Tall buildings to arise near River Oaks District

With most of the Westcreek apartments now gone and the River Oaks District well under way on a portion of the property, residential developers are staking their claims on the remaining parcels of land behind it.

Their plans include a cluster of tall buildings to house well-to-do Houstonians who can pay the steep prices that come with living next to one of the city's newest and flashiest mixed-use developments.

"People will be able to walk to restaurants, high-end retail and theaters. It's something that hasn't been offered in Houston," said Robert Bland of Pelican Builders, which is planning a 17-story residential tower on Westcreek Lane just north of River Oaks District, which is being built just inside the 610 Loop along Westheimer.

An office building, a hotel and two additional high-rise apartment building are planned on the remaining Westcreek property, Brand said.

The surge of development has led to concerns over increased traffic congestion in the area.

High-density development will increasingly take the place of low-rise buildings in desirable, close-in areas, Bland said, as more people want to live in the city center and land become more expensive.

Additional traffic, he said, is the price of progress. But he also points out that the number of new residential units proposed on the old Westcreek site won't be a whole lot higher that what was there originally.

"Surprisingly, if you take all the apartments that were demolished, the total number of (new) residential units is not going to be much more," Bland said.

Is it just the signboard, or are they actually moving dirt?

Robert Bland announced plans to build a luxury condominium project near the Galleria when oil was around $80 a barrel. The fact that it's now in the $50 range is not stopping the longtime Houston developer.

"I'm not in the oil and gas business, but our bankers and the people supposed to know say this is not going to be the 1980s and Houston will survive all this," said Bland, founder of Pelican Builders. "Yes, things will moderate a little bit, but as far as disaster on the horizon, that's not going to happen."

His project is a 17-story high-rise residential condominium to be called the Wilshire. It's on Westcreek Lane between West-heimer and San Felipe.

Bland said he plans to submit a request for building permits in April after architectural drawings are completed and start construction in May.
