I’ve seen nothing to suggest it is either on hold or dead. They have pretty recently gotten to the point where the office floors would start.

Houston City Council finalizes $83.5 million investment in Buffalo Bayou Park
The city’s investment is part of a $310 million investment for the park, the largest gift in the city’s history for a park.

ASHLEY BROWN | POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 28, 2022, 3:57 PM (LAST UPDATED: SEPTEMBER 28, 2022, 5:55 PM)

Houston City Council voted unanimously to finalize its part of a $310 million investment into the redevelopment of Buffalo Bayou Park. The agreement is a partnership between Harris County and the Buffalo Bayou Partnership.

The city will invest $83.5 million, the county will invest $24 million, and the Buffalo Bayou Project has already raised $37 million and will continue to raise the private funds that's needed to complete the project. The project has also received $14 million in federal housing tax credit.

The city will contribute $37.6 million for Park Projects and $46.8 million for Non-Park Projects while covering 25% of the maintenance and operation of the park.

"This gift represents the largest gift to any park in the history of this city, ” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. "It will transform the greater East End, and the Fifth Ward community – you’re talking about providing additional connectivity in that area to pedestrian bridges," he said.

The project will include extending the hike and bike trail along Buffalo Bayou, two pedestrian bridges – the Gregg Street and Japhet Creek Bridge-that will connect the greater East End and Fifth Ward, new parks and trails, the East River development, the expansion of Tony Marron Park, a new Central Maintenance Facility, and a multi-family development.

Anyone else notice that this may not be located where UT is selling their 307 acres?

The BioPort campus might actually be located on Buffalo Speedway, in between Holmes Road and W. Airport Blvd. This would also explain the circular roundabout featured in the concept rendering. The roundabout is located about halfway to W. Airport on Buffalo Speedway.

TMC & TMC Helix Park

State of Texas Medical Center Address now available online.

https://youtu.be/HfWXI-JFF14

From the Texas A&M State of the University Address yesterday - two new A&M Facilities coming to the TMC.

Quote:
Finally, we are committed to developing programs that will increase our funding from the National Institutes of Health. To support this effort, we will construct two new research facilities in the Texas Medical Center in Houston.

The first of these – known as the TMC3 Collaborative – is a joint venture with MD Anderson Cancer Center and UT Health. The second is a $200 million dollar biomedical research building developed in partnership with the University of Houston. These facilities, along with the EnMed program, will attract international research talent and increase the prominence of our biomedical research portfolio.

UNITi Montrose

Exclusive: Apartment project focused on co-living arrangements to break ground in Montrose

By Jeff Jeffrey – Senior reporter, Houston Business Journal
Sep 29, 2022

The Shelter Cos., the residential development subsidiary of Dallas-based Civitas Capital Group, is set to break ground on its first-ever project, and it has chosen Montrose for what will become a 238-unit co-living development.

UNITi Montrose at 701 Richmond was designed as a nine-story, 199,320-square-foot multifamily midrise that caters to young professionals looking for high-end amenities in a more affordable setting. The first three floors of the building will be a cast-in-place parking garage, according to The Shelter Cos.

While the building will have 238 units, UNITi Montrose will have 381 available bedrooms for renters to lease. The idea is that the building will be aimed at renters looking for roommate living.

“For a lot of young people, there just aren’t a lot of options for places to live because rents keep getting higher and higher,” said Mark Drumm, managing partner and co-founder of The Shelter Cos. “We think this will offer a more affordable option in a highly sought-after area.”

Drumm said most of the units will have three or four bedrooms with a single kitchen and laundry area that all of the residents can access. The Shelter Cos. will help to line residents up with roommates to fill out each unit.

“It saves them the hassle of having to find a roommate, and each resident signs their own contract, so they are not on the hook for anyone else’s rent,” he said. “We believe there is a market for renters who just got out of college and are used to living with roommates.”

The building will also offer a number of “microunits,” essentially smaller-than-average studio apartments with their own, albeit “pint-sized,” kitchen. Those units will be between 320 square feet and 420 square feet and cost between 10% and 20% less than a traditional studio apartment, which is typically around 500 square feet, Drumm said.

3615 Montrose

https://therealdeal.com/texas/2022/0...mily-pipeline/

Quote:
So far, the firm’s Houston acquisitions are all focused on inner-loop properties, including a $130 million mixed-use development project, according to a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, first reported by Community Impact.

Construction on the 850,000-square-foot project will start in November 2022 and is expected to finish in February 2025.

The development is located in Houston’s Montrose neighborhood adjacent to the Museum District at 3615 Montrose Boulevard on the site of the former Bacco Wine Garden. The development will have a 36-story, 369-unit apartment building with 369 units and a 10-floor parking garage over a single floor of the residents’ entry and 5,000 square feet of retail. There will also be a 12,000-square-foot “amenity space” on the 11th floor of the apartment complex.

