Australian developer to build apartment tower in Midtown

Quote:
Caydon Property Group, a Melbourne, Australia-based developer, plans to break ground in January on The Midtown, a 28-story, 380-unit tower at 2850 Fannin. The developer purchased the city block for $8M in January, according to a March article in the Australian Financial Review. The asset is across the street from the Midtown Superblock where Camden is developing Camden McGowen Station, an eight-story, 315-unit luxury apartment project. Houston-based Ziegler Cooper will design The Midtown, which will have hotel-style residences. Caydon's Joe Russo also purchased a second city block in Midtown to develop 600 apartment units, shops and a piazza, according to the Houston Business Journal. Unlike Camden, Caydon has no desire to operate multifamily assets. Caydon intends to be a merchant-builder on the projects.

Revitalization Gives Increased Presence to Museum of Fine Arts Houston

Quote:
One of the largest museums in the United States is undergoing a major revitalization that will produce three new standout buildings. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) provides a home for approximately 64,000 pieces of art while hosting numerous programs and community workshops. The Audrey Jones Beck Building and the Caroline Wiess Law Building are currently the main galleries where the collections and exhibitions are presented to the public. The campus redevelopment, spanning 14 acres of land in the heart of Houston's Museum District, will be named after billionaire Fayez S. Sarofim and his wife Susan, who contributed $70 million towards the $450 million cost of the project.

Chinese firm will change Houston

Quote:
Tianqing Real Estate Development LLC (Tianqing RED), a US subsidiary of one of China's largest real estate companies, has acquired a prime location in Houston to build high-rise buildings of mixed use that will change the city's skyline in the next few years.

Tianqing RED recently closed on the purchase of the land on Allen Parkway, west of downtown and across from the newly improved green space Buffalo Bayou. It is the last track of undeveloped land of that scale at such a prime location in the city.

"The land is a rectangle with hard corners, sufficient depth and width for development. It has great views all around. To the north there is the Buffalo Bayou, to the south the Texas Medical Center, to the east downtown Houston, and to the west the financial district Galleria. We are very happy to be able to get our hands on it," said David Du, president of Tianqing RED.

A total of $500 million will be invested in the project. The planned first phase includes a luxury hotel of 150-180 rooms and a high-rise condo. Construction is expected to start by the end of 2017 or early 2018. Another high-rise condo, a class-A office building and possibly a luxury senior-living building will be built later.

Upon completion, there will be two condo towers with a total of 180 units along with the hotel, an office building and ground-level retail spaces. The project aims to become a new landmark in Houston.

EB-5, the popular immigration investment program among Chinese, will be used to raise part of the money for the project.

However, Du said Tianqing RED will not rely heavily on EB-5 for financing. When it gets ready to start construction, parent company Tianqing Group will guarantee and provide the remaining funds for the project, he said.

Spacious park planned near River Oaks District

Quote:
Dallas-based Stonelake Capital Partners, the entity behind The James luxury apartment development, is developing a five-acre park at the northeast corner of Westheimer and Mid Lane, Stonelake's William Peeples told the Houston Business Journal. Specifically, the park will be between the railroad tracks that separate Highland Village from the River Oaks District and Mid Lane.

Stonelake is in the process of demolishing the office buildings on the land, including a former Wallis State Bank retail branch and the original location of Kiran's, a longstanding Indian restaurant that recently announced plans to move into the Kirby Grove development. Construction on the park should begin in 60 days, Peeples said. It's unclear how long construction will take.

However, Uptown residents shouldn't get too acclimated to the added green space.

"(The) highest and best use is not a park, but we feel it's a great amenity for the development and the area," Peeples said.

Rather, Stonelake's long-term vision for the prime plot is to develop a luxury mixed-use project. Plans aren't solidified, but the development could include office, retail and perhaps residential units, Peeples said. A timeline wasn't provided, other than Stonelake's plans to move forward with the mixed-use development "when market conditions change," Peeples said.

Some great, urban looking projects there. Esp. the New Classical and New Urbanist ones.

Hopefully the times of isolated business parks and suburban housing is finally over soon in the Houston Metro.

Nobu, Fig & Olive to open in Houston's Galleria Mall

Quote:
wo high-end restaurants have confirmed more details about their first Houston locations.

Nobu, a wildly popular sushi restaurant, and New York-based Fig & Olive will open in fall 2017 in the Galleria mall, according to a statement from Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG). Both will be located in the former Saks Fifth Avenue space that is being remodeled after Saks’ new Galleria location opened in April.

A Nobu representative confirmed in June that the restaurant planned to open in the Galleria, but few details were available at the time.

This is Nobu's first location in Houston and second in Texas. It will occupy a second-level, 10,000-square-foot space with private elevator access, according to the release. New York-based RKF brokered the transaction.

Fig & Olive, an upscale French Riviera restaurant, will open its first location in Texas. It plans to occupy a street-level spot in an approximately 7,000-square-foot space.

Nobu has locations in New York, California, Las Vegas, Florida and Hawaii, as well as a Dallas location. It also has several international locations. Fig & Olive has multiple locations in New York and California, as well as one each in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
