At the announced 31 stories, the new structure would be one floor shorter taller.

According to the report, parking will account for the building’s first 10 floors, though the renderings included in the announcement (above) appear to show a garage a bit shorter than that. The remaining floors are planned to accommodate company growth. Construction is expected to be complete by the spring of 2014. Anadarko did not announce the building’s contractor or architect.

Update, 1:25 pm: Groundbreaking is expected in a few weeks, our source adds; workers are beginning to clear the lot this week.

His newest project, a 10-unit condominium building called Chateau Ten, is planned for near the corner of Kirby Drive and West Main close to a Carrabba's restaurant.

The building will have two units on each level and parking on the first floor. An elevator will take residents to their floors, and the doors will open into their units.

"It's like owning a residence without all of the things some people find bothersome in a high-rise," Davis said, referring to long hallways, having to park far away and common-area odors.

Each unit will be 3,000 square feet, and buyers can customize their interiors.

The building won't have a gym, swimming pool or other services typically associated with high-end residential buildings, so maintenance fees will be lower.

Residents will pay 15 cents per square foot per month, compared with as much as 65 cents per square foot in other buildings, Davis said.

Plans to build a second convention hotel in downtown Houston are moving ahead as organizers have begun an official search to locate a hotel developer.

The hotel, to be built just north of Discovery Green park near the George R. Brown Convention Center, is expected to have 1,000 rooms, making it one of the largest hotels in Texas.

The new hotel would join the Hilton Americas-Houston as an important part of the city's convention package. Officials say Houston has an inadequate number of downtown hotel rooms, so it is eliminated from consideration on the shopping list of the nation’s largest meetings and conventions...

The hotel project could also be accompanied by residential and retail development if the private developer chooses to add those elements to the project, Houston First said in a “request for qualifications” document...

The organization’s long term plan, stretching out to 2025, calls for four new hotels to be built around the George R. Brown.
Here's a masterplan for those convention center hotels:

Apartment buildings rise in Uptown
By Alan Jones
Published 03:36 p.m., Tuesday, April 3, 2012


Whiteco apartment tower

Residential development is showing a strong resurgence in the Uptown Houston District with multiple apartment buildings popping up, the district's president reported.

Towering above most of the new residential projects is the 22-story, 300-unit building by Whiteco Residential LLC being built near the northwest corner of Westheimer Road and Sage Street, John Breeding said Friday during a presentation to Galleria Chamber of Commerce members.

Other projects under way include Gables Post Oak, a mid-rise apartment community being built by Gables Residential at Post Oak Park and Post Oak Place, just inside Loop 610 near San Felipe Street. The apartment community is planned for 316 units.


Gables Post Oak Houston Chronicle

Apartment developer Dinerstein Cos. is building its third Millennium-branded project at 2525 McCue Road. The five-story, 237-unit apartment project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.


The Millennium 2525 McCue

Real estate developer Hines plans to construct a new apartment complex in Uptown immediately west of Waterwall Park. According to a district newsletter published in the fall, the Hines development is expected to be completed in 2014.

In addition, national multifamily development company Greystar is also constructing an apartment building in the area, said Breeding, whose district levies a property tax and focuses efforts on economic development.

The district reports that the residential property market has grown from a little more than 1,500 units in the 1960s to more than 3,000.

"I really think we'll begin to see a lot more very dense residential development in this market," Breeding said. "It doesn't generate quite as much traffic as an office does, but the combination of evolving land uses, improvements in mobility and public infrastructure will lead to long-term healthy growth in this area."

Residential buildings make up 30 percent of Uptown Houston's land use, compared with 34 percent for office space, 23 percent for retail space and 11 percent for the 31 hotels, which include more than 7,100 rooms.

------

Adding to office property will be a 380,000-square-foot office building under construction at 2200 Post Oak Blvd. BBVA Compass bank will be an anchor tenant in development, a joint project by Redstone Cos. and Stream Realty Partners LP.


BBVA Compass Bank Tower Houston Chronicle

The 20-story building is part of a development that is expected to include a second office building, a hotel with residences and parking garages. Redstone plans to develop a hotel with spa and fitness center similar to the Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. The hotel will include 150 to 250 rooms, Breeding said.


Skanska USA tower Urbika

Among additional office developments listed by the improvement district, Skanska USA Commercial Development is constructing a new 20-story office tower on 2.3 acres at 3009 Post Oak Blvd. near Hidalgo Street.

7-Story Southwest Freeway Audi Dealership Gets Go Ahead, Will Split Momentum



Expect to see workers moving dirt on the 1.5-acre site at the northeast corner of Greenbriar and 59 within the next few weeks; the city’s planning commission last week voted to approve a variance granting permission for a 7-story auto dealership building at 2120 Southwest Fwy. to poke a few feet further toward Greenbriar (at left in the above rendering) than regulations allow. The result: the country’s largest — and tallest — flagship Audi dealership, featuring a 2-story car display case on the corner of the third and fourth levels that’ll bring the latest models up to eye level for drivers on the raised freeway who aren’t looking where they’re going.

