What’s slated for the block just west of the Highland Village Shopping Center, tucked between the railroad tracks and the shopping area on Mid Lane where construction — on a rumored highrise — will reportedly “begin in a few weeks“? An affiliate of Stonelake Capital Partners owns an entire block at 4200 Westheimer, which it assembled in a series of 3 purchases completed in July of 2012. It’s currently the site of the Westheimer Oaks office complex and a still life of demolished modern apartment buildings behind it, accessed from Bettis St. Mid Ln. forms the western border.
Stonelake announced last year that it had hired Gensler to design a dense mixed-use development including shops, offices, apartments, and a hotel on the 12-acre site. It’s made no big announcements since, but the drawings shown here of a complex meeting that description are featured on the company’s website.
