We are going to see a lot of their work in Houston since they are also doing the Memorial Park project. Truly international and major, major projects.

Samji said a construction timetable and budget would not be finalized until Moussavi’s designs are complete. He expects the entire project will take several years.

I have no dog in this fight but this is simply not true.

It was my understanding Houston has stricter zoning laws now; is this not the case?

15-story office building breaks ground near River Oaks District

Quote:

Stonelake Captial Partners broke ground on its 15-story office building inside the Loop near the River Oaks District on Feb. 13, according to a press release.

The project, dubbed Park Place Tower and first announced in September, will be a 210,000-square-foot building at 4200 Westheimer Road within the Park Place River Oaks development, per the release.

The office building is Stonelake’s third phase at Park Place. Park Place Tower will include a landscaped terrace on the ninth floor available to all tenants and will be surrounded by a 1-acre park in the center of the area, the press release reads.

It was designed by Dallas-based Beck Architecture and is being constructed by Harvey Builders as the general contractor. Park Place Tower will be available for occupancy in spring 2020 and is currently in negotiations with three tenants, according to the release. The tower will contain retail on the first floor.

Astroworld got really trashy towards the end. Probably one of the reasons 6 Flags shut it down.

Unless a site has deed restrictions (such as in a master planned community) it is as described above. You are free to develop your property to its highest and best use as long as it meets permitting code.

It's hands were also tied as far as expanding. It was one of the few Six Flags that was within the city limits. It was right on the loop.

so what is the status of the numerous proposals for that plot of land?

Developer planning east downtown residential, restaurant project off Navigation

Quote:

A nearly 2-acre plot of land where an old elementary school once stood could soon be the site of a new eight-story apartment building with a floor of retail below.

Illinois-based Marquette Cos. is under contract on the tract near the corner of Navigation Boulevard and Canal Street, east of the Houston Maritime Museum, said Darren Sloniger, president and CIO.

Marquette is asking the city planning commission for reduced building lines on both Canal and Navigation to “create a more interesting pedestrian experience,” the Feb. 14 agenda stated.

Sloniger plans to break ground within the next six to eight months, pending city approval. He anticipates an 18-month construction timeline. Marquette’s Catalyst project downtown near Minute Maid Park officially opened in April.

Sloniger said the company wanted to develop on Navigation Boulevard for some time.

“I think with its proximity to downtown, it’s a really attractive place for people to live,” Sloniger said. “Navigation Boulevard is a very romantic, walkable neighborhood. We really love the area.”

Along with 293 apartment units, the project will likely have an anchor restaurant and a sidewalk cafe on the ground floor from local restaurateurs, Sloniger said. Average unit size will be about 890 square feet, with mostly one-bedroom options along with some two-bedroom floorplans. Interiors will feature a lot of wood, and plumbing fixtures will be matte black. Exteriors will have more of a rusted panel look.

“It’ll be unique to Houston,” Sloniger said of the project. He compared the look to its Fulton Station development in downtown Chicago that has an urban yet vintage aesthetic.

Marquette selected Chicago-based Brininstool + Lynch as its design firm but has not yet selected a contractor. Sloniger said the company is still finalizing a construction loan.

I drive through this area every day. I really hope they make the design more... snazzy.
