May contain affordable housing units. The developer is rumored to be Hines.

The Menil has added a cafe, rebuilt its parking lot and is building a drawing institute. Up next, deputy director Sheryl Kolasinski said, is the renovation of apartments the museum owns along Richmond Avenue into a new multifamily tower.

The museum plans to develop a 2.6-acre park next to the new tower and extend the dead-end streets of West Main, Colquitt and Loretta, laying new utilities in the process. The city has proposed asking the museum to build the public infrastructure and park, then reimbursing up to $10 million of those costs via a tax break on the new tower.

The museum's plan would not look different in the absence of public support, Kolasinski said, but it would take longer to complete.

"It's an example for development in Houston," Kolasinski said. "There are free, publicly accessible museums in a publicly accessible park-like setting in a neighborhood that is preserved and pedestrian-friendly. It's one of the few clearly walkable neighborhoods we have, and everything we can do to make more of it is to the benefit of the citizens of Houston."

A portion of Midtown's funds, by law, are set aside for affordable housing, Icken noted, adding that likely will be part of the discussion surrounding the new tower.

This must be the tower that was in the rumor mill over at HAIF. It will be interesting to see details when the time cones.

Menil-owned apartments slated for wrecking ball

Quote:
Residents of the Richmont Square Apartments got notice on Monday that their units are set for the wrecking ball, making way for parks, art buildings and roadway improvements that are part of the Menil Collection's master plan in the Montrose area.

The 320 remaining apartments on Richmond Avenue, owned since 1981 by the foundation that runs the Menil, have been slated for demolition as part of a plan to transform the area. A portion of the complex buildings were earlier knocked down. Residents were given until May 1 to find a new place to live.

"The master plan calls for a variety of things on the southern side of the property: parks, buildings, a street grid, which never existed in that area," Napier said. "The Menil is taking the long-range view for how we want to use our properties and improve them to support our core mission that goes to the art and our art buildings."
