Construction commenced earlier this week on Tema Development’s Hermann Park Residences you see rendered above. The 7-story building is going up at 1699 Hermann Dr. overlooking the park and a heartbeat or two east of the Health Museum, a little to the west of Tema’s 35-story Parklane tower, and possibly within earshot of the lions roaring at the zoo.
The Residences are intended to be the first of Tema’s three-phase plan for their 6.8 acre plot. That twisty 42-story tower Tema has proposed is still 4-6 years away, according to a company spokesperson.
This $75m project will have a total of 224 units, dispersed among studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments. Some will sport balconies overlooking the park, others will look down into a courtyard with fountain. A sky bar is planned for the top level; bike storage and electric car-charging stations nod toward a greener future, though the 144,000 sq.-ft., five-story parking garage acknowledges the status quo.
Corgan Associates of Dallas is the architect of record.
Hermann Park Residences is scheduled for completion late in 2016.
