The Galleria condo looks great. What's the 2 twin towers in the background. For some reason they remind me of The Colony in Dallas.

Kimpton Hotels to open first Houston property in Midtown
By Nancy Sarnoff

Published 9:36 am CDT, Thursday, October 3, 2019

Boutique hotel company Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants announced plans Thursday to open its first project in Houston as part of a multi-block development under way in Midtown.

The San Francisco-based operator of more than 60 hotels worldwide will partner with Australian developer Caydon on the project, which could open at the end of 2022.

The Houston hotel will have 204 guest rooms, a restaurant and café, a rooftop pool and bar and more than 14,000 square feet of meeting space, Kimpton said.

"Houston is the ideal place to expand our Texas footprint," Kimpton CEO Mike DeFrino said in an announcement. "Midtown is quickly solidifying its place as the heart of the city, and its diverse cosmopolitan vibe fits perfectly with Kimpton's brand of hospitality."

Laneways, named after the pedestrian alleys of Melbourne, is Caydon's multi-phase residential, hospitality and retail complex slated for three blocks bounded by Tuam, Main, Fannin and McGowen.

Caydon recently opened its first tower there, Drewery Place, a $200 million, 27-story apartment building.

Last month, a Caydon spokeswoman said the next phase of Laneways would be a combination boutique hotel with apartments. That building, she said, could be as tall as 48 stories.

Big Prediction: By The End Of The Year, Downtown's Sublease Glut Will Be Gone

Read more at: https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/...medium=Browser

Quote:
Sublease space, long plaguing the Downtown Houston office sector, is in line for some serious absorption, according to the discussion at Bisnow’s Future of Downtown event.

“One thing that's not known yet, we’re working on documents which will definitely help the actual market but also the psychology behind it,” Cushman & Wakefield Executive Vice Chairman Tim Relyea said. “All the sublease hangover that we've been working on, One Shell, BG Group Place, Hess. We’re working on documents on almost all of that. So by the end of the year, all the sublease hangover is going to be gone. So that will be a major plus for downtown and be very helpful.”

Combined, those three assignments represent an estimated 1.3M SF of sublease space. Individually, they are some of the largest available blocks. Total sublease space for the entire Houston market sits at 9.1M SF, the majority of which is in the Class-A market with 7.5M SF available, according to Transwestern. With Downtown responsible for 2.3M SF of that sublease space total, completing deals on those spaces could have an outsized effect, reducing Downtown’s sublease availability by over 56%.

Exactly who the tenants are and other details related to the deals can’t be confirmed until the deals close....
Good news if most of those deals come to fruition. Hopefully they aren't a bunch of WeWork and their copy cats...

Buffalo Bayou East Master Plan

Quote:
Utile worked with the Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP), Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA), and HR&A Advisors to develop a visionary master plan for the East Sector of the Buffalo Bayou, between Downtown Houston and the Port Houston Turning Basin.

The eastern stretch of the Bayou is lined with both active and derelict industrial sites that separate the surrounding neighborhoods of the Greater East End, Fifth Ward, and Denver Harbor from the water. BBP sought the development of a master plan for Buffalo Bayou East that would create a resilient recreational landscape of trails and parks that is both authentic to the surrounding neighborhoods and allows existing residents to remain in place and benefit from future developments.

Utile was subcontracted by MVVA to design conceptual plans for select sites not intended for future use as parks. At Lockwood South, Utile interwove a plan composed of both single- and multifamily building types with public green spaces of various scales, including a public promenade providing direct access to waterfront parkland for visitors to create a regional destination. The principles of this plan were developed into design guidelines that will shape the development of other riverfront sites in the sector.

At Turkey Bend, Utile designed a conceptual plan for the adaptive reuse of an interconnected warehouse and barge terminal as a combination of incubator and event spaces. A portion of the roof is removed to create an internal courtyard that provides public access to the Bayou below.

Houston philanthropist to fund Jones Plaza remake
By Hannah Dellinger October 7, 2019

Quote:
The transformation of long-dormant Jones Plaza — an empty block of concrete platforms in the Theater District once likened to a public restroom — will be complete within two years thanks to a $10 million donation from one of Houston’s most powerful supporters of the arts.

Mayor Sylvester Turner on Monday announced that Jones Plaza will become the Lynn Wyatt Square for the Performing Arts by 2021. Wyatt, the famed socialite and philanthropist who has supported the arts in Houston for decades, made the contribution to a $29 million revitalization project.

Check out H-E-B’s new Buffalo Heights grocery store

Quote:
H-E-B on Wednesday opened its Buffalo Heights supermarket, the San Antonio-based grocer's first in a mixed-use development.

The 96,000-square-foot store occupies the ground floor of Buffalo Heights, a seven-story apartment, office and retail complex at the corner of Washington and Heights. The store features an expanded prepared food section with grab-and-go meals, rotisserie chicken, sushi, poke bowls and a 15-foot-long salad bar.

H-E-B Buffalo Heights, 3663 Washington, has an urban feel with brick, tile and wood accents, as well as neon and traffic-inspired signage. The full-sized store features a Roastery Coffee Kitchen, a wine- and beer-tasting counter, a bakery and tortilleria, florist, live kitchen demonstrations, an expanded health and bulk food aisle and a pharmacy. It also will offer curbside pick-up as well as home delivery through Favor, Shipt and Instacart.

When a new downtown park opens, it will have a café from by a familiar company.

La Vie de St Concepts, the owner of Tout Suite in East Downtown and Sweet in CityCentre, will operate a café tentatively called Tout Suite SoDo — SoDo being short for Southern Downtown. The café, along with the rest of the park, will break ground March 2020 and will open March 2021.

The park park will occupy three-fourths of a block bounded by Bell, San Jacinto, Leeland and Fannin streets in the southern portion of downtown Houston. The property currently is about three blocks northwest of the Toyota Center and two blocks southwest of the mixed-used development GreenStreet.

Last November, Houston’s Downtown Redevelopment Authority selected local firm Lauren Griffith Associates to lead the design of the park. Other companies working on the park include Gensler providing architectural services for the café, storage building and other structures; Gandy2 Lighting Design providing lighting services; Kuo & Associates providing civil engineering; and Waterscape Consultants providing water feature engineering. A contractor has not been selected yet.
Southern downtown park


Owner Anne Le describes the Tout Suite concept as an “European-style café and bakery.” The counter-service café serves coffee, pastries, food and desserts. Food will be similar to the original Tout Suite, with some more grab-and-go offerings.

Le and her team were chosen through a request for proposal process; nine total businesses applied to have a restaurant at the space.

“After a thorough RFP process, we are overjoyed to announce the selection of Tout Suite as the café operator for the new Southern Downtown Park,” Bob Eury, president of the Downtown Redevelopment Authority, which is developing the park, said in a release. “It was important to us to find a team adept at creating spaces that appeal to a wide range of customers, from students to professionals, from locals to out-of-towners. (Tout Suite's) unique vision, energy and menu, not to mention their mouth-watering macarons, will be catalytic to this emerging neighborhood.”

Tout Suite SoDo will be 2,400 square feet, with indoor seating for 56 guests and outdoor seating for 40 guests. Le estimates she will have a team of at least 20.

“We are in East Downtown right now, (and we’ll be) in the heart of downtown, blocks away from Toyota Center,” Le said. “To be a part of a park, a new park at that, was what was most exciting to us, I think.”

Angie Bertinot, director of marketing and communications with the DRA, said that a food and beverage option is desperately needed for the area, which is largely parking lots. Tout Suite SoDo will be open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. There will be no other businesses at the park.
