Inner-Loop multifamily project gets green light



Quote:
Houston Business Journal by Jennifer Dawson, Reporter
Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2011, 6:32am CDT

The Dinerstein Cos. .. and Coventry Real Estate Advisors .. are moving forward with a multifamily project inside the 610 Loop.

Construction can commence now that the partners have closed on the acquisition of 6.25 acres at 4410 Westheimer from the Kagan and Rudy families. Terms of the transaction were not released.

“We think it’s the best location in the city,” said Brian Dinerstein, a partner with the Houston-based developer.

Dinerstein will design, build and manage the 340-unit apartment complex, which will be accompanied by a 10,000-square-foot restaurant space and 15,000 square feet for retail shops.

Luxury high-rise apartments planned inside the Loop

Quote:
Houston Business Journal by Jennifer Dawson, Reporter
Date: Friday, September 23, 2011, 5:00am CDT

PM Realty Group LP .. plans to build a 35-story apartment tower on a prime site inside the Loop, where the Confederate House, formerly State Grille, served diners for more than 50 years.

The Houston-based company acquired the 2.6-acre site on the northeast corner of Weslayan and West Alabama Aug. 22 for an undisclosed price from Interfin Cos., which assembled the tract five years ago with no specific plans for development.

“We were actively out looking at sites,” said Roger Gregory, PM Realty’s CFO. “This was the site we really felt was best-suited for high-rise multifamily.”

New Winfield Gate townhouses look to be luxury ambassadors





Quote:
By Shelby Hodge

09.27.11 | 06:02 am

Imagine a cozy townhouse quarter in London where the architecture reflects Palladian influences. That's what the company has in mind for this development, which is not so coincidentally named after Winfield House, the U.S. Ambassador's residence in London. In fact, each of the 10 floor plans is named after a U.S. ambassador. The Farish, the Harriman and the Annenberg, for example.

Preston Wood & Associates architects has brought the vision to reality — at least in renderings and architectural plans.

The townhomes range from around 3,550 square feet to 5,700 square feet and will stand three to four stories with several plans offering rooftop gardens. At the moment 21 homes are planned for the site but that number could be reduced.

We applaud the plans for the interior landscaping and courtyard with its gushing multi-pronged fountain. The plans promise townhouses overlooking a serene oasis in the heart of urban Houston.

UTMB gets OK to build new island hospital



Quote:
By John DeLapp

Published August 26, 2011

GALVESTON — The University of Texas Medical Branch has cleared a major hurdle and is moving ahead with plans to build a $438 million hospital on the island.

After years of planning and negotiating, the UT Board of Regents gave its thumbs-up to the Jennie Sealy Hospital project at its meeting Thursday. The Galveston-based Sealy & Smith Foundation then pledged $170 million to the construction project.

“We greatly appreciate the continued confidence that the regents, the foundation and Texas’ elected officials have in UTMB,” Dr. David L. Callender, president of the medical branch, said. “This new hospital represents a major milestone in the university’s recovery from Hurricane Ike.”
The new hospital has been in the planning stages for many years, Callender
said.

“I got here in 2007, and it is my understanding that a hospital tower was first proposed in 1997,” he said.

To make way for the new hospital and a utility building, the old Jennie Sealy and Shriners hospitals will be demolished, Callender said.

“We don’t implode and we won’t use a wrecking ball (because of the possibility of having asbestos),” he said. “We will take them down piece by piece.”

The demolition will begin later this fall and continue into the spring, when construction will begin. Four years later, Jennie Sealy should be open for
business.

“In early 2016, we should be ready for patients,” Callender said.

Luxury complex planned near Galleria



Quote:
By NANCY SARNOFF, HOUSTON CHRONICLE

Updated 07:34 p.m., Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Gables Residential plans to break ground early next year on a luxury apartment complex near the Galleria, replacing a funeral home that was recently demolished at the site.

The eight-story project, to be called Gables Tanglewood, will include 327 one- and two-bedroom apartments averaging $1,735 per month, the company estimates.

Atlanta-based Gables has owned the nearly three-acre plot at the northeast corner of San Felipe and Bering since 2007. The property, formerly the site of a J.B. Earthman funeral home, is mostly clear, said Josh Landry, development director for Gables.

After several years in which apartment construction was nearly nonexistent, developers are again proposing and starting multifamily projects as occupancy improves - a result of new jobs and stress in the single-family housing market.

"We weathered the storm," Landry said. " ... We feel good about the job story."

Luxury apartments will replace church



Quote:
By NANCY SARNOFF, HOUSTON CHRONICLE

Updated 04:31 p.m., Sunday, August 28, 2011

The Morgan Group is preparing to break ground on its third high-end apartment complex in the Greenway Plaza area.

