That new parking garage going up (or just about done) bordering both Block 42 and Block 58..is just ugly. All these nice buildings going up and there's that shitty thing.

That garage will become an office tower someday.

That changes everything then. From the looks of it now, it looks like a final "product" it's been painted with signage everywhere (The Capitol Tower garage was barren until Tower portion was built) so I assumed it this was it. Good so see there's more later and they will clad the garage later on.

This shot makes me realize what a buzzkill the old Albert Thomas building is. There could be an axis of park space running from City Hall toward the Wortham and the largest performing arts spaces downtown would be connected. Is that thing protected or does it actually generate that much income even though half of it isn't used? Too bad all the actual functions of AMC theatre and Aerial Theatre couldn't be squeezed into the end on the otherside of Bagby and the rest of that area reconfigured. Is this thing going to be there forever?

Houston First is looking into demolishing the Albert Thomas building (Bayou Place) as part of the Theater District Master Plan (see pg 27):

Katy, Montrose and Heights submarkets hot for future apartment projects, data shows

Quote:
While Houston has about 10,000 apartment units currently under construction across the city and surrounding suburbs, an additional 19,000 units could soon be on the way. A recent analysis of proposed apartment projects from Houston-based ApartmentData.com counts 69 proposed projects, with the most activity planned in the Montrose, Katy and Heights submarkets.

Bruce McClenny, president of ApartmentData.com, estimates when market conditions are favorable, as much as 75 to 80 percent of proposed projects move ahead and are completed. In "poorer economic times," such as when oil prices began to drop around 2014, McClenny says likely "50 percent at best" of proposed deals will move ahead.

"This is not by any stretch a puny proposed list," McClenny said. "It's kind of a 'middle-of-the-road list,' mainly because a lot are left over from the previous development cycle."

While Hurricane Harvey boosted Houston's apartment occupancy rates in the months following the storm, it also moved up the start of the next development cycle, McClenny said. He first predicted the last development cycle that started in 2013 would last until next year, but instead Harvey moved the cycle forward to mid-2018.

Right now, he said developers are trying to get everything lined up — close on land, go through the permitting process and line up funds.

Out of the 69 proposed projects, 11 are in Montrose while nine are planned for the Katy submarket. The Heights/Washington Avenue submarket has six proposed projects followed by downtown's five proposed projects.

McClenny expects to see more proposed projects moving forward.

Caydon buys more land for Midtown mixed-use project

Quote:
Australian developer Caydon, now building a high-end residential tower in Midtown, has acquired an adjacent parcel to complete what it says will be a three-block mixed-use development.

The company purchased a 30,000-square-foot property at 2711 Main. The site houses an art supply store, which will relocate in early spring 2019, the developer said Thursday.

"It's a phenomenal accomplishment for Caydon to secure the third parcel which brings us one step closer to delivering an exciting mixed-use district in one of Houston's most lively neighborhoods," Caydon principal Joe Russo said in a statement. "Caydon takes pride in creating developments that encourages a sense of community and supports people's health, happiness and a desire for a convenient lifestyle."

I don't think the image above is correct. That shows it facing Main St. (the tracks), two towers and the development looks bigger than a single block. I think it is this one:

Downtown's Lyric Market light show soon to be one of the most-Instagrammed things in Houston By Craig Hlavaty Published 11:22 am CDT, Thursday, July 26, 2018 Houston Chronicle

https://www.chron.com/news/houston-t...photo-15922765

Quote:
Houston real estate developer Jonathan Enav announced plans to open a 31,000-square-foot culinary and shopping destination months ago. Lyric Market is attached to the Lyric Centre in downtown's Theater District and is slated to open during the first quarter of 2019.

A spokesperson for Capital Realty Group told Chron.com on Thursday that they are currently in the process of rounding up an "all-star" group of at least 18 food vendors and four to six retailers. Earlier this year came word that the massive marketplace will be topped by a seven-level parking garage, clad in brilliant LED-lit panels.

Recently that feature, designed by Houston-based Munoz+Albin Architecture, began being tested at night on the corner of Smith and Preston streets. Local branding group Random Sky Studio captured images of the color tests earlier this month.

The rendering is checks out. Caydon has been acquiring land to build what's depicted - the Art Supply Block and the lot adjacent to the Greenstreet Building. They plan to abandon the streets in between to tie the development together. The rendering you posted is of 2850 Fannin, its currently under construction as phase I of the entire project.

Art Supply Block:



Greenstreet lot:
