Marathon Oil Plans Westward Migration to CityCentre’s Flattened Town & Country Outskirts

Quote:
IMAGES ARE LEAKING of the new tower Marathon Oil wants to build on a patch of recently-vacated land between CityCentre and the Katy Fwy. In an email sent out to employees on Tuesday, company CEO Lee Tillman set a tentative move-in date of 2021 for the imaginary building and wrote that its planned location was a plus partly because it’s closer to where the average Marathon employee lives, out in “west Houston and along the I-10 corridor.” The new whereabouts are just under 6 miles away from Marathon’s current ones in the eponymous Marathon Oil Tower at 5555 San Felipe, near the Galleria.

Disgusting. Tillman is a fool if he thinks his people would want to travel there...

Clearly not.... or maybe you haven't tried driving through the Galleria area. I wish they would move downtown, but they are doing what's in their best interests and moving towards the Energy Corridor.

Frankly, a lot of the iconic Houston towers are old and needing renovation.

I drive through both on a daily basis... traffic in the so-called "energy corridor" is worse than in the galleria area... horrendous.

Not according to https://mobility.tamu.edu/texas-most...sted-roadways/

I10/610/59 by the Galleria is the worst in the state.

Investor considers building condo tower on apartment property along Memorial

By Fauzeya Rahman – Reporter, Houston Business Journal
Dec 7, 2018, 1:19pm CST

Next year, Houston-based Nitya Capital could have two separate multimillion-dollar developments under construction, one off Washington Avenue and the other near Memorial and Shepherd drives.

The first project, a 19-townhome project called Arya Heights near the corner of Washington and Studemont Street, will likely break ground within the first quarter of 2019, Swapnil Agarwal, founder, CEO and managing partner of Nitya Capital and sister company Karya Property Management, told the Houston Business Journal.

The second, a tower condo slated for a portion of land on the 15-acre Bayou Park Apartments property off Memorial and Shepherd, could break ground by the end of next year if plans and permits get sorted out by then. Nitya Capital closed on the almost 700-unit Bayou Park Apartments in late November, Agarwal said. It was the company’s biggest single purchase to date. Although Agarwal wouldn’t disclose purchase price, the property was appraised at $57.8 million in 2018, according to the Harris County Appraisal District.

Agarwal plans to keep the existing apartments and develop the tower condo on open space, he said. He gave a rough estimate of $250 million for the project.

Eventually, future phases could include high-end retail or a grocery store as part of a larger redevelopment of the entire 15-acre site, Agarwal said.

It's interesting how tearing down the Bayou Park apartments would likely halve the number of units available in that location. Also what kind of grocery store and retail are they going to build there? A Kroger, HEB, and Whole Foods are nearby already and those are the only chains there are now. Strip malls are dying out these days- are people in the area going to support amazing trendy new places like a jimmy johns, a seasonal tax preparer, maybe a nail salon? Randalls is slowly going away and Fiesta isn't going to fit in at that location. My prediction- they build a tower and tear down the apartments, then the business cycle goes in a downward direction and 10 years later its another empty lot like the others in that part of town. It's a vertical cul de sac surrounded by empty space that will ultimately be about as dense as an equivalent part of Katy or Cypress, so much for urbanity inside the loop.

I get more excited when multiple townhomes replace a single nasty old house on a lot with junked cars. The more fine-grained parts of town will over time become much more attractive and desirable because the entire neighborhood isn't being speculatively demolished and then left fallow for decades at random.

Regarding Bayou Park apartments: the article specifically says the developer is not tearing down the existing apartments, just adding a high rise on an unused portion. Parts of this complex flooded during Harvey, not sure it all come back online. BTW if the entire parcel was redeveloped to townhomes, at the current max allowed per sq acre, you're looking at just over 400 units assuming you wouldn't eat up a lot of your land with the new streets you'd need....tearing down the existing 900 apartments to build 400 townhomes would at be at best a wash vis-a-vis density.

Whatever happens to that site, the surrounding zip code 77007 is still growing fast. The conventional wisdom is it takes 5,000 people to justify a supermarket, the area should already support 6.

That stretch of 610 is always going to be the worst so long as it remains just 8 lanes wide. It would benefit greatly from some kind of separate HOT lane system similar to what they did with 635 in Dallas.

They are upgrading it again, and I want to say it will have separate lanes to bypass Uptown like the 290 upgrade at 610.

However, that stretch will always be bad (particularly 610/59) since it connects to the largest employment centers.

Randall Davis Wants To Put This 20-Story Condo Highrise on Westheimer Just East of Weslayan

Quote:
THE RENDERING above looks east from the corner of Westheimer and Eastgrove St. to show the first few floors of a new 20-story condo tower that developer Randall Davis wants to build on the just-under-0.4-acre lot formerly home to the Krispen Home furniture store. Plans for the highrise made their first appearance before Houston’s city planning commission yesterday, where they were deferred until the group’s next meeting in 2 weeks, but not before residents and representatives of the site’s neighboring subdivisions got a few words in. Roughly a dozen speakers from Westgrove Court — the 2-dozen-home residential neighborhood that lies southwest of the would-be tower, along Westgrove and Eastgrove streets — were particularly loud in decrying it. They noted that Westgrove St.’s current narrowness already makes creates tight squeeze for passing traffic.

The same goes for Eastgrove St., where a site plan submitted by the developer shows curb cuts giving access to a driveway at what’d be the southwest corner of the building.

When the variance request goes back for consideration on January 17, commission members will consider whether the building should be allowed to sit back 10.5 ft. from the building line along 3723 Westheimer as opposed to the current 25-ft. minimum. They’ll also weigh in on a 10.5-ft. canopy the developer wants to stick out from the building along at 15-ft. stretch of Westheimer. A representative of the developer has offered to meet with residents of neighboring subdivisions before then.

How skinny would that thing have to be?

High rise density is a good thing, but I hope it doesn't end up looking funky like The Mercer in Uptown.

Katy Boardwalk District developers unveil plans for hotel, more

Quote:
Developers behind Katy Boardwalk District have shared more plans for the long-awaited mixed-use project.

Preliminary plans for the Katy Boardwalk District were released in January 2015, but the project has changed substantially since then. The 169-acre development near Katy Mills mall will include a full-service conference center hotel, a residential component, retail and office space, and green space including a 90-acre nature preserve.

Developer KBH Venture LLC, an entity affiliated with Houston-based Sueba USA Corp., recently entered into a master development agreement with the Katy Development Authority to bring a full-service, four-star conference center hotel to the project, according to a Dec. 18 press release. Now, developers are preparing to break ground on the residential component in January and the hotel in fall 2019.

The hotel will have at least 300 rooms, a specialty restaurant, bar, pool and fitness center as well as conference center of at least 43,000 square feet, per the release. The hotel’s brand is expected to be announced in early 2019, and it’s scheduled to open in fall 2021.

San Francisco-based Gensler, which has a major presence in Houston, will design the hotel, and Houston-based KDW will build it. The Woodlands-based Benchmark Global Hospitality will operate the hotel.

The residential component, Lofts at Katy Boardwalk, is expected to be complete by spring 2020. It will feature 319 loft-style luxury residences with two resort-style pools, a fitness center, residents lounge, business center, and outdoor cabanas and grilling areas. Nearly all of the units in the first phase will be one- or two-bedroom floorplans, per the release.
