"Today, with occupancies up dramatically, with the market really clamoring for new technology and the latest in new buildings ... it's a wonderful point in time to develop new product," said John Goff, chairman and CEO of Crescent Real Estate Holdings, which will develop the new tower, one of at least eight office projects proposed or underway downtown.

At 600,000 square feet, the Crescent building, designed by HKS Architects, is expected to break ground this summer and could be ready for tenants by the end of 2016.

Hines Announces Construction Start for 48-Story Tower in Houston; One of the Largest Spec Projects in the World

Quote:
HOUSTON – Hines, the Houston-based international real estate firm, has announced the start of construction of a downtown Houston skyscraper, one of the largest “spec” office projects in the world.

The Hines project, 609 Main at Texas, will be a 48-story, 1,050,000-square-foot office tower at the corner of Main and Texas streets in Downtown Houston. Hines had been planning a smaller building, but the firm increased the size of the tower because demand for space in the building appears to be growing, says George Lancaster, senior vice president of corporate communications for Hines.

Without a pre-leased tenant, starting a “spec” or speculative project of this magnitude demonstrates a significant amount of confidence in the economy. But Houston’s energy business has been expanding and generating growth in other sectors for several years.

Houston, with 82,000 new jobs last year, led the nation in job growth and housing starts in 2013. The city just set another record for building permits.

Office occupancy is exceptionally high in Houston and rents are rising. The Energy Corridor in west Houston has and Class A occupancy rate of 99 percent.

Downtown occupancy rates are high in Houston office towers. The Houston CBD vacancy rate is 9.2 percent in overall and 7.5 percent in Class A, according to CBRE.

Hines said in a news release that construction is expected to take 36 months, with delivery scheduled for February 2017.

Sasol tower breaks ground in Energy Corridor



Quote:
Houston-based PM Realty Group broke ground last week on the fourth building of Woodbranch Plaza in the Energy Corridor.

Slated for delivery in April 2015, the 175,000-square-foot building is where Sasol, a South Africa-based international integrated energy and chemical company, will house its North American headquarters. The complex is at 12140 Wickchester Lane, near Dairy Ashford and Interstate 10.

Room rates that soar among the highest in Houston.

These are a few of the flourishes planned for the Hotel Alessandra, the latest lodging project announced for the eastern side of Houston's downtown ahead of the Super Bowl's return in 2017.

"Looking at downtown, we really felt we needed to differentiate ourselves from hotels that already exist and the ones on the way," Jamie Bryant, executive vice president of Midway, the company that will own the Alessandra, said Tuesday.

The 225-room hotel will be built in the GreenStreet retail-office cluster formerly known as the Houston Pavilions. It will be adjacent to the Forever 21 clothing store, on a block bounded by Main, Dallas, Polk and Fannin.

HOK’s Roger Soto designed the building, which also will have as much as 20,000 square feet of meeting space.

Construction is expected to start in by year-end at 6750 Main. The group said it is evaluating hotel brands and operators.

It looks like engineers have begun soil testing the thin strip of land left along Crawford St. downtown between the Hess Tower parking garage and the surface parking lot where the new Marriott Marquis hotel is about to go up. Conveniently for the rendering above showing Ziegler Cooper Architects’ design for a 39-story residential tower on that 72-ft.-wide site, there’s nothing there yet to block the view of the building’s lower portions from Discovery Green — but without the hotel in place the skybridge drawn in at the second level connecting across Crawford to the nonexistent second story of a parking lot does look a little strange.

The new apartments are being developed by Trammell Crow. They’ll sit on a 12-story garage podium. Some of its 314 units will have views of the Texas-shaped “lazy river” on the Marriott Marquis’s upper deck, but they’ll also have their own pool piece above the garage, with this view of Discovery Green and the George R. Brown.

Construction on the new building isn’t scheduled to start until early next year; it’s expected to take 2 years to complete.

These developments are incredibly urban for a Texan city, particularly since the state is almost as famous as California for auto-oriented sprawl, given the presence of the oil industry!

I'm happy that a lot of american cities are finally starting to create walkable neighborhoods that feel safe and have an actual street culture. I think that conservatives are starting to see that cities make more money and attract more people this way.

Construction permitting set a record for the second month in a row in April.

Data analyzed by the Greater Houston Partnership show the running 12-month total of building permits issued by the City of Houston topped $6.8 billion, the highest value since January 2002. Residential permit values rose 32 percent from last year and nonresidential rose 26 percent.

In April, the city issued building permits totaling $976 million, a 126 percent increase from the same time last year. This was the highest monthly permit activity value on record for Houston. Permits for nonresidential projects, such as offices and education buildings, rose 158 percent from last year.

Residential permits increased 77.4 percent.

Multifamily permits more than quadrupled in that time, accounting for the year-over-year growth in residential permits.
