Texas Medical Center reveals new details and renderings for its TMC3 campus


Quote:
The Texas Medical Center just announced the dream team of architects and designers that are making TMC3 into a reality.

Elkus Manfredi Architects, Transwestern, and Vaughn Construction are the three companies that will serve as the architectural and development team for the 37-acre research campus. TMC3's founding institutions — TMC, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas A&M University Health Science Center, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center — decided on the three entities.

"Texas Medical Center is eager to move forward with a bold, imaginative and dynamic new design vision for the TMC3 Master Plan," says TMC CEO and president, Bill McKeon, in a press release. "With the combined talents of Elkus Manfredi Architects, Transwestern, and Vaughn Construction on-board, I couldn't be more confident that this dream team will flawlessly execute the totality of the project's vision and fulfill its mission to bring together leading researchers and top-tiered expertise from the private sector to create the number one biotechnology and bioscience innovation center in the entire world."

TMC3 was first announced just over a year ago and is planned to open in 2022. The campus will incorporate research facilities, retail space, residential plans, a hotel and conference center, and green space. Parking will be underground to optimize surface area.

Bristol Cove

Quote:
BKV Group’s inaugural project with developer partner, Legacy Partners, positions a 16-story, residential building within Houston’s upscale Galleria District. Featuring 280 units spread across 11 floors, the exterior and interior components align with the District’s high-end, luxurious clientele, appealing both in size, scale, and available amenities, in addition to being closely located to downtown Houston and surrounded by bustling retail areas, office towers, hotels, and private health clubs.

One of the most intriguing aspects Legacy saw in partnering with BKV Group was the firm’s light gauge steel expertise. Light gauge allows interior walls to be prefabricated and shipped directly to the site, reducing the amount of material waste. Light gauge also provides the ability for building components to be erected on site, allowing floors to be constructed quicker. Combined with the panel walls being fabricated in Houston and exterior tiles being locally sourced, Bristol Cove’s construction process is anticipated to be highly sustainable, and will be one of the first light gauge steel projects completed in Texas, with more on the way.

Standing out amongst the surrounding buildings, Bristol Cove is ideally located next to a park shared with a neighboring condo tower. With Bristol Cove making a statement through its exterior panelization, the building provides a renewed sense of materiality by eschewing the traditional brick and stucco palette typically utilized in the region.

Set to be completed in early 2021, Bristol Cove provides terrific views to the city – particularly from the west – with units featuring floor-to-ceiling glass and open-air balconies, in addition to an area for a fully-functional outdoor space. An ample amount of amenities including a ride share lounge, car charging station, five levels of parking, dog wash, lap pool, and indoor spa and sauna round out Bristol Cove’s tenant program capable of resonating with Houston’s diverse set of demographics and tastes.

The Watermark Tanglewood

Quote:
The Watermark Tanglewood (1661 Tanglewood Blvd.)

Watermark Retirement Communities recently mailed a selective announcement to property owners in the area of a proposed 20 story, 62-year and older luxury community along with a marketing survey and invitation to a focus group study. The proposed site is owned by WMJK Ltd. The THA Board is still trying to gather information and understand if any alternative options might be available, such as potentially raising capital for private purchase of the property and converting it to a green space. It appears Watermark is currently in the due diligence and marketing phase for this development. Further communication will be forwarded as facts are obtained. Anyone interested in attending the Planning Seminar/Focus Group on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 may call the market survey company ProMatura at 800-201-1483.

Lennar affiliate LMC Westcreek Holdings acquired the parcel at the corner of Westcreek and San Felipe from Westcreek HTX Real Estate Partners. The purchase price was not disclosed, but the county appraised the parcel for about $9 million.

The site is across from the Arabella condominium tower and near other new high-rise condo and apartment buildings that have gone up since the adjacent River Oaks District was developed.

Really old. The spot labeled "River Oaks District" has long since been redeveloped and there are three high rises at various states of completion along the series of plots bordering the Target (lower left). Even BBVA Compass on Post Oak isn't there and that's about a 10 year old building.

It's sort of like in Austin where even local TV stations and ads in the newspaper will show 10 year old Austin skylines. And there's no resemblance to today's skyline.

Massive mixed-use development along Buffalo Bayou reveals plans for pivotal next phase

Quote:
A massive development located just steps from Buffalo Bayou has taken another step towards completion. Retail leasing has opened for the second phase of Regent Square, a new, mixed-use sprawling complex that will span 24 acres along W. Dallas Street — between historic College Memorial Park Cemetery and Waugh Drive.

A brainchild of GID Development Group, the district’s first phase, The Sovereign at Regent Square, is a 21-story residential tower that was completed in 2015. The second phase, located at W. Dallas and Dunlavy streets, will occupy approximately eight acres and feature a 600-unit multi-family project and 50,000 square feet of street level retail, according to a release. It promises to be a bustling gathering area for Inner Loop dwellers and guests.

The retail setting will circle a central plaza — designed by Houston-based OJB Landscape Architecture — encompassing two green spaces, a signature water feature, and a pedestrian promenade. Groundbreaking is anticipated in fall 2019.

Designed by CBT, an award-winning Boston-based architectural firm, Phase 2 was conceived as a “thoughtfully scaled and site-specific, three-dimensional piece of architecture” that will allow residents and visitors to relate to and engage with the curated and programmed urban environment, according to a statement.

“Our goal for Regent Square is the creation of an exemplary, urban mixed-use district in the heart of Houston,” said James Linsley, president of the GID Development Group, in a statement. “Phase 2, the core of the masterplan, is poised to establish the project as a dynamic, walkable place as it weaves high quality restaurants, retail and residential into the fabric of the surrounding neighborhoods.”
