The Shenandoah City Council has approved zoning for a new 69-acre metropark planned for the east side of Interstate 45.

The Sam Moon Group is planning to build the development, which will include apartments, hotels, entertainment, retail, restaurants and high-rise office buildings, said Garry Watts, mayor of Shenandoah.

The company is planning to build the development near its current Sam Moon Shopping Center.

"It's going to include a full-service hotel, entertainment venue, four or five multi-story office buildings, 900 Class A apartments," said Greg Smith, Shenandoah's city administrator. "It is going to be a great development for the city."

The development will take about five years to complete, depending on the market, Smith said.

"It just depends on the development and the demand as The Woodlands continues to build-out and their buildings get full," Smith said. "And with Texas Children's Hospital and Methodist coming into that immediate area, those office buildings could go even faster."

Ah, that will be located on Main Street near the Hardy Yards. The Lofts is a popular moniker for developers it seems.

I like it; I'm sure it will turn out even better than the rendering.

Kings Creek:New images. The towers shown are residential (condo).

The site Trammell Crow Residential purchased is unrestricted in terms of zoning, use, height and density, according to HFF.

The filing of a permit seems to indicate the company plans to move ahead on the tower, although representatives from Apache declined to comment on the permit and said the company has no immediate plans for the site. Apache's current headquarters is nearby at Post Oak Central, where the company occupies nearly 500,000 square feet.

Uh what? Thats in Kingwood? Wow, never in a hundred trillion billion years would I think anything like that would ever be built there. I grew up in Kingwood so seeing that is quite interesting and surprising, wow.

Well after looking it up, its not really in Kingwood, more so in Porter but still, thats crazy.

More evidence that Houston's Not Dead comes in rumors of an announcement tomorrow that Air New Zealand will begin service to Intercontinental. The All-Blacks are on their way.

Make it official:

I must admit to being surprised that the permit has been filed for the Apache Tower. That one was rumored to have been back-burnered indefinitely.

Those Lofts developments really look like they want to be built in Galveston.

HBJ has the formal announcement of construction on Block 365. It's only 5 stories, though. No name...

River Oaks high-rise getting a makeover

New Yorker Richard Leibovitch says local developers advised him to demolish the River Oaks Luxury Apartments - the aging midcentury high-rise his firm purchased last fall - and build two side-by-side towers with upward of 600 units.

His firm, New York-based Arel Capital, decided instead to redevelop the 1967 structure with fewer but larger units for a luxury condominium project. During its heyday, the developer says the 17-story apartment building at 3433 Westheimer was iconic for its "exclusive address, expansive grounds and Miesian-style architecture" with its steel frames, curtain walls, prominent use of glass and open interiors.

The building began to deteriorate over time, with aging plumbing and yellowing walls.

"What we wanted to do was basically renovate this building and bring it back to its old level," Leibovitch said in an interview. "We are taking the bones of the building and bringing it into the 21st century."

Construction is underway on the 84-unit condominium project. The project will retain the original footprint on the three-acre property along Westheimer in the heart of River Oaks. Initial renderings show a contemporary-style building with floor-to-ceiling windows and terraced gardens all around. The design includes panoramic views, corner balconies and large roof terraces. Floor plans will range from 1,500 to 9,000 square feet.

The River Oaks is slated to be completed by fall 2016. A sales center will open in May.

Houston's hotel building boom will see it surpass Dallas in terms of number of available rooms, based on construction already in the pipeline. More rooms are proposed but may be backburnered for a while:

I like it, but I liked the original exterior better.
