How in the world did GID let Hanover outhustle them on this project?

GID did all of the leg work back in 2005/6 that this area CAN support a high quality, high design, matered plan mixed use district?

Then the put that vision on hold...scraped it, replaced it with a LOW quality project and then Hanover stole their playback and is reaping the REWARDS while all of the retail spaces in RS sit vacant.

RD  IS a valued engineered project, anyone with any architectural/real estate development can see that.

How did they let this happen?


If GID continues to mail it in with this project then YES please sell it to a developer that knows what they are doing. It's handed to you on a silver platter

I noticed that GID is doing some roof work on the Allen House units off of Rochow. They have no interest in building the new tower anytime soon...

Dallas' Front Burner Society (formerly Front Burner Dining Group) is bringing one its concepts to Regent Square. 

Mexican Sugar will roll out its first Houston location later in the year (possibly). The menu centers on Mexican fare.

Other Front Burner Society restaurants in the Houston area: Whiskey Cake and Sixty Vines.

If Autry Park could land a large lead tenant or build-to-suit tenant that would really stabilize and accelerate this area even more.  The restaurant/retail and MF demand is palpable, and should really become highly attractive for companies and their employees that want this parkside, walkable, dense dining environment. 

The issue of course is new construction will likely require the highest rents in Houston to pencil and may have to be all or nearly all equity on Hanover's side.. but there has to be a few companies or firms that are in or soon to be in the market that may be up to it..

Can Georgia James and Pastore set up a gofundme to help with those patios?  The lack of plants/shade makes them look so sad every time I drive by.

It's as if Regent Square wanted to be a high quality development but chose to turn itself into a valued engineering strip center type of development. There are plenty examples of successful restaurant design within blocks from RS...

Go look how La Griglia integrates it's patio space with the street and then look and Georgia James and Pastore and the head-scratcher is that these were designed as Restaurant tenants!
