That area along lower Westminster/ Elgin has totally transformed into a pretty urban dense area. The WF and that new apt tower will pretty much round out that intersection as far as new development.

After art controversy, soaring sculpture unveiled at George R. Brown Convention Center

Quote:
After a contentious history, the clouds have lifted over the George R. Brown Convention Center. Houston artist Ed Wilson’s Soaring In The Clouds, a 67-foot-high mobile of shiny metal clouds and cutout birds commissioned for the facility's atrium, was unveiled last week as part of Houston First's $175 million project to spruce up the area before Super Bowl LI early next year.

The large-scale sculpture was the center of controversy last year after the Houston Arts Alliance rescinded Wilson's commission to create the $830,000 project, alleging it had been awarded prematurely, amid documents that revealed that some members of the selection committee believed that Wilson did not have enough of a national reputation to receive the commission.

Director of civic art and design Matthew Lennon, who is a friend of Wilson, resigned in protest. The selection process was reopened and the project got back on track when Wilson was awarded the commission once again.

A REP FROM Citiscape tells Swamplot that the company will be starting up presales for 11 multi-million-dollar condo units in the 7-story midrise it’s planning for 2240 Mimosa Dr. The building would replace the 1965 apartment complex currently occupying the space (half a block east from the corner with Revere St. where that other condo midrise project got tangled in a protracted variance request fight last fall). Citiscape’s chief designer says the project is designed to eventually “fade into the landscape” with the help of some up-the-wall greenery on the facade. Ledges on each of the 6 residential floorsalso appears to support some over-the-edge greens.

Per the current plans, the top floor would be occupied by a single penthouse, while the 5 floors below it would be split into 2 units of 3 bedrooms each. The price tags on those start at just below $2 million for a 4,400 sq.-ft. unit on the 2nd floor; both numbers appear to rise with elevation up to the $2.65 million, 4,486-sq.-ft. units on the 6th story. Here’s one of the layouts currently on display on the trio of HAR listings for the midrise.

The ground floor will be mostly occupied by parking spots.

Building permits were released last month to Tellepsen for Phase II. Construction may kick off soon, over the summer Morris Architects mentioned they would be issued to the GC around this time (3Q/4Q).

More enhancements for the Allen Center Complex are in the planning stages. Brookfield Properties has trademarked "Allen Center Hotel" for the DoubleTree. It's said the building will be extensively renovated and pushed upscale to be a high-end boutique hotel. Brookfield doesn't own the DoubleTree property, but it is currently under contract.

Meh...

Hard to believe this was the best out there... Should have gotten some middle school kids to submit a design... would have busted the crap out of this.

Luxury condo project rising next to Lake Conroe

Quote:
A luxury condominium project is rising near Lake Conroe.

The five-story, 56-unit condo, called The Shoreline, is currently under construction, according to a press release. Prices start around $500,000 a unit at Montgomery-based Winkler Development's project.

The condo, located at 15300 Highway 105 West in Montgomery, will be situated within Waterpoint Marina, a complex with deep-water boat slips. It will also be near Waterpoint Shopping, a 90,000-square-foot mixed-use development with restaurants, retail and office space.

The future is looking bright for Houston condo projects, Jacob Sudhoff, CEO and founder of Sudhoff Cos., told the Houston Business Journal in a recent interview. Sudhoff said the market is demanding more projects. Several Houston developers have partnered with the Houston real estate company to build luxury midrise condo projects across the Bayou City.

Apartment developer to share plans for historic Heights waterworks

Said to be a new complex with retail; existing structures will undergo renovations.

Quote:
Apartment builder Alliance Residential will outline plans late this month for a proposed development of nearly four acres the company is buying in the Heights.

The properties, catty-corner lots along Nicholson at West 20th streets, are owned by the city of Houston and include one of the city's early pumping stations that provided water to residents of the Heights.

The historic waterworks includes a 1928 concrete and brick reservoir building recorded in the National Register of Historic Places; an Art Deco pumping station from 1939; and a pump building constructed in 1949.

"The preservation of the three historic structures ... is a top priority for Alliance," according to the flyer.

"The decommissioned water plant is a City of Houston protected landmark, which means it cannot be demolished; a certified rehabilitation of the historic structures could qualify for city preservation incentives with the approval of the Houston Archeological & Historical Commission and City Council.

UH closes on land for new Katy campus, larger development planned

Quote:
The University of Houston System has closed on the purchase of 46 acres for its new Katy campus, part of a larger mixed-use development.

Houston-based Parkside Capital sold the land, which is at the northeast corner of Interstate 10 and the Grand Parkway. UH’s 46 acres will be part of a 125-acre master-planned, mixed-use development, which the system and Parkside have rebranded as University Center.

Parkside plans to begin designing and building University Center’s infrastructure — including streets, utilities, lighting and landscaping — soon.

UH initially plans to build an 80,000-square-foot facility, which currently is in the design phase. Construction is expected to begin in August 2017, and the campus should open in fall 2019. The UHS University Park campus initially is expected to serve 2,000 students, but the system’s master plan includes 500,000 square feet of space, eventually accommodating 8,000 to 10,000 students.

Development plans from the presentation:

Quote:
- Tract 2 (NW corner of Nicholson & 20th) will be an 8-story, 275-unit apartment building (80% 1BR, rest 2BR)
- East half of Tract 1 (SE corner of Nicholson & 20th) will be a 63-unit "boutique" apartment bldg (90% 2BR, rest 3BR)
- Harres Exezidis (Cottonwood, Lagrange, Liberty Station) is a partner in the development for the restaurant spaces
- Each of the existing buildings (4000 sf reservoir, 1700 sf and 4000 sf pumping buidlings) will be restaurant spaces, with additional patio space, as well as space for food trucks.
- Up to 5000 s.f. will be community garden.
- They want to commission a sculpture made from the salvaged, excavated pipework.
- Planned construction start, late summer 2017, for 2019 completion. (Harres expressed a hope that the restaurant spaces would open earlier than that.)

Texas Medical Center to develop hotel at TMC3, rest of campus still in progress

Quote:
Dr. Robert Robbins, CEO of the Texas Medical Center, announced Dec. 1 the TMC plans to push forward on its planned hotel and convention center, but offered few details on the rest of the TMC3 campus at the annual State of the Texas Medical Center.

The hotel, expected to open in 2020, is the first piece of the puzzle for the planned TMC3 campus, a 30-acre district focused around life science and health care commercialization. According to a slide in the State of the TMC presentation, the hotel is estimated to be 350 rooms, but Robbins told the HBJ the exact size of the hotel and conference space could fluctuate depending on upcoming studies.

"I would really love to see it break ground in late 2017, but it may be early 2018," Robbins added.

Downtown DoubleTree hotel trades hands

Quote:
Brookfield Property Partners, longtime owner of downtown's Allen Center office complex, has added the adjacent DoubleTree hotel to its portfolio, bringing the properties under single ownership for the first time in decades.

Brookfield has long eyed the property at 400 Dallas, and when it went on the market earlier this year, the company pounced and was the high bidder. Terms of the sale, which closed this week, were not made public.

Brookfield will soon begin renovating and remaking the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Houston Downtown, much like the company is doing with Allen Center, where it is spending $48.5 million on an major redo.

Frazier said the company will begin working with architects next year to come up with new designs for the 350-room hotel, which is a Hilton brand. Changes to the food and beverage operations are planned as well.

The DoubleTree name may also go away, but it would be replaced by another Hilton brand.

"Our goal is to change the experience entirely," Frazier said.
