Yuck, at least it's going on a parking lot though.

A 15-story office building is being proposed next to the historic Kirby House in Midtown.

Documents recently filed with the city’s planning department seeking a variance ask for a reduced building setback from the required 25 feet to 10 feet along Gray Street to accommodate the proposed building. The request said the shorter building setback line will blend in with the area’s pedestrian-oriented streetscape. Renderings from Jackson & Ryan Architects are included in the request. See below.

The historic building would be preserved, updated and incorporated into the proposed development, according to the city document. Two adjacent buildings on the site would be demolished. The entire property includes 62,000 square feet of land and is bounded by Brazos, Pierce, Smith and Gray streets. The owner of the property is Philip Azar who has a law office in the building.
