Rice U. to break ground on new School of Social Sciences building this summer

Quote:
Rice University will break ground on the Patricia Lipoma Kraft ’87 and Jonathan A. Kraft Hall for Social Sciences, a new home for the School of Social Sciences, in August. The new building will be named for Patti and Jonathan Kraft, the lead donors for the project.

The new $38 million, four-story, 73,000-square-foot building is expected to be completed by November 2019 and open prior to the spring 2020 semester. It will include classrooms, seminar and conference rooms, undergraduate and graduate student lounges and a multipurpose space that can hold nearly 300 people for guest lectures and other events. It will be located on the former site of Intramural Field 6 at the corner of College Way and Alumni Drive, just south of Baker Hall and east of Tudor Fieldhouse, and will be the first structure on Rice’s new South Axis that will eventually extend from McNair Hall south to the corner of University Boulevard and Main Street.

The building will have an interior courtyard. The first floor will be open at the northeast end for entrance from the center of campus and at the southwest corner for an outside event and reception space. The building’s formal entrance will be at the west end of the courtyard. A large staircase will overlook the courtyard and act as an architectural feature.

The exterior of the building will have a curtain wall at the northeast end that features the St. Joe brick traditionally used in Rice’s architecture, along with windows on the south and west sides. Cast stone and marble will add more color and detail to the building exterior.

Multistory apartment project proposed for original Berryhill location along Westheimer

Quote:
A developer planning an eight-story apartment complex in Upper Kirby is asking the city to allow it to build closer to Westheimer than is normally allowed in order to give its project a more "urban feel."

There are multiple references to walkability in a variance request filed last week for "Stanmore River Oaks," a redevelopment of the Antique Pavilion strip center site on the south side of Westheimer between Revere and Westgate streets. The center is also home to Prism dry cleaners and the original Berryhill restaurant.

Houston developer Stanmore Partners and architecture firm W Partnership are involved in the project slated for the 2300 block of

Looks like this belongs in a suburban "Towne Center".

Hines and Ivanhoé Cambridge Announce Next-Generation Office Development in Downtown Houston

Site prep already underway. Parking meters were removed and the lot is closed off.

Quote:
(HOUSTON) – Hines, the international real estate firm, in partnership with Ivanhoé Cambridge, today announced the start of construction of a new, 47-story, one-million-square-foot office tower on the 800 block of Texas Avenue (the former site of the Houston Chronicle) bounded by Milam, Prairie and Travis streets. The building will not only become an architectural presence in Houston’s skyline, it will also offer a radical new approach to lobby and common-area design and activation. This, coupled with a market-leading suite of amenities, heralds a revolution in Hines’ approach to building design to support employee recruiting, retention, engagement and collaboration. The building will open in late 2021.

Leasing activity for the project is well underway with the signing of two anchor tenants. Vinson & Elkins, the largest and one of the oldest law firms in Houston, has signed a 16-year lease for 212,000 square feet. The prestigious firm will occupy the top seven floors. Hines will also relocate its global headquarters to the new building, signing a 15-year lease for approximately 155,000 square feet covering five floors.

“We are pleased to join Hines as the anchor tenants for this new world-class, state-of-the-art building,” said V&E Managing Partner Scott Wulfe. “This move presents a unique opportunity to host clients and will allow our teams to work in a space that fosters innovation, efficiency and teamwork. This next-generation building will also allow us to continue to attract and retain the best talent and to provide the highest level of client service.”

Hines President and CEO Jeff Hines said, “This tower promises to be a true ‘next-generation’ office building, drawing from the research and best practices we have learned from our office developments around the world. We are excited to not only be building it, but also to move our headquarters there. And, we are proud to once again partner with Ivanhoé Cambridge, with whom we have enjoyed a number of successful partnerships in cities such as Chicago, Toronto and Paris.”

Pelli Clarke Pelli is the design architect, and the project will be built to the highest standards that Hines has ever developed in Houston, including both LEED® Platinum and WELL Building certifications. Hines previously partnered with Pelli Clarke Pelli to develop signature buildings in Houston, Minneapolis, Boston, Chicago and Milan. The Pelli/Hines collaboration was responsible for the recently-opened, iconic Salesforce Tower in San Francisco.

The new Houston project will feature unprecedented amenities in the vertically integrated campus, including: a dramatic lobby with cues from the hospitality sector; multiple food and beverage offerings; abundant spaces for networking; a full-service conference facility; public gardens on level 12; and a high-performance fitness center.

Ten-foot, full-height windows will allow for an abundance of natural light across the 30,000-square-foot floor plates and a sophisticated underfloor HVAC system will put comfort choices in the hands of occupants. Protruding, cantilevered bays on each face of the floorplate project away from the building providing opportunities for dramatic internal stairs, atriums and communal spaces, as well as potential access to fresh air and outdoor green space.

The tower will be placed diagonally on the site resulting in unique, more interesting view angles and a powerful civic presence, punctuated by an elliptical “City Room” at the corner of Texas and Milam. The unique site is at the confluence of the CBD, the Theatre District and the Historic District—Houston’s ‘main and main’ location for a lively place to live, work and play. The building’s location—the most desirable in Downtown—leverages the myriad of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, as well as an exploding residential population.

