$58M food hall coming to Houston's Theater District

Quote:
Lyric Market will open this fall at 411 Smith St. on the corner of Louisiana, Preston and Smith streets, according to a Jan. 5 press release. The $58 million, 31,000-square-foot culinary destination is under the direction of real estate developer Jonathan Enav, the president and CEO of Houston-based U.S. Property Management, which manages the 27-story Lyric Centre office building.

Local restaurant group Clark Cooper Concepts — behind eateries such as Brasserie 19, Coppa Osteria and the recently closed SaltAir Seafood Kitchen — is partnering with Enav on the project, per the release.

Chef-driven concepts will dominate the space, which also is expected to include a variety of vendors with offerings such as fresh produce, fresh flowers, artisan baskets or handmade hats, according to a September 2016 post from Houston-based Capital Reality Group, which is handling leasing for the hall. In total, 34 spaces ranging from 105 to 790 square feet are available to lease as of Jan. 5, according to LoopNet.

The space will be fully enclosed in glass and designed by Austin-based Joel Mozersky Design with New York kitchen designer Jimi Yui of YuiDesign, per the release. Plans also call for an underground speakeasy and a second-story open-air terrace and café. Houston-based landscape architecture firm Kudela & Weinheimer Landscape is designing the terrace with seating, fire pits and a downtown view.

Just outside of the hall will be a public plaza centered around the Lyric Centre's 36-foot-tall "Virtuoso" sculpture by David Adickes, per the release. Once open, the plaza will host community programs. The exterior, designed by Houston-based Munoz+Albin Architecture, will include LED-lit moving panels and a glass box hovering 60 feet above the sidewalks.

Lyric Market will be on the ground level of the eight-story, 327,315-square-foot Lyric Centre Parking Garage project under construction. The parking garage portion will offer nearly 700 above-ground parking spaces.

The concept is modeled after international food halls, including New York’s Chelsea Market, Porugal’s Time Out Market and Israel’s Sarona Market.

Three other food hall concepts are planned or already located within a few blocks of Lyric Market. Conservatory Underground Beer Garden & Food Hall, at 1010 Prairie St., opened in 2016. Finn Hall is opening this spring in The Jones on Main, the renovation and rebranding of 708 Main and 712 Main. And Bravery Chef Hall, at 409 Travis St. inside Aris Market Square, is expected to open this summer.

State approves initial funding for UTHealth psychiatric hospital in Houston

Quote:
The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston will build a $125 million behavioral health campus in Houston, and the state of Texas has approved the initial funding.

The Legislative Budget Board and the Governor to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission approved the first $6 million in state funds for the project, according to a Jan. 8 press release from UTHealth. That funding will be for the architectural planning and design phase.

Plans for the UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health include acute, subacute and residential treatment with up to 300 beds. When combined with the UTHealth Harris County Psychiatric Center’s 274 existing acute care beds, the facility is expected to become the largest academic behavioral health hospital in the country, per the release.

The new UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus building is expected to break ground in January 2019 and be complete in fall 2021, according to a spokeswoman. The architect selection is in the final stage, and general contractor top bidders will be interviewed next month. The project will be about 200,000 square feet and will be built on the site of an existing parking lot adjacent to the UTHealth HCPC. The press release says it “will incorporate the latest design concepts for a behavioral health facility.”
Site is just outside the Texas Medical Center: https://www.google.com/maps/place/28...!4d-95.3743252

Highrise apartments will replace La Colombe d'Or historic ballroom

Quote:
The historic ballroom of Montrose Boulevard's boutique hotel La Colombe d'Or will see its last waltz at a private party this weekend.

Le Grand Salon de la Comtesse, an 18th-century Rococo room with walls of English oak paneling, gild-ed-frame mirrors and grand chandeliers.

The salon is named for the French-Belgian princess La Comtesse Elisabeth Greffulhe, who is immortal-ized as a character in Marcel Proust's "Remembrance of Things Past."

Oil tycoon John Mecom Sr. brought the 45x65 feet room over in pieces in the 1960s. His son sold it to Houston businessman Steve Zimmerman in the 1990s, who ensconced it in a stucco building adjacent to his hotel and restaurant. Starting Monday, it will be dismantled and stored to make way for a new 34-story luxury apartment building.

Residents and hotel guests in both buildings will share a slew of luxury amenities, including the tower's 10th-level swimming pool and the courtyard's sculptures, fountains and an outdoor fireplace.