Univ. of St. Thomas's New Performing Arts Center Moving In Next To Menil Campus



Quote:
Here’s a view of the 4-story, 93,760-sq.-ft. performing arts center the University of St. Thomas plans to build on the northwest corner of its Montrose campus, on the full city block bounded by West Alabama, Yupon, Sul Ross, and Graustark. A feature article on the project in the university’s magazine describes the site provocatively as being “adjacent to the Menil Collection,” but it’s really catty-corner to the Menil block that contains the Rothko Chapel, a long block east of the Menil’s famed shielded-by-bungalows main building. In the drawing above you’re looking at the new UST center from high above the Rothko Chapel’s east lawn, toward the corner of Sul Ross and Yupon.

Unique Design on Proposed Inner Loop Tower



Quote:
Here’s an image of the high-rise planned for the site of the old Confederate House restaurant (and later the State Grille). Developer PM Realty Group says it hopes to break ground on the 39-story tower in the third quarter, but it first needs to hire a contractor and secure a construction loan. The RTKL-designed building is planned for the northeast corner of West Alabama and Weslayan. It will have 254 rental units.

1717 Bissonnet May Start By Year's End


Just one of several iterations of this controversial development

Quote:
Lawsuit settled

A lawsuit accusing a Houston architecture firm and the developer of 1717 Bissonnet - better known as the Ashby high-rise - of using designs that weren't theirs has been settled.

The suit was filed late last year by Dallas-based Humphreys & Partners Architects, which said the architectural plans for the proposed tower infringed on a copyrighted design.

Developer Buckhead Investment Partners and EDI Architecture raised numerous defenses in the case, according to a statement, including that Buckhead paid Humphreys for its early work on the project, and therefore had been granted the right to use it.

The parties released some of the settlement's details last week. Humphreys said Buckhead will pay it for a retroactive license and give the firm credit in marketing and other materials stating the conceptual design of the building was based on Humphreys' work.

Buckhead said the agreement states that there is no "admission of liability by any party concerning the matters settled" and that it settled to avoid the time and expense of litigation and to move forward on the project.

A federal judge in Houston dismissed the case on May 31, closing another chapter in the saga of the Ashby high-rise, a residential development that has sparked a heated battle between the developers and many neighborhood residents who don't want to see it built.

The developers said they are continuing to make progress on the building's planning and expect to break ground by year-end.

New office Tower For Memorial City Area



Quote:
A Houston developer is expected to break ground next month on a 14-story office tower near Memorial City Mall, after pre-leasing a little more than half the property to Murphy Exploration & Production Co.

The energy company, a part of El Dorado, Ark.-based Murphy Oil Corp., has signed a lease for 173,000 square feet in the building slated for 9805 Katy Freeway between Bunker Hill and Gessner.

Murphy, which will have naming rights to the building, plans to relocate in October 2013. It will move out of 145,000 square feet at the Offices at Park 10 at 16290 Katy Freeway.

The company had multiple options for new space in the area and farther west in and around the Energy Corridor, as developers have identified at least 15 sites where buildings are proposed.

Like other oil and gas companies, Murphy has been growing from increased activity in the Eagle Ford Shale and other areas.

"They have no more space in the building they're in," said John Burke of Jones Lang LaSalle's Houston office, which represented Murphy in its lease negotiations.

Not all of the new buildings will come to fruition, as many of the developers will be required to pre-lease a substantial amount of the proposed space.

"If the energy markets were not positive, you would not see this type of development," said Preston Young of Stream Realty Partners, which is planning a building with Wile Interests along the Katy Freeway at Greenhouse Road.

Houston Chronicle: High-rise kicks off major urban development

A long-delayed residential project near downtown, primarily targeting well-paid professionals with upscale apartments and condos and a cluster of retail, entertainment and offices, is finally under way.

More than five years after announcing plans for the 24-acre Regent Square project off Allen Parkway, GID Development Group has begun construction on the first building, a 21-story apartment tower called The Sovereign.

It represents an important milestone for GID, which had planned to break ground before the national economy went into a tailspin.

"We went through a tough cycle in the real estate market and the overall economy," said James Linsley, president of Boston-based GID.

The project was one of several that were shelved or canceled as demand for space dried up and lenders stopped financing major commercial real estate projects.

GID said it remains committed to Regent Square, which is to go up in multiple phases on land abutting Allen Parkway near Dunlavy and Dallas, on the site of the old Allen House Apartments. The development could take 10 years to complete.

Plans include about 400,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space; more than 1,500 residential units; and 250,000 square feet of office space in what the developer refers to as an "urban district" where residents can walk to everything. The walkable nature of the project extends beyond its borders, Linsley said, with a pedestrian trail around Buffalo Bayou and high-end shops and a new Whole Foods a short distance away.
