Hoping the Melrose Building will be restored to its 1952 glory. Apparently considered the first truly modern skyscraper in Houston.

I really truly hope they change the name one day. Extremely lame and unoriginal.

400+ feet in the Med Center is huge. That is about same height as the Spires and will be visible from everywhere. The views should be great!

Agreed but still sounds better than NoDo, WoDo, and SoDo.

So, so, SO derivative. I suppose one day the area north of downtown will be christened "NorDo" and will attract all kinds of missing aircraft.

Two Affordable Housing First for Houston

New Hope just closed on 1.5 acres last week in the East End to build its first (and Houston’s most affordable) mixed-use project, CEO Joy Horak-Brown and VP Nicole Cassier tell us. The property will be the first stop on the Harrisburg metro line and will have 175 single room occupancy (SRO) efficiency units, 4k SF of retail and 8k SF of office space. Joy says New Hope particularly wanted to do another project in the East End because of its near-downtown presence with access to job opportunities and need for affordable housing options amidst a fast-growing neighborhood. It worked closely with the neighborhood, which really wanted a mixed-use, transit-oriented development. It’ll be lively and interactive with the community, Joy tells us—neighborhood organizations will be able to use some of the meeting spaces and rooftop garden.

The top floor of the property will be the office space, including New Hope’s new corporate office. The retail will not be a chain, Joy and Nicole tell us—they and neighborhood leaders are envisioning something similar to Frank’s Pizza Downtown. The City Housing & Community Development has invested $6.6M into the property, which will be leveraged with tax credit equity and private grants. (The anticipated total development price tag is $25M.) It’s aiming to break ground this winter and deliver mid-2017. Glassman Shoemake Maldonado Architects is handling design.
