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.
