Cadogan Place: River Oaks Townhomes on San Felipe


Recommended Posts

New townhouse community being built at the intersection of San Felipe and Revere. Will be 10 four story townhouses ranging in size from 5,000 square feet to 7,800 square feet and start at $2.2 million. Going up right across from the Winfield Gate townhouse development which started construction some time last year.

I am swept away by the Parisian street scape. The most romantic block in Houston. I eagerly await the headlines around the world, "Houston teleports a block from Palais Royal".

Sorry I got carried away. It's not too terrible but in true Houston fashion this project is watered down from rendering.

You're talking about the store, right?  ;)

The townhomes pictured is Winfield Gate. Saint Honore has yet to begin.

 

Do we have a thread for that? Then Saint Honore must be the vacant lot on the left side of that picture.

I believe some "quotations" should go on the word's "complete" urbannizer :P I drive past this almost every morning, and they seem to have stalled with this one. The back townhomes have been without any plaster for what seems like forever! I just saw them like a few days ago covering the area up with a plastic sheet over the scaffolding getting the area prep'ed for plaster.

Just came on here to ask whatever happened to the development in the rendering, but then scrolled down and realized that the development that I liked so much was that development in the rendering. It turned out great but, it doesn't look like the rendering said it would. Did that house on the corner not sell and that had to change plans? I wonder if they will eventually sell?

That development pictured isn't Saint Honore.. SH hasn't started yet apparently

Like I have said before, I'm not someone who is in favor of replicating this type of architecture.....but this is pretty nice. I don't really care for the pinched roofs on top. That seems like an after thought! This isn't pushing any boundaries in terms of its architecture nor is it set in our contemporary times, but this is this style of architecture done right. Not bad.

Blah!  <_<  I would expect to see something like that in suburban DC, not Houston. Lofty ambitions brought down to Earth by escalating costs.

 

So French style....ok that's Houston. English style....moo not very Houston. No offense that's pretty daft. I don't really understand the reasoning behind it lol.

I didn't say the French look was necessarily the best (I'd go for the Dutch look, but that requires a canal. :P ) But there are options. Houston seems to favor the rowhouse, especially if it has industrial elements. Color would also be nice. For some reason everyone thinks that would bring down property values.

lol Cloud...your sarcasm slays me.....no really that was your intention right?

I knew you would disagree but this is an architecture forum and we are allowed to have our own opinions. I seriously liked Saint Honore better than most low/mid rise projects around the city that come to mind, with the exception of the midrise on buffalo bayou at beltway 8. At least Saint Honore looked different from the average town home development.. It had style. This new design looks average.

By all means disagree :P and I will support you in your right to do so, I just don't think it's the best thing coming up even when it was French and not English.

Eh, I may have over reacted a bit in my initial response, but i had always thought SH was one of the best looking town home developments in the city and am bummed to see it replaced by another run of the mill town home development that looks like every other average development going up across the city.

Oh, we could do canals if we wanted to - just reconfigure those giant toilet cleaner blue retention ponds in the burbs (or clog up the storm sewers).

In an alternate timeline, it's not to far-fetched to image us as a city full of canals if maybe the city started 100 years earlier

I've thought about that, too. I like how we're fixing the areas around Buffalo Bayou, but I would really love to see the Bayou City invest more into all of our main bayous to make them more appealing. As great as this city is, it has so much more game-changing potential.

One day rich hot women from Dallas won't say Houston is ugly to you anymore and you just look at your shoes.

huh? why would you look at your shoes when snobby fake women from Dallas say ignorant crap like that? Dallas is no better looking than Houston..  :huh:  :blink:  :rolleyes:

Yeah, if someone from Dallas said something like that to me, I'd be like LULZ #lookinthemirrormyfriend.

 

Both cities have their share of VERY nice areas, but no one is mistaking either one for San Francisco or Paris in the natural beauty department.
