Part of it also is that buildings of certain heights don't necessarily phase people in some places like they might in others. A lot of the towers that have been built in the past few years are somewhere between 200-500 ft, minus some of the more substantial trophy towers.

I edited the information for Houston's section on Emporis for close to 20 years, and basically set up a project entry as soon as I saw something substantial in terms of information on HAIF. Other than HAIF, that was probably the most up to date website on local developments. That's why the number of projects that were under construction on that site was probably never under 60 for the past ten years, and there were at least 220 active proposals. In fact, just before it closed down last month, we were tracking 83 or 84 individual buildings of various sizes being built! Keep in mind that was within the city proper, and doesn't count projects that were being tracked around the metro!

There are more than a few issues with the current list of buildings on SSP for what it's worth. Some have individual project threads on this site, but no entry in the database here. Many structures are missing heights. Others are in the wrong status.

Some examples...

Texas Tower & Brava (still listed as The Preston) have been complete for a while.

This one ultimately ended up being a 17-story tower that was completed in 2021 and is now named Marathon Oil Tower. The building that previously had that name reverted to identifying by it's address of 5555 San Felipe.

Here are just a few that I know that are missing from the database but are either proposed or under construction. They are linked to either the HAIF or SSP thread, if one exists.

Under Construction

Houston Methodist Centennial Tower - 29 Floors / 511 FT

Texas A&M Innovation Plaza (Life & Horizon Towers) - 19 Floors / 268 Ft & 30 Floors / 488 Ft

X Houston - 35 Floors / 370 FT

Modera Waugh - 17 Floors

The Hawthorrne - 17 Floors / 215 FT

Haven at Elgin - 16 Floors

Proposed

2120 Post Oak - 43 Floors

1661 Tanglewood - 34 Floors / 522 Ft

3615 Montrose Blvd - 36 Floors / 512 Ft

Uptown Oaks - 34 Floors

Iconia Hotel & Residences - 39 Floors / ?Ft & 22 Floors (x2) 271 FT

Holiday Inn Express / Staybridge Suites Downtown Houston - 16 Floors

Completed but not in Database


The McKinley - 25 Floors

Bowen River Oaks - 25 Floors
A few more:

1550 on The Green - 28 Stories - Under Construction

Hanover Autry Park - 40-Stories - Proposed

The RO Residential - 37-Stories - Proposed

Farb Hyde Park - 20-stories - Proposed

Regent Square Phase III - 16-stories - Proposed

A 16-story mixed-use structure that is part of this development is making it's way through the permitting process.

East River

I'm kind of excited about this one. The Houston Maritime Center & Museum is moving from it's space adjacent to Forth at Navigation nearby at Navigation and Jensen to one of the new buildings that is being constructed at East River: Trail Head I. Since the earliest renderings, there has been speculation that the organization would either lease space or move into a purpose-built venue at this development along the Bayou.

Midway’s East River announces Houston Maritime Center will open in mixed-use project’s first phase

OCTOBER 17, 2022

Houston-based Midway, the privately owned, fully integrated real estate investment and development firm, today announced Houston Maritime Center has leased a 6,281-square-foot space in the first phase of its East River mixed-use development.

Established in 2000, the Houston Maritime Center (HMC) is an extension of founder James “Jim” L. Manzolillo’s unique experiences, personality, and lifelong association with the ocean. As a naval architect, Manzolillo traveled extensively, collecting artifacts from around the world. He eventually decided to share them with the public, and Houston offered a logical place to do that. Hence, Manzolillo began channeling his resources to create a museum to engage people of all ages in the history of ships and sea exploration.

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, HMC seeks to connect the community to one of Houston’s most valuable industries, offering a wide variety of exhibits that cover centuries of maritime history and the city’s impact on the maritime world. The Center also hosts a vast variety of virtual and in-person educational activities, modules, lectures, programs and events for all ages. Currently occupying an interim space at the confluence of Navigation and Canal streets in the East End, HMC will relocate to its new, larger space at East River in Spring 2023. Fittingly, their new space is in East River’s Trail Head 1 (Buidling F) office building, adjacent to the project’s bayou-side greenspace with stunning views of downtown Houston.

^^^ Nice updates. Here's a rendering of the entire project from Hindesky on HAIF:



Looks like the high rise ended up being shorter.

[South TMC] Baylor College of Medicine- Health Sciences

From Paco Jones on HAIF





Quote:
The Health Service Center project will consist of the construction of three buildings with variable basement levels. The buildings will be constructed in two phases. The garage will be constructed in Phase 1 and education and commons buildings will be constructed during Phase II.

The project will consist of following .
1. 10‐story education (health science tower)
building plus a basement level.
2. 3‐story commons building with a partial basement level.
3. 9‐story parking garage with a partial basement for detention. East side of the garage will include enhanced structure for the future 6‐floor extension of the education tower.
There's also a recent apartment complex near TMC that built a detention basement. Hopefully this will be a future trend in Houston where larger buildings are built on top of "detention ponds" or "basements".

The tower is approximately 594,826 gross square feet and the tower balconies are approximately 53,020 gross square feet. The parking garage is approximately 199,290 gross square feet. Residential floors will typically have private unit balconies on east and west elevations. Ground Floor areas will include the main lobby, building tenant services, office areas, fire command, security, mail room, maintenance, storage, loading dock, building fire and domestic water room, emergency generator, building electrical rooms, and drive through drop-off/delivery roadway.

1661 Tanglewood

Judge's order allows 1661 Tanglewood high rise to move forward

Diane Cowen,
Staff writer
Oct. 31, 2022
Updated: Oct. 31, 2022 6:03 p.m.

A Harris County judge has signed an order allowing developer Kendall Miller and his family to proceed with a 33-story condominium high rise on their Tanglewood property.

Miller's grandfather, William Farrington, developed Tanglewood back in the late 1940s and early 1950s and established office space at 1661 Tanglewood, where he and family members who followed operated their development and property management business. When Miller and his siblings, through their WMJK Ltd. business, first sought to demolish the one-story office building and replace it with a high rise in 2019, the community's Tanglewood Homes Association challenged them in court.

Last week, Judge Jaclanel McFarland of the 133rd Civil Court of the District Court of Harris County signed an order that finalizes what was discussed in court proceedings months earlier. That signed order allows the Miller family to use the 1661 Tanglewood site for residential, commercial or mixed purposes.

Miller said he expects to break ground on 1661 Tanglewood in April 2023.

9-story, dual branded hotel planned near Toyota Center in downtown Houston
Dallas-based Hall Structured Finance provided the construction loan.

Katherine Feser
Nov. 1, 2022

A Houston-based hotel developer will start construction on a nine-story hotel in downtown Houston after lining up construction financing in the latest sign of confidence in the hotel market.

PA Hospitality has obtained a $37.4 million construction loan from Dallas-based Hall Structured Finance to build the Home2 Suites by Hilton and Tru by Hilton dual branded hotel at 1514 Leeland Street. The property, located south of the Toyota Center and the George R. Brown Convention Center, would provide an option when the city's convention hotels are at capacity during large events.

PA Hospitality, a company led by Alif Maredia, will develop and manage the 221-room hotel, which is expected to break ground by the end of the year. Completion is planned in the third quarter of 2024.

1414 Waugh is the old Luby’s. Do I see correctly that Rosemont is moving to the ground floor?
