ALEXAN MEMORIAL APARTMENTS ARE HEADING TO RICE MILITARY A group linked to Dallas developer Trammell Crow recently filed plans with Houston’s planning commission to prep the shaded 2.5-acre parcel shown on the map between Sandman and the dead end of Reinerman St. for new apartments under the Alexan name. The complex would be backed by a ramp that diverges from the north side of Memorial Dr. and neighbored by a 3-story building that forms part of the DePelchin Children’s Center’s main Houston campus. Ordered off the site to make way for the new construction: some parking for the adjacent adoption and foster care center and a vacant, H-shaped office building to the west.

I hope this is not the Hillside condominiums.
@chifafa. It is not Hillside–it’s the abandoned DePelchin building directly to the east.
I always liked to go to that site with the dog in the winter; not sure why, but because of the slope, mixed with the cold air, it made me feel that I was not in Houston. It was not a well known location unless you lived in the neighborhood, though I did not. Others also played with their dogs there. Another cool hidden spot bites the dust.
Any idea how many stories it will be?
This makes me feel sad because I will no longer feel like I’m living in a neighborhood
The traffic will be awful
Hopefully they will use a real address, and not 201 Shepherd Dr., because it won’t be on Shepherd.
How many stories tall will this new apartment building be?
So DePelchin did what it swore it would never do, and sold that land. Those 150-year-old streets won’t support that kind of traffic. It’s going to be awful in that quiet neighborhood.
That is all we need is another apartment building in Houston. Seriously, we have enough! Stop with all the construction,noise and traffic.
