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.

It seems sort of... awkward to me. Like a set of different towers that are merged with each other. It doesn't have a flow to it from bottom to top. It still looks pretty decent though.

It's "everybody outtada pool" for the last few tenants in the Kirby Court Apartments. This parcel next to the portion that got sold to Hanover may be slated for a different development.

Everybody Ordered Out of the Kirby Court Apartments on Steel St., on Account of They’ve Been Sold Again

They've finally closed on the land transaction. Funding in place; breaking ground this year.

Do residential highrises in Houston always have those car pick up/drop off alleys at the front?

I would say that most do not.

aight that's good.

I want to clarify I wasn't trashing on Houston there. In Century City in LA residential high rises have the same thing.

Received an update a few days ago. The developer plans to have their new Uptown high-rise rise simultaneously with this.

Plat was signed and filed to the County Clerks Office yesterday. I'll post it here whenever they upload the pdf. Now that the plat is signed, civil plans can go to the city/county (not sure if county is necessary or not) and after those are signed, construction should begin soon after. In fact, I'm pretty sure, for a project like this, city plans have been signed, or will be signed within the next couple of days. 

Wouldnt be be surprised to see this start to go up in the next couple of weeks.
