If medical, quite a change for the area being the largest tower or a signature tower for the medical complex.
I can see a hospital or medical office building going up here as it's becoming harder to find sites to develop in the center of the Texas Medical Center, but it's likely the entire project will be mixed-use. In 2014 the developer mentioned hotel and residential is being considered for the site but could be developed into multiple uses.

New Addition to Directory:

Just had some tea, and an idea clicked. I think it would be a good idea to add a GIS (Geographical Information System) to the first post to cover sections of the state or cities.

Things that include parcel data, taxes, crime, road networks, schools, and so on. Usually what you would find on a GIS system database. The types that are available to use on a browser. Some of the links or sources also have actual .MDX files, but they are all available online through the browser without using ArcGIS. Although the program is good, and if you don't want to buy it, well, there are ways. Ultimately up to you how you obtain it.

Found at the bottom, right below "project sets" which are links to posts that have lots of info such as how many projects are u/c or proposed and so on along with the accompany user credit. In red, because for their work, they need recognition.

Remember to bookmark this link: http://skyscraperpage.com/forum/show...81&postcount=1

For easy access to all your Texas related prooject threads.

On the GIS section, just an example:

I added a number because there are possibly much better resources as I discover them or if any are brought to the forums attention.

This is already added on the directory or 1st post, and if you guys know any more GIS references or databases, feel free to share. I will look for some more and update it, because along with project info and a compilation, I also want the scope, like any other directory and compilation, to include useful map info.

I'll also add a credit section because I am very appreciative of all the support from various contributors here. Even if its just one project, thats good for me and its the effort that counts. Thanks once again to everyone!

- Chris E

Corresponding with the GIS section, a development GIS for Austin.

GIS style Map: http://www.austintexas.gov/GIS/devel...ap/Viewer.aspx

Will also be found in the directory.

Features Layers for:

1) Grid
2) Elevation
3) Contours
4) Land Resource, flood plain, parcel info, development resources
5) Zoning, parks, and so on...

Note:

1) Has some issues on Chrome, even with silverlight installed.
2) Works best on Internet Explorer

Better to use IE really. MS is lame and so, they make things not work on Chrome because they are greedy a-holes, like Adobe and their cloud subscription nonsense.

Another luxury high-rise hotel is planned for Plano's Legacy West.

Here's the article:

$2 billion Legacy West project grows with land purchase and new development
Steve Brown
February 25, 2016



Quote:
Fehmi Karahan – one of the original partners in the West Plano mixed-use project – said he’s purchasing about 9 acres on Legacy Drive in front of J.C. Penney’s corporate offices.
Quote:
The vacant land will be used for a bank building and a hotel, he said.

As part of the deal to lure JPMorgan Chase’s regional office campus to Legacy West, Karahan said he worked with the banking and financial giant to secure a prime retail bank building location. The planned Chase building will be at the northwest corner of Legacy and Communications Parkway on the land Karahan is buying.

“It’s going to look very special – not your typical bank,” he said.

Karahan said the rest of the 9-acre tract will be used for a luxury, high-rise hotel. He’s talking to hotel firms and hopes to have a deal lined up soon.

SAN ANTONIO | Cambria Hotel | FT | 18 Floors

Project: Cambria Hotel



Quote:
Another boutique hotel is slated for the downtown San Antonio site at the corner of East Commerce and North Main.

The hotel development and property management company has closed on a 0.4-acre site north of the Cathedral of San Fernando and a block southwest to the future Frost tower. REM is moving quickly with plans for a new Choice Hotels International (NYSE:CHH) boutique hotel concept that will also include roughly 30,000 square feet of office and 8,000 square feet of retail space.

Choice Hotels International recently opened a Cambria location in New York. REM Hospitality will be developing the first in San Antonio.

With an estimated 180 rooms, the Mayse + Associates-designed development is expected to break ground July 1. Following an 18-month construction period, REM is anticipating a delivery sometime in the fourth quarter of 2017.

AUSTIN | 4th & River | FT | FLOORS

Project: 4th & River



Quote:
Last week, Manchester Texas Financial Group outlined a proposal to the City of Austin Historic Landmark Commission to relocate three old, but not landmarked, buildings. The houses would be relocated directly across 3rd street, landing on a wedge of land that already shared by the Trask house and Castlemen Bull house (which was also moved to its current location).

Below are the conceptual renderings presented to the HLC. This design is not confirmed, and the status of the project seems dependent upon the HLC’s guidance.

Apartment high-rise eyed for high-profile Uptown property
Steve Brown
March 15, 2016



Quote:
Owners of a high-profile Uptown corner are seeking approvals to build an apartment tower.

