Luxury hotel brand mulls Houston opening

Quote:
Loews Hotels and Resorts owns a plot of land in Uptown that could one day occupy a Loews hotel, the brand's first in the Houston market, a Loews spokesperson told the Houston Business Journal.

Loews Hotels and Resorts, a subsidiary of New York-based Loews Corp. (NYSE: L), has "work underway to assess feasibility and concept for a hotel," the spokesperson said, adding that no decisions have been made. The land's specific location wasn't made available, and the spokesperson couldn't be reached for further comment. It's unclear how long Loews has owned the land.

A timeline on when Loews would develop a Houston hotel wasn't made available, but "Houston will be the first to know when the time comes," the spokesperson said. Loews has been interested in Houston since at least 2013, when the company's then-president and CEO Paul Whetsell said Loews was interested in entering the Houston market either through an acquisition or a new development, Hotel News Now reported.

723 Main to Become AC Hotel by Marriott

Quote:
Construction will not start on the project until the first quarter of 2018 and take 13 months to complete. About 200 construction jobs and as many as 100 permanent hotel employees will be created by the project, Franks said.

"To be sure, the estimated $44 million project will add more shine to downtown's overall revitalization, which includes new residential towers, hotels and restaurants. Yet, unlike some of the historic structures nearby, the original facade of 723 Main will remain hidden beneath cladding that was placed over it 50 years ago."

The developer is planning a series of improvements in order to turn the building into "modernized" version of what it is now. Those include automatic glass entry doors, new windows on Main and Rusk, canopy replacement and repair and new lighting.

The hotel will have an event space able to house as many as 400 guests for weddings, conferences or civic events. It will be called the Zoe Ballroom, using the name of a silent movie theater that once operated on the block called the Zoe Theater.

More mixed-use heading for Allen Parkway

Quote:
Roberto Contreras, president and CEO of Houston-based DC Partners, told the Houston Business Journal he plans to start an approximately $500 million mixed-use development at the southeast corner of Allen Parkway and Gillette Street in early 2018. The 6.01-acre project is expected to feature a luxury hotel, housing, shops and an office tower. Gensler designed the overall master plan layout for the site.

The company, along with Tianqing Real Estate Development LLC, bought the property from HTX Real Estate Partners in a deal that closed in May. Contreras said he could not disclose the cost of the deal.

Contreras said the luxury hotel, the first phase of the project, would have about 150 to 180 rooms and would open around 2020.

AC Hotels sure are ugly. Almost finished one here in downtown Minneapolis and it's hideous as well.

Agreed. Only one that looks good is AC Hotel Denver and that's because its dual-branded.

Court of appeals rules in favor of Ashby high-rise developers

Quote:
A state appellate court has reversed a portion of the 2014 judgment that would have required developers of the so-called Ashby high-rise to pay damages to residents in the neighborhood near Rice University should they build the controversial residential tower.

The judgment was based on a jury's verdict awarding damages of almost $1.7 million to nearby homeowners in a protracted battle to keep Buckhead Development Partners from building the 21-story tower.

The Chronicle reported in 2014:

The 12-person jury awarded damages to 20 of the nearby households - contingent upon the high-rise being built - agreeing that it's the wrong project on the wrong site. Only those living within about one block of the high-rise were awarded damages.

CityCentre Developer Midway Makes a Move on That 136-Acre Former KBR Site Along Buffalo Bayou in the Fifth Ward

Quote:
Whatever’s in store for the 136-acre former KBR site along the the Ship Channel at 4100 Clinton Dr., CityCentre developer Midway now looks to be involved. Documents filed with the county clerk’s office near the end of May reveal that Cathexis Holdings recently sold the site to KBRN, an entity connected to Midway through a recently minted corporate partnership (and officially located down the hall from Midway’s CityCentre office.)

