Wow really hope the second part gets built, that would be such a high density development.

Whatever happened to the Westheimer/railroad crossing grade separation study? Couldn't they just construct some sort of berm-tunnel over the tracks and have Westheimer go over the berm? I'm thinking cut-and-cover tunnel construction, just without the cutting. A berm crossing would be much less objectionable than a bridge one would think. On the east side of the tracks you might have to close the Westheimer/Suffolk intersection, but surely the Mid Lane intersection could remain open--the incline required wouldn't be so incredible. Do the same for San Felipe and Richmond. I think long term it would be awesome to cover the entire length of track in this area with a berm-tunnel to create a bike path and jogging trail above.

Love it. But wish they could have added brick to the parking garage adjacent to the new 2 building that's U/C. It would help blend it in.

These are the type of projects we NEED downtown!

these are the type of developments we need in Midtown And the near north side. Kinda wish montrose would keep its character but midtown would be awesome if built out like this.

Anyway, this has been my favorite residential development. I am sure It is going to have a significant influence on the area.

Any updates (pics) of the mid-rise and the fenced off section next to it? That's where the high-rise will go.

This one is now open and partially under lease

 

http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2016/02/dallas-developer-opens-first-luxury-apartment.html

 

 

 

StreetLights Residential is now finishing the first phase, called The James. The luxury apartment complex recently welcomed its first residents.
In June, StreetLights Residential broke ground on the second phase, originally called Azalea Court but now renamed The Ivy. The 20-story, 297-unit tower sits on two acres next to The James. The Ivy features larger two- and three-bedroom units, which average about 1,000 square feet. The units feature similar high-end finishes and amenities to The James, but will offer gas ranges and a rooftop pool with a view of downtown Houston that will likely appeal to a higher-end demographic. The first units are expected to open at the end of this year. Rents have not been determined yet.
“Houston is a great market,” Bakewell said. “It’s been very strong over the past several years. We like the market long-term, and we think it’s going to rebound (from the oil slump).”

Park plan 'still in play'

The chain-link fence surrounding a 1970s-era office complex at the northeast corner of Westheimer and Mid Lane portend the demolition of the vacant structures that sit on a pricey plot of Houston real estate.

The property owner purchased the development several years ago. On the back of the property, an 8-story apartment building called The James opened last year. A multifamily building with 17 stories called The Ivy is under construction.

Once the existing office buildings are taken down, it would be expected that the owner, Stonelake Capital Partners, would have plans for another building, maybe two. Yet Stonelake says it will develop a 5-acre park at the front of the site, an amenity to the residents, according to the company's website.

Alan Schoellkopf, Stonelake's chief operating officer, confirmed that the park plan is still in play but directed additional questions to an associate with the firm who did not return calls.

Perhaps the park will be temporary and buildings will be developed once the commercial real estate market improves. But maybe it will become another example of urban green space, as developers put more of an emphasis on nature and community spaces.

The site is between Highland Village and River Oaks District. It includes several low-rise buildings that housed an Indian restaurant, two banks, medical offices and other small businesses.

or another such notable hotel flag.  located among beautiful oak trees... right on the side of ROD and HIGHLAND PARK VILLAGE.
