The Perennial: Office tower will not move forward until a tenant is signed, but the hotel/apartment tower plans to break ground the 2Q or 3Q.

Update: At the end of last year, the developer signed an agreement with a hotel brand and plans to break ground on a full-service hotel in the second or third quarter. The office building has been put on hold until a tenant can be found.

Houston-based Midway has redesigned the luxury hotel it is planning to build downtown, giving the 21-story tower a more sleek, classic look than the modern, whimsical feel it originally had.

The design change was made to give the Hotel Alessandra a more cohesive feel between the exterior and interior space, said Jonathan Brinsden, Midway's CEO, who described the new look as a "modern interpretation of European style." The new design will also give the building a more pedestrian-friendly facade at its ground level.

"There are a lot of iconic buildings that have no response to the pedestrian environment. They turn their back on the street," Brinsden said. "Our philosophy is activating the street."

Midway recently began demolition on the site where the hotel will be built.

Preservationists? Houston? Haha!!!

What I don't get is that sunk a bunch of money into that buildng a few years ago doing some structural work on the entire exterior. It is a shame. My guess is that it could not compete with rents with the other buildings but what a great residential it would make.

Structure as in the tower? Yes. The hotel is on the lower half, apartments on the upper.

No oil money involved in the redevelopment. Shorenstein is real estate only and they're from San Francisco. If anything, it's Facebook dollars.

The legendary furniture designer not only tipped AN off about the commission, he was also responsible for introducing Ms. Hadid to Suzanne Klein and Edna Meyer-Nelson, the Richland execs who promptly hired the Pritzker Prize winner to plan their mixed-use HQ. No design has been released yet, but we’ll be waiting with bated breath to see what sort of swooping, eccentric forms Zaha cooks up for the project—that is, unless falling oil prices put a lid on this baby before it’s hatched!

I agree. Downtown is where it should be. I hope it's not out in the Energy Corridor.
