The tower has been complete since 2016. The concern is regarding the build-out of the interior.

FYI: I will be on a trip down to the area during Christmas week to visit family. I have been missing all of the development action lately, and plan on shooting a ton of photos.

HAIF is very up to date on what's going on, but this thread and the threads on SSP aren't as much. A lot somehow goes under the radar. I plan on trying to help fix that a bit when I get back, or at least helping revive the general developments thread in addition to this one.

That would be nice. HAIF has been annoying lately with one bitter user with a bitter past now bumping every thread.

Chron:Stonelake Capital tops out River Oaks area office tower



Quote:
..The 210,000-square-foot tower is part of the 11.5-acre Park Place | River Oaks mixed-use development at Westheimer and Mid Lane. It joins the The James and The Ivy residential buildings completed in 2016 and 2017, respectively...
This area around 610 and Westheimer (other side of 610 from the Galleria) has really boomed. I believe there's 3 separate "mixed use" projects in this shot, along with 4 mid/high rises in the background on the right.

Almost everything in the foreground (north of Westheimer and east of 610) is new with exception of that old SW Bell building on West Lane and the Target. Even Hotel Derek which was built in the 70's but totally re-clad ten years ago.

Randall Davis unveils design for Westheimer tower





Quote:
Randall Davis has finalized plans to build a high-end condominium tower in the River Oaks area, the Houston developer’s newest towering addition to the urban landscape.

Davis, whose most recent project was Arabella — a contemporary structure on San Felipe with glass balconies and a spa-like indoor pool — said the design for his new building will have a more classic style.

The planned 25-story tower, to be built at the southeast corner of Westheimer and Eastgrove, just east of Weslayan, will be constructed in white limestone with black and gold accents.

I know that the part of the city within the 610 loop is the densest area but is the density pretty consistent or no?

The loop isn't a great predictor of uniform density or greatest density.

According to zipdata, of the top densities (by zip) in Houston, only two are inside the loop, 77006 and 77098.

The most consistenly dense area of town is to the west/southwest, outside the loop.

Inside the loop, the density west of I-45 is about 7400 people per square mile. It ranges from 6000 (77007 and 77030) to 11,000 (77006). Qualified by that, I think it could be described as pretty consistent -- but it is still not the densest area.

The area inside the loop east of I-45 at 5000 people per square mile, a pretty sharp decrease from the west side of town.
