There are tenants already signed.

Should this thread be split for each tower? It maybe easier to track especially if one tower is complete before the other.

The older garage will be demolished and the new residential tower will be built in it's place.


As for the residential tower, some murmurings on HAIF about renderings out there as there are none public at present...

c/o 'brijonmang'

Just got sent a picture of a rendering for block 42 and unfortunately I can’t post it yet but I can say with confidence I think you all will like it. It matches the massing of the top down view blakevirgilio posted a few pages back. The wall facing market square is all glass with a little angle setback at the base of the glass. I’ll post it when I’m given the ok.
The teaser they were referring to...


In a reply to another poster, they wrote...

Quote:
I think it’s (the massing image you posted) a good representation of the building. I only have one picture that’s black and white and it shows the glass curtain wall which I matched with the Market Square side because of the bend in the facade. The other material might be limestone or marble or slate...some kind of stone. It’s a brick/paver pattern but the pieces are larger than brick.

Turned out to be an inaccurate height count by Emporis.

Hines reveals designs for downtown apartment tower

Quote:
Houston-based Hines, the 61-year-old international real estate firm that's been involved in 29 developments in downtown alone, plans to start construction next month on its newest hometown project: a 46-story apartment tower the company says will be its most impressive residential development yet.

"This one's very special," said Kevin Batchelor, senior managing director with Hines. The cost of the project per unit, he said, will be the company's highest to date for a residential tower in Houston.

The building, which will be called the Preston, will go up at the corner of Preston and Milam streets on the site of the former Houston Chronicle garage. It will be the tallest residential building downtown, and its design will give it a distinct place in the city skyline.

The design sites the building diagonally to Houston's street grid, providing wider, uninterrupted views from the units, said Jorge Munoz, principal of Munoz + Albin, the architecture firm chosen to design the tower.

"It became very clear to us that by rotating the tower it would not only capture better views for the residents, but we would open up an urban plaza within our site," Munoz said.

The design also takes into account its location kitty-corner to two important neighbors: Market Square Park to the north and a new Hines office tower under construction to the south.

The building, which will have 6,800 square feet of street-level retail, will share the block with the historic Hogg Palace condominium building fronting Louisiana Street.

The new tower will be loaded with amenities and pricey finishes. The 373 units will have floor-to-ceiling windows and quartz countertops, stainless-steel Bosch appliances, wide-planked wood flooring and custom Italian-made cabinetry.