The residential high-rise would sit behind a row of one-story retail buildings at the corner of Cedar Springs Road and Fairmount Street.

Property owner Greenway Investment 22-story, 320-unit apartment tower and a parking garage on what is now a parking lot at Howell and Routh streets.

The existing retail buildings and an office building on the block that’s home to Good Fulton & Farrell Architects would remain, according to filings with the City of Dallas.

Good Fulton & Farrell has designed the apartment tower.

The proposed building is just one of about a dozen new high-rise rental communities in the works in downtown and Uptown Dallas.
Quote:
A second phase of the development could add more than 460,000 square feet of office and retail space.

I added "population explorer" which is a gis/map tool to find out populations and do measurements. Might be neat to use for certain Texas cities. Added to the GIS section in first post. Thanks to yuriandrade for the find.

Just some data: March 24, 2016
===========

Chart: http://www.census.gov/content/dam/Ce...43_graphic.jpg

Quote:
MARCH 24, 2016 — Four Texas metro areas together added more people last year than any state in the country except for Texas as a whole, according to new U.S. Census Bureau population estimates released today. The population in these four metro areas increased by more than 400,000 people from July 1, 2014, to July 1, 2015.

The Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land and Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metro areas added about 159,000 and 145,000 residents, respectively — the largest gains of any metro areas in the nation. Two additional Texas metro areas adjacent to each other — Austin-Round Rock and San Antonio-New Braunfels — were each also among the 16 nationwide to gain 50,000 or more people over the period.

These four Texas metro areas collectively added about 412,000 people. Texas as a whole gained about 490,000.

The statistics released today provide population estimates for our nation’s 381 metropolitan statistical areas, 536 micropolitan statistical areas and 3,142 counties.

Eight counties drove Texas’ metro area growth and were among the 20 counties nationwide that gained the most population between 2014 and 2015. Altogether, they added 306,736 people:

The Dallas metro area contained four of these counties: Tarrant, Dallas, Collin and Denton.

The Houston metro area contained two: Harris, which led the nation by gaining more than 90,000 people, and Fort Bend.

Bexar, in the San Antonio metro area.

Travis, in the Austin metro area.

High-rise hotel on the way near Galleria in Dallas’ redeveloping Midtown district
Steve Brown
April 4, 2014



Quote:
A second major project is in the works in Dallas Midtown redevelopment district along LBJ Freeway.

Developers are preparing plans for a new Marriott Hotel that would be built just east of the Dallas Galleria shopping mall.

The planned high-rise hotel is on part of the former Showcase Chevrolet property at Noel Road and LBJ, according to filings with Dallas’ planning and zoning department.
Quote:
Carrollton-based Atlantic Hotels Group and Civitas Capital want to build the 256-room hotel on 3.6 acres.

Dallas-based architect 5G Studio Collaborative designed the project which includes a parking garage and large open courtyard.

City planners have taken issue with pedestrian access and the parking requirements for the development.

The proposed hotel tower is in an area surrounded by high-rise construction.

The Midtown district stretching from the Galleria to Valley View Mall has been earmarked for billions of dollars in mixed-use redevelopment.

Today's second ~300 room hotel proposal:

15-story Hyatt Regency hotel connected to Stonebriar Centre mall proposed in Frisco
Valerie Wigglesworth
April 4, 2016



Quote:
A proposal is in the works to build a Hyatt Regency hotel that connects to the mall. The hotel, which would be a minimum of 15 stories and 295 rooms, would also include a city-owned conference center and a small space for the city’s public library.

The hotel is being proposed by the Dallas-based Sam Moon Group, which owns the Sam Moon Trading Co. and has recently branched into the hotel business. SMG has formed Moon Stonebriar Hotel Ltd. to acquire a portion of land from General Growth Properties for the hotel project.
Quote:
The project is proposed to be built on the mall’s northwest side between Dillard’s and Nordstrom.
Quote:
The proposal also calls for 3,000 square feet on the hotel’s first floor to be available for a library that would connect to the mall. The space would be leased by the city for $1 a year for 20 years.
Quote:
Frisco has 13 hotels now and three more under construction. Several others are in the planning stages.

“We’re figuring that probably in the next two years, we will at least double our hotel inventory,” Roe said.

HOUSTON | Galleria Hotel & Condos | FT | 30 FLOORS

Project: Galleria Hotel & Condos



Quote:
The proposed tower 30-story tower, with 225 hotel units and 75 to 100 condominiums, would be the culmination of an ongoing redevelopment program at the 46-year-old shopping mecca, David Contis, president of Indiana-based owner Simon Malls, said Wednesday. It follows a series of multimillion-dollar investments that has revamped the luxury end of the mall and added a new stand-alone structure for high-end dining and retail dubbed "the jewel box."
