Nice photos of the med center. The growth there is out of control.
Here are a few more projects for your map, WesternGulf...
Alexan Westheimer Square
2001 Westheimer Road (near Shepherd)
244 units, 6 stories tall
Houston Fire Museum (midtown on Main St)
You know, I really like the design of the Braeswood, given its location. The design seems to fit in with the MCMs that line Braeswood Blvd. as it heads to the east of the location.
I was under the impression there would be other uses for this superblock. Hrm...
Hi every1 im new to the forum just wanted to say hi.
By the way, I see official advertisements for the Highland Tower at the old Central Ford site. I hadn't noticed it before. Shows what appears to be about a 12-15 story tower done in beige stucco with a brownish-red rooftop (terrace?). Looks like it would be well at home around the Waugh/Allen Parkway/Memorial Drive area.
Yeah I saw that rendering too Hizzy albeit going 50 mph. It looked good from my short glimpse. Totally not the same development. I may have to go back, stop and get pics. (But I am sure you all have noticed how reliable I am with that. LOL. I'll try.)
It will be interesting to see if the Columbus Flats sell well. They are building 14 smaller units with most priced under $200,000 in the River Oaks/Montrose/4th Ward area.
I also noticed this new condo going up on J STREET!!! This will be one block off of Navigation Blvd on the east side of Lockwood. Man, the gentrification is spreading pretty far to the East.
That is pretty far east. To further that point, I was in the warehouse district yesterday along Leeland and was pleasantly surprised by the continued construction. It appears a couple of warehouses are about to be razed for what I assume will be more of Frank Liu's townhome projects.
Here is a pic I took yesterday for the Highland Tower east of the High Street development. Glad to know there will be 2 projects on the former dealership lot. There will be 99 residences in this project. The architect is Ziegler Cooper. www.highland-tower.com
The Sales Office
2727 Kirby off life support =)
2727 Kirby off life support =)
Woohoo! for both of those.
Glad to hear this!
First residential high rise to be built inside the loop in the last two decades?
Uh, what about the Royalton at River Oaks? What about the Museum Tower? What about the Robinhood? What about One Park Place under construction for the last few weeks?
That's some lazy reporting.
As an aside, I like the simple look of the Highland Tower. I also like the idea of some smaller hi-rises going up in the 10 to 18 story range. Those have always appealed to me. Now, if someone would just build one in midtown/museum district area on the light rail line...
I just went through the Highland Tower site. This actually wont be a part of the Oaks District or the High Street. Instead, it will be located behind those to the North (towards San Felipe). In fact, this tower is proposed to go near the corner of Bettis Drive and Briarglen Drive right behind the Briarglen. In fact, the same team (Pelican Builders and Ziegler Cooper) were involved with the Briarglen.
The best thing about this site is all of the proposals nearby that are on the locater map. They include;
The Oaks District (phase one with 2 luxury hotels, 300 residences, 80,000 square feet of office space, and 350,000 square feet of retail
High Street (luxury apartments and retail)
Another proposal by Pelican Builders (not named) behind the Briarglen and Highland Tower
Morgan Residential proposal for luxury multi-family
Coach Realty proposal for luxury condos
I like that one also =)
We need to update the front of this thread with all the projects again... update designs and all the new projects..
Also add in that Map WG setup =)
really want to get blocks set correctly under the pins on that map also
