New hotel, residential, office mixed-use project planned near downtown

Quote:
A developer is seeking variances from the city of Houston planning commission for a 13.6-acre mixed-use development about 2 miles west of downtown.

Documents from the Jan. 17 agenda show plans for a development on six reserves just south of Buffalo Bayou, between West Dallas and Allen Parkway, extending from Marston to Tirrell Street. It's near the small Autry Park and South Shepherd Drive. Plans show a hotel, residential component, office building with two floors of coworking space, retail space, activity lawn and plaza.

While the variance form and plat document don't list the developer name, additional pages from the Jan. 17 agenda show Houston-based Hanover Co.’s name and refer to the project as Hanover Buffalo Bayou. Requests for comment from Hanover weren’t immediately returned. The form was submitted by Houston-based LJA Engineering Inc., and Baltimore-based Design Collective and Houston landscape architecture firm OJB are also listed on some of the pages.

In October, Houston City Council approved a deal to sell about 4.54 acres at 3540 W. Dallas St. to the apartment developer. The property is within the site where Hanover's proposed mixed-use project is planned, but Hanover hasn’t closed on the tract yet, according to Harris County Appraisal District records. According to a City Council agenda item from October, Hanover R.S. Limited Partnership will pay $30.6 million for the land, and the city will split the proceeds evenly with Harris County.

The variances requested include extending Marston Street across the project and adding another street, Buffalo Rising, to extend from West Dallas to Allen Parkway. A site plan shows two additional proposed roads, Autry Park Drive and Buffalo Park Drive. The developer is also requesting a zero-foot building line, stating in the variance application that “the size, and location of this development lends itself to require densification with the zero foot building line.”

The city planning commission will vote Jan. 17.

Hanover also has other projects underway around Houston. The developer's second tower on Post Oak, the 280-unit Hanover Blvd Place, will feature a clear-bottom “sky pool” jutting out from the rooftop deck. Hanover is the developer and contractor for Houston-based Weingarten Realty Investors’ (NYSE: WRI) The Driscoll, a $150 million, 30-story high-rise set to overlook the River Oaks Shopping Center. And Hanover River Oaks — a luxury apartment tower in the Upper Kirby area — broke ground about a year ago and will include a first-floor retail component.

Near Hanover's proposed Buffalo Bayou project, Atlanta-based Wood Partners could be one step closer to pursuing a new apartment building named Alta West Dallas near the corner of Shepherd and West Dallas. In November, the city of Houston planning commission approved a request to replat two tracts of land into one nearly 3-acre reserve.

Plans revealed for $125M UTHealth psychiatric hospital in Houston

Quote:
Plans for a new $125 million mental health facility were revealed Jan. 11.

The project is a joint venture between the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and the Texas State Health and Human Services Commission. As previously announced, the project will be called the UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health and will be built using state funds approved by the 2017 Texas Legislative Budget Board and Gov. Greg Abbott.

The UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health will be the first public mental health hospital built in Houston in more than 30 years, according to a Jan. 11 press release. Construction is expected to begin this summer, and Houston-based Vaughn Construction is serving as the construction manager-at-risk. Architectural firm Perkins+Will, which was founded in Chicago and has a Houston office, designed the facility.

The new facility will be at 5601 W. Leland Anderson St., adjacent to the UTHealth Harris County Psychiatric Center. Both will be managed and staffed by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, and the combined campus will be the largest academic psychiatric hospital in the country, per the release.

It's great to see more street level retail proposed in Downtown. One aspect I would change is to do away with the raised walkway(s). Pedestrians should be at the street level.

Mission Capital Arranges $7.3 Million of Financing for Pelican Builders’ Acquisition of Houston Development Site

Quote:
HOUSTON (Jan. 3, 2019) — Mission Capital Advisors announced that its Debt and Equity Finance Group has arranged a $7.3-million non-recourse land loan for the acquisition of 5656 San Felipe Street, a 1.26-acre development site in Houston. The borrower, Houston-based Pelican Builders, is working to finalize plans for an as-of-right, 17-story condominium project, which will include 67 luxury residences and 191 parking spaces. The Mission Capital team of Jason Parker, Steven Buchwald and Alex Draganiuk arranged the financing from a national real estate finance company.

Located at the nexus of the highly desirable Galleria/Uptown and Tanglewood neighborhoods, the 322,708-square-foot property will provide the area with much-needed luxury residential product. Current plans for the development call for 67 well-appointed residences with on-site amenities that include a pool deck, resident lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center and a dog park. The project is expected to break ground in October 2019.

“Pelican is one of most seasoned condo developers in the region, and we received a lot of interest from capital providers interested in providing them with the land loan that will pave the way for the condo development,” said Parker. “With the property’s strong location and the unmet demand for luxury condos in this prime area of Houston, we were able to structure favorable financing with a national real estate finance company.”

