More residential coming to the TMC

Exclusive: Houston real estate companies partner on luxury med center apartments

Quote:
A luxury, 375-unit apartment complex is coming to the Medical Center, and it's sharing its real estate with another high-profile project in the area.

Houston-based Greystar is partnering with Houston-based Medistar Corp. to develop a luxury apartment complex on the same acreage of land as Medistar's 357-room hotel at 6750 Main Street, in the central portion of the Texas Medical Center.

Construction should kick off in the next 60 days, and the project should deliver in the first quarter of 2018, said David Reid, Greystar' senior managing director of development. Greystar is the general partner and the developer. Medistar is the limited partnership. Atlanta-based The Preston Partnership is the architect, Hoar Construction was tapped as the general contractor. The project's cost wasn't disclosed.

Dallas developer buys former Texas Instruments campus in Houston 'burb for mixed-use project

Quote:
Dallas developer has closed on almost 200 acres that includes the former Texas Instruments Inc. plant for its first Houston-area project.

Dallas-based StreetLevel Investments and joint venture partner Provident Realty Advisors Inc. purchased 192 acres in Stafford to develop a mixed-use concept with more than 350,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, 2,400 residential units, Class A office space, two hotels and a health club all built around a central food hall and park.

“The creative team aims to transform the campus, with its long history as a tech crucible, into a meaningful new hybrid," said Peter Merwin, principal and design director for Gensler, the architect for the project.

Houston-based Edge Realty Partners, a related entity to StreetLevel, is handling leasing. A general contractor hasn't been selected yet. Austin-based landscape architecture firm TBG Partners is a consultant. Construction is expected to begin later this year, and Phase I of the $500 million, multiphase development should open in summer 2017, according to a statement from StreetLevel.

I was in Houston two weeks ago and I took some pictures. These are some projects I saw in Downtown, Houston. I can't remember the exact addresses but the first one was in front of the Chase Building with the observation deck and the rest pics are of nearby places.

I stayed at the Museum District and my friend told me there are many projects sprouting up in the area. These are some:


I went to the NASA space center and a new building is springing up.

Australian Developer Buys Two Sites in Midtown for 1,000 residential units

Quote:
Melbourne high-rise developer Joe Russo has secured two development sites in Houston, Texas, with plans for about 1000 apartments.

He paid about US$8 million ($10.5 million) for a small block in Houston's "latte and laptop" mid-town district with plans for more than 350 apartments over 28 levels.

Russo told the Australian Financial Review it had an end value of about $228 million.

He has also bought a second site across the road that will hold more than 600 apartments, with plans including shops and a piazza.

"I looked at five cities in the US and fell in love with Houston," he said.

"It's a growing city with 6.5 million people, the biggest medical precinct in the US. In the midtown area where I have acquired my sites, there's a lot of gentrification going on with bars and restaurants opening up and a new light rail in operation."

Beijing Developers Begin Construction on $300 Million Mixed-Use Project in Pearland

Quote:
HOUSTON – America Modern Green, a subsidiary of Beijing-based Modern Land China, has begun construction on a $300 million mixed-use project that will deliver office, retail, multifamily, seniors living and a hotel to Pearland, just south of Houston.

The 48-acre development, called the Ivy District, is expected to have a wide variety of commercial and residential building on-site upon completion in a few years. Ivy District will be located on Highway 288, eight miles south of the Texas Medical Center in southern Harris County.

The Ivy District is expected to include a 224-unit seniors community, 46 townhomes, more than 200,000 SF of Class A office, retail space, 335 units of rental apartments and 142 condominium units, according to the recently revised plan for the project. A hotel has been considered, but the developers will probably opt to build office space instead.

Land work for utilities and streets is underway and vertical construction is expected to begin in 2017.

Long-awaited Buffalo Bayou mixed-use moving forward

Quote:
The second phase of Regent Square, a highly-anticipated mixed-use project just south of Allen Parkway that's been delayed for years, is finally moving forward.

Building permits should be secured by the third quarter or end of the year, a source with Houston's Morris Architects, one of the architects on the project, told the Houston Business Journal. Boston-based General Investment & Development Cos. is the developer of Regent Square. GID has already progressed through the design portion, the source said. Harvey Builders is the general contractor.

Morris, as well as Dallas-based HKS Inc. and Houston-based Ziegler Cooper Architects, designed portions of the 24-acre project. Boston-based CBT Architects is the design architect, and Houston-based The Office of James Burnett is the landscape architect, according to bid documents. A total of 10 architects are working on the project, according to GID's website.

Upon completion, Regent Square should include roughly 400,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, 240,000 square feet of office space, 950 multifamily units and 4,200 parking spaces. The planned walkable community is near Buffalo Bayou along Dunlavy and West Dallas streets on land formerly occupied by the 1960s-era Allen House Apartments, which were almost all demolished in 2007 to make way for Regent Square.

Mixed-use district near Exxon campus lands major headquarters

Quote:
CityPlace, a delayed 60-acre urban district near Exxon Mobil Corp.’s new campus in Springwoods Village, has secured a major tenant for an office building.

Houston-based American Bureau of Shipping will move its global headquarters to CityPlace 2, a 10-story, 326,800-square-foot mixed-use building that will begin construction early next year. ABS and a subsidiary, ABS Group, will occupy the entire office portion of the building, which also will include 23,700 square feet of ground-floor retail. It is expected to be complete in late 2018.

When completed, CityPlace will include 4 million square feet of Class A office space with 400,000 square feet of integrated retail space, a full-service hotel and additional luxury multifamily projects. The project was announced before oil prices started to fall and was thus delayed. As of last summer, the development partners were still deciding whether they would wait for a lead tenant before breaking ground or would begin construction speculatively.

This is almost too good to be built in Houston, and hopefully some other developers will realize this is how you build a truly urban experience.

Museo Plaza

Mixed-use development for the Museum District. 54-story high-rise, hotel and medical office building.



Museum District Neighborhood Association received an update this week on the project. Trammell Crow is the developer.

c/o cranky @HAIF:

Quote:
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.





http://www.museumparkna.org/resource...%204.27.16.pdf

Quote:
The project is presented as a unique, one-of-a-kind mixed use neighborhood development on three city blocks bounded by Main St., Fannin, Southmore and Wichita. The project will include a hotel at the current site of Mann Eye clinic with 150-180 keys, a residential tower with 300 units north of the hotel, and a medical office building east of the hotel. All will be linked by a pedestrian plaza/”green space” replacing Palm Street. A restaurant is planned on Palm St. along with a Performance Pavilion on Palm St. facing Main. Green space is considered the primary driver for success because a successful green space gives more opportunity for restaurants and retail to succeed. Parking will be above ground and Southmore will be required to be widened by the developer for the length of the project. Private ownership should deter the transient population.
