I love how fast this thing is going up.  It's fun that -- even tho' I see it every day -- I am still aware that its growing.  Unlike some other projects that seem to take forever.

 

It will be interesting to see how the Westcreek developments unfold.  I'm not sure how many of the projects I've heard of will actually happen.  Two of them are condo towers, one is an office tower, and one is a hotel.  I think the patio homes people mentioned a few months back are a long-dead concept, perhaps because they were considered to be "under-developing" the site, what with all the high-rise stuff going up next door.

I hope you are right about the patio homes. But 2 condo towers? SkyHouse is apartments..

Boy, do I not want to drive a car into that!

 

 

Then I would recommend NOT moving to the SkyHouse River Oaks.

 

Seriously, Westcreek Lane is a TWO LANE ROAD, that terminates on both ends WITHOUT streetlights.

 

It was *barely* tolerable with ~1000 apartments and $1/SF rents. I did a lot of work from home. If I got hungry at 5 PM and didn't have any food in the place, I weighed "starving" and "eating sawdust/unidentifiable crap off the floor" quite heavily when compared to the prospect of attempting to drive to anywhere.

 

This meant I did a lot of grocery shopping at 10 PM, which I actually preferred. But I didn't like having the option of 5 PM virtually made impossible.

Why would people that live in Skyhouse get on 610? I drive around this area all the time and live nearby and I never get on 610. That's for people that live in the sticks and have to drive on highways to work.

 

Everyone else getting on 610 makes it impossible for you to get on any other road.

Yes, if you live there you don't need to get on 610, just enjoy its beautiful scenery from your balcony.

You've obviously never seen SkyHouse Austin or SkyHouse Dallas.. Both overlook major highways. The one in Dallas literally backs up to the feeder road...

For the record, I think it's kind of weird they are developing all these high end residential developments at Westcreek/along 610. Clearly it's a fantastic location for development. But I would imagine 610 will deter a few buyers/renters from moving to Westcreek.

Yeah the fantastic/priceless views of Uptown, Downtown, and the TMC will surely be overshadowed by 610 :P Edited by Montrose1100
