My only beef with developers in this city is that inside the loop they'll flatten huge tracts of perfectly decent apartment complexes which were affordable and then sit their asses on a ugly field of broken concrete and graffiti'd fences for the next 20 years. Put up renderings of the latest and greatest mixed use project which is obviously vaporware, then cancel, and then 5 years rinse and repeat.

Remember Regent Square? The area along Allen Parkway is so far away from being a corridor of high rises, its more like a graveyard of real estate failures.

400 Jensen Dr| EaDo

Quote:
In early 2020, Marquette will break ground on a 332-unit, mid-rise multi-family development in Houston’s East Downtown (EADO) district. Situated on 3.28 acres at 400 Jensen Drive, the development is located along Houston’s historic Buffalo Bayou, a 53-mile river running east through Houston to Galveston Bay and the Golf of Mexico. The building will feature a dedicated park and green space, with connectivity to over 3 miles of trails, 17 acres of parks, and a nearby kayak launch. The apartments will average 920 SF, including junior, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans with 5,000 SF of retail. Groundbreaking is scheduled for January 2020, and first units are anticipated in the summer of 2021.

Luxury midrise breaks ground near Buffalo Bayou Park
Nancy Sarnoff | on July 23, 2019



Wood Partners is starting construction on a seven-story apartment building near the corner of Allen Parkway and Shepherd, a high-end project that could be the first of a series of new developments in this area of town.

The Atlanta-based developer is building 364 units at 3636 W. Dallas St., the former home of the nonprofit Center for Hearing & Speech.

Anyone remember where the huge apartment fire was several years ago, somewhere on or near W. Dallas St.? I don't know whether the ones under construction were rebuilt or what. I guess I could research it but thought I'd first see if anyone here knows.

That site (where the apartments burned down before construction was complete) remains empty and is on W. Dallas but at Montrose, farther east.

This tract is where W. Dallas and Allen Parkway become their respective streets in River Oaks, Chilton and Kirby, just across Shepherd.

Marriott’s AC Hotel brand to make Houston debut

Quote:
he AC Hotel, a Marriott brand named for Spanish hotelier Antonio Catalan, is scheduled to open July 28.

The 10-story property at 723 Main, a restoration of the former Houston Bar Center building at Main and Rusk, will have 195 rooms with rates ranging from around $229 to $249 during the week and between $150 and $160 on weekends.

The hotel is housed in a 105-year-old building originally developed by Jesse Jones for Gulf Oil. Alfred C. Finn was the architect.

When Dallas-based developer Newcrest Image was considering redeveloping the building, it met with the Texas Historical Commission, which suggested the property be restored not to what it was in 1914, but to its 1966 remake. That year, architect Eugene Slater covered the original facade with a simple modern skin

Mixed-use development targeted for Fitzgerald’s site

Quote:
What once was an iconic venue for live music is now a lifeless slab of concrete. Heights residents and visitors used to walk up to the bar or the stage, but now they walk through the vacant, tree-lined property as a shortcut to another watering hole, a restaurant or maybe to return home.

Clues can be found on the website for Verde Communities, a real estate investment firm that develops and manages properties throughout the Houston area. A page dedicated to “Fitzgerald’s at White Oak” shows a video montage of the former building, recounts its history and outlines a plan for the future – a mixed-use development with a multi-story structure.

“We hope this will include retail and multi-family residential uses, and perhaps a street level or rooftop lounge which, perhaps in a modest way, is an homage to the history of the Fitzgerald’s site,” the website reads.

Plans emerge on redevelopment of former Exxon Mobil campus

Nancy Sarnoff | on July 29, 2019



New details have emerged on a proposed mixed-use development planned on nearly 17 acres inside the Loop.

The owner of the former Exxon Mobil Research Center at the southwest intersection of West Alabama and Buffalo Speedway is seeking a building variance from the city of Houston to develop the site into a complex of high-end offices, shops and apartments.

Details of the project, which is referred to in documents as River Oaks Green but has also been marketed as The RO, include a two-phased development with eight parcels. The property is situated between Greenway Plaza and the River Oaks neighborhood at 3120 Buffalo Speedway.
