Elan Memorial Park & The Brydie by Greystar

Recommended Posts

Neighborhood meeting earlier this week.  Believe it was 12 floors... "may look something like Elan Heights".  Premium price point to the Elan across the street.

I look forward to a future where thousands of people live in midrises around this roundabout and all of them are having to drive to get a taco or a bottle of wine since there's no GFR.

Trying to remember wether the Traders Joe was supposed to be in this building or in the apartments across the street? Anyone recall? I do recall word of their being one in one or the other many years ago.

Rumored, but never confirmed I think. (Also, I like the term Traders Joe as the plural. Kind of like Attorneys General.)

There WAS a Spec's on the roundabout until the city closed it for being too close to the elementary school. (These proximity rules are something that needs to be revisited as the city densifies, BTW.)

Would be great if a grocer went in this area. Its technically a food desert. People that live in that area have to drive all the way east to find a store. However, if there was to be a grocer, you'd think that they would advertise it there renders in the front of the lot.

There was talk of Trader Joes being in the ground level retail in Phase 1 - I don't think anything beyond talk. I could be wrong, but doesn't appear from the rendering that Phase II includes GLR, rather is limited to lobby and parking garage.

Was surprised to see a second tower crane base on the westside of the project.

Multifamily developer Greystar has moved into the next phase of development on the former site of the Memorial Club apartments near the Washington Avenue roundabout.



The Charleston, S.C., developer, which is partnering with J.P. Morgan Asset Management on the project, has started construction on what will be an 11-story, 315-unit apartment building called The Byrdie.

"The community is being designed with sustainable products and will complement the surrounding neighborhood and pedestrian friendly location," Trent Conner, managing director of development for Greystar, said in an announcement.

The building will include one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, along with penthouse units.

Interior finishes will include stainless steel appliances, gas ranges, stone countertops and wood flooring throughout. Penthouse units will have Subzero and Wolf appliances.

Among the amenities will be a top-floor lounge that will have views of River Oaks and downtown, Greystar said. The building will also offer valet and concierge services.

The project is going up on the southwest corner of Westcott and Arnot streets, just east of Memorial Park. Harris County Appraisal District appraised the nearly three-acre parcel at $6.3 million.

The new building is expected to open by early 2021.
