Way to go Houston. Every week its two towers or more that are being proposed it seems. Fantastic news for Harris County. America's fastest growing county!

The interesting parts of this announcement are the list of retailers supposedly confirmed to be part of the retail mix and the developer; Thor's primarily a New York developer, with only one other property in Texas - Cinco Ranch. It would be nice to know if there's a start date envisioned.

Renderings and reports of a giant mixed-use development that would swallow up the entire block on the west side of Kirby Dr. between Colquitt and West Main St. have been shopped around for almost 6 years. But recently there’s been some action: Last week the planning commission approved the combination of the various properties on the block into a single “unrestricted” lot. The hearing was announced on signs posted in front of the Hendricks Pub (at right), Roak, and the OTC Patio Bar, created back in 2011 from portions of the former Settegast Kopf funeral home, as well as in front of Cafe Express (above). The website of New York real estate firm Thor Equities features the latest renderings of the block’s proposed replacement, called the Kirby Collection.

Exclusive: N.Y. developer unveils plans for massive Kirby mixed-use

New York-based Thor Equities told the Houston Business Journal that it is gearing up to break ground on the $125 million Kirby Collection, a million-plus-square-foot mixed-use project in Upper Kirby, despite the current oil slump.

"The oil issue is a silver lining for us," said Jack Bousquet, a developer at Thor. "We think we'll get more favorable construction costs and some of the competition will fade."

Demolition of the site's former buildings is finished, and construction is set to start in April or May, Bousquet said. It's slated to be complete in the third quarter of 2017.

April or May, eh? I'm guessing Thor has deep enough pockets, but we'll see if that doesn't slip into June or July...

I live literally across the street from this big property. About two weeks ago they've installed some power lines in the back of the property. Who knows when the will officially start.

The Kirby Collection

The developer, Thor Equities is beginning a short run of utility construction on the north side of Colquitt between Kirby and Lake early next week.

The minor project will take four weeks to complete and will allow overhead utilities to be removed along the Colquitt side.

Can't wait!
