Elan Memorial Park & The Byrdie by Greystar

Recommended Posts

Sorry man, I honestly hate it. They could've done something really nice (brick or stone) on this corner but nope, this s*** is weak

Looks nice to me and from the rendering - the green is not used very much, but if majority of the building was that tone of green I wouldn't be too excited for the final outcome.

There are some excuses for this color. If it's Russia, the Victorian house calls for it in the color palette, or it's close to a natural body of water with an equally vibrate blue color.

Oh my god that green! This isn't a hot take; that color is just the worst.

 

haha that is the exact color of the pops of color in my otherwise dark gray apartment (accent pillows, chair, candles etc) haha!!!

Wow, freaking awesome pictures.  Both the Elan project and the Pearl Project are huge.  They look ugly as sin right now up close but hopefully they'll get the color schemes sorted out. Sure wish both of them had gone with brick.

Even the half-brick/half-Hardy Plank look that the EaDo Apartments have would've been acceptable for this, but I'll reserve final judgement until completion.

Do we know what that rooftop terrace / floor on top of the parking garage, facing downtown, is going to be?

I looked through the renders and couldn't see it drawn up anywhere.  This would be cool if it's going to be a bar / restaurant.

Houston really needs some rooftop bars/ restaurants and that looks perfect for one.

Gargantuan is a great word to describe this. I frequently ride the 85 bus past this and it is certainly an imposing structure compared to the surrounding buildings in the area.

Any word on the ground floor retail? A while back there was talk of a Trader Joes.

I saw no signs indicating what GFR was going in but most Trader Joe's have small square footage and their seems to be enough room for one.

Work has been slow at this one.  Sure hope there is a grocer going.  Lot's of rumblings in the past couple of years anyways.  

 

Might be the ugliest new apartment complex anywhere across town.  Brown paint and hardiplank.  Elan/Greystar/whatever should be ashamed.

Regarding the second phase at Westcott and Arnot: What's left of Memorial Club is still being leased by Greystar, and the lady in the office told me on Saturday (3/5) that the complex will be around at least through the end of '17.

Gr8 Plate Hospitality, owned by Paul Miller, plans to open a Union Kitchenon the ground floor of the Elan Memorial Park apartments at 920 Westcott in late summer or early fall. The 5,100-square-foot space will have a main dining room, bar area, private dining room and patio. Other Union Kitchen locations are on Bellaire Boulevard, Ella Boulevard and in Memorial and Kingwood.

Also opening on the ground floor of Elan Memorial is The Yellow Cup at 6001 Washington Ave, Suite 100. It's a cafe that will serve coffee and tea.

Interesting.  I wonder if the proprietors know a Starbucks is being built right now less than 1000 feet away from them at 6201 Washington Ave?

Also,  does anyone here know what is going on with the Union Kitchen at this location?  It was supposed to be open in July but is not yet open nor is this location even mentioned on their website (that I can find...)

Residents of the Memorial Club complex across the street given notice to move for Phase II

Awesome news. That roundabout is very cool - needs a refresher. I do really like how the 4 neighborhoods come together there. Hopefully this building has a good presence. It needs to be able to age gracefully.

 

I wonder if this will look anything like phase 1?

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.
