Noble Energy Begins Second Phase of Houston Office Complex



Quote:
HOUSTON-Noble Energy Inc. is breaking ground on the second phase of its corporate campus today, according to a report in the Houston Business Journal.

Energy Center Two will be a 20-story 450,000-square-foot office building in Houston’s northwest submarket. The construction project is adjacent to Energy Center One a 497,000-square-foot office structure the company leased last year. The project will include renovations to the existing building, and construction of a sky bridge connecting the two structures.

Construction of the second building is expected to conclude in 2015.

More Residential coming into downtown.

Marquette Cos. planning "a couple of highrise's in downtown", totaling more than 350 unit's. The firm will also be selling bit's of land in Galveston to developers.

http://www.bisnow.com/commercial-rea...ave-in-common/

Quote:
Managing director Darren Sloniger tells us Downtown feels like Chicago (where he's based) did 20 years ago. (We just wish the city had a winning basketball team like Chicago did 20 years ago.) The City's new retail strategy, focus on parks, and residential incentive all point to a submarket about to take off. He's doing due diligence on a few sites, and tells us he'd like to develop a couple high-rise projects totaling about 350 units Downtown.


Quote:
And the firm is gearing up its 1,000-acre Preserve at West Beach project (site plan above). The development's first sale closes in a few weeks, 157 acres to Artist's Boat. The site will be preserved and used to teach kids about nature. Darren tells us the rest of the project will be sold in manageable bites to developers, including two beachfront tracts (one for single family and one for a hotel).

Mid Main project may be the future of urban Houston



Quote:
A transit-oriented residential and retail development called Mid Main will be going up in Midtown.

Located beside the Ensemble/HCC rail stop in Midtown, Mid Main will have 363 apartments, shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and a shared parking garage for 773 vehicles.

Construction is expected to begin early next year and be completed by late 2015, said Bob Schultz, managing partner of the project, which was featured in today’s Chronicle.

Gensler is the lead architect. Rogers Partners of New York and Will Cannady, a Rice University architecture professor and a Mid Main partner, are also on the design team.

Linbeck is the general contractor for the project and Lewis Property Co. will do the leasing. Construction is being financed by IBC. Transwestern will lease an office tower planned on a nearby block.

Just north of Mid Main will be the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston which will share the mixed-use development’s parking garage.

One of my neighbours wanted to add an extension to the side of his house. Took a year and a half to go through the City of L.A.'s planning department.

That really is something else. I work in construction project management and cost management consultancy. This is the reason why I am leaving California in 4 weeks time.