And might Midway — which also heads the team that turned failed Downtown Mall Houston Pavilions into GreenStreet, and is developing the Kirby Grove park-and-office-building complex along the banks of the Southwest Fwy. in Upper Kirby — have some big office-shopping-residential-and-park-y plans in mind for this vast property, which lies about a mile and a half downstream from Downtown? A couple of clues are out there:

Midway’s annual report from 2015 mentions plans for a major mixed-use project along Houston’s “historic riverfront.” The KBR site, set amid other historic and current industrial operations, is bordered by about a mile of the northern bank of Buffalo Bayou.

(The Turning Basin, where that same waterway officially takes on the name of the Houston Ship Channel, is less than a mile to the east.) Midway has also been applying for a trademark for a yet-unannounced project called Northbank Buffalo Bayou; the company published the legal notice required as part of that application process just a few days after the KBRN sale documents were signed.

Intercontinental-branded hotel to rise in Texas Medical Center

Quote:
The hotel portion of a two-in-one hotel and apartment development in the Texas Medical Center will be anIntercontinental-branded hotel, which speaks to the ethnic and geographic diversity of the medical center's clientele, the hotel's developers told the Houston Business Journal.

U.K.-based InterContinental Hotels Group PLC (NYSE: IHG) will open its 21-story, 353-room Intercontinental Houston Medical Center in late 2018. The hotel, which will share a lobby with a Greystar apartment development dubbed Latitude Med Center, will include 11,800 square feet of meeting space, a 7,800-square-foot ballroom and more. The joint apartment and hotel project, located at 6750 Main St., is being developed by Houston-based Medistar Corp. and TRC Capital Partners.

PMRG's 3300 Main high-rise in Midtown moving forward!

Asbestos-Laden Mod Code Enforcement Office Now Getting Swapped for Mixed Use Highrise on Main St.

Quote:
THE 1967 OCCUPANT of 3300 Main St., which previously housed the city code enforcement office, is currently getting its asbestos removed in anticipation of its impending demolition, according to a reader involved in the work. The structure and its parking lot grounds were bought from the city in 2011 by the Midtown Redevelopment Authority, who later sold it to PM Realty (the developers of the glass-petticoated apartment tower at 2929 Weslayan, who are also currently working on the less-is-more-branded Ivy Lofts tiny condo complex in East Downtown).

What’s going to take the code building’s place, between the new MATCH box theater collection and the Houston Community College buildings to the north on Main St.? The involved reader confirms that the rendering below shows the current design in place along the light rail line; materials from co-investor AECOM say the highrise should hold 336 apartments and 14,390 sq.ft. of retail space.

The reader says construction should start in September after demolition wraps up.

Houston retail surges with strongest absorption in nearly a decade

Quote:
Thanks to a healthy pipeline of mixed-use developments and hungry grocery developers, Houston's retail industry posted some of the highest absorption numbers in nearly a decade, according to a recent CBRE report.

Houston absorbed roughly 1.5 million square feet during the second quarter of 2016, which is the best net absorption for Houston retail since 2007, according to the report. The greater Houston retail market's occupancy is 94.2 percent and the Class A retail market has even higher occupancy rates, according to the report.

Was that comment really necessary? Houston is actually doing a terrific job in terms of growth and construction.

Just one question to the Texas Natives. I know for a fact that YES Everything is bigger in Texas but one thing it is NOT is your cities or lack of city skyline. Is there any plans in the near future or future to build a supertall skyscraper. I have visit Texas and WOW your freeways are just Amazing with your double decked freeways but your cities is lacking great Skylines. I have heard from some that both Austin and Dallas are planning for Supertalls and I hope it will be the case are Houston also in that staged of a planning to develop a supertall. Thanks.

IMO a supertall is something very nice to have, but a skyline can be great without one. All major cities in Texas (cept' San Antonio) have built a lot of towers as of late. San Antonio's skyline is slacking given its pop figures. Majority of Austin's skyline was built within the last 12 years and Houston has three.

To answer your question, there's only two supertalls proposed for Texas, both in Dallas. Unfortunately they are planned for an area that has a height limit of 300-400 feet (not sure of the exact number), which means their height figures may be cut down. They've already been deemed as hazards by the FAA.
