Not much of an impact if it's going to be right next door to that motorcycle bar and the Robin Hood.

Texas Southern University Technology Building

Quote:
Texas Southern University (TSU) demolished the previous Leonard N. O. Spearman Technology Building, due to not only to damages sustained from Hurricane Ike but also because of the age and condition of the facility.

The Technology Building replacement is a 100,000 SF, four-story, state-of-the-art facility. It includes a 25,000 SF mechanical penthouse and a 100-foot transmitting tower for the university’s radio station.

Adjacent to the building is a one-story, high bay industrial building to house laboratories, simulators, and other training equipment.

H-E-B buys land in Upper Kirby for new mixed-use project

Quote:
H-E-B plans to develop a new mixed-use project with Midway in Upper Kirby.

The San Antonio-based grocer purchased 3.8 acres on the northwest corner of West Alabama and Kirby for the yet-to-be-announced project. Financial terms of the acquisition, which closed January 17, were not disclosed.

The vacant parcel, formerly the site of the Kirby Court apartments and A.D. Players Theater, sits across from a Whole Foods Market and Bed Bath and Beyond. It is near Gables' West Ave mixed-use development, Hanover's Upper Kirby apartment project and Stolz Partners' Giorgetti luxury condo project.

Whoever designed the TSU building I suspect was in the Navy at some point. Like the building

If the political might of lowly Afton Oaks was enough to stop the light rail on Richmond to Post Oak (which would have intersected Kirby not far from this new development) I tremble at the mention of light rail going through River Oaks. Don't go there....

Drove through Upper Kirby over Christmas and really liked the feel of it. Kirby south of 59 wasn't very appealing.

City mulls plans to build W Hotel in downtown Houston

Quote:
A proposal to build a luxury hotel in downtown Houston found support at a Feb. 13 meeting from residents and business leaders who have long bemoaned the Bayou City's lack of high-end hotel inventory.

Texas Hospitality Partners LLC is proposing to build a W Hotel on top of the downtown Partnership Tower, which was designed to support the structure, according to meeting attendees and a public agenda document. Houston First Corp. held the public board of directors and hotel committee meeting, and an ad hoc committee was formed to study over the next 45 days a potential term sheet for the hotel.

Any plan would need final approval from both the Houston First board and the city of Houston before a signed development agreement is put in place — a process that could take months.

Houston First, Texas Hospitality Partners and W Hotel chain owner Maryland-based Marriott International Inc. (Nasdaq: MAR) couldn't immediately be reached for comment. The Greater Houston Partnership declined to comment through a spokeswoman.

Would be a weird location, no? I don't know of any W hotel by a convention center.

Heights Mercantile developer to acquire, redevelop old Stages Theatre building

Quote:
Radom Capital is set to redevelop the old Stages Repertory Theatre building and an adjacent warehouse at 3201 Allen Parkway, Steve Radom told the Houston Business Journal. Both properties will be redeveloped into a 45,000-square-foot, two-story mixed-use project that'll include creative offices, retail, restaurants and hospitality. Construction on the mixed-use development will begin in late 2019, Radom said.

“We are excited to refresh one of Houston’s most beautiful buildings," Barton Kelly, vice president of Radom Capital, said in a statement. "Careful attention will be paid to preserving and accentuating the building’s historical details."

The construction timeline accommodates Stages' plans to occupy the property until late 2019, when it'll move into its new $30.5 million, three-theater complex dubbed The Gordy.

Radom Capital acquired the properties in 2017 for an undisclosed cost. The future mixed-use project will include 20,000 square feet of green space, an amenity deck on the project's second floor and a 6,000-square-foot patio that'll bridge the Stages building with the warehouse property. The mixed-use project will be connected to Buffalo Bayou Park and its trails, Radom said in a statement.

San Francisco-based Gensler's Houston office will oversee the project's design.

It's a hidden gem right off the parkway.
