The park is the culmination of the dreams of many Houstonians for a major urban park that is being realized as a result of the leadership of Mayor Bill White and some of Houston’s most committed and generous citizens.

Dome hotel plan includes 610 exit
Texans officials have 'aesthetic concerns' about a proposed ramp
By BILL MURPHY
Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle
A $450 million plan to reinvent the Reliant Astrodome as a luxury convention hotel includes a parking garage and new exit from Loop 610 to keep the facility from interfering with Texans games and performances of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
The 2,100-space, multistory parking garage would wrap around two-thirds of the Astrodome and markedly change the appearance of the facility once dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World.
Astrodome Redevelopment Corp., a consortium proposing the development, favors building a ramp from the Loop 610 feeder road to the Dome.
But Texans officials so far have balked at the proposed ramp, saying they have "aesthetic concerns" about its effect on the appearance of Reliant Park, county-hired consultants said in a report.
"I really believe we will be able to resolve all these issues," said Scott Hanson, president of Astrodome Redevelopment.
A ramp would cost $5 million to $10 million, while the alternate proposal, a tunnel from the Loop feeder road, likely would cost $10 million to $15 million, Hanson said.
Astrodome Redevelopment proposes to build a 1,200-room, upscale hotel, restaurants, nightclubs, retail stores and possibly performance stages. The tentative theme is Best of Texas, re-creating Texas courthouses and town squares.
Astrodome Redevelopment has little choice but to address the concerns of the Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Their contracts with Harris County, which owns Reliant Park, allow them to demand that the Astrodome cease operations when rodeo season arrives or when the Texans play at home.
The rodeo will look to receive a percentage of revenues from at least some convention hotel operations, including the hotel, restaurants and many, if not all, retail stores, said Leroy Shafer, the rodeo's chief operating officer. "It is my assumption that since we have the ability to keep them in the dark, that this will happen," he said.
Such an arrangement isn't unprecedented for Reliant Park tenants. For example, the rodeo now gets a percentage of revenues from Aramark, which holds the concession contract at Reliant Park.
The Harris County Sports & Convention Corp., the county entity that oversees Reliant Park, and Astrodome Redevelopment are expected Wednesday to sign an agreement, called a letter of intent, that spells out each side's willingness to move forward with the project.
It is expected to say that the county is giving Astrodome Redevelopment six months to obtain financing and seven months to reach pacts on issues including parking, the hotel's ramp or tunnel entrance and profit-sharing.
Astrodome Redevelopment needs the letter to obtain financing. It will be given a year from the time the letter of intent is signed to reach a lease agreement with the Sports and Convention Corp.
The letter of intent "will be a major, major milestone," said Willie Loston, director of the Sports & Convention Corp.
There are 8,500 parking spaces at Reliant Park and an additional 17,500 across Kirby and in other county-owned lots. The Texans and the Houston Rodeo opposed sacrificing any parking to the hotel, so Astrodome Redevelopment added the parking garage to its concept.
The letter of intent says Astrodome Redevelopment would lease the Dome from the county for 50 years with an option to extend it another 20 years.
Astrodome Redevelopment would pay $2.5 million in rent the first year the hotel opens. Rent would rise 3 percent annually. The company also would pay the Sports & Convention Corp. 2 percent to 3 percent of its gross revenues.
The hotel would be modeled on Gaylord convention hotels in Grapevine, Nashville, Tenn., and Orlando, Fla. Senate Hospitality, a Nashville-based company that includes former Gaylord executives, would operate the Dome hotel. Gaylord hotels cater to groups that want hotels, restaurants, meeting rooms and convention halls under one roof.
Houston already has a convention hotel, the city-owned Hilton Americas next to the George R. Brown Convention Center. Unlike the Hilton Americas, the Dome hotel would imitate the Gaylord concept and try to attract groups looking for a self-contained facility.
"Prior to seeing the Gaylord Texan (in Grapevine), I thought it was a dumb idea," Shafer said. "After we visited the Gaylord Texan, we began to see it is a different model. But personally, I still have concerns that it will work."

Not all trees will be lost. Though, I love the forests there, they would have been gone sooner or later. At least they will keep tree canopy, and work around most trees.

Cáceres-122 units to be built in Rice Military, A Gated Urban Subdivision
Another gated complex inside the Loop?
Gated, walled, and security accessed private drives are SUCK. They kill neighborly interaction. They breed anonymity. They do NOT belong in central city neighborhoods.
Oh well, I guess the people who live there will "feel" safer and then the developers can squeeze a few extra bucks out of them.
After the success of their Vistas at Midtown and Piedmont at River Oaks, the Montreal based developers are moving on to their next project; the Serento near the Medical Center. Units are now for sale.
Get rid of that parking lot!
Announced tenants so far are Macy's, Dillards, and Barnes and Noble. Other's will be announced soon, and this development will likely have many stores the Galleria has.

$70M Condo Project Grows in Scope, Size
PASADENA, TX-When luxury condo project Endeavour Parkside came to the drawing board last spring, it was envisioned as a 20-story, 129-unit project with a $35-million price tag. Three months later, it's a $70-million design with 34 stories and 146 units due to the success of its neighbor, Endeavour Clear Lake.
"Projects evolve as they go along," says Robin Parsley, president of Endeavour Holdings Inc. in Austin. "We were originally trying to keep this at 20 stories, and the next thing we knew, we were at 29 stories, than 30, than 34."
Parsley tells GlobeSt.com that demand for larger units and more of them helped to spur the increase. "We didn't necessarily increase the number of units that much. We're up to 146 units from 129," he says. "But we increased the size." The unit sizes for the project at 4949 NASA Rd. 1 go from 900 sf to 3,000 sf. Prices range from $300,000 to $3 million.
The developer has a 30-story, 80-unit project under construction in Clear Lake, which broke ground in April. Penthouses, especially, are in demand with both projects, Parsley continues. "People are interested in large penthouses," he says. "We're totally out of penthouses at Endeavour Clear Lake so we're delivering more of them with Parkside."
Endeavour Parkside, which will be on the site of what is now Parkside Marina, will break ground in early 2007. It has a 14-month construction schedule. Parsley says the marina building will be torn down within 30 days.
InSite Architecture Inc. of Cypress, TX designed the Parkside project. N Sky Construction, part of Endeavour Holdings, is the general contractor. Endeavour is handling sales in house.
Once Endeavour Parkside is completed, the company's next goal is development of a six-acre parcel in nearby Seabrook. "I think that's the best site on the lake, and we're looking at more of a mixed-use development on this," Parsley says. Though the actual development is several years off and plans far from finalized, it could include a high-density residential component along with retail, restaurant and office space.
