Signage up on Steel St. near the corner with Virginia is now advertising a planned 7-story condo midrise called Giorgetti Houston. The notice is standing on the northwestern section of the land vacated in 2015 by the Kirby Court Apartments; the project’s 2710 Steel St. address isÂ immediately west ofÂ the land previously tagged for a planned restaurant-footed apartment highrise complex from Hanover (a project which spentÂ most of 2015Â in investmentÂ limbo).
The would-be-nextdoor condo midrise, which is touting interiors furnished by Italian designer Giorgetti to match the name, appears to beÂ backed by Stolz Partners (which last MayÂ announced aÂ differentÂ 7-storyÂ condo project called The Sophie at Bayou Bend).Â Here’s a clearer look at the rendering, direct from the project’s fledgling sales website:
As with The Sophie, design firmÂ Mirador Group and builder-developerÂ Sudhoff Companies appear to be involved as well; meanwhile, Centerpoint recently snagged a strip at the back of the property for electrical easement purposes.
