Houston developer plans new luxury condo tower in River Oaks area

Quote:
Giorgio Borlenghi is planning to construct a new luxury condominium tower in the River Oaks area.

The long-time Houston developer — well-known for building high-end office, hotel and condo buildings in Uptown — will begin pre-sales Aug. 25 in his first condo project inside the 610 Loop.

Villa Borghese will rise on a city block bounded by Bammel Lane, Earl, Sackett and Philfall streets, just east of Lamar High School near River Oaks Boulevard and Westheimer Road.

Borlenghi, the founder of Houston-based The Interfin Cos., purchased the property last year for an undisclosed price. Currently, there are about 20 older homes on the site, all commercial businesses ranging from a restaurant, hairdresser, doctor’s office and shops. Most of the homes will be moved to new locations around town, Borlenghi said.

Borlenghi plans to sell half of the units before breaking ground a year from now. Construction will take two years to complete, which means delivery will be in the second half of 2019.

Nice tower but it does nothing for the neighborhood and especially the street.

I love that in Houston in a residential high rise that you can look out of pretty much any window in a unit and see several high rises or even a whole skyline. It's almost like having a view of a different city in each room.

Yeah, the base of this thing is pretty horrible. No street interaction at all, cut off by a doughnut parking lot and a guarded gate. Density without neighborhood interaction is useless. Of course, you can say the same for most apartment complexes that are gated and offer no street interaction, but you would expect that a generally square or rectangular development such as a tower would logically "meet the street" and interact with it. Besides, the same security equipment, personnel, and protocols that make a simple steel gate effective security could easily be applied to any other gate even if it leads into the garage at the street.
