Marquette Cos. Building 2 Multifamily Projects In East End

Quote:
Chicago-based Marquette Cos. is moving ahead with two multifamily communities totaling more than 600 units in the East End District, an area primed for transformational commercial development anchored by Midway's 150-acre East River project. "This is going to be a game-changer for the neighborhood," Marquette Cos. President Darren Sloniger said.

2404 Navigation will target millennials who want to live in an urban environment while the East Bayou project will cater to a health and wellness lifestyle, Sloniger said. The projects are within a qualified opportunity zone. Marquette Cos. has partnered with an undisclosed opportunity zone fund for 2404 Navigation and plans to bring on an OZ fund for the East Bayou project as well. 2404 Navigation is a nine-story, 300-unit community that will feature convertibles and one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 850 SF and 18K SF of retail space for a restaurant and a café. On-site amenities will include a rooftop pool, a fitness center, a yoga studio, a tenant-only coworking space and a sky lounge with views of Downtown Houston. The site went under contract in February and will close at the end of construction, Sloniger said. The groundbreaking is expected in mid-August, and build-out will take 15 months. Marquette Cos. is bringing in Chicago-based Brininstool + Lynch as the architect to embrace a more urban design with an authentic vibe and use natural materials and finishings, Sloniger said. Houston-based Gin Design Group was tapped as the designer.

Overlooking Buffalo Bayou and the adjacent East River project, the second, nine-story mid-rise will feature 330 units averaging 920 SF, up to three-bedroom floor plans and 5K SF of retail. Construction is expected to start in January with a 15-month build-out.

New luxury apartments to break ground Fall 2019 in Katy

Quote:
A new high-end apartment complex will break ground in Katy this fall.

Encore Grand Crossing will be located at the northwest corner of West Fernhurst and Western Center Drive near Grand Parkway and I-10, said Charlie Keels, the president of Dallas-based Encore Multi-Family.

Encore bought the 6.87-acre site from Dallas-based Trammel Crow Commercial on May 15, said Tom Dosch, the principal of Dosch Marshall Real Estate, which represented the seller in the deal, in an email. Austin-based Oden Hughes will oversee construction.

Details regarding financing and representation were not disclosed since they are not yet finalized, Keels said.
The first units are expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2020, Encore Enterprises representatives said.

At 6,000 square feet, the four-story building with 240 units will include a game room, coffee bar and spa as well as business-oriented environments, such as a conference room and separate business center with individual workspaces, Keels said.

Other amenities in the community will include two dog parks, a 24-hour package system and an Uber lounge for resident pickups, he said.

Dallas-based JHP Architecture and Urban Design will oversee the building’s design. Details regarding financing and representation were not disclosed since they are not yet finalized, Keels said.

Site of 104-year-old Houston business to become mixed-use development

Quote:
Real estate developer Texas Group is preparing to build a new mixed-use project on the site of one of Houston’s oldest businesses.
 
Texas Group Principal Danna Sivan said her firm is about three weeks away from closing on the property occupied by Southern Importers, which has provided theatrical supplies and costumes to the Houston community for the past 104 years. Southern Importers announced June 13 that it will cease operating from its shop at 4825 San Jacinto St. in Houston’s Museum District on June 29. The store is in the process of liquidating its inventory.

Sivan declined to comment on how much Texas Group is paying for the property or the cost of the mixed-used development. However, the Harris County Appraisal District has valued the land and the building at $1.7 million combined.

Sivan said the mixed-use project is still in the planning phase and that details about the mix of office, retail and multifamily residential space was not yet available. The firm is also in the process of hiring a team to handle general contracting, design and engineering for the project.

The property is being replatted, she said, “in order to tap into transit corridor ordinance benefits.

Once those steps are completed, Sivan said Texas Group wants to break ground on the project as soon as possible.

“The Museum District is going through a transformation, and we are excited to partake in shaping the upcoming neighborhood,” Sivan said.

Center for Pursuit

The Center for Pursuit is moving from 810 Marston street in Neartown to Eado at Harrisburg and Eastwood so Hanover can move forward with future phases of Hanover Buffalo Bayou. Plans call for a 3-story building with retail.

Long-anticipated post office redevelopment in downtown Houston moves forward

Quote:
Almost four years after purchasing downtown Houston’s former Barbara Jordan Post Office, Lovett Commercial is finally ready to unveil formal plans for it.

The Houston-based developer has scheduled a groundbreaking ceremony for the project on June 27, according to a media alert. Formal plans and renderings will be released at that time, but the media alert confirms that the over 550,000-square-foot building will become a mixed-use development featuring "international cuisine, retail, art, music and innovation."

Jason Long, a partner in the New York office of international architecture firm OMA, and Houston-based Powers Brown Architecture are working on the project, per the media alert.

Has there been any recent news on the abandoned high rise hotel at the south (?) end of downtown? It may have been a Holiday Inn or something like that at one time.

It was put up for sale back in April of last year, nothing new since then.

Major Development Proposed for Former Chevron Tract on Loop 610 in Bellaire; But Vision Must Overcome Zoning Hurdles

Quote:
BELLAIRE, Texas – (By Michelle Leigh Smith for Realty News Report) – A major development is being planned for the former Chevron property in Bellaire.

The 30-acre tract shines with potential with frontage on Loop 610. It’s just over a mile from the Galleria. And it’s near hundreds of million-dollar homes.
Investor Danny Sheena of SLS Properties recognized the potential and he purchased the property from Chevron last year.

His plan, as uncovered by Realty News Report, calls for a 300-unit mid-rise residential tower atop a new parking garage, a movie theater, a 145,000-SF mixed-use building with office space and several restaurant-suited pad sites near South Rice Avenue.

Bellaire’s Development Services Department received two requests from Sheena on behalf of SLS West Loop, LP last month for which the City leadership has stalled on several Freedom of Information Requests from reporters and residents. In mid-June, Realty News Report obtained copies of the requests.

Sheena will ask Bellaire’s Planning & Zoning Commission for approval of a proposed zoning change and a recommendation to City Council for a Planned Development-Multi Family project that he envisions as a destination mixed-use development.

His submittal also outlines plans for four perimeter one-story buildings that could be used for retail or restaurants and a 145,000 SF three story “Interior” building for retail or restaurant/health/entertainment with third floor office space. Kirksey Architects is working on the plan.

Bellaire’s Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing is reviewing the plan. To move forward, the plans would require a green light from the Bellaire City Council as well.

It’s an ambitious plan by Sheena. A possible roadblock is the site is in the City of Bellaire, a municipality (population 18,000) with strict planning codes. The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission may thwart Sheena’s plan and extinguish his vision.
