Are those office buildings?

I never realized Uptown's skyline was that spread out.

I'm not sure exactly what your question was. But it looks like there's three highrises and one midrise in this project. No idea on the floor count. As for the heights, I'd estimate that the tallest building is 400 to 450 feet, and the two shorter buildings are around 350 feet. The shortest one seems be around ~150 feet or so. This would be by no means the tallest in Uptown, but it would be one of the taller ones, probably in the top 5.

There are 4 buildings that have been discussed for the River Oaks District.

They include a 35 story condominium tower, a 26 story hotel (some have stated it would be W's Houston location with condo units), 12 story Le Méridien hotel and a 10 story office building.

See this article from the Houston Business Journal for more. It states that groundbreaking would occur in late 2008 and would be completed at some point in 2010. This would be built directly next to the High Street Houston project which should be completed beforehand.

It's a very aggressive proposal and it will def. spread out the uptown skyline if it is built.

If you're interested in some early renderings then check out this page.

Also, a preliminary two-level leasing plan from the developer's site.

Ground level

According to an insider that posts regularly on HAIF, clearing of the current Westcreek apartments that currently occupy the site will begin in late 2008 with groundbreaking occuring in January of next year.

That sounds about right. I had a co-worker that lived in Westcreek that sayed the project was suppose to start in January '09. I can't remember when he said the place was getting the wrecking ball.
