The Chronicle is reporting it's a highrise, but no other details.

Hanover planning Upper Kirby project

Urbannizer just posted this on HAIF, so who knows?

Developer plans Upper Kirby high-rise project

A locally based developer that builds upscale apartment towers in urban locations around Houston and across the country is planning its newest project in the Upper Kirby area, potentially adding more than 300 units to a site along Kirby Drive.

Details are still being completed, but the project is expected to rise more than 30 stories and have restaurants on the ground floor, David Ott, development partner of the Houston-based Hanover Co., said late Monday.


The company is seeking approval from the city to develop the project with reduced building lines along Kirby and Kipling streets in order to allow the building to sit back farther than required along Steel Street, which is lined by a canopy of decades-old live oak trees.

The company's intention, Ott said, is to do "everything possible to save the trees."

"We're going to set back further than is required on Steel to give the existing tree canopy as much room as possible to survive," he said.

The high-rise is being planned for land that houses two retail buildings and an older apartment complex. A portion of the apartment complex is not part of Hanover's project.

The tower will sit just off Kirby on the western side of the property, with a retail building fronting Kirby and creating a pedestrian plaza between the two structures. Ground-floor retail will be in both buildings.

Hanover, which is under contract on the 1.65-acre property, is scheduled to close early next year and begin construction in the summer of 2015, Ott said.

Wow, love the project but with the remaining monetary incentives for downtown residential, I'm surprised this type of project went on Kirby Dr. I realize there is a highrise a few blocks down, but still....

Prosperity Hospitality Group is hinting to BisNow that they plan to build a hotel at Beltway 8 at I-10 on the site of a former PetSmart. No word on how tall or when:



There is also mention in BisNow of Building 9 at Research Forest Lakeside, which is currently under design up in the Woodlands. No word on why they skipped Buildings 6 through 8, but 9 will be 136,000 sf, which sounds like a 6-level building.

Toxeth - The picture you show (south of Katy Fwy) went with the news blurb under that picture in their newsletter...

"Maple Multi Family Land TX purchased 25k SF of land at 10615 Katy Fwy. Coldwell Banker’s David Hummel and Vince Elder repped the seller."

The land that Prosperity Hospitality Group bought is just across that property on the north side of Katy Freeway.

I know, it doesn't really make much sense to me either, but apparently Houstonians like high-rise amenities without the urban environment. Hopefully that mentality changes so we can start seeing some condo towers downtown.

Upper Kirby isn't urban enough for you?

Exact plans will be left to whoever gets the contract, but a conceptual rendering released Tuesday shows a sleek glass-and-steel addition that would place about 400 hotel rooms above the recently announced office building that will be home base for Houston First, the Greater Houston Partnership, the Greater Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Center for Houston's Future.

The 15-story hotel would sit on top of the planned Greater Houston Partnership Building and 1,900-space parking garage directly behind it and be directly north of the George R. Brown Convention Center.

You're right! Downtown isn't very urban, but Downtown/Midtown are still by far the most urban areas in Houston.

I really like this design. The area around Minute Maid Park should be filling up nicely in the next couple of years.

Will this new hotel have a brand and if so, any idea on which brand will operate this hotel?

Also, any updates on Hotel Alessandra?
