HOUSTON | Tower at Hermann Place | 137m | 450ft | 42 fl | Pro




Design plans unveiled for new residential tower near Hermann Park

Quote:
August 23, 2013

Houston-based Tema Development, owner of the existing 35-story Parklane tower on the adjacent property, has owned the land for years. The new tower will be able to house 550 residents in 270 units.

The 42-story high-rise apartment complex has a complex and unusual design, some aspects inspired by buildings in San Francisco and New York City, said Michael Gooden, with Dallas-based Corgan, which designed the building.

The tower appears to lean because it “twists” 30 degrees over the 42 stories. This allows for closer views of Hermann Park for those on lower stories and the Houston skyline for those in the upper stories. The parking structure will be five stories and has an amenity deck on top, with pools and cabanas with a view of the city. Most units will have two balconies, one with a screen to block the bright sun and another with an open view.

Houston-based James Burnett, landscape designer for the Asia Society of Texas in the Museum District, designed the landscaping for the new tower.
