Woops, fixed that. Anyway, the Hyatt Hotel is no longer on the map because the developer is now looking at selling the land.

Randall Davis Trying To Buy an Entire Westhaven Estates Townhome Complex, in One Fell Swoop

Developer Randall Davis has been trying to buy an entire 16-unit townhome complex at the corner of San Felipe Dr. and Nantucket Ln. “They have tried multiple times to purchase,” a source tells Swamplot, noting that the offers have been rejected so far. In September of last year, Davis sent an offer of $400,000 for each unit at 5918 San Felipe St., sweetened with a $50,000 discount off the purchase price of a unit in the condo building Davis intends to build in their place. “They needed a unanimous decision” from all 16 owners, the source notes, “which did not happen.”

The townhome complex was built in 1977; it’s directly adjacent to a gas station on the corner of San Felipe and Fountain View, and around the corner from 7-story brick-and-concrete-block Tanglewood Condos (visible at top right in the photo at top).

None of the townhomes in the complex is currently listed for sale. The highest price paid for a townhome in the complex, according to MLS records, was $305,000 for a 1,664-sq.-ft unit last June. But a reader who is not a resident tells Swamplot that the main reason the residents rejected the offer was that the price was too low, “especially for the people that purchased and renovated within the past couple years. Also, it would be difficult to find a home in the area in that price range with the same appeal.”

According to BisNow, Tim Relyea of Cushman & Wakefield has presented a set of development maps that show how much is underway or expected to begin construction. I'd be interested to see those maps.

Meanwhile, FMC Technologies has begun construction in Generation Park. I don't recall the particulars of this project.

I wonder if the Hyatt Regency in Uptown/Galleria is a replacement for that?

Revised Projects:
#1 - 1111 Travis: 24-floors, 1Q 2016 Completion. Up from 23-floors
#20 - One Market Square: 41-floors, 1Q 2017 Completion. Formerly known as "International Tower"
#22 - Block 98: 39-floors, 314 units. Up from 38-floors, 299 units.
#27 - Camden Property Trust Residential: 21-floors, 580 units. Up from 12-floors, 518 units.

Removed Projects:
Hyatt Place: 11-stories, next to Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites. Cancelled?

Great news! Much more exciting than the two suburban-style hotels announced for the Energy Corridor yesterday.

I wouldn't think so. Two different developers, two different areas, and the one for downtown was going to be a Hyatt Place. I actually don't mind that the project is being cancelled, didn't care for the design. Hopefully something better & taller goes up on that site.

Will the new hotel stretch to that parking lot and take its place or will the hotel not stretch that far and the lot will stay?

I just took it as Hilton Garden replacing it. One added and one removed, about the same size and starts in Q4 this year just like the Hyatt.

Lateral move IMO.

The pool looks great. I would have personally rather the pool be facing the Downtown skyline rather than Discovery Green, but it looks nice.

Major day for permits, based on HBJ. Both 3737 Buffalo Speedway and Millennium 2 are under contract (3737 already has the crane up), Westway Park is going up at 5060 Westway Park Boulevard (any renders on that one?), Heartis has started an assisted living center in Clear Lake, another Patel is building a Spring Hill Suites hotel in Park Ten, Woodbranch is underway (12120 Wickchester Lane), and the permit for the Astoria was approved (sounds like closing the barn after the horse is out). And a tubular fabrication building is going up in North Houston. Busy, busy...

^I like that. We could use a few projects like that on lots that are affected by the capitol view corridors.
