Description: Provident Realty Advisors plans to redevelop the old Texaco HQ into luxury apartments, pre-development work is currently in progress. In addition to that, they also plan to build a yet-to-be-officially-announced, 38-story apartment tower and parking garage behind the building. Retail and tunnel access will also be included. Hnedak Bobo Group is the architect. There have been many other proposals in the past for the Texaco Building and the vacant lot behind it, but they all fell through. Note that the skyline in the background is not Houston.

Last week, before the renderings were found, HAIF user brijonmang shared this information:

I'm really glad they kept the original Texaco USA HQ building with it's beautiful Roman-arched ground-floor entrance. The pictures don't do justice from the tastefully elaborate actual trim on the building. You should walk by and see it some time. It's special.

I really want them to build a maze of skywalks in downtown.

Over the next decade downtown is going to drastically change. Houston is changing so rapidly it is nuts.
