Atlanta’s Novare Group is getting ready to announce construction of its second SkyHouse apartment tower in Houston. According to the company, it’ll be “just like” the 24-story building (and adjacent parking garage) currently under construction on Main St. between Pease and Leeland downtown (shown in the rendering above, which in turn looks very similar to the company’s SkyHouse developments in other cities). Novare appears to have designated the building the River Oaks SkyHouse. Though it’ll be a bit south and west and on the other side of the tracks from the actual River Oaks, the new building will sit closer to its namesake than the River Oaks District mixed-use project currently under construction directly south of it.
Novare hasn’t officially reported the tower’s location, but the address listed for the project among data providers is 2013 Westcreek Ln., which likely puts it on the site of the 2 Westcreek Apartment buildings sold last year. 2021 and 2041 Westcreek, immediately to the west of the Target parking lot (and labeled Bldgs. B and D in the map at right), are at the northeast corner of Westcreek and San Felipe. They were vacated last November, in advance of an unannounced redevelopment project.
