2929 Weslayan: 40-Story Residential Tower By PM Realty


Recommended Posts

It it just me or does it seem like construction has really slowed down on this. Looking at the web cam and it has looked the same for over two weeks. 

 

I think the majority of the work left is interior finishes. I haven't seen the building in a couple months but I would assume the exterior is nearly finished.

I totally get that there are just a few small pieces on the outside that are not done and my ocd is killing me

I keep forgetting to take pictures of the inside of the building to share. My sister moved in about 3 weeks ago. No amenities have been completed other than the gym. The inside is quite nice. Nothing spectacular in my opinion but there's still some work being done.

this is an awesome looking building. a part of me likes that it stands out so much since it's pretty much alone in that area but i think i'd prefer it more in a denser or even just different area. either in uptown near 610 or along allen parkway/memorial.

 

regardless it is a great looking tower.

I do like this tower but I notice from a distance the rails blend into the building and it loses its "waterfall" effect. Going up 59 north it looks pretty plain from a distance. I think it would have looked better if the rails were more contrasting like a solid white.

After having gone several times to visit my sister at this building I've noticed they've had several construction issues. Multiple floors flooded recently after a few pipes burst; affected tenants were offered to walk away from their lease at no penalty or be moved to a different floor. The patio area on the ninth floor has a fairly large water wall that wasn't installed correctly and is now having to be completely rebuilt. The gas fire pit area is about to be replaced for the third time. They have yet to get all the elevators working. Last I was there 2 were functional and everyone seemed to be excited about having more than one. I've also noticed some concrete walls to be uneven in several areas, enough for it to be noticeable even with a quick glance. The trim and paint on many of the apartment doors and surrounding walls seems to have been cut and painted far too quickly; takes away from there being a quality feel. When I first visited this place everything seemed amazing about it, but the more often I go the more corners I notice have been cut.

I thought I remembered someone saying this one had an LED lighting effect?

Idk and I might be wrong, but I don't think it is a good idea to have led effect on a residential building…

One of Houston's newest luxury residential towers has snagged national restaurant Roka Akor Steak, Seafood & Sushi to anchor its first-floor retail space.

This will be Roka Akor's first Texas location, adding to its existing eateries in Scottsdale, Ariz., San Francisco, Chicago and Skokie, Il.

The restaurant signed a lease for 6,591 square feet in 2929 Weslayan, the 40-story tower at the northeast corner of Weslayan and West Alabama.

 

"Roka Akor will be a great complement to the amenities at 2929 Weslayan as we create the perfect feeling of home and luxury living environment," Wm. Roger Gregory, president of investments of developer PM Realty Group, said in a statement.

The multifamily building includes 254 rental units and 11,880 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Units range in size from 850 to 4,000 square feet with the average apartment leasing for around $4,000 per month.

James Namken, Kyle Knight and Edward Heap of the Weitzman Group represented PMRG in the lease. Mike Wheeler with Streetwise Retail Advisors represented Roka Akor.

Managed by JNK Concepts, Roka Akor offers Japanese cuisine with with a menu that changes seasonally. The restaurant's design prominently features a robata grill.

I didn't get a good picture as I was driving to the galleria. I was going to snap a better picture when I was on my way back home, but the lights were off by that time.

 

Yea, the pics aren't very good but it gives me an idea about the final product. THANKS! Looks, great!

I'm in China so I can't drive by myself anymore.
