Wow, this is impressive what is going on. When is 1717 going to break ground?!

A JANUARY newsletter from The Southampton Civic Club informs members that Hanover, building the mixed-use midrisepictured above, has purchased additional property on Morningside in Rice Village “just north” of the current construction site. The newsletter states that Hanover is planning to begin Phase II: a 12-story, 200-unit residential building withno retail. The newsletter’s language suggests that the property is bound by Morningside, Tangley, Dunstan, and Kelvin; that’s where the Village Commons, the Tangley Building, the Village Apartments, and Garden Gate are — at least for now.

Does anyone have a copy of that newsletter?

There's already a 16+ story tower two blocks from this site over on Robinhood. If they do it right I can see this being a nice addition to the area. If they do it wrong, however, I can see it ruining the aesthetic of a nice neighborhood.

Super nice looking project. Love the buildings themselves. However, how are they going to get Morningside to look like that?

 

Also, I do feel sorry for the folks owning the high $$ houses directly across the street. One has a pool in the front yard that will now have zero privacy. Not surprising that 2 have come on the market in the last month... trying to unload to unsuspecting buyers I suppose?

I think we have taken the privacy concerns too far. I live in a two story town home with a row of single family homes lined behind my home. I can see in all their back yards and inside their homes if they were ever to open their blinds.

Even people who live in high rises and use their own pool have no privacy as their building neighbors can see them as well.

It seems we bring up privacy concerns when a multifamily buildings goes up next to single family.

My comment was less about privacy concerns and more about how 50% of the homes directly across the street from this proposal are now on the market.

 

Say what you will, but people who own single family homes likely do not want a 12 story building shadowing them.

If you look at the sun paths in Houston, the shadows will generally only affect the houses on the opposite side of Morningside Dr in the late afternoon. It will most likely affect areas to the north. It will have larger shadows in the winter time, due to the sun being closer to the horizon.

The Village Apartments near Rice Village has seen its last days. It — and the Garden Gate Nursery property  – are being demolished for a 12-story apartment building.

 

Hanover Co. bought the properties and is developing the project. The company recently built a 380-unit complex nearby at 2455 Dunstan called Hanover Rice Village. The average-size unit — 970 square feet — rents for more than $2,300 per month.

Units in the new building will average around 1,400 square feet, Hanover’s David Ott Jr. said earlier this year.

 

“It generally will be geared toward the more mature renter coming out of large homes in the neighborhood. We’ve seen great demand from residents of Southampton wanting to sell their homes and stay in the area as a renter,” he said.

Hanover has earned some goodwill from the neighborhood/Rice Village community on Phase 1.  It's a quality project that should age well.  The hope is that Phase II continues with that theme.  It will also be interesting to see if this tower beats the Ashby High Rise to market.  I'm guessing they will be in direct competition for a number of tenants.

Hmmm, this looks like it could be twin towers on a shared base unless the two tower parts connect on the Western side of the building. However, the new rendering clearly labels the Southern-most tower "South Hanover."

 

Also, this is going up on Morningside @ Bolsover but wont reach Kelvin St. The Kelvin Arms, Benjy's, and Local are safe. Whew. Those are neighborhood staples.

@KinkaidAlum is right: This new rendering seems to have the same perspective as the first one; it's looking at the building as through from Morningside. (So it's looking west.) It'll take up half the lot; the Tangley office building and the Village Common with Benjy's, Local Foods, et. al., are staying right where they are.

 

My guess is that the parking will be accessed from Dunstan or Tangley.

 

The first complex is actually OK, as far as complexes go. It also has a water feature that sits back from Morningside. Does anyone know who the architect is?

Lots of work on the site today. They've begun excavation and have dug down quite a bit. Wonder if there will be an underground garage level?

 

The majority of the businesses in Hanover Rice Village I are open and they are a great addition to the neighborhood. I took a stroll from my house to check out Cloud 10 on Friday night. Great ice cream and the sidewalks were jammed with activity all the way from the Hanover to University Blvd. Sidewalk and Patio seating options were packed at the new Italian joint, Cloud 10, Torchy's, Gingerman, Woodrow's, Baker St, and more. There were also a couple of food trucks out and about. I have never seen that many people strolling around at night. A+ to Hanover.
