The Carter Museum District: 20-Story Apartment Tower


Recommended Posts

So if I'm reading the rendering correctly this will not be directly on Montrose but behind the Chelsea mixed use development where Dantons is. This will be to the East of that center? Is this correct, and yes it does appear to show the pool on the southeast corner on the ground floor. Not above the garage. So its not next to the Museum towers but a little northeast of that building.

It will definitely add to the cluster of museum/ Herman park/ lower midtown, highrises along with the addition of the Southmore by Hines on Caroline and the Hanover Montrose tower. I'm not even including the 42 story on and off twisting tower planned for Herman drive. This will really start to fill in the area between the med center and downtown. Now when they start adding a few towers in Midtown that have been talked about the gaps will start going away between D.T. and the Med center. Pretty exciting.

haha, another fellow skyline aficionado. 

and wow. that is definitely the pool on the ground level on the southeast corner.. interesting. it will have absolutely no views except a wall and maybe the top of a house next door. i wonder if the whole top of the "podium" will be car parking, extending all the way to the north east corner.

The problem with a pool on the SE corner is that it will be in the shade when everyone wants to sit out and get some sun in the

afternoon. It should have gone on the southwest corner which is where the sun will be in the afternoons. I'm not to concerned but if they had been thinking thats how they should have oriented the pool. I'm just glad to see the building going up.

I was thinking the same thing as bob, cloud :lol:

 

Uptown will be very dense by 2016, more so than it is now.

 

The TMC is dense, and getting denser.

 

Downtown's parking lots are being eaten up by residential and office towers.

 

Buffalo Bayou has a handful of towers around it, with a handful more proposed / starting

 

Greenway Plaza / Upper Kirby are growing.

 

Montrose is seeing some tall activity finally.

 

We are seeing our own Manhattan island forming. The 4 by 1.5 mile stretch that runs East to West. You can even see it from UH (their new stadium in particular). Its so exciting to see.

am i off base in guesstimating uptown will be at least 50% denser by 2020..? its incredible the amount of high rises proposed for/going up in that area. but yeah, very true, and it excites the **** out of me to think of Houston having its own sprawled version of Manhattans skyline (although with less buildings), from uptown-downtown-the medical center in a few decades.

The view from wildcat golf course is pretty amazing and the gap between DT and uptown is relatively "full" appearing already.

The developments in river oaks, greenway and inside the loop of uptown, which are on board already will certainly give the appearance of a continuous skyline as is. Can't imagine in 20-30 years

It won't be "by itself".. It's less than 2 blocks from museum tower, which is like a block from a couple other high rises. Not mentioning that M Fifty Nine building that was like 13 stories tall, planned for the other side of 59 from this site.

I was looking on my phone, so I thought that was the pool on top of the garage. Once I enlarged the photo, I see my mistake. But really the placenta on the southeast corner is no better. People love the rooftop pools. (On top of the garages). The Spires pool is down low and it's depressing.

Good grief, autocorrect wrote placenta when I wanted to say placement. Forgive me.

If autocorrect wrote the wrong word, why wouldn't you just fix it without pointing it out and asking for forgiveness all in the same post?   <_<

 

Doesn't make sense.

What are you talking about? I was just pointing out that I guess he's right to an extent, if you were coming from the west this project would be the first thing you see coming out of the trench.. But so what?

I have no idea what I am taking about.

That's why I said we will have to wait and see.

I certainly love the building. Dunno yet if I like where it will be plopped

I've long thought this immediate area was ripe for some more of these buildings.  The proximity to Montrose and the Museum District cannot be ignored.  Though to be honest I almost wish some more of these would crop up along the north and east sides of Herman Park.