Parking for more than 1,500 cars will be provided in an internal 11-level garage. Tenants and visitors will enjoy a variety of transportation options outside of its advantageous vehicular access, connectivity to Houston’s tunnel system and mass transit.

“The Tower was designed from the inside out,” said Fred Clarke, senior principal with Pelli Clarke Pelli. “We put ourselves in the mindset of future tenants to create a building that is an exciting, healthy and compelling place to work. And, given its unique placement at the northern end of the city, diagonally across from Jones Hall, the tower presents an opportunity to definitively frame Houston’s skyline while—at the street level—creating a lively, professional and civic environment. It is rare for an office building to help foster the public realm the way this building will.”

“We are very proud to partner again with Hines in a project that will set a new standard for downtown Houston and beyond,” said Daniel Fournier, Chairman and CEO at Ivanhoé Cambridge. “Hines has demonstrated over and over again why they are the best at what they do; this project promises to deliver even more.”

“This will be a game changer for office product as we know it in Houston and the state of Texas,” added Mark Cover, senior managing director and CEO of Hines’ Southwestern U.S. Region. “We set new standards in Houston when we developed 811 Main and 609 Main at Texas. We will again take those standards to an even higher level with a larger, activated lobby, expanded user experience and by fully realizing the direction in which tenants and their employees are going, by striving to meet the needs of the ever-changing workforce in ways the Texas market has never seen.”

The high rise residential project they’re building across the street from it is going to be pretty sexy too.

I wonder why Houston seems to build a lot more office towers than Dallas.

I like this a lot. I would have preferred a greenspace with a waterfall in the street-level area where that glass-enclosed cylinder is though.

Here is a rendering with both, c/o Realty News Report. Not sure if the residential tower design is final or a placeholder though...

Weingarten’s new high-rise at River Oaks Shopping Center underway

Quote:
Houston-based Weingarten Realty Investors (NYSE: WRI) started demolition work in early July to clear the way for its 30-story, 318-unit luxury high-rise that will tower above its River Oaks Shopping Center off West Gray.

The Driscoll, set to deliver by 2021, is the publicly traded company’s first foray into Houston’s residential market in 15 years. The company has owned the roughly one-acre high-end retail destination since 1971.

Houston-based Hanover Co., the developer and contractor for the project, filed a $26 million building permit with the city of Houston but total construction costs weren't disclosed. The luxury high-rise will sit atop 10,000 square feet of retail, which will be a mix of “high-end restaurants and additional specialty retail that will complement the existing tenant mix at River Oaks Shopping Center,” said Gerald Crump, a senior vice president with Weingarten, in an email.

In 2017, Drew Alexander, Weingarten’s president and CEO, told the Houston Business Journal this likely won’t be the company’s last high-rise development in Houston. Crump said there aren’t any definite plans to add residential towers at this time, but the company “continues to seek opportunities” that can add value.

El Tiempo’s longtime Montrose restaurant to close, make way for apartments

Quote:
The last day of service at El Tiempo 1308 Cantina will be July 31, according to a press release.

The longtime Montrose restaurant has been operating on a month-to-month lease since a new owner bought the property four years ago. Now, the landlord has decided to move forward with long-delayed plans to build its midrise apartment project, El Tiempo owner Roland Laurenzo said in the release.

Sunrise Luxury Living’s website now says that Sunrise Montrose was supposed to start construction in the second quarter of 2018 and be complete in the fourth quarter of 2019. The Class A project will be eight stories, with three levels of parking on grade and five levels of apartments on top, per the website. It will have 224 units totaling approximately 203,257 square feet of net rentable area, with efficiency, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments plus townhome-style units on the mezzanine level. The project will feature two courtyards and an outdoor swimming pool on the fourth level with an adjacent cyber café and residents room, a leasing conference room, private offices for residents' use, a fitness center on the street level and a rooftop terrace, per the website.

Fein to develop Galleria-area apartments on Post Oak Park

Quote:
Fein has purchased 3.4 acres at the northeast corner of Post Oak Park Drive and River Hollow Lane for its next inner-Loop apartment project.

The Houston-based developer will soon break ground on Reverie at River Hollow, a five- and six-story midrise that will bring 304 units to the Galleria/Memorial Park area at the end of 2020. Steinberg Dickey Collaborative designed the building, which will contain units ranging from studios to three-bedrooms.

“We really like the location,” said Fein’s vice president of development Daniel Fein. “We think it’s close to the best of what Houston has to offer. Uptown Park is directly across 610 from our site.”

The site is walkable to Uptown Park, which is undergoing a redevelopment and has more than 40 shops and restaurants including Starbucks, Etoile Cuisine et Bar and the Tasting Room. It’s close to the northernmost stop for The Boulevard, a dedicated bus-lane project that will extend through the Galleria area along Post Oak Boulevard southward to Richmond Avenue.

What is currently on block 48, what is being built right now on block 58, and what is that residential tower that was included in the block 48 rendering? Also, what is the status with the nice parking lot that is located where the Chronicle once stood?

Wattleigh was meaning to say Block 58 Tower, the same site where the parking lot was paved after demoing the Houston Chronicle building. Pic I posted above shows it being barricaded off for construction. The residential high-rise will take over the HC's garage, bounded by Preston/Milam/Prairie on block 42.

Our first look at the overall shape for Block 42 residential high-rise. A glass curtain wall will face Milam and Preston.
