Giorgetti-Themed Condo Midrise Planned For Vacated Kirby Court Apartments Land

Giorgetti Houston, 2710 Steel St., Upper Kirby, Houston, 77098

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 is immediately west of the land previously tagged for a planned restaurant-footed apartment highrise complex from Hanover (a project which spent most of 2015 in investment limbo).

The would-be-nextdoor condo midrise, which is touting interiors furnished by Italian designer Giorgetti to match the name, appears to be backed by Stolz Partners (which last May announceddifferent 7-story condo project called The Sophie at Bayou Bend). Here’s a clearer look at the rendering, direct from the project’s fledgling sales website:

As with The Sophie, design firm Mirador Group and builder-developer Sudhoff Companies appear to be involved as well; meanwhile, Centerpoint recently snagged a strip at the back of the property for electrical easement purposes.

  • They are not fooling anyone. Sure, the first rendering is gorgeous. Innovative architecture and a stunning design. But we have done this dance before. When the hand goes out to get the funding, the next rendering will have hats and Juliet balconies instead of the cool inlaid open spaces. Then the offset window design will be all symmetrical and surrounded by stucco. The bottom floors will just open up to expose the garage and the landscaping in front of the building will just get paved over for future tenant parking. Nice try.

  • Oh, that condo projects in Houston would have a nice big setback like in the illustration! There’s no way that it will look like that in real life. The land is too narrow to accommodate any setback at all. Who are they kidding? I think they’re going to miss the September 2016 deadline…by a lot. Good luck.
