First phase of Buffalo Bayou U/C



Quote:
By Cara Smith
May 9th. 2017

The first phase of Buffalo Heights is now under construction, the Houston Business Journal confirmed with a Midway spokesperson. That phase will include the previously announced 96,000-square-foot H-E-B store, 230 upscale multifamily units at a property dubbed the St. Andrie, 2,000 square feet of retail space and three floors of boutique office space in One Buffalo Heights, the mixed-use development's office building.

The H-E-B, which should deliver in spring 2019, will include a walk-up coffee and food concept that'll offer to-go and casual dine-in service

Long overdue.

http://www.khou.com/traffic/take-a-v...road/438790454

Quote:
HOUSTON – Big changes have been proposed for “Lower” Westheimer Road in the Montrose area.

Many drivers know this as the area with two very narrow lanes in each direction with a lot of pot holes and few turn lanes.

The City of Houston uploaded to YouTube computer generated video that shows proposed changes, which in short turn the road into a one-land roadway in each direction with dedicated turn lanes.

The city’s Planning Department writes: “As part of ReBuild Houston, a portion of the Lower Westheimer Corridor is slated for improvements. The Capital Improvement Plan project includes Elgin Street from Main Street to Bagby Street, and Westheimer Road between Bagby Street and Montrose Boulevard. An enhanced pre-engineering study will result in specific recommendations for these roadways.”

Exhibits from the public meeting are published for review and comment. Comments will be accepted through May 31.

Next phase of Rice Village transformation begins

Quote:
Rice Village, a shopping district near Rice University, has begun the next phase of its ongoing makeover.

Fort Worth-based Trademark Property Co., which manages Rice Village, has been overseeing a multimillion-dollar renovation of the Rice Village District since 2015. The latest phase will update the retail space and streetscape on the south side of Amherst Street between Kirby Drive and Kelvin Drive.

Additionally, the tops of several retail facades will be removed and greenery will be added to “offer a visual glimpse of Rice Village’s rooftop parking.” Rice Village launched its new parking plan earlier this year, switching the location of the area’s free and low-cost parking. Now, customers can park for free for up to two hours in the central parking garage and rooftop parking area.

There also will be a new soft seating area with a crushed granite surface at the intersection of Amherst and Kelvin. Similarly, Morningside Plaza, another open space, opened earlier this year near D’Amico’s Italian Market Cafe, Nao Ramen Houston and Hopdoddy Burger Bar.

Other changes include widened sidewalks separated from vehicular zones with landscaped planters boxes, new crosswalks and public art added throughout Rice Village. A mural by Houston outdoor artist Daniel Anguilu will be added on Amherst, while both sides of Morningside parking garage will feature murals by another local outdoor artist, Tierney Malone. Elsewhere in Rice Village, other recent art installations include an origami-shaped aluminum owl by California metal sculptor Nathan Mabry and a mural by Houston artist Mario Enrique Figueroa Jr., better known as GONZO247.

I've always thought the same thing. I think it was initially built in the 30s or 40s. Not sure. But it's never been attractive. But the West U people love it regardless. I hope it is turned into something that is at least aesthetically nice.

This morning on the way back to Austin, I took West Loop 610 northward over the 59 interchange, where there's a view of Uptown. I was really overwhelmed with the view...it sort of made me dizzy. There's no way to describe it. People have to see it to believe it, and photos don't come anywhere near doing it justice.

I know what you're talking about. I said the same thing in the Texas skyline thread that Uptown's long skyline might be the most impressive of all of HOUs skylines.

I can only imagine what Houston's skyline would look like if all of the city's highrises were built in the CBD.

Houston's historic Petroleum Building to be redeveloped into high-end hotel

Quote:
A Dallas-based development group sold the historic 21-story Petroleum Building, which is now called the Great Southwest Building, in downtown Houston to Choice Hotels International Inc. (NYSE: CHH) for a high-end hotel concept.

The acquisition is part of a larger expansion plan that Choice Hotels has embarked on to bring another 10 Cambria-branded hotels to the Lone Star state — in downtown Dallas at Tower Petroleum, downtown Houston in the former Petroleum Building, Richardson, near the Houston airport, downtown Austin on Rainey Street, San Antonio, The Woodlands, Midland, Waco and Galveston.

The hotelier's plans in Houston to redevelop the Art Deco skyscraper, which was built in 1927, at 1314 Texas St. come on the heels of Choice Hotel executives partnering with Dallas developer John Kirtland.

Cannon said the development team is working on bringing the new Cambria-branded hotel at Houston's historic Petroleum Building to fruition.

"We are just starting work there; the key count will be different than Dallas," said Cannon, adding the hotel could open by early to mid-2019.

1111 Main

First rendering of the project, which will be an expansion of GreenStreet. Looks to be 8 office levels with residential above.

Quote:
Shifting from the traditional corporate cubicle, The Concept at GreenStreet offers entrepreneurs and big businesses alike the opportunity to create a more collaborative and innovative work environment surrounded by amenities within the heart of Downtown Houston.

With floor plates between 5,000 and 37,000 SF available for a one-of-a-kind office environment, The Concept features 18’ ceilings, rectangular spaces with no core to create efficient and dynamic environments and the opportunity to create mezzanines and indoor and outdoor break areas.

They're tearing down the Americana building but leaving untouched that godawful parking garage that occupies the other half of the block. Crazy!
