HOUSTON | Texaco Building Redevelopment | 38 fl | Prep

Description:Provident Realty Advisors plans to redevelop the old Texaco HQ into luxury apartments, pre-development work is currently in progress. In addition to that, they also plan to build a yet-to-be-officially-announced, 38-story apartment tower and parking garage behind the building. Retail and tunnel access will also be included. Hnedak Bobo Group is the architect. There have been many other proposals in the past for the Texaco Building and the vacant lot behind it, but they all fell through.

Last week, before the renderings were found, HAIF user brijonmang shared this information:

I'm sure it would've looked taller without the surrounding towers. ( Like BG Group Place )
1111 Rusk is 70m so this looks to be about 145m.

This is great news! Getting more market rate apartments and condos into downtown Houston has been a big wish for many!
