Elan Memorial Park & The Byrdie by Greystar


Recommended Posts

Discovered this while looking for more information on another project by Greystar.

 

Quote
In 2014, Greystar will also begin Elan Memorial Park, which will be located in the Washington corridor submarket of Houston. It will be divided into two phases of 292 and 258 units.

"Charleston, S.C.-based Greystar recently purchased the 1980s-era Memorial Club Apartments at 904 Westcott. The company plans to redevelop the property into an upscale complex that may include a retail component."

Awesome! Love that they went w a modern/unique design. This will go well with the Morgan groups new ROB apartment a few blocks down on tc jester which also has a very fun design.

I wonder if the trader joes rumor that surrounded this project are accurate. I think the rooftops are there to support it IMO.

Did anyone else used to play at the construction sites when the workers were not around on dirt bikes or even walk through partially constructed houses? We did in North Houston when I was a kid.

 

I used to walk through houses/condos under construction all the time - especially when I am looking to buy -- I love doing that to get ideas.....it's not as easy anymore with all the surveillance cameras and fences they put up now due to the criminals robbing, burning, stealing, etc from building sites...

i'd think maintaining visibility for motorists and cyclists is of greater concern.

Yeah I'm sure that tree helps...

Putting in some beautiful flowers or a small fountain shouldn't hurt. Are the flower beds and stainless steel arches/street signs a big distraction in Uptown?

Edit: it doesn't have to be a tall obelisk to be spectacular. A gorgeous flower arrangement could be executed quite nicely. It's a unique area of town.

I would like to have some sort of art installation or contemporary art statue like that one orange curvy statue that is in downtown San Antonio. An important part of helping to give areas more identity is creating landmark type objects. That Live Oak while very nice and certainly very old doesn't really separate the area or that tree from other oaks that are around. Montrose you are right too in your response that the tree doesn't help with visibility at all and shouldn't be an excuse to keep it. Plus thats not how traffic circles work anyway. You visibility should be on the road right in front of you. There are signs that tell you which road is which both at the circle and ahead of time.

 

The circle though should be utilized to create something unique for the area that will both give something special to the community, but also aid drivers once at the circle. Like maybe further illustrate the direction of the circle or help clearly identify which street is which or help show what is further ahead without the need for the driver to look for themselves.
