A wave of development....

Bisnow:

http://www.bisnow.com/commercial-rea...ure-of-uptown/

Quote:
Uptown Houston District CEO John Breeding (speaking to our 350 attendees) says development is booming in his submarket across all property types. Residential is the bulk of construction, with over 20 multifamily high-rises in the works. There are eight hotels in discussion that would add 2,000 rooms, with four planning to break ground next year. (It's a good time to be in the mini soap business.) There's 2M SF of office development in the pipeline. TxDOT is reconstructing the 59/610 interchange starting in 2017 and ending 2021, and John says his district's $190M mass transit plan is more than just transportation improvement; it'll remake Uptown. Fun fact: Uptown is the 14th-largest business district in the country.

Mixed-Use Development

http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/b...ould-slow.html

Quote:
PM Realty Group has plans to turn a long-standing strip center in Montrose into a mixed-use development, but prosperous tenants in the location are not prepared to close their doors just yet.

The Houston-based real estate company purchased the 2.14-acre block at Montrose and Westheimer earlier this year with the knowledge that the tenants, Half Price Books, Spec’s, Papa Johns, 3-6-9 China Bistro and Jack in the Box, had long-term lease agreements in place.

At this point, they are in negotiations in the tenant buyout phase, and design plans for the new structure are not finalized.
“We knew, going in, it would tie us up for at least seven to 10 years,” said Wade Bowlin, executive vice president with PM Realty Group. “If we could work out a way to get the property sooner, mixed-use would be our intent.”

PM Realty Group did not share early design plans, but several sources confirmed the mixed-use structure could include residential with retail on the ground floor.

The Half Price Books in the strip, at 1011 Westheimer, takes up 8,000 square feet, and sales were up 14.5 percent in October from the same month in 2012.

The company said it has yet to make a decision on whether to stay in the current center after construction is complete or move to another location.

“We are in conversations and negotiations with them (the owner),” said Kathy Doyle Thomas, executive vice president. “We are talking amicably about it, and they really want us to stay. But we would have to move out for a couple of years, and we haven’t made that decision yet.”

Bowlin said the project could still be years away, and if at some point the company is unable to buy out the groups there, PM Realty will begin to lease the vacant space in the strip.

Rendering: Phillips 66 breaks ground on new corporate campus



Quote:
Phillips 66 broke ground Friday on its new corporate campus in the Westchase District.

The 1.1 million-square-foot facility will house all of the company’s 1,800 Houston-area employees once construction is finished in about three years. The architect is St. Louis-based HOK, and the general contractor is Houston-based W.S. Bellows Construction.

The campus is the latest of several energy companies that are building corporate campuses in the Houston area as they compete for new hires and retain key employees.

Read our centerpiece on the deluge of these energy campuses in the Houston area.

The Phillips 66 campus is designed to house the downstream company that spun off from Houston oil major ConocoPhillips (NYSE; COP) last year, and will include a café, fitness center, credit union, covered parking and training and development center.

Houston has such a big population. If it had even half the amount of mid-rise development of a city like Berlin, it would be much more influential and dynamic. You'd think the demand would be there. How long with it be before a critical mass of Houstonians demand to live downtown?

I think the people that move into urban places like downtown are foreigners or just people from other states. Occasionally you got some Houstonians moving into downtown, uptown, etc.

That last one is an attractive building (besides the California-esque palm tree). Apparently designed by Humphreys and Partners. I wouldn't mind seeing them do some buildings in Austin.
