Several high-profile projects picked up demolition permits this week to begin clearing sites for a new Uptown midrise, a self-storage facility near the Heights and a new campus for the Center for Hearing and Speech.
Two permits were logged for the 1800 block of Post Oak Boulevard, the future location for a new mixed-use midrise building owned and anchored by Zadok Jewelers. Groundbreaking is slated for August, according to a press release, with tenant buildout in the fourth quarter of 2020. Michael Hsu Office of Architecture is leading the design for the 112,000-square-foot project, which is aiming for LEED Silver Certification.
The former location of Greensheet’s printing facility, 1690 North Loop, Houston, has been cleared for demolition as well. County records show the property is held by GreenSpace Self-Storage, LLC, a development and construction firm that launched in 2018 with the goal to build 50 self-storage facilities using repurposed shipping containers.
A permit was also filed for 3100 Shenandoah St., the former location of the DeBakey High School for Health Professions, which most recently served as a temporary location for Braeburn Elementary School, which was damaged during Hurricane Harvey. The Center for Hearing and Speech plans to break ground on the site soon for its new campus.
