Early 2020

More apartments, condo, boutique hotel planned for Australian developer’s Midtown Houston project

Quote:
Melbourne, Australia-based Caydon released details on what else is in store for its three-block development in Midtown, across from Midtown Park.

Along with the 27-story high-rise under construction at 2850 Fannin, Caydon is planning three more apartment high-rise towers, a condo project and a boutique hotel in a mixed-use development called Laneways.

Laneways will include restaurants, green spaces and retail options designed to reflect the streets of Melbourne. Caydon will break ground in early 2020.

"We are designing a mixed-use development inspired by the iconic pedestrian Laneways in Melbourne with coffeeshops, boutiques, wellness concepts and wine bars," Joe Russo, principal of Caydon, said in an emailed statement. "Melbourne’s lanes are also home to an eclectic mix of high-rise residences and boutique hotels."

Caydon has secured about 3.5 acres of land in Midtown for Laneways over the past few years. Last summer, it closed on a 0.7-acre site at 2711 S. Main St., the current home of Art Supply on Main.

The first phase, the $200 million, 357-unit apartment project, will open by September. Caydon still hasn’t released an official name for its first stateside project, a spokeswoman confirmed.

Russo counts about 200 condo units and 200 hotel rooms in the next phase. He said Caydon plans to announce its hotel operator partner soon.

Last October, Caydon told HBJ it was eyeing the Museum District, Montrose and Midtown for future projects.

Historic 12-Story State National Bldg Converting to Moxy Hotel by Marriott

Quote:
Campo Architects is requesting permission from the city to proceed with alterations to convert the State National Bank Building in the Main Street Market Square Historic District into a Moxy Hotel by Marriott.

The Houston Archaeological and Historic Commission is scheduled to consider a request for a Certificate of Appropriateness on the project at their Thursday afternoon meeting.

Campo Architects, based in Covington, Louisiana, is providing architecture, interior design, and historic tax credit services. According to a project description, the building opened in 1923 as the State Bank and Trust Company. However, the Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) records claim the 12-story structure was built in 1928.

Located at 412 Main Street, the building fronts the Metro’s light rail Red Line and is within the Market Square Reinvestment Zone.

Plans are to convert it to a boutique hotel with 119 guestrooms, with a main lobby and bar. Moxy Hotels are marketed as party venues for hip, young urbanites, “with an appetite for adventure. There’s a drink waiting for you with your room key and someone at the bar that wants your number.”

The proposed work includes a new curb cut on Main at the entrance, in-ground lighting in the sidewalk; replacement of a non-historic section above the main entrance with black metal panels; some minor refurbishment of certain windows to have them all match; new exterior lighting on the façade; mounting of a Moxy sign 19 feet above the sidewalk at the east side of the façade; installation of an entrance canopy extending 6 feet toward the street; installation of automatic sliding doors at the entrance.

State National has a living area of 55,844 square feet, according to HCAD. Campo has calculated a living area of 56,700 square feet for the future hotel.

The estimated completion date is the fourth quarter (winter) of 2020.

According to a project narrative submitted by Campo, “The building was gutted in 2015 and is currently being converted into a Moxy by Marriott Hotel.”

Construction on $500M Buffalo Bayou mixed-use could kick off next month

Quote:
Construction on The Allen — a condo, hotel, office and retail project lined up for a six-acre tract off Allen Parkway — could start next month.
A filing on Texas' licensing and regulation website lists an April 15 construction start date.

Houston-based DC Partners along with Tianqing Real Estate Development LLC — the U.S. subsidiary of China-based Tianqing Group Real Estate Co. Ltd. — are developing the project at 1711 Allen Parkway. In 2017, the New York-based luxury chain Thompson Hotels joined the mix.

DC Partners President Roberto Contreras told the Houston Business Journal in 2016 the mixed-use project would have an estimated $500 million price tag.
The state filing lists a $105 million construction cost for a scope of work that includes the new hotel, condo building, restaurants, retail, parking garage, ballroom and pool deck. It shows St. Louis-based architecture firm HOK as the design firm.

A DC Partners spokeswoman said the sales gallery for The Residences at The Allen was under construction and a project update as well as new renderings would be available in the coming weeks.

Montrose apartments could add new 12-story tower, filing shows

Quote:
The developers behind the Fairmont Museum District apartments in Montrose could break ground on a new phase later this year at 4343 Woodhead St., a filing shows.

Work on a project called Fairmont Museum District III is slated to begin Sept. 1, according to a document on Texas' licensing and regulation website.

The scope of work describes it as a 302-unit development with nine stories of apartments above a three-story garage. The leasing office will be on the ground floor, while amenities are planned for the fourth and 12th floors. The filing lists Houston-based Steinberg Dickey Collaborative as the design firm.

County appraisal records show the tract of land belongs to the entity Woodhead Development LLC, which bought the land in May 2018. In 2019, the land was appraised at $7.89 million.

That entity is linked to Josef Marom, according to the Texas comptroller site. Requests for comment from Marom via the number listed on the state filing weren’t immediately returned.

In 2003, the Houston Business Journal reported Marom offered the Houston Independent School District $2.6 million for a 3-acre tract at 4310 Dunlavy, the same address for the Fairmont Museum District apartments currently on the ground. That tract sits next to the land earmarked for the third phase.

More apartments coming a block from Heights Waterworks

Quote:
As early as next month, work could begin to convert land in the Heights that used to be part of a JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) location into a new apartment development.

A filing on the Texas licensing and regulation website shows an entity named 19th Street Property plans to start construction April 1 on Chase Heights at 512 W. 20th St. The document shows an estimated cost of $72 million for the first phase of the project with Houston-based Meeks + Partners listed as the design firm.

Requests for comment from Greystar weren’t immediately returned.

The Chase Heights apartment project will be less than a block away from Houston-based Braun Enterprises' Heights Waterworks redevelopment project, which includes restaurants and retailers. A portion of the historic property will house Phoenix-based Alliance Residential's Broadstone Waterworks apartments, which are expected to begin leasing later this year.

Westin hotel planned for midcentury mod office in Med Center

Quote:
earl Hospitality announced plans Wednesday to redevelop a landmark midcentury modern office building in the Texas Medical Center into a Westin hotel.

The Houston developer is renovating the 1956 Medical Towers, 1709 Dryden, into the Westin Houston Medical Center. The 18-story luxury hotel will offer 273 rooms, ranging from a 350-square-foot King room to a 1,200-square-foot presidential suite, as well as 13 extended-stay rooms outfitted with an apartment-style kitchen and closets ideal for patients seeking long-term care at the Medical Center.

An 18,000-square-foot amenity deck will be built on top of the four-story garage. Amenities include a resort-style pool, fitness center, a restaurant, cafe and bar, 10,000 square feet of meeting space and two outdoor terraces overlooking the Museum District and the Rice University.

Pearl plans to add additional restaurants to the street-level retail, which already includes several fast-casual options including Chipotle, Halal Guys and Salata. The streets surrounding the hotel will be redesigned, adding a curb cut for a valet parking entrance, sidewalks lined with trees and patio dining space.

The Westin Houston Medical Center is expected to open early next year.

Medical Towers, designed by the architects of the United Nations Secretariat Building and Lever House in New York, was one of the first International Style buildings in Houston. These post-World War II podium buildings emphasize clean, minimalist lines over classic, ornate designs.

Granite is in the beginning phase of developing a mid-rise office building with retail space in Midtown Houston, one of the most walkable areas in the city. The building, designed by Gensler, will have a residential component in partnership with The Morgan Group and retail in partnership with Crosspoint.
