A Houston developer wants to bring a bit of urban sensibility to the Energy Corridor, a section of west Houston known for its suburban office campuses, chain-filled strip malls and outsized apartment buildings.
The developer, PM Realty Group, is committing $1 billion to building a bustling mixed-use community of upscale apartments, outdoor restaurants, hotels and high-rise office towers housing companies seeking to recruit a younger generation of workers who value the outdoors, collaboration with colleagues and an abundance of amenities.
Construction is scheduled to begin next year, and the first office building could break ground before the company finds a tenant to occupy it.
The developer is taking an urban approach to the site by combining as many as 800 residential units with five office buildings totaling 2.6 million square feet, two full-service hotels with connected conference space and 100,000 square feet of retail space including a fitness facility. The scale of the buildings will be in the 14- to 16-story range, though some could be shorter or taller.
The first phase, to include an office building, parking garage, hotel and conference center, fitness facility and additional retail, as well as the public square, is scheduled for completion by early 2018, the company said.
