Assisted-living tower planned for Med Center area

Recommended Posts

The 48-year-old Bayou Manor assisted-living facility is building a new 14-story tower to offer more long-term health care services to its residents.

The $67 million tower, to be built at 4141 S. Braeswood Blvd., near the Texas Medical Center will include 84 apartments, under-building parking with elevator access to residences and 32 assisted-living and memory-support residences.

In addition, the tower will feature a pool and fitness amenities, dining venues and a 180-seat event center.

Interesting - another senior complex is going up at 4141 N. Braeswood:

Good eye. Hopefully the one across the street will be as nice as this one. They did a good job designing it I think:

The plan includes a 14-story high-rise with magnificent views of the Houston skyline, 84 new apartment residences, 32 spacious assisted living residences, state-of-the-art wellness and fitness amenities, exciting dining venues and a new 180-seat performance and event center.

Not bad

 

Agreed.   But when I read the name,  I was hoping for several (at least 3) towers spread over the campus.

Yeah the name seems as if there will be at least two towers not one and an adjoined lower "tower". I also don't care for how he pronounces Brazos.

There was a retirement tower planned in this area a few years back. It had a video too but different from this one. Is this the same location?

Found it. It is the same one http://www.houstonarchitecture.com/haif/topic/25205-assisted-living-tower-planned-for-med-center-area/?fromsearch=1

I drive by here pretty often and construction has already begun on new covered parking (the tower is going where the existing parking is.

Construction is well underway by now. A crane was constructed this morning and there were at least 8 cement trucks on the site about a week ago.

Also, I think we should move this thread to Going Up especially that it's not actualy in (or near) the Med Center.

I really like the rendering for this building. Im usually not much a fan of the dark brick it shows, but i like its contrast with the other materials in the rendering.

How's this one coming along?

 

Haven't noticed any cladding or much exterior work passed the tyvek. Next time I'm out I'll take some pics.

I would love to see several of these built in downtown. For the resident, they have a "walkable environment" that allows them independence without the need for a car.

Hopefully some day that will be true, but I think it would be pretty difficult today for them to suffice downtown.  Between the homeless everywhere, lack of grocery stores, and lack of more than one pharmacy, I think it would be hard for them (and the construction would make it difficult for them as well).  

 

I'm with you though.  In 10 or 15 years when there is a more urban environment in downtown, it would be great to see several of these downtown.

After years of planning and two years of construction, Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor will welcome its first residents to the new East Tower in early December.

 

New residents will move in floor-by-floor beginning with the first two available floors, four and five, all the way to the 14th. The building is estimated for complete occupation by early spring of 2016.

Is it just me or does this look like the Latitude Med Center?  Same architect perhaps?
