Developers plan Upper Kirby high-rise

A locally based developer that builds upscale apartment towers in urban locations around Houston and across the country is planning its newest project in the Upper Kirby area, potentially adding more than 300 units to a site along Kirby Drive. Details are still being completed, but the project is expected to rise more than 30 stories and have restaurants on the ground floor, David Ott, development partner of the Houston-based Hanover Co., said late Monday.

The company is seeking approval from the city to develop the project with reduced building lines along Kirby and Kipling streets in order to allow the building to sit back farther than required along Steel Street, which is lined by a canopy of decades-old live oak trees. The company's intention, Ott said, is to do "everything possible to save the trees." "We're going to set back further than is required on Steel to give the existing tree canopy as much room as possible to survive," he said. The high-rise is being planned for land that houses two retail buildings and an older apartment complex. A portion of the apartment complex is not part of Hanover's project. The tower will sit just off Kirby on the western side of the property, with a retail building fronting Kirby and creating a pedestrian plaza between the two structures. Ground-floor retail will be in both buildings. Hanover, which is under contract on the 1.65-acre property, is scheduled to close early next year and begin construction in the summer of 2015, Ott said.

Houston developer’s long-awaited apartment tower in Upper Kirby underway

Hanover River Oaks — a luxury apartment tower originally proposed in 2014 — broke ground in Upper Kirby last month, according to Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP.

HFF announced Jan. 4 that it represented Houston-based Hanover Co. and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management to capitalize the equity and construction financing for the project’s development. HFF’s team representing Hanover included Managing Director Cortney Cole, Executive Managing Director Scott Galloway and Director Dustin Selzer.

According to HFF, Hanover River Oaks will have 370 residential units and nearly 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Units will average 1,172 square feet and include such features as stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, garden tubs, computer niches and/or dry bars, floor-to-ceiling windows, and faux-wood and tile flooring throughout.

The first units are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2020, according to HFF.

The tower also will feature a rooftop pool with sunbeds and poolside cabanas, outdoor grilling and dining stations, 24-hour fitness club, clubhouse with lounge seating, catering kitchen with private dining room, private theater, landscaped garden courtyard, water wall garden, pet washing station, 24-hour concierge and controlled-access parking garage, per HFF.
