Regarding those trees - an observation from astrohip on HAIF

Quote:
I walked over today, to get a closer look (and came back drenched--it's hot!). It looks like they're trying to save the trees. I don't know if they're going to move them, or build barriers around them, but it's definitely not your typical "doze 'em to the ground" process. Lots of them have those dirt walls around them.

New rendering from Loopnet profile for building. It would be the glass tower closest to the railroad tracks.

Memorial City Mall Redevelopment - Memorial Town Square

https://www.papercitymag.com/fashion...mation/#406787

Quote:
Memorial City Mall Transformation Is Only Beginning With New Open Air Center — An Inside Look at Memorial Town Square and What Else Is Coming

The Bigger Move From an Enclosed Mall Will Bring Plenty of New Restaurants, Walkable Lands and Even a Potential New Hotel

BY CHRIS BALDWIN // 08.03.22

There are many struggling malls, places that are a shadow of themselves, still just sitting there as almost dying relics of shopping past. Memorial City Mall is not one of them. It ranks second to the Houston Galleria in sales per square foot. It is still a very successful, profitable hub.

Many business advisors might say leave well enough and just continue to take in the steady revenue. MetroNational president Jason Johnson and the family that’s helped shepherd this mall since Johnson’s grandfather started building it in the late 1950s knows better.

The future is coming. In many ways, it’s already here. And Johnson and MetroNational are determined to be ready for it. Get ready for Memorial Town Square, a new 27 acre mixed-use development that will turn the old Sears section of Memorial City Mall into an outdoor shopping center. This will be a new look for Memorial City, a land of lush landscaping, unique stores, health and wellness centered in some ways, definitely restaurant driven.

With construction set to start late this year, Memorial City’s new Town Square (the name is very intentional) could open by late 2025.

“To me this is really an opportunity to make it very intimate, very walkable, very comfortable whenever you’re coming in — day or night,” Jason Johnson says of what’s coming at Barryknoll Lane and Gessner Road.

Very cool but parking is going to suck big time. It's already bad with the huge lot there now. That will be gone but with more activity. Hopefully a garage is in the plans.

Based on the renderings, it looks like there are several garages - one obscured by the three story buildings immediately south of the "Town Square". Another is just south of that for the hotel near the intersection of Gessner and Barryknoll. It also looks like the office tower and apartments would share a garage, just east of the hotel, wrapped by the apartment building.

Found by user BEES?! on HAIF - the potential of an incentive plan offered by the Downtown Redevelopment Authority to convert underutilized office buildings to residential.

Quote:
In their meeting from June 2022, the DRA appears to be putting out feelers to find building owners who are potentially interested in participating in what they’re calling an “adaptive reuse feasibility study”. It sounds like, down the line, they want to launch a program to incentivize redevelopment of underutilized office buildings into residential.

This is what they said:

To begin shaping an adaptive reuse incentive program, Central Houston Inc. (CHI), in collaboration with the Downtown Redevelopment Authority (DRA), seeks to identify building owners, within the Downtown Houston boundaries of the DRA, interested in participating in an adaptive reuse feasibility study. This is the first phase of a process that is meant to lay the groundwork for an Office Conversion Program, designed to incentivize the rehabilitation and repurposing of underutilized office space in downtown buildings within the boundaries of the DRA.

At this juncture, we are seeking to gauge interest in the initial consideration for the study. We will use a broad set of criteria to identify candidate buildings, including consideration of [ vacancy rate over time, market position, location, overall square footage available, full floor availability, property value performance, access to mass transit, walkability, existence of past building feasibility studies]. To warrant full consideration, building owners will be required to provide design, engineering and financial data on the buildings for the study. Once we have identified buildings/owners we will return to the Board to request authorization to produce a feasibility study – addressing economic, design, and engineering variables -- through a Request for Proposal (RFP) to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the reuse opportunities within each building envelope and the financial challenges in realizing specific adaptative reuse opportunities.

The meeting PDF is here: http://www.downtowntirz.com/downtown...ok-6.14.22.pdf

The bit about the feasibility study is on page 40.
1801 Smith is already undergoing such a conversion without any incentive program.
