Holocaust Museum Reopening After $34 Million Expansion

Quote:
The Houston Holocaust Museum is reopening Saturday at nearly double its previous size, following a $34 million expansion. The new building is almost 57,000 square feet, making it the fourth largest Holocaust museum in the country. Alongside an expanded facility, it has also expanded its mission.

Kelly Zúñiga, CEO of the Holocaust Museum Houston, told Houston Matters that while the Holocaust gallery is still a main part of the museum, they have also expanded their galleries to include a larger discussion of human rights and genocides throughout recent history.

Construction begins on Multifamily Residential Property in The Woodlands Town Center

Quote:
THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE:HHC) began construction today on a new, 179,338-square-foot luxury multifamily project, situated on 1.67 acres at the southeast intersection of Six Pines Drive and Timberloch Place in The Woodlands®. The project is adjacent to The Millennium Six Pines and The Millennium Waterway, both communities in the Howard Hughes portfolio.

This seven-story, multifamily building will provide the perfect urban living setting, located in The Woodlands Town Center® near The Woodlands Waterway®. The project will be comprised of 163 residences and offers one-, two- and three-bedroom plans as well as townhomes with direct street access. The average unit size is 1,100 square feet. Features in the new development include quartz countertops, simulated wood flooring, stainless appliances, walk-in closets, nine-foot-plus ceilings and washer and dryers in every home. All units will highlight home automation technology, which allows the tenant to control the door lock, thermostat and lights via smartphone or verbally through Amazon’s voice-controlled, Alexa.

This community is projected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2020. The project team consists of Shepley Bulfinch as the architect, and Hoar Construction as the construction manager.

$125M UTHealth psychiatric hospital breaks ground near Texas Medical Center

Quote:
The UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health — a joint project between the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission — broke ground near the Texas Medical Center on June 26.

The new facility is at 5601 W. Leland Anderson St., adjacent to the UTHealth Harris County Psychiatric Center. Both facilities will be managed and staffed by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth.

The $125 million project is expected to be complete in early 2022. It's the first public mental health hospital built in Houston in more than 30 years, and the combined campus is expected to create the largest academic psychiatric hospital in the country, according to a press release.


Houston Airport System to break ground on Spaceport project

Quote:
Phase 1 of the Houston Spaceport is slated to break ground on June 28.

The Houston Airport System will celebrate the groundbreaking of phase 1 — an $18.8 million project — with a ceremony at Ellington Airport at 13150 Space Center Blvd. The scope of the project’s first phase includes streets, water, wastewater, electrical power and distribution, fiber optics and communications facilities, according to a June 26 media advisory from HAS. The first phase will also include the construction of 53,000 square feet of lab and office space, according to the HAS website. Some 154 acres of land are set aside for phase 1.

Texas Sterling-Banicki JV LLC, a joint venture, is developing the infrastructure for the spaceport, according to a building permit filed with the city of Houston and previous Houston Business Journal reporting. JV partners Houston-based Texas Sterling Construction Co. and Phoenix-based Banicki Construction are both subsidiaries of The Woodlands-based Sterling Construction Company Inc. (Nasdaq: STRL). More than $13.1 million of the $18.8 million will cover TSB’s preconstruction and design services as well as construction services for the infrastructure work.

The first company to sign on as a spaceport tenant — Houston-based Intuitive Machines — is already underway on lunar lander and drone technology. On May 31, Intuitive Machines received a $77.2 million contract from NASA to develop, launch and land its Nova-C spacecraft on the lunar surface. The company is on track to be the first private U.S. firm to land a spacecraft on the moon during a planned 2021 mission.

Developers unveil plans for former post office in downtown Houston

Can we say, underwhelming?

Quote:
Developers at Houston-based Lovett Commercial have unveiled plans for how they plan to transform the former Barbara Jordan Post Office into a 550,000-square-foot multiuse development that's intended to become the downtown Houston area’s newest destination location.

During a June 27 groundbreaking ceremony, Kirby Liu, Lovett's director of development, said the finished renovations will affect nearly every aspect of the existing structure, which has stood largely vacant since Lovett purchased the property in 2015 except for hosting several Day for Night festivals.

Lovett plans to deliver the renovated building, which will be known as Post Houston, next summer.

Lovett’s plan for the property involves creating three distinct “districts” within the first floor of the building, which will be centered around cultural experiences, food and a coworking space.

Kirby Liu said the dining district in particular will be modeled on a Tokyo night market, where visitors will have a variety of food options to choose from before they move onto other areas in the building.

To offset those areas, the plan calls for three atriums to be cut through the building’s second floor and roof. Three distinct staircases will run through the atriums, which Kirby Liu said will aim to promote interactions among visitors as they move between floors.

“Yes, the goal is to provide access to each floor. But the real goal is to have these staircases act as social locations where people can meet as they move around,” Kirby Liu said.

The building’s roof will feature a nearly six-acre park with views of the downtown skyline, along with space for restaurants and vendors. The atriums will be covered by new-to-Houston ETFE roof systems, which are polymer-based structures that allow sunlight to come through.

The building’s second floor will be reserved for office space, Kirby Liu said.

In all, Post Houston will offer 130,000 square feet of office space, 60,000 square feet for retail, a 45,000-square-foot market hall and 20,000 feet of coworking space.

If this gets built, I will say what a wasted opportunity.

Houstonians will not use this kind of facility even if there were retailers to fill it. A really badly thought out concept, a 60's enclosed mall.

Mercado del Sol redux, unless they put highrises on all of those surface lots. Isn't there some catch with repurposing this building that it can't be torn down because of the way it was originally financed (Federally)? Yes it is close to the new and upcoming residential towers downtown, but it's not that close...would anybody in their right mind ever consider walking to the old post office from their office on Louisiana or Smith street? Nope.

Is this the same concept as the Bayou Center?

This is just under 1/2 a mile to the north of Bayou Place. It is across the Bayou beyond the aquarium, between the Amtrak station and Downtown UH (accessible to neither), at the now shuttered downtown Post Office. It is "theoretically" accessible by foot from downtown but...

I think there is a lot of grumbling about this on this site and HAIF because the potential of this site is amazing. But this ain't it. It actually will compete with downtown for bodies and unless they put the Battleship Texas, the London Eye, or a Saturn Five rocket on the roof, as suggested on another forum it won't work. Right now "going downtown" is actually -- can this word ever be uttered by a Houstonian with a straight face -- cool. People at restaurants, bars, people in Astros gear before and after games, people walking dogs, joggers, OMG a tourist!, etc. This is not "going downtown," it's going near downtown. I know the scales are not remotely comparable, but nobody goes to New York to visit Jersey City. If the area had it's own residential population, on the order of a few thousand apartments, it might escape the fate of Mercado del Sol which turned into a ghost mall.

I know where the Bayou Center and this ...crap... is located. My post is referring to similar concept not location.

Wow. What a disastrous waste of development. Why would anyone surround their development with surface parking unless their goal is to be an undesirable waste of space? Really hope this fails and someone with vision of what urbanity can be comes along to do better.
