Move over Chicago, Houston has a bean now too



As nice as the sculpture is, I'm looking forward to seeing the plaza and how the rooftop garden extends down to it. Wanting to walk it already!

Wanted to provide a more comprehensive update of things taking place in town from HAIF. Think of this as an average weekend update on that site.

As a result the highrise/skyscraper progress will be featured in this thread. The Houston General Developments thread (which somehow hasn't been updated since 2015) will be updated with low-rise structures like apartments, university projects & museum expansions.

Though it was previously announced in 2016, the original FAA link isn't around. The height for 3300 Main remains '351 as of today.

That's a lot of parking for a tower of that size!

Props to St88 who has added a number of outstanding drawings to the Houston diagram including the recently completed Market Square Tower (complete with glass bottomed pool...look closely!) and the Marriot Marquis Hotel. New drawings for buildings from 1950s, 1920s, going back all the way to 1910 which have never been illustrated. Great job! Check out the updated diagram.

Houston's tech innovation district slated for former Sears building in Midtown

Quote:
Houston's long-awaited startup hub, which proponents say will help Houston's burgeoning tech scene compete on a national scale, is coming to fruition.

Private and public officials are closing in on a deal to develop the main campus of Houston's innovation district at 4201 Main St. — the site of the former Sears location in Midtown, sources close to the deal told to the Houston Business Journal. Rice University owns the land and will be involved in the innovation district's development, sources said.

Sears Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: SHLD) had a storefront at 4201 Main St. for 73 years before closing in January 2018. Rice Management bought out the remaining 28 years of Sears’ 99-year ground lease and acquired another 3 acres from Sears. The former Sears store property sits on 6 acres of land, and the parcel contains an additional 3.4 acres of land for development.

The campus will be built over the next two years and is expected to act as the heart of what will serve as Houston's innovation corridor. The innovation district is modeled after similar developments across the U.S. such as 1871, a digital startup incubator in Chicago.

I certainly hope this means they will use the Sears building.
