I hope the restaurant reopens. I would hate to see them close.

The owner wants to retire. The restaurant might reopen, but a new generation will run it.

Judging by the OP rendering, that area could use a lot more of these size of buildings. Good to see a start nonetheless.

That's actually a pretty nice building. Given the architectural disappointments Houston has seen (the Alessandra, for one) let's hope this survives.

Speaking of office buildings.

Midtown, the thriving urban neighborhood just south of downtown, could see a sleek new office tower rise from a parcel of land that for years housed a Vietnamese restaurant and is now near the center of a growing real estate boom.

Houston-based Senterra Real Estate Group is planning a 16-story office tower at 3003 Louisiana. The company says it would be the first new office tower to be built in Midtown in nearly five decades.

Construction, however, won't start on the building until about half of it is spoken for by future tenants.

The Gensler architecture firm has designed a building for Senterra's site with 250,000 square feet of office space in nine floors above seven levels of parking. The structure will allow for six corner offices. Terraces will face Anita, Louisiana and Milam on the building's eighth and 16th floors.

The building could be completed by the end of 2017.

Cancelled

Developer cancels tower amid slowdown

Quote:
A development firm that had plans to build a gleaming office tower on a prime site in Midtown has shifted gears. It's now considering other options, like leasing the property to a restaurateur or retailer, or perhaps developing condos there.

For now, the company is planning to weigh its options.

"We're open to all disciplines so long as it makes sense and it's financially viable, including developing the site ourselves," Tofsky said.
