Pictured above on a grassy field standing in for its potential newer neighbors is the 17-story, Kirksey-designed highrise condo building Pelican Builders is planning for a 1.5-acre lot it bought from the site of the former Westcreek Apartments. It’ll go up near the taller SkyHouse River Oaks now under construction on another section of Westcreek Ln. just south of San Felipe (viewed at left from the adjacent Target parking lot). Nancy Sarnoff reports that financing for Pelican’s project hasn’t been finalized, but the company says it plans to begin constructing the project next summer, whether or not it pre-sells any units. It’ll take 2 years to build.
Previously, Pelican had announced its intention to build a midrise building and townhouses on the 2 Westcreek parcels it bought. But those plans appear to have changed: Pelican’s Robert Bland tells Sarnoff that in addition to the SkyHouse, the Randall Davis condo fronting San Felipe, and Peloton Commercial’s Westcreek Centre office complex, a hotel and 2 more highrise apartment towers are now planned for the remaining Westcreek lots.
