Montrose parking garage designed to be 'future proofed'

Quote:
The parking garage at the Fairview District was designed with conversion options in mind.

The parking garage at the Fairview District, a mixed-use development underway in the Montrose area, will mirror most parking structures in that it'll take up around half the total space of the development it serves. It won't always be that way, though. The garage was "future proofed," Gensler's Peter Merwin said, and designed in such a way that can easily be converted into a multifamily development.

Instead of being designed with ascending and descending ramps, the Fairview District's roughly five-story parking garage will feature a single ramp on one side of the garage. The boxy structure of the garage itself will house five flat levels with ceiling heights between 10 feet and 15 feet. Should Houston's love of cars wane over the years, the ramp will be easily removable, Merwin said, and the concrete structure will easily facilitate a conversion. He designed the garage in a way that'll be easily convertible to an apartment development, though it could feasibly be converted to an office development, too.

^ Every city in America, take note: this is how all parking structures should be built moving forward.

Why would they block the flow of air with that greenery?

"BHP's new Uptown digs unfold in 30 employee-friendly floors"
Nancy Sarnoff, The Houston Chronicle, July 13, 2017

Quote:
At the new offices of BHP Billiton Petroleum, employee dining options include a cafeteria serving a variety of cuisines for $5 a plate; a coffee bar with French pastries and muffins; and a takeaway operation where workers can order a hot meal or freshly prepared salad from their computers to pick up moments later....The Houston-based oil and gas arm of BHP, a midsize oil and gas company owned by Australian mining conglomerate BHP Billiton Corp., recently moved into a 600,000-square-foot office tower with interior features seemingly inspired by Apple stores, art museums and the campuses of Silicon Valley tech giants.

Billiton is a good looking tower that really stands out in Uptown.

New info: Caydon Property Group is the developer, this will be their second project in Houston. Plans call for two mixed-use residential towers according to the updated FAA filing. Gensler is the architect.

Thousands of stories, if you talk to the people who work there.

Improved Market Conditions Spur Camden To Resume Work On 550-Unit Downtown Development

Quote:
Construction will begin in Q4 on Camden Downtown, Camden's 20-story, 550-unit residential tower near the Toyota Center, CEO Ric Campo announced on a quarterly earnings call. Leasing will start in Q4 2018. The project was originally scheduled to break ground in 2015 but was put on ice when the market softened. Now, with the pipeline emptying and construction costs lowering, Camden thinks the time is ripe. "Based on our view that there will be limited completions and competition from new developments in 2019 and 2020, we've decided to go forward with the construction of our Downtown Houston project," Campo said on the call. "Camden Downtown represents a countercyclical opportunity to lock in construction costs at a time when it's difficult for developers to get equity or construction financing."

Now early 2018 construction start.

Another downtown apartment project expected to start up

Quote:
Another stalled downtown apartment project could be moving forward in about six months.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Dallas-based Trammell Crow Residential received an extension on its agreement to build one of its project through the Downtown Living Initiative program. Now, the company is expected to begin construction at 800 Walker early next year, and it must have a temporary certificate of occupancy by May 28, 2020, to receive the incentive, per the Chronicle.

This unnamed project will be 40 stories and will be near Discovery Green. It was designed by Houston-based Ziegler Cooper Architects, per the Chronicle. As of 2015, when the Downtown Living Initiative reached its cap, plans for the project included 314 units, and construction was expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2017. As of March, that projection had been extended to the first quarter of 2019.

Is there any particular reason why Houston has a standard cap at 40 stories for residential high-rises? Dallas and Houston have recently went over that number but Houston seems to stop at 40.

The is no cap, but up to this point it's what market forces have dictated for the Houston market.

That will change when DT becomes a more residential hotbed but right now there's nothing wrong with that.
