SAN ANTONIO | Frost Bank Headquarters | ~50 FLOORS

Big changes ahead in SA in 2016

Tue, Jan 05 2016, 12:48 AM EST
by Randy Beamer - News 4 San Antonio

And the new and improved San Pedro Creek will be right next to San Antonio's next skyscraper, the first in 25 years.

Weston-Urban's Frost Bank Tower is still in the design phase, but is expected to be about 50 stories of residential, retail and office space on West Houston Street.

I'm told demolition and preliminary work on the site could start by late this year.

Long overdue. For a city to grow as fast as San Antonio without adding to its skyline is something of a surprise.

Now it would be nice to see progress on rail transit.

Or did I miss any late-breaking developments ?

In the upcoming weeks, we should hear about two more projects in Plano:

Fannie Mae plans to build a 300,000 square feet office tower in Granite Park, and
JP Morgan Chase plans to build an office for 6,000 employees in Legacy West.

Furthermore, a 24-story, 389-unit apartment and hotel tower is proposed for West Village.

Exclusive: Cityplace, Forest City to develop new West Village hotel and apartment tower
Candace Carlisle
January 7, 2016



Quote:
The group plans to build a nine-story, 150-room hotel with a connected 24-story, 389-unit residential tower that would sit on one of the last remaining tracts between Cityplace Boulevard West and Blackburn Street in the West Village on 2.6 acres.
Quote:
The walkable aspect of West Village helped sell Hilton on the neighborhood to bring its newly created Canopy flag to the site, Alan Naul, founder of The Javelin Group.
Quote:
Master developer Cityplace Co. resisted the temptation to build a sky-high hotel looking south to downtown Dallas' skyline to cater to the boutique hotel and give the high-rise views to West Village residents.
Quote:
If all goes well, Sleeper said the team could select a general contractor by the end of the month. Construction on the tower could get underway in February.

Lightbulb HOUSTON | The Madison | FT | 27 FLOORS

Project: The Madison



Quote:
That allowed him to follow his home-creating passion and open Al Ross Luxury Homes, which develops custom spec mansions and now high-end luxury condo buildings such as The Monroe. An Al Ross high-rise could soon be rising in Houston, as well.

“We already have a 27-story building design,” Ross tells PaperCity. More importantly, Ross already has his sights on a specific site for the future high-rise — and the property’s available. “We want to be right in the center of town,” he says.

Looks like a poor illustration of the Messeturm in Frankfurt.

Some Growth Rates (Some Texan cities included):

* Point being, Texas has some of the highest growth rates. Even higher than Florida for most cities.

Quote:
In San Marcos, Texas, the population increased from 54,567 on July 1, 2013 to 58,893 on July 1, 2014—a climb of 4,325 or 7.9 percent.

Georgetown, Texas, had the second fastest rate of population growth (54,934 to 59,102, or 7.6 percent). That was followed by Doral, Florida (50,594 to 54,116, or 7.0 percent); Frisco, Texas (137,062 to 145,035, or 5.8 percent), South Jordan, Utah (59,379 to 62,781, or 5.7 percent); Conroe, Texas (62,591 to 65,871, or 5.2 percent); McKinney, Texas (149,168 to 156,767, or 5.1 percent), Milpitas, California (70,110 to 73,672, or 5.1 percent), Meridian, Idaho (83,515 to 87,743, or 5.1 percent); and Castle Rock, Colorado (53,152 to 55,747, or 4.9 percent).

When population growth is measured by the number of additional residents New York ranked No. 1 with a population growth of 52,700. That was followed by Houston, Texas, with population growth of 35,752; Los Angeles, California, with population growth of 30,924; Austin, Texas, with population growth of 25,667; San Antonio, Texas, with population growth of 24,931; Phoenix, Arizona, with population growth of 24,616; San Diego, California, with population growth of 21,225; Dallas, Texas, with population growth of 20,322; Fort Worth, Texas, with population growth of 18,183; and Charlotte, North Carolina, with population growth of 16,007.

Don't get too excited Dale. About a third of those cities are oil patch towns (including Houston) and with oil in the mid $30s a barrel, you can forget about rapid growth in any of those places.

Yeah, I get that. But it seems that the larger cities are such powerhouses that they more than compensate for the slower-growth areas.

I'd say the same is true for North Carolina in that regard. Charlotte and Raleigh are off the hooks. But there are towns here that are sucking wind.

Even with being heavily based on oil, there's a booming healthcare industry, petrochemical industry and upcoming boom for the aerospace industry -- thanks to spaceport and major increase in NASA's budget. It will always be an affordable place to live compared to other cities, therefore it will continue to grow rapidly. The city has made a lot of strides recently; getting better at riding the wave.

Texas is so diversified now that oil slipping will be little more than a hiccup in a lot of areas. Sure, Midland and some other mid-size cities could be greatly affected, and perhaps Houston more so than other major cities, but even Houston is branching out so much that it wouldn't be an end-game scenario. DFW, Austin, and San Antonio aren't overly dependent on oil at all.

It sure is. If you ever get to drive by that area you get an "aw" feeling that a whole city is being erected from the ground up. There are cranes in every direction. Getting off the freeway it seems that even smaller parcels have restaurants and retail stores already planned all along the roads and freeway. It's all taken.

Plans have been released for Commune + Ilume, a 25-story high-rise residential building.

Also, 1640 Edison appears to have gained two floors, placing it at 19 floors.
