Parkside Residences: 43-Story Residential High-Rise For Block 98

Interesting, based on the latest pics this will be built like 111 W 57th in NYC where the two smaller sides are basically solid allowing for the skinny/thinner construction. 

 

As for the lot it is my understanding that the architect for Hess tower convinced Hess to build the garage on a portion of the block and save the rest for future development. However that is only based on rumors/hearsay. Maybe others on here can confirm if true.

I wonder what this blue steel form is for? This looks like it might be the elevator shaft but I doubt that worn out piece of steel will be part of the finished building.

 

Its self climbing formwork.  Here is a decent video explaining how it works:

Long story short:  It is a faster, cheaper, and safer way to place concrete for repetitive vertical stuff like elevator and stair shafts.  All of it gets removed at the completion of the concrete work and sent to the next project.

It’s probably just there because the renderer added it - but there is a residential looking high rise just to the left of the Marriott that doesn’t seem to exist yet?

 

I’d guess that’s Catalyst (behind Alexan Downtown)

Will this building have its own parking garage or will they have to share the one next door? Is this building touching the garage? If not, it's interesting how they build it inches apart.

The parking garage is in the building, it's the floors above the first floor lobby area, looks like 7 to 9 floors of parking.

My favorite quote from this:

Houston police later said the man told them he didn't even remember going into the construction site and climbing the crane. It's believed drugs played a role in the incident.
