Massive mixed-use project planned for Museum District

A mixed-use project with a high-rise component is planned in the Museum District, according to public records.

Excelsior Land Co. Inc. submitted a plat record to the city of Houston for the yet-to-be-announced project, located in part on two city blocks bounded by Southmore Avenue, Main Street, Wichita Avenue and Fannin Street.

Excelsior Land’s plat record calls for Palm Avenue, sandwiched between the two city blocks, to be closed off and for the two city blocks to be considered one site for redevelopment. The plat record is expected to go before the Houston planning commission on April 14.
Still in the design phase:

From cranky over on HAIF:

Early stages of design - design will take another year
Development would be like City Center
3 buildings to be constructed in this order: medical tower, residential tower, luxury boutique hotel (the most luxurious in Houston or at least top 5)
Each building would have their own parking; underground is being considered but may not happen because of cost
All buildings would have first floor retail/restaurants with outdoor seating - this is why they want to close Palm street
The vision includes a performance stage
Palm street greenery would be open to the public but privately owned. One option they will explore is having the city turn Palm street into a public park
Palm street greenery would be enjoyable/designed to be used year round
Targeting all types of restaurants: family friendly, casual, fine, coffee shop, bars
Multiple entrances to buildings - all entrances will be attractive
Existing oak trees would be kept and additional trees and greenery would be added
Closing Palm street to make it all green space would be a beautiful entrance to Museum Park and would serve as a link between Museum District and Museum Park
Developers will continue to involve the neighborhood as plans progress.