Downtown’s Houston Center prepares for makeover

Quote:
Brookfield Properties, owner of Houston Center, downtown’s largest office complex with four towers and 4.2 million square feet, is launching the most dramatic renovation the 1970s-era property has ever seen. The project aims to give Houston Center an edge in a downtown market where the most desirable office buildings feel more like hotels with sleek coffee bars, pocket parks with WiFi and co-working lounges.

Brookfield acquired Houston Center in late 2017 and has spent the past year with architects from Gensler and Clark Condon designing the renovations, which, executives said, will transform the property into a vibrant, easy-to-navigate collection of buildings punctuated by new restaurants, shops and greenspace. A central plaza with a new monumental circular staircase is envisioned as a gathering place along McKinney Street.

Overall declined to say how much the company would spend on the Houston Center renovation, but said its investment would reflect the company’s confidence in the downtown Houston office market.

Houston Center occupies five blocks along McKinney Street on the east side of downtown, where the office occupancy rate is 81 percent, according to fourth quarter data from Colliers International. The property, which is 70 percent leased, is comprised of LyondellBasell Tower, 2 Houston Center, Fulbright Tower and 4 Houston Center. The Shops at Houston Center, a multi-story mall in 4 Houston, at the southeast corner of San Jacinto and McKinney, will also be renovated, Overall said.

Construction will begin next month and is expected to take nearly two years to complete.

High rise development, Herons Kingwood Marina, brews tension amid flooding concerns

Quote:
Many Kingwood residents are raising concerns about the development of a high-end marina on a flood-prone plot of land.

Some in Kingwood say The Herons Kingwood Marina, a project that includes mixed-use high-rises, docks and a road expansion, will increase flooding potential and damage the community’s liveable forest identity.

The development is planned around the Barrington community just south of the intersection of Kingwood and Woodland Hills drives.

People will have a chance to comment on the marina during a public meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at the Kingwood Community Center held by residents to discuss the pros and cons of the project.

Romerica Group, a Houston-based urban development firm, is developing the project; Italian company Torrisi & Procopio Architetti is behind the design.

LOVE the design. I'd imagine it would get pretty damn hot under that glass canopy in summer months, though. Would have a greenhouse effect.

The area as it is already highly prone to flooding. Add a massive development into the mix and it becomes more uncertain. The San Jacinto river needs to be dredged first..though I believe they are working on it.

This article also talks about downtown residential growth:

Quote:
Residential growth has been one of the primary goals for Downtown. Since 2013, the number of residents in the submarket has more than doubled from 3,800 to more than 9,300, according to the Houston Downtown Management District. There are more than 6,000 residential units in Downtown Houston with about 500 more under construction to be delivered by 2020 and double that planned, per the district.

48-story mixed-use tower to rise in Texas Medical Center

Quote:
Houston-based Medistar Corp. is expected to begin construction on its next tower in the Texas Medical Center area around the end of the third quarter of 2019, according to a press release from Houston-based Transwestern.

Transwestern Executive Vice President Justin Brasell and Senior Vice President Lisa Bovermann are handling health care leasing for the project, dubbed Innovation Tower, per the release.

Plans for the medical tower first emerged in November 2017. However, as expected, much has changed since then.

Phase 1 of Innovation Tower will contain 476,500 square feet of medical and life science office space above a 1,700-vehicle parking garage, per the release. There will also be retail space and a penthouse-level restaurant and lounge. The building is outside the bounds of the Texas Medical Center, which restricts for-profit businesses from operating in nonprofit hospital complexes, Medistar CEO Monzer Hourani told the Houston Business Journal in 2017.

The development of Innovation Tower's second phase will depend on market demands. Phase 2 could include 410 luxury high-rise residential units or additional medical, biomedical and life science office space, per the Transwestern release.

Eventually, the tower is expected to be 48 stories and 1.6 million square feet, per the release.

Innovation Tower will be built at 6700 Main St
., the site of a SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western that Medistar bought around 2006 or so, Hourani told HBJ previously. The tower will be connected via a skybridge to Medistar's joint hotel-multifamily development across the street. The Intercontinental Houston Medical Center at 6750 Main St. opened earlier this year, and the attached Greystar apartment development, dubbed Latitude Med Center, at 1850 Old Main St. welcomed its first residents last summer.

Once completed, Innovation Tower will be the first Class AA tower in the Texas Medical Center offering world-class building amenities to create a distinct live/work/play environment,” Transwestern’s Brasell said in the release. “Innovation Tower will be an iconic building and great complement to the Texas Medical Center."
