Construction for the fourth Energy Tower and Stream building in the Woodlands to start August 29

http://www.bisnow.com/commercial-rea...ateway-market/

Quote:

There's just something about Aug. 29 that developers can't resist. (It's Michael Jackson's birthday, that's all we can think of.) Two office towers are breaking ground that day: Stream's The Reserve at Sierra Pines II and Mac Haik's Energy Tower IV. Managing director Paul Coonrod says 154k SF Sierra Pines will be one of the largest blocks of Class-A space available in The Woodlands. It'll also be the tallest tilt-wall project in Texas (and possibly the country) when it delivers next August. It hasn't locked in any tenants yet, but the 25k SF garden might draw some in. Check out more info here.

That CyrusOne building looks slightly odd.

The two acres at Holcombe and Cambridge look like they're for the Parklane, if I've got the location identified correctly.

It's adjacent to The Spires. Like The Parklane further north, there have been plans for additional towers since the first was constructed.

Contractor selected for Houston's second convention hotel

Balfour Beatty's naming means this project is getting more and more real. Q1 2014 for start of construction.

toxteth o'grady Aug 23, 2013 7:05 PM

The HBJ is also reporting that nonresidential construction volumes in July are lagging behind last year, while the rest of Texas is up by 60%. That means Houston's new construction represents only 10% of the state (usually it's a quarter to a third of the state. Anomaly? The HBJ keeps talking about land and labor being in short supply for projects.

Nothing wrong with the quote, nothing wrong with you using it in your sig. I know the quote was not a reflection upon the trees and had no connection to the pictures, just making an observation. Sorry for the distraction, let's get back to discussing Houston architecture.

University of Houston-Downtown launches construction of $16.5 million welcome center/garage

The University of Houston-Downtown is getting a new garage and a new look, with construction beginning just as the fall semester arrives on Monday.

The 1960s-era garage for faculty and staff, on Girard street near Travis, is being demolished to make way for the $16.5 million project. School officials say it will include a new four-story garage, with a top floor with offices for admissions, testing, veteran, disabled student and tutoring services, along with a new state-of-the-art welcome center.

The glass-enclosed welcome center, which will serve as the main entry point to the university for all visitors, students and parents, will be angled to offer a breathtaking view of downtown Houston. It will include a theater for orientation before walking tours commence.

The project is expected to take 12-15 months to complete.

The timing of construction may seem odd, since the fall semester is about to get underway, but officials say student parking will not be affected. The garage that is being torn down provided parking space for faculty and staff, who will park in temporary lots on Main Street just north and west of the College of Business building. These replacement lots are newly resurfaced and will be ready for use starting Monday.

The student parking garage next to the College of Business on Vine Street is sold out during the day. Students are still able to purchase passes for after 5 p.m. in that garage. Apart from the Vine Street garage, students have three lots to choose from: the Washington Street lot, the Daly Street lot and the San Jacinto Street lot. The Naylor Street lot, formerly used to be for students, however, will now be used by faculty and staff.

Roughly 14,000 students are expected for the fall semester on the downtown campus.

With Texas one of the few bright spots in the U.S. economy, the skyline of swaggering Houston is where the action is as builders and global oil companies, from Phillips 66 to Exxon Mobil Corp, look past previous busts and spend billions on gleaming new buildings.

The U.S. shale oil and gas revolution - which has already changed industries from railroads to pipelines and refineries - is helping drive the voracious appetite for office space needed for the expanding workforce in the world's energy capital.

Demand is so hot that Houston is one of the few places where banks - including Wells Fargo & Co, which is seen as one of the more conservative big banks - will loan money for a new building without demanding developers first have a tenant.

"Houston is booming and bar none the strongest market in the United States of America," said Joseph Sitt, chief executive of Thor Equities, which has two projects underway in Houston.

There are some 56 office buildings totaling at least 11 million square feet under construction in and around Houston, according to real estate services firm CBRE Group Inc. That is equivalent to 190 football fields.

Well, I now have a new phrase to add to my lexicon - "horizontal construction". Admittedly not the same as going vertical, but it seems to be a precursor.

Developer talks Museum District's upcoming artsy high-rise

"...Featuring an artsy, helix design, the luxury 42-story tower is planned for the Museum District, just northwest of the 35-story Parklane on Hermann Drive. Houston-based Tema expects to begin horizontal construction in October..."

toxteth o'grady Aug 27, 2013 12:40 PM

That Reuters article is nice (and getting a list of those 56 office buildings would be cool). They fret over the price of a barrel of oil, but that hasn't reflected supply and demand for years. And now there's sabre-rattling going on over Syria.

As soon as the developer can get the permit approved, initial construction will begin and will eventually add 34,000 to 41,000 square feet to the structure at 1111 Rusk. Estimated time to obtain the permit is about two to four weeks, the developer said.

The building will cost about $95 million to redevelop, said Kip Platt, developer and partner with Provident.

First units are expected within 13 to 14 months and completion is set for 20 to 24 months after construction.

The high-rise gained an incentive through the Downtown Living Initiative program and will be connected to the tunnel system. In addition, the building’s historic façade will be repaired using funds from the TIRZ No. 3.

The project's unit count is 309 with an average unit size of about 1,065 square feet. The plan also includes about 8,000 square feet of ground floor retail and a 550-car garage.

Apparently, they're only moving ahead with the shorter Phase I. Phase II, which had been contemplated at possibly 38 stories overall, appears to be only 29 stories, according to the update inthe HBJ. They're about 3 months into design for Phase II.

What the heck are those two renders for? The Texaco building redevelopment? I hope not, I hope they build that tall residential in that pit behind the buildings, instead of that short thing. And Im super glad to see that something may be done with those beautiful buildings, theyve been in limbo for so long. Kinda retarded that they didnt use a Houston background though for the render, lol

It is a 2 phase project, that I belive is the pedestal for the tall tower.