The Houston developer just closed on the former Central Presbyterian Church property at the northeast corner of Richmond and Cummins, where it will build a four-story project with 341 studio, one- and two-bedroom units.

The church congregation merged with St. Philip Presbyterian Church on San Felipe, and the building has been vacant for about two years.

The Morgan Group put the 4.5-acre property under contract last October.

The company also built and owns two other multifamily projects in the Greenway Plaza area totaling about 800 units.

The timing is right for a third, said Carter Bechtol, Morgan's senior vice president of development, citing limited new supply and growing demand.

The Shops and Apartments Planned for the Block South of the Alabama Theater



Quote:
Development firm Read King is “gearing up to break ground on” a mixed-use project at the southwest corner of Shepherd and West Alabama, across the street from the shopping center that houses the vacant Alabama Theater. Real Estate Bisnow‘s Catie Brubaker says preleasing has already begun for 30,000 sq. ft. of “high-end” retail; the development would also include 250 luxury apartments. The targeted opening date is in the middle of 2013, so it shouldn’t much matter that the design “is still in flux,” right? The placeholder rendering appears to show 5 stories of apartments perched above 2 retail floors.

3009 Post Oak



Quote:
Houston Business Journal by Jennifer Dawson, Reporter
Date: Monday, November 7, 2011, 11:47am CST

Skanska USA Commercial Development Inc. is breaking ground on a speculative office building in the Galleria area. The move comes nearly two years after Skanska announced it was acquiring the project site and one year after it first estimated construction would begin.

Skanska will start construction immediately on a 20-story building at 3009 Post Oak Blvd., directly east of the Gerald D. Hines Water Wall Park. The 302,000-square-foot building will have 12 stories of office space on top of eight levels of garage parking.

The project will cost $60 million to $90 million to develop, the same cost projection announced in January 2010, said Michael Mair, Skanska’s executive vice president/regional manager.

New tower may replace Galleria-area health club

By Nancy Sarnoff, HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Published 10:20 p.m., Monday, January 9, 2012
http://www.chron.com/business/articl...ub-2452499.php

A health club on a prime parcel in the Galleria area is closing this month, paving the way for a new office tower to be developed.

Documents submitted to the city of Houston reveal a 30-story building in the works for the 24 Hour Fitness site at 1550 Post Oak Blvd. The club is closing Jan. 27.

TIAA-CREF, one of the nation's largest retirement fund providers, owns the property, which is part of the Four Oaks Place office complex. The company declined to comment Monday.

Construction in this area, also known as Uptown, has been active amid strong demand for housing, office and other commercial space, said John Breeding, president of the Uptown Houston District.

Breeding estimates $1 billion in new real estate development could be built there over the next few years.

Uptown's office market is tightening.

The vacancy rate for top-class office space in this part of town was 8.6 percent at the end of last year, according to a market report from the real estate firm Trans-western. In the third quarter it was 9.2 percent.

If the new building moves forward, it will join two others under construction on Post Oak and another perhaps in the works.

Skanska USA Commercial Development is building a 20-story tower with 302,000 square feet near the Water Wall at 3009 Post Oak Blvd.

Just to the north, Stream Realty is developing a 22-story building with Redstone Real Estate. About half of the 312,000-square-foot structure, expected to open in 2013, will be occupied by Birmingham, Ala.-based BBVA Compass.

And about a year ago, office developer Hines was said to be in talks to buy land on the BLVD Place site for a project, but the company has not commented.

Plans to redevelop the health club site have been in the works for several years.

The proposed building was designed in 2008, but the project was delayed amid the economic downturn, according to a document filed with the city last month requesting a variance to reduce the setback on Post Oak Boulevard from 25 feet to 15 feet. The variance was approved last week.

Copies of renderings of the project provided by the city mention Trans-western, which manages Four Oaks and was associated with the design of the building in 2008. They also include Pickard Chilton, an architecture firm based in New Haven, Conn., that designed the building, according to a news report from 2008.

A spokesman for Pickard Chilton, which also designed downtown's BG Group Place, said its client asked the company not to comment on the project. Transwestern also did not comment.

Commercial real estate in the Houston area has outperformed other places harder hit by the downturn.

The energy industry is driving the growth locally, Breeding said.

"No matter what the economy does, energy is going be the foundation for growth, and Houston is the intellectual capital for the energy industry worldwide," he said.

The Post Oak building site has housed a health club since 1994, when the Q Club opened there.

"It was a great amenity for the area, but in the end, the property is just too valuable for something like that," Breeding said.
