Tower to rise on former Confederate House site

Houston developer PM Realty Group says it will break ground next year on a 39-story luxury apartment tower at the northeast corner of West Alabama and Weslayan.

The company won’t release renderings yet, but RTKL, which designed the building, “drew their inspiration from traditional architectural motifs but reinterpreted these in a fresh and contemporary way,” according to a press release. “The result fits well within the established upscale nature of the neighborhood and reflects a growing appreciation for quality design in today’s market.”

Construction on the 250-unit tower will begin in the second quarter of next year.

Unique Design on Proposed Inner Loop Tower



Quote:
July 3 2012


Here’s an image of the high-rise planned for the site of the old Confederate House restaurant (and later the State Grille). Developer PM Realty Group says it hopes to break ground on the 39-story tower in the third quarter, but it first needs to hire a contractor and secure a construction loan. The RTKL-designed building is planned for the northeast corner of West Alabama and Weslayan. It will have 254 rental units.

Boom! Height increase!

Apartment tower to soar 40 stories

Quote:
ton is getting another very tall tower.

This rendering is an image of 2929 Weslayan, a new apartment building that just broke ground at the northeast corner of Weslayan and West Alabama.

At 40 stories, the building will be one of the tallest residential buildings around and perhaps the tallest rental tower in the city. The project was 35 stories when it was announced last year.

PM Realty is developing the building. RTKL created the design, which the developer said is “inspired by a flowing evening gown.”

Glad to see Texas building up and not out. Perhaps in the coming decades we'll see real density and a decline in car dependency.

More Renderings, this should also now be in the Highrise Section because it's currently under construction.

The floorcount has varied from 35 to 40 as the proposal progressed. It was 39 floors at the time of the thread being posted.

I can never find this thread when I go looking for it... Now I know why- the building name is wrong, as is the floor count.

Mods.. can y'all change it to 2929 Weslayan, and the floor count is 40

last week:
