Luxury high-rise apartments planned inside the Loop

Houston Business Journal by Jennifer Dawson, Reporter
Date: Friday, September 23, 2011, 5:00am CDT



PM Realty Group LP plans to build a 35-story apartment tower on a prime site inside the Loop, where the Confederate House, formerly State Grille, served diners for more than 50 years.

The Houston-based company acquired the 2.6-acre site on the northeast corner of Weslayan and West Alabama Aug. 22 for an undisclosed price from Interfin Cos., which assembled the tract five years ago with no specific plans for development.

“We were actively out looking at sites,” said Roger Gregory, PM Realty’s CFO. “This was the site we really felt was best-suited for high-rise multifamily.”

PM Realty’s development site is a stone’s throw away from the 10-acre Willowick Court Townhomes, which were recently acquired by an affiliate of Martin Fein Interests Ltd. as a site for new apartments, townhomes and large residential units.

PM Realty’s project — its first multifamily development in Houston — will include 250 units ranging in size from 850 square feet to 3,200 square feet.

This will be the company’s third high-rise residential development. The Heights at Park Lane, a three-building project in Dallas that includes a 20-story structure, was finished in 2009. The 24-story 1400 Hi Line project is currently under construction in Dallas.

Site is prepped and ready to go!

Unique Design on Proposed Inner Loop Tower



Quote:
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.

2925 Weslayan officially breaks ground



Quote:
Houston 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.”

It's under construction. The footings have been poured and work should be moving vertical soon as columns are formed for the first floor. Hasn't been the fastest one out of the gate but it's goin'!

I took these last week. I should be able to see this one from my window within a month- it's now visible from the Loop 610 and US59 (now I-69) interchange
