I dont know... I mean... it's hard to tell most of these new resi towers apart... many of them are within 5 stories of each other so they are very similar in hight as well... also... most of them do look very similar...

No start date has been given for Phase II. The garage it'll stand on is finally under construction. Move-ins were initially expected for the 2Q.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe the residential tower is a part of this development anymore. Only the parking garage and ground-level retail space are being built.

It's still on the table, just may happen later on. The garage is being built to accommodate the tower, 700 spaces will be available. The historic buildings will have just over 300 units.

I heard they had a pool leak, they ripped all the garage panels on the south side and replaced them. Between their yapping about the BRT and trying to get in to Ashby Heights litigation, that place is a mess. The pool leak doesn't help either but I'm assuming the builder will cover that.

New Hugo Ortega concept, other restaurants revealed for convention district

Quote:
A new restaurant from an acclaimed local husband-and-wife duo is among eight eateries Houston First Corp. announced for the transformation of Houston’s convention district.

The restaurants will be on the ground floor of the George R. Brown Convention Center and inside the Marriott Marquis Houston Downtown, which is expected to open later this year. Specific opening dates for the restaurants were not provided.

Confirming earlier rumors, chef Hugo Ortega and his wife, restaurateur Tracy Vaught, will open a new concept, Xochi, on the ground floor of the Marriott Marquis overlooking Discovery Green.

Few specific details about Xochi were provided, but the name means to bloom or catch fire, according to Houston First’s press release. Ortega and Vaught’s other H Town Restaurant Group concepts are Hugo’s, Caracol and Backstreet Cafe, and they most recently became partners in Origen, a restaurant in Oaxaca, Mexico. Ortega was a James Beard Award semifinalists for the fifth time this year, and Vaught received her first nod.

Another restaurant coming to downtown is Grotto, a Italian restaurant owned by Tilman Fertitta’s Landry’s Inc. According to Houston First, the new location will be “not your typical Grotto” and will have one of the largest grappa collections in downtown Houston. It will be 7,348 square feet in the George R. Brown.


Mayor to relaunch study for new justice complex

Quote:
Mayor Sylvester Turner has formed a committee to study how to acquire a new police headquarters and courts complex for Houston.

Former mayor Annise Parker spent more than two years studying how to replace the city's aging "justice complex" but ultimately abandoned it without having found a viable funding source or getting City Council support for identifying one.

The project has been discussed in some form for decades, and Parker administration officials briefed council members on the idea at least six times toward the end of her tenure, spending $3.5 million on consultants and advisers in the process.

Turner has named Bracewell attorney Barron Wallace and retired Hines executive Louis Sklar as co-chairs of the commission. For the moment, they form a commission of two. They will suggest additional members to the mayor, Turner's spokeswoman Janice Evans said.

Chevron selling parcels in Bellaire and west Houston

Quote:
The Bellaire facility at 4800 Fournace Place near the West Loop is being sold as part of an effort to "maximize our office space usage," Chevron spokesman Cam Van Ast said in an email Friday.

Employees who work in the building will move by the end of 2017.

The second property for sale includes 103 acres at Clay Road and the Grand Parkway. The company bought it about two years ago for a research and development facility. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the site.

Texas "remains the global center for our upstream business and other functions and we expect to continue to be a long-term partner to the city and state," Van Ast said,
