"Greystar, a major national apartment property manager and owner based in Charleston, has signed a 68,000 square-foot lease in the yet-to-be-built office tower, called Town Centre Two, at 730 Town & Country Boulevard. Greystar is relocating its Houston offices by early 2024 from a 41-year-old building about seven miles away at 750 Bering Drive where it's been for more than 15 years."

Does anybody have a recent photo of the CityCentre 7/AC Hotel site?  Last I saw in Sept the site was clear, but no new construction started.

No photo, but nothing has changed. Still empty with no equipment or anything

North Italia is opening a location in CityCentre Two in the old Tasting Room space (SE corner of Town And Country Blvd and Town And Country Way). Saw a variance request for a patio today while driving by. Apparently this was announced back in August but didn't see anything going back in this thread.

Group 1 Automotive, a Fortune 500 automotive retailer with more than 200 dealerships in the U.S. and U.K., signed a long-term, 45,330-square-foot office lease covering two floors at Town Centre Two, a development of Moody Rambin at 730 Town & Country in west Houston. The deal brings total lease signings at the 167,141-square-foot building to more than 137,0000 square feet or 82% leased, according to Moody Rambin. Andrew Iversen, Joshua Brown and Audrey Selber of Newmark represented Group 1 Automotive. Bob Cromwell and Kevin Nolan of Moody Rambin represented the landlord. Moody Rambin owns and manages the 41-acre Town & Country Village, a mixed-use development with retail, restaurants and offices next to CityCentre in the Memorial area. The building, which broke ground last year after a 68,000-square-foot lease by Greystar, is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter. Group 1 will relocate its headquarters from Memorial City in summer 2024, according to Moody Rambin.

Not technically City Centre, but they demolished the shopping center next to the new Town Centre Two tower (previously home to Nori Sushi and the original KP‘s Kitchen location) and the James Coney Island across the street. Signs seem to indicate that it will be replaced with a more modern-looking strip mall.

Yeah I mean I'm not against CityCentre by any means. I just wish first thoughts would be downtown before any other place in the city. 

I do wonder what exactly is "scaring" these developers from investing more in the Inner Loop? Are the parking minimums really that much of a deal-breaker? Or are there still some obscure ordinances in place that disincentivize development? I know that it can't be the minimum lot sizes, because those apply strictly for sfhs in the city (and they are absent regarding other use types) — and the lot sizes in the Inner Loop (and within Beltway 8) are more permissive than the rest of the area (ch42 also controls ETJ development). Similar story with setbacks.

Ideally (and optimistically), I'd like a "decentralized but cohesive" approach, on account of the lack of zoning. Basically, every square inch, nook, crannie, etc of this city is thoroughly saturated with dense walkable urbanity — for instance, I'd like to "blur" the line between downtown and elsewhere, get some mix-use, shops, etc to "erase" the "office park" ... but still have good accessability with other areas so that you don't have "disconnected islands" like what CityCentre is currently (it's like you said: a nice development that would have been even better along/connected to Inner Loop, if not necessarily inside Downtown). 

Not to mention, there's lots of talk about the "separation" between downtown, TMC, Uptown, etc but they are not all that far from each other. For example, TMC to Downtown is just a straight shot across a park (Hermann) and two tight neighborhoods (Midtown and Museum Park) — meanwhile, Downtown to Uptown follows through Montrose and Greenway/Upper Kirby. Even when the other poster mentioned "the center of the city regarding 34th and Ella", that is basically still right upon the Inner Loop and the urban form there (not to mention that the study wasn't even about the city's population, but more about the metro area sprawl in relation Harris county's distinct shape with that "northwestern point."

Basically, I'd like to move beyond the "quintessential American" zoning product of "singular downtown and everything else drop off to sfh" and go more  "raw urban mass saturated throughout the city". I guess Tokyo provides a good example of what I mean, especially as I've seen many urbanists praise the Japanese national zoning system for the deregulated approach and resultant affordable urbanity (similar to Houston). But these places in Asia like Shenzen, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc they are living in the future.

Interesting that this seems to be moving forward before City Centre 7/AC Hotel (now shown as Future Development in the site map), which was confusingly supposed to start first. 

Agreed. Genuinely impressed this one seems to have come back from the dead - even though it seemed to have more momentum pre-covid. 

Should be decent height for that area. Marathon's tower next door isn't super tall, but it's around 340' from what I recall. This doesn't look too far off from that.

"CityCentre Six will be a 19-story, 320K SF Class-A office tower in CityCentre, a mixed-use complex in west Houston, Midway announced Wednesday. A confidential tenant has signed a lease for 65% of the building, and construction is scheduled to begin in the second quarter. Completion is slated for 2026.

Wow that's awesome news! This will definitely be the best-looking building in the CityCentre/T&C area... if it holds up to the renderings. Fingers crossed they don't take away the wavy aspect and just turn it into a box.

Dow, a materials science company, will anchor the 320K SF, 19-story building in Midway’s west Houston mixed-use complex, CityCentre, Midway said in a news release Friday. 

“Dow's commitment as the anchor tenant has been a driving force behind the project's strong momentum and underscores the strong leasing demand for CityCentre office space, which remains 100% leased,” Chris Seckinger, vice president of investment and development at Midway, said in the release.

“Their presence not only confirms the tower's status as a premier business destination but also reflects the confidence leading enterprises have in our vision for the district.”

Dow leased a substantial portion of the building's office space for its Houston Dow Center, according to Midway. Houston Dow Center's current address is 1254 Enclave Parkway in the Energy Corridor, according to its website.
