The article says Downtown, but this is for the Texas Medical Center.

Medistar Defers on Downtown Houston Tower

The Houston Planning Commission agreed on Thursday to a request to defer the partial replat of a proposed downtown tower building.

Medistar Houston Medical Center Ltd., the developer, still has an incomplete package, according to the city staff report on University Place First.

At present, the site is a 1.4-acre parking lot located at the corner of Old Main Street and Travis Street. The replat process is being handled by Vernon G. Henry & Associates Inc.

At yesterday's meeting, staff requested and was given a two week deferral to allow time for the applicant to provide revised information "before noon next Wednesday." The revisions must include a revised landscape/site plan, elevations and renderings.

"All submitted pictorial documents must be consistent. Provide information regarding parking count, unit count and mix and floor plans for proposed uses. If tehre is a proposed canopy along Travis Street that encroaches into the 10-foot building line, provide revised variance request."

Architectural designs have been a joint effort of HOK, The Preston Partnership, Kimley-Horn, and Kudela & Weinheimer Landscape Architecture.

While the project's case file name is University Place First, it is also known as Greystart Multi-Family Residential|Medistar Hotel.

Medistar Corp. was seeking a variance for the building line of 15 feet from the curb, rather than 25 feet to allow pedestrian canopies at the building entries that would project 10 feet.

This is a proposed high-rise building that would stand immediately across from the Texas Medical Center. It will include a hotel in the eastern portion of the building facing Main Street and an apartment complex in the western portion, adjacent to Travis Street.

A garage entry for both will be on Old Main Street. Parking for each use will be separated within the structure and each use will fully satisfy the parking required for that use individually.

Exclusive: Peek inside a luxury hotel in the Texas Medical Center

Quote:
Plans are well underway for a luxury hotel housed in the heart of the Texas Medical Center.

Houston-based Medistar Corp. and TRC Capital Partners, an affiliate of The Redstone Cos. of Houston, have entered a joint venture partnership to develop a 357-room hotel at 6750 Main Street, in the central portion of the Texas Medical Center. The hotel will stand at 21 stories and include 20,000 to 25,000 square feet of office and meeting space. Restaurants will occupy the hotel's first floor.

Details of the hotel branding weren't disclosed, but the brand is a "nationally and internationally known hotel," said Kelly Lindig, vice president of development and acquisitions at Medistar.

Lindig said groundbreaking should kick off at the beginning of the second quarter, and the hotel should be complete in the second quarter of 2018.

Intercontinental-branded hotel to rise in Texas Medical Center

Quote:
The hotel portion of a two-in-one hotel and apartment development in the Texas Medical Center will be anIntercontinental-branded hotel, which speaks to the ethnic and geographic diversity of the medical center's clientele, the hotel's developers told the Houston Business Journal.

U.K.-based InterContinental Hotels Group PLC (NYSE: IHG) will open its 21-story, 353-room Intercontinental Houston Medical Center in late 2018. The hotel, which will share a lobby with a Greystar apartment development dubbed Latitude Med Center, will include 11,800 square feet of meeting space, a 7,800-square-foot ballroom and more. The joint apartment and hotel project, located at 6750 Main St., is being developed by Houston-based Medistar Corp. and TRC Capital Partners.
