Luxury multifamily project to break ground in downtown Houston

Quote:
A $54 million, 229-unit luxury apartment project, dubbed the Regalia at the Park, will soon break ground at 100 Crawford in downtown Houston, a Colliers spokesperson told the Houston Business Journal. Upon its delivery in around 26 months, the property will include studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units, as well as a swimming pool, outdoor grilling and dining areas, a yoga studio, a fitness center and structured parking.

Pricing information on the apartment units wasn't made available. The Regalia at the Park will occupy the entire downtown block bounded by Crawford Street, Commerce Street, North Jackson Street and Ruiz Street.

Jeffrey Donnelly and Dmitry Levkov with Colliers' New York office arranged the project's financing on behalf of the developer, Florida-based DLC Residential. Laredo-based IBC Bank provided the $35 million construction loan and Kansas City-based Platform Investments provided $8 million in financing.

Houston-based Mucasey & Associates designed the development. General contractor information wasn't made available.

Everyone Ousted from The Georgian Apartments on Willowick, New Apartments Set To Rise in Its Place

Quote:
CRESCENT Communities sent a letter last week to all residents of The Georgian apartments at 2511 Willowick, just north of Westheimer, letting them know that they’ll be kicked out of the complex in 6 months. The existing 114 units — home to residents over 55 — will be torn down and replaced with what the letter describes as “a new apartment building with integrated retail.” Crescent closed on the 53-year-old complex in 2015 after the purchase stalled the previous year.

“Obviously, the redevelopment of this site will require you to find a new home, and we are dedicated to assisting in this transition,” reads the letter. To that end, the owner is letting people out of their leases early, offering some financial assistance to relocate, and “engaging a relocation specialist to assist residents.” The final move out date is October 15.

Governor, Turner, TMC officials to announce new project
By Nancy Sarnoff
Published 10:03 am, Monday, April 23, 2018

Gov. Greg Abbott, Mayor Sylvester Turner and officials from the Texas Medical Center are expected to announce new details Monday afternoon about TMC3, a collaborative medical research campus slated for 30 acres between Brays Bayou and Old Spanish Trail.

The proposed project, which has been in the works since at least 2015, is expected to bring together four institutions and contain multiple components, including hotel rooms, restaurants and bars, green space and an enormous plaza shaped like a double helix, a nod to the medical description of intertwining strands of DNA.

Officials scheduled to attend the 2:30 p.m. announcement include Baylor College of Medicine President Paul Klotman, Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp, Texas A&M University System Vice Chancellor of Health Services Carrie Byington, Texas Medical Center President William McKeon, the University of Texas System Chancellor William McRaven, the University of Texas Health Science Center President Giuseppe Colasurdo and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center President Peter Pisters.

I do hope the new building is 800+ feet tall.

New timeline revealed for $1.5B Texas Medical Center expansion

Press Release: http://www.tmc.edu/news/2018/04/tmc3...edical-center/

Quote:
Groundbreaking for TMC3, the new campus, is expected to begin in 2019 with completion slated for 2022. The collaborative research campus is expected to involve five founding institutions as medical centers across the world continue to seek collaboration between major corporations and research universities.

The new campus alone is expected to have a $5.2 billion impact on the city of Houston and create a projected 30,000 new jobs. The campus is located south of TMC's current footprint in what is now mostly a parking lot between Old Spanish Trail and South Braeswood Boulevard.

"This project itself, I think, is one of the most transformational things that will ever happen to the Texas Medical Center," said Bill McKeon, president and CEO of TMC. "This will really set the cornerstone of how we do things in the future."

A lead architect and developer have not been selected for the project, but TMC has been working with Gensler and Hines in the initial phases of the project.

The 30-acre campus is expected to include roughly a 1.5 million-square-foot shared research space among the founding institutions: TMC, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas A&M University Health Science Center, the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. It's a first time these institutions will have built and shared a space of this scale in the TMC.

TMC3's centerpiece, resembling the double helix shape of a DNA strand, will be a multi-story building across most of the 30-acre area. The structure is expected to feature core laboratories, restaurants, retail and commercial space. TMC reversed its land covenants, historically designating its property as a nonprofit sphere, to become a for-profit area similar to its innovation institute. The labs are expected to be dedicated to genomics, imaging, drug screening along with conference and educational space.

Another visible part of the campus expected to be built is the 60-foot-tall elevated park, which will be open to the public. The 18-acre park is planned to have gardens, walking and running trails and views of downtown Houston. Landscape architect James Corner, who designed the High Line in New York, will be designing the park.

Finally, the new campus will feature a 19-story TMC Hotel and Conference Center. The hotel is expected to have 410 rooms, and the conference center is planned to encompass 50,000 square feet. A flag has not been selected for the hotel, McKeon said.