Hines tried to be as sensitive as possible to the property's historical asset, said Kevin Batchelor, senior managing director for Hines' southwest region. "The alternative would be to tear it down and build a bigger, clunkier building. Instead of using every square inch of land, we reduced the footprint and went slightly taller, but left room for parks, which enhances the connectivity."

Caydon pours foundation for Midtown apartment tower
By Katherine Feser /Houston Chronicle, Tuesday, January 30, 2018

http://www.chron.com/business/bizfee...t-12534898.php

Quote:
Rain didn't stop Melbourne-based Caydon from marking a milestone at its 27-story apartment high-rise going up at 2850 Fannin in Midtown.

A parade of 523 truckloads of concrete began pouring the mat foundation at 7:30 a.m. and continued for 9 1/2 hours. Hoar Construction and TAS Concrete oversaw the project, which involved 70 workers and 600 tons of rebar.

More Than $49M Expansion Begins At Holocaust Museum Houston

Quote:
The Holocaust Museum Houston’s expansion project that will double its size has begun with the relocation of two of their most valuable historical artifacts, the rescue boat Hanne Frank and a World War II-era rail car of the type used by Nazis to transport their victims to concentration camps.

The Houston Chronicle reports , in what was a slow and careful operation using a high-capacity crane, the two museum pieces were relocated from their place in the patio, where they were previously on display, to another area 120 feet away to protect them from the risk of being damaged during the construction project.

The construction project, which officially began Monday with a projected cost of $49.4 million, will more than double the museum’s space to a total of 57,000 square feet. At its scheduled completion in spring 2019, it will become the fourth largest Holocaust museum in the country, according to the spokesperson Robin Cavanaugh.

New residential mid-rise to break ground on Studemont

Quote:
Alliance Residential Co. will begin construction the week of Feb. 5 on a five-story, 375-unit mid-rise apartment building near the southwest corner of Summer and Studemont, across the street from Arne's Warehouse in Washington Heights.

Broadstone Studemont will sit on a 4-acre section of land within a 10-acre vacant plot, close to the Olivewood Cemetery and the expected Memorial Hermann convenient care center, according to Cyrus Bahrami, managing director for Phoenix-based Alliance.

The multifamily developer bought the land in November 2017, with the project's expected delivery in 2019. Alliance did not disclose the purchase price or budget for the project.

The Carlyle Group is financing the project and Citizens Bank is the project lender. Wallace Garcia Wilson Architects and Terra Associates are the architects and engineers behind the project, respectively.

Museum District boutique condos in development

Quote:
A Houston-based multifamily developer is preparing to break ground on a luxury midrise project in the Museum District.

Urban Flats Builder is in the preconstruction phase on its latest project, Park on Caroline, which will stand at five stories and contain 40 one- and two-bedroom units. Though a firm groundbreaking date wasn't made available, Urban Flats Builder is developing the project with the intention of being initially leased. Eventually, the units will be sold as condo units, said Kenny Antoniono, director of leasing and marketing at Urban Flats Builder.

Park on Caroline's residential units will be designed with open floor plans, wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, hard finish surfaces and lots of natural light. There will be 10 one-bedroom units that offer 1,100 square feet of space and 30 two-bedroom units that offer between 1,291 square feet and 1,387 square feet. The average monthly rent for a Park on Caroline unit will be $3,227.

The stone-line building's exterior will be landscaped with mature oak trees, Antoniono said, and parking will be offered on the building's lower levels. It's unclear if an architect and general contractor have been retained.

Urban Flats Builder typically develops projects with the intent of selling them, Antoniono said. The Park on Caroline project's current valuation, when marketed as a condo project, is more than $18,595,800, Antoniono said. The project's total cost of development is $12,419,437, and Urban Flats Builder is requesting a conventional loan of $8,072,634, per a company statement.

Urban Flat Builders has several projects underway in the Museum District. In April 2017, it unveiled the Oaks on Caroline, a six-story, 28-unit midrise condo at 4820 Caroline Street. Click here to take a tour of that project. The developer's currently planning the Ridge on Caroline at 4802 Caroline St. These residential projects will be marketed as "sister projects" to one another.

I'm curious, when do y'all think Houston will have no more block-large surface lots downtown anymore? I've never been to Houston, but it was famous for its horrible sea of lots downtown, but they appear to be disappearing by the day. Good to see!

I think there will always be at least a few surface lots lingering even if most of downtown is developed. The area around the jails and court buildings is not that desirable and can't see many developers racing to build around there.

I would say that some of the area around the stadiums and the Bayou too. The lots around the stadiums are owned by the county, and likely will remain reserved for their uses as they are needed, and the bayou through downtown forms a nice cutbank and would not be good long-term for anything too intensive.
