MIDRISE APARTMENTS, BEHIND THE WATERWALL The developers behind the flopped Turnberry Tower Houston gave up on plans for their Uptown 34-story plumber-friendly luxury condo project 3 years ago, but waited until last month to sell off the 3-acre site at the corner of Hidalgo and McCue, between the Waterwall Park and the Galleria. The new owner, Hines, says it plans to start construction early next year on 300 units in a 6-to-8-story apartment complex there. [Houston Chronicle; previously on Swamplot]
Awesome, but when are all these other Galleria projects going to get off the ground? Skanska, BLVD Place, BBVA, Millennium???
It’s hard to get excited when there is so much bs floating around out there.
Shame Turnberry Tower Houston never got built. I thought that was an awesome “Vegas styl” (excuse the term :) building
“when are all these other Galleria projects going to get off the ground? Skanska, BLVD Place, BBVA, Millennium???”
Whatch out for the shovels this Monday morning.
Perfect place for a high/midrise – actually, downright boring considering it has sufficient traffic lanes in proximity, is in an area suited to its size and has no older establishment nearby to torment.
I wonder why all these new apartment projects are midrises . . . It would be nice if a couple of them could be highrises. But I guess we should be thankful that any type of development is taking place at all.
