I missed that render earlier. That's going to be a nice addition to the area north of the GWB.

I can't tell where it is in relation to the Marquis. It should be interesting to see both these projects go up together...

Here's a map for reference. That entire side of downtown is going to be completely transformed in the next few years. Can't wait to see all the cranes! Also keep in mind that the block directly behind the Marriot Marquis might be developed also! Great things going on.

With the new highrise development west of the Marquis, the east side of downtown is getting taller.

Marquette Cos. has been active in Houston for a while, buying and renovating various smaller apartment complexes, but the Illinois-based developer is closing on a piece of prime downtown property in June to develop its first high-rise multifamily project.

Marquette Cos. will break ground this quarter on a 364-unit, 29-story apartment building with approximately 7,700 square feet of ground floor retail space in downtown Houston, a block from the Houston Astro’s Minute Maid Park. Ziegler Cooper is the architect and Pepper-Lawson Construction LP, the Texas division of Chicago-based Pepper Construction Group LLC, is the contractor. The cost of the project was not disclosed.

The apartment high-rise, dubbed Block 52, will include a 589-space private parking garage situated above the retail space and below the residential units, as well as two floors of amenities including a resort-style, rooftop pool. Rental prices will range from $2.70 to $2.80 per square foot for apartments ranging in size from approximately 600 to 1,800 square feet.

The project is set for completion in the summer of 2015.

I just saw that. BisNow was mentioning Block 52, and I had to go to the map to figure out it was the Marquette.

HBJ article says they want to be done with this building by Summer 2015, which is an aggressive schedule. Think a 29-floor apartment can be built in slightly more than a year?

If they have their act together like the developers of Skyhouse, I'd say yes.

Nothing specific. I hear many of these new highrises are going to rent for $2.70 a sf a month. Or more. That's like DC.

Any word on what's going into that pink building?

More on the building, most interesting thing is that they want to begin this month and finish just over a year from now.

Block 52 will include over 6,800 s.f. of retail and restaurant space at the buildings base along with a 552-space private parking garage situated above the retail space and below the residential units. The property will be a combination of high-rise and low-rise apartments with the low-rise units forming an active streetscape, concealing the garage. Block 52 encourages walkability by being only one block from Houston’s light rail system. Additionally, a large bike storage and maintenance area are provided on level 2 for residents who prefer a bicycle over a car.

The exterior architecture will be punctuated with a modern combination of brick, stone and metal accents. Floor to-ceiling windows and glass balconies preserve priceless views of Houston and the surrounding areas. A well-appointed porte-cochère incorporates dramatic water features and lighting to welcome residents and guests to the main lobby complete with concierge services.

Resident amenities are included on multiple floors throughout the property. Level 9 will feature an indoor fitness and yoga studio with an outdoor yoga “Fusion Lawn.” A Guest Suite is also included for residents with overnight guests. Also on level 9, is over 20,000 s.f. of outdoor amenities with panoramic views into Minute Maid Park. A large resort style pool boasts soaking ledges, fountains, private cabanas and covered trellis lounge areas to keep residents cool on those hot Houston days. Residents and guests can also enjoy the outdoor living room area, featuring a full kitchen, fireplace and gas grill. The game lawn will include a beach volleyball court and fire pit. Level 7 will include a dog park and pet friendly amenities. The Sky Club on the 26th floor features a Club Kitchen with spectacular views of downtown Houston. An exclusive Ballpark Club room on level 28 includes an exterior terrace for residents living on the Penthouse and Summit levels to enjoy watching the Astros baseball game.

Rental prices will range from $2.70 to $2.80 per square foot for apartments ranging in size from approximately 600 to 1,800 square feet. Marquette is utilizing the Downtown Living Initiative (Chapter 380), which is effectively a development grant provided to the first 5,000 units to be developed in downtown Houston and this project will receive a $5.5 million benefit from the grant. The building is being built by Pepper-Lawson Construction LP, the Texas division of Chicago-based Pepper Construction Group LLC. and will be delivered in Summer 2015.
