When you drive by this thing, with how close it is to the street corner it looks huge, and it's only 5 floors high... 35 to go!

 

And I'll get some shots soon from a completely different angle atop another nearby building, where you can really see it impact the skyline (not the AT&T building unfortunately, haha)

 

OK, now that I promised I'd do this, hopefully that'll lock me in to actually getting it done!

Does anyone know home many residential highrises are currently under construction in Houston?

Under Construction

1. Skyhouse

2. The Sovereign

3. The Ashby High Rise

4. 2929 Weslayan

5. Hanover Post Oak in BLVD Place

6. Whiteco tower-may be completed

I think these will break ground soon

7. Astoria

8. Belfiore

Rumored

9. Hines Downtown

10. Hines Museum District

11. Texaco building renovation and construction of 38 story tower.

Not sure if you call it a highrise, but Emporis would... the 12 story Hanover Tower in Rice Village is moving forward. The garden store and small apartment building are now vacant and fenced off. Demolition should start very soon.

by all technical accounts 12 stories is definitely a high-rise. the city of houston considers anything over 5 to be a highrise.

I've always heard the definition of a highrise is a building where the floor of the top floor exceeds 75 feet. This is the point where the reach for ladder trucks is exceeded.

 

Depending on floor heights a 5-7 story structure can easily be considered a highrise. 12 is no question.

I didn't know this was under construction. Isn't this the 29-story circular tower?

Yep its under construction. Im not sure what floor they are up to but if you check the BLVD Place topic under Going Up, you can see it in SkylineView's pics.

 

It is 29 stories.

Once they finally got going this thing has really gone up fast! Puts the Soverign and even SkyHouse to a lesser extent to shame.

It's definitely starting to move now and is outpacing the sovereign but I don't think anything in town will beat out the sky house's pace

So which one do y'all think will look cooler once done (A poll perhaps)? 2929 Weslayan or the new 42 story twisting tower going up in the Museum District? They said there is a rendering floating around out there of that new one so hopefully someone "in the know" will post it here.

Wow thanks! I think it's just that I really like to bike ride around Houston and it feels like a scenic tour every time I see a new development along my path!

 

Feel free to distribute these images anywhere else. I've noticed my pics on a bunch of other forums and websites... It definitely is a compliment.  :)
