Plans for the 3-story Campanile on Commerce apartments slated for the corner of Commerce and Delano streets are still winding their way through the city’s approval process, but a new strip of imagery shows what they’d look like viewed from the magnet school across the street from them. The idea is to put
220 120 units on the vacant 3-acre field extending directly north and east of the Baylor College of Medicine Biotech Academy at Rusk (which recently dropped its pre-K through 5th grade programs to go middle-school-only). A corner porte-cochere depicted above on the right would front Commerce adjacent to the complex’s entrance driveway.
Parking hooks around the back of the apartments, buffering them from the block-long warehouse building directly to their north:
Just east of center, a courtyard with a pool and pool-fronting cabana would hollow out the middle of the complex.
It’d be the third Campanile-branded senior housing property to land in Houston — though the first inside the Loop — after the Campanile At Justice Park on 43rd St. and the Campanile On Eldridge in Alief.
