Is that a pool enclosed by glass that can be seen from the street?

Kinda looks like it could be, but it doesn't look like the site plan shows it to be.

Yes, it will be where the funeral home is. As much as I like it, it does seem kinda out of place in that part of town. Still looks cool though

The area may have some very nice single family neighborhoods but this stretch of Bering is nothing but multifamily housing.

Kick ass looking pool.

Yea I live on chimmney rock and woodway so I am very familiar with the area. Im just thinking in terms of San Felipe it seems a little isolated, with T.H. Rogers on one side and Tanglewood on the next. Don't let my negativity fool you this looks amazing especially if the pool is visible from the street.

This upscale mixed-use development' date=' located in the prestigious Tanglewood area, just west of Houston's Galleria area. The 8-story concrete frame building will include a spectacular rooftop pool terrace with a club room and outdoor living room, with views of the Galleria and Uptown Houston. [/size']

The design carefully integrates a detailed brick and masonry facade, acknowledging the soft pastel color palette of the surrounding Mediterranean heritage of Tanglewood. Bering adds a dose of luxury apartment living and boutique retail to activate the street scene of this upscale urban development.

per this past weeks Planning Commission Agenda, looks like the variances requested for setback on San Felipe and Bering were rejected. I think that means they're gonna turn it into garden style apts, lol

Wait... Tanglewood has a Mediterranean heritage? Since when?

I can't beleive that Zeigler Cooper actually allowed that on their website.

I'm not exactly sure what the status is at this point. I do know that subcontractor proposals were turned in towards the end of last month based on another progressive set of drawings.

The first level is parking and then one half has a courtyard and the other half has parking all the way up to level 8 in a courtyard like fashion. The parking is separated from the residental units by CMU walls.

They put the fence up and tore the building down today. I drove by around noon and the fence was just being finished, and there were two excavators sitting on the rubble. About half of the building was torn down at that point. I suspect it's all gone by now.

"Last month, Gables broke ground on its latest mixed-use project —Gables Tanglewood. Ziegler Cooper is designing the eight-story, 305-unit community at San Felipe and Bering, so we caught up with Scott Ziegler. He tells us it will feature 22k SF of retail (ground-level coffee shops and cafes) with six floors of apartments above. He says it was challenging figuring out the right combo of unit mix and retail. Plus, rooftop pools (becoming a signature for Gables) are always interesting to design. The project will open in May ’13."

One tower is fully complete, the other has the tower and the cab up, but not the arm.

Total count for the galleria at this point:

2 at this, 2 at BBVA, 1 at 3009 Post Oak, 1 at Brownway, 2 at Millenium Post Oak.

Hopefully we'll see ones at High Street, BLVD, and Five Oaks Place before the end of the year.

At this point, is the Galleria area the densest area of construction in Texas? I'm certain that it is in Houston.

This is fun to see.

And it's amazing that BLVD Place has none of them yet, considering it seemed like it was the one that was the most sure to be developed for so long.

Off the freeway, you can see them all clearly, and it really sets the mod of progress and change. I like it.

I think Exxon has the Galleria area beat by a wide mile, but that is just 1 massive project. Galleria is more indicative of the market recovery here in Houston.

I don't like making new threads, especially when I don't haw an article or rendering to show so figured this was the most appropriate place. On Voss near San Felipe, behind the Kroger something is going on. They have a movable crane and looks like they are drilling for foundation, anyone have any leads? This kind of work doesn't seem like it goes on for just an apartment complex.

Awesome shot. Was going to Kelsey Clinic in this area and it's surprisingly dense in this corner of Houston. 

From earlier today. Very little change since lockmat posted his pictures:

Thanks for the update. Glad this one doesn't look like your standard complex going up right now.
