Here’s a view of the 28-story condo tower New York’s Handel Architects is designing for Regent Square, the 15-acre mixed-use project GID Urban Development Group is planning for North Montrose. The 450,000-sq.-ft. tower is meant for Regent Square’s westernmost reaches: the corner of West Dallas and Greenwich Place, just east of the College Memorial Park Cemetery.
Each of the 150 condos in the building has a balcony. All the units on the western face, shown above, have indented double-height outdoor spaces. The sleek eastern face, looking toward Downtown, is very different: It has a floor-to-ceiling curtainwall. Handel expects the building to be LEED-certified.
At the bottom of this rendering: a new diagonal street connecting West Clay (toward the left) with Regent Square itself (to the right). West Dallas runs from the upper left of the image to the lower right. All those trees on the left of the image are the cemetery.
Also included: a 15,000-sq.-ft. “amenity deck” on top of the parking garage and 10,000 sq. ft. of amenity spaces indoors.
Look! Vertical plantings!
