The two buildings on the left are part of West Ave. and the one on the right is 2727 Kirby. The two projects are across the street from each other so it does look like one large project from that angle.

Thanks for all the pix too!

"While the national economy will be modestly affected by the tightening of credit, overall demand for energy and commodities will continue to rise, putting Houston in a strong position, Hines' Cover said.

The company is even looking into the future beyond MainPlace.

Hines is locking up a second location on Main Street, between Texas and Capitol, where it's considering another office building.

"It's a great opportunity, whether it's this cycle or the next," said John Mooz, a vice president for the company.

Meanwhile, its current focus is on MainPlace, which will be the company's "most sustainable effort in the city."


I suppose they are talking about City Centre in this article. Do we have any more information on this project? It's been a while since any news broke and there has to be further development on this project. Any spies out there?

No, it's blowing towards the camera. Flags have a tendency to flap like that - back and forth.

It also looks like Shenandoah might be getting in on the office building boom, thanks to its proximity to the Woodlands and location along I-45.

Shenandoah: Developer plans new office building in city


By BOB HOWIE
Chronicle Correspondent

Dallas-based Granite Development Corp., is planning a 10-story, Class A office building enclosing 250,000 square feet of space in Shenandoah.

The building, to be located just west of Interstate 45 near Café Adobe with access to the Interstate 45 frontage road, is the first of its kind in Shenandoah, but its construction depends on the City Council.

"The company is seeking a variance that currently limits the height of buildings in the Vision Park (business park) area to six stories," said Assistant City Attorney Manny De La Rosa. This building is planned for 10 stories and to start the variance process, the builder comes to City Council which then decides whether to recommend it to the Planning & Zoning Commission. In this case, that's what the council has done."

The builders are also asking Shenandoah to ease its parking space requirement as well as grant the variance.

"Currently, Shenandoah requires four parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of office space," De La Rosa said. "Granite Development is asking for three-and-a-half spaces per 1,000 square feet because their experience shows the four-space requirement to be too much. The request is somewhat supported by a study completed by the American Planning Association."

The request is expected to be back before City Council for approval in January.

This week's Houston Business Journal (11/30-12/6/07) mentioned a few more projects headed for the Energy Corridor.

The first being Three Eldridge Place, a 275,000 to 300,000 sq ft Class-A office building to be constructed within Eldridge Place. That property currently consists of a 12 & 14 story office building. There was no height or # of floors given, but I would guess it would be 12-16 floors based on the data provided. The construction was mentioned to begin in Spring of 2008.

Another project mentioned was that of Woodcreek Developments slated for Park 10, including a 6-story. 150,00 sq ft office building to be built regardless of pre-leasing. Construction should begin in late 2008 and be completed by Summer 2009. This is in addition to a small Comfort Suites motel and a new 90,000 sq ft tiltwall building to house the development firm.

It looks like Jetall Companies has taken hold of the Jennings Island (Seabrook) project now, launching a website for it and putting out feelers for buyers. The phone # is a recorded message that explains in brief the intent of the new developer and soon switches to a prompt for those who have interest to leave a message.

Crown at Memorial Hermann's Memorial City tower looks very close to topping out at this point.

That memorial building looks like a squat fat building... I think the crown is going to make it look fatter and out of proportion.

It's not turning out so well.
