler Cooper building.

Interesting.

 

To me, the base is attractive.

 

The glass and white marble are far more attractive than a paneled parking garage podium.

Anyone mind passing by the site for confirmation?

Sure, I may be able to stop by this week.  I bank at the Schlumberger bldg on San Felipe.  Need a check to deposit first though :P

I didn't know where the project was located.  I drove down S. Post Oak Lane until I saw vacant land.  In between the two BLVD Place centers there is vacant land.  The vacant land looks to be separated? One piece of land belongs to BLVD Place and the other is the Hanover site? I don't know.

Gene, I think you are correct. West of South Post Oak Lane.  I drove by there yesterday afternoon.  The site is all fenced off with a plywood construction fence.  There was some activity on the site, but not a whole lot (and I really couldn't quite determine what was going on as I was driving by and only had a short opportunity to look in.)

 

Interestingly, the site to the north of Hanover Post Oak also had some activity, including surveying flags...

2016 09 01: Nothing happening yet.  (Photo by me)

 

Even after (many) months (a year?  two years?), I still don't really understand the new HAIF layout.  Anyone know why I'm limited to photos of a size 60kB or less for the direct-attach method?

I'd like to second that. I wish we had a photo download for dummies manual.

Off-topic, but:

 

1. Go to http://imgur.com

2. Drag and drop your image file onto the middle of the screen there and it will upload automatically.  If your browser doesn't support this, click the New Post button at the top and then click the Browse button and find your image.

3. Right-click on the displayed image and choose "Copy Image Location" (in Firefox) or "Copy image address" (in Chrome) to copy the image URL (it will be something like http://i.imgur.com/XXXXXXXX.jpg).  The menu item may be labeled slightly differently in other browsers.

4. Paste the URL into a post here.  It will automatically be embedded in your post after a couple seconds.

I still don't know where this is.  Is the project actually located on S. Post Oak Lane? Thought it was near the 1700 block?

 

Anybody know what landmark bldgs are near the site? I went down S. Post Oak Lane where the Four Leaf Towers are, heading towards Woodway and I couldn't find it.

it is located directly behind Whole Foods and to the south of Hanover Tower (1750 Skylark Lane) which IS directly behind Whole Foods (and that is St Michael Catholic School/Church located on Sage in the photo behind the lot fyi)

With the find Apache announced last week out near Balmorhea in the Permian they really should be able to build that building 

that we saw renderings for earlier in this thread. They're going to have  more money than anyone. What was it 15 billion barrels? Maybe it was million but it was one of the largest in the continental U.S. in quite a while,

Yeah but if they can't produce and sell for a profit it's not going to happen for awhile.

The giant mosaic couch is covered and they're doing some digging/utility work on the San Felipe sidewalk. Also a small fence.

It's all utility work on San Felipe.  I think it's being done in advance of moving the Post Oak work further south toward San Felipe (at which point everything ties together).

FYI- this job is moving forward now.  Check the site tomorrow.....

 

I don't know if there's anything happening on site, but a 30 page Condominium Decleration was filed last Friday.

 

I assume everyone knows the floor count is 32 floors?

Whoever buys the 32nd floor penthouse gets their own rooftop pool, I think? Damn.

 

Edit; It refers to it as a Mechanical Penthouse, so maybe the 32nd floor is open to residences then.

 

Edit 2; Floors 1-3 listed as Office but I assume can also be Retail?

It seems construction has started, they're currently digging and there is a large mobile crane on site

Emporis typically uses an average floor height of 13.3' when estimating building height. Not really sure where the 37 floor count came from for the residential building...

Emporis estimates some tower here at 492 ft.

I honestly have no idea what tower this height belongs to, I haven't really been following this whole project.

 

It's for this building - the first residential tower that was proposed for the site, just east of Hanover Post Oak at Post Oak Lane and San Felipe.

http://www.chron.com/business/real-estate/article/37-story-building-with-236-apartments-to-soar-in-1752784.php

 

It has been part of the project plans since at least 2008. Even when the Ritz proposal fizzled, it remained. For the longest time, site plans also indicated it as "37-Story Residential Tower", but more recent ones say simply "Future Residential Tower" As of now, the building with that footprint is still on the proposal map