Permits have been issued for the foundation and other portions of the building in the past month and a half. Utilities are now being disconnected for the existing structure at this site.

Uniti Montrose has a nice set of light colors that are light to the eye, they will fit in well with the area and I like the architecture feature on the top with the circle in the square. This is a unique architectural feature that you rarely find in a building and it is nice to see a unique architectural feature that makes the building look different, while still working well architecturally.

3615 Montrose will be a high rise that will stand out in a generally single family home and mid rise residential neighborhood. I do not like these kinds of developments in Houston. We should reserve the high rises to high rise neighborhoods designed for them. This is an issue with Houston’s form of planning.

I'd worry more if there wasn't what seems to be a precedent for building taller or denser structures on or around this stretch of Montrose Blvd - especially since the Parc IV & V 12-story condo buildings across the street from this site have been there since the 60s. Where Hanover Montrose is now used to be a building, about the same height as the Parcs, and it was a 1950s building IIRC. It was where Skybar used to be. About the only exception is the tower behind La Colombe d' Or - but that's a given since the historic building for the hotel is on Montrose, and the only demolition required was for a 1990s era ballroom.

If anything, it seems the new wave of larger structures seem to be taking spaces directly along the boulevard - the commercial stretch. Even the larger and taller current proposals I can think of like WestMont at Westheimer and the Farb tower at Fairview embrace Montrose rather than retreat into the lower density areas.

What I'm interested in seeing is if the trend will continue. If it does, the Montrose cluster of highrises can expand and may eventually bridge the gap between the taller structures in the Museum District and the new ones starting to go up along West Dallas & Allen Parkway.

I thought this was only just now breaking ground - apparently this one is already underway.

Houston Endowment Headquarters

New Houston Endowment HQ brings brings the city one step closer to new age of modern design

Diane Cowen,
Staff writer
Oct. 5, 2022
Updated: Oct. 5, 2022 5:59 p.m.

Perched at the peak of Spotts Park, the new home of the Houston Endowment seems not quite anchored to the ground, a gleaming white bird ready to soar over the grove of oak trees below.

The work of Kevin Daly Architects, Productora of Mexico City and TLS Landscape Architecture, this modern structure will launch a new era for the endowment, which just finished moving from its longtime office space on the 64th floor of the JPMorgan Chase Tower. One more in a series of modern office and residential towers, this new Houston Endowment is a signal that — at least architecturally — Houston has taken another big step into a new age.

Created in 1937 by businessman Jesse H. Jones and his wife, Mary Gibbs Jones, Houston Endowment has grown to a fund of $2.57 billion. Each year, the endowment disburses about $100 million to dozens of Houston area organizations, focusing on public education, civic engagement, arts, parks and social services, as well as in response to emergencies such as Hurricane Harvey.

From cars passing by on Memorial Drive, the new $20 million building is a flash of white above the gentle slopes of a park filled with meandering walking paths and clusters of live oaks. If you feel like turning onto Waugh Drive for a closer, drive-by look, go ahead — you're likely not alone.

Visually, the building is bright and light, downright inviting. Its sculptured exterior of curved aluminum panels is combined with a unique trellised canopy made of rows of 3D ovals of perforated metal, angled to filter harsh sunlight while still allowing soft breezes to sift through.

What a nice building, and great to see net-zero architecture in a city that is so historically - and currently - invested in fossil fuels. Showing the rest of the country how it's done, frankly!

I like Dallas and Austin more, but Houston will always have the best skyline in Texas IMO.

What I like is the multiple skylines that you can see from many vantage points around Houston. I think Austin has an incredible downtown skyline, but not much else. The Domain is developing a skyline of its own, but it's about where Uptown Houston was in the late 60s. Some day the Domain in Austin will be impressive, I'm sure.

Sales underway for Satya’s luxury condo development Tiara on the Beach in Galveston

By Florian Martin – Reporter, Houston Business Journal
Oct 8, 2022

Houston-based Satya Inc. on Oct. 8 opened a sales gallery for its beachfront luxury condominium complex on the west end of Galveston’s Seawall.

Tiara on the Beach's design phase is complete, and Satya will now start working on obtaining all necessary permits, the company’s president, Sunny Bathija, told the Houston Business Journal.

He expects to break ground on the project at 10525 San Luis Pass Road late next year followed by first move-ins in the fourth quarter of 2025.

The condominium building will have 63 one- to three-bedroom units ranging from 1,661 to 4,306 square feet, each with 10- to 11-foot ceilings. Six of the floors will have nine units each, and there are seven penthouses on the 10th floor as well as two "penterras" on the third.

Units will feature wood-inspired and porcelain tile flooring, quartz countertops, gourmet kitchens with Thermador and Gagganeau appliances, and Italian soft-closure cabinetry.

The units will range in price from $1 million to about $2.8 million.

1617 Fountainview is more great Architecture for Houston. If Houston had built all of its high rises downtown, our downtown would be like Chicago. I think that would have been better for Houston.
