It doesn't look like it on the render. The site is also super, super tiny. I'd be surprised if they had much of any space left over for more than a few outside of the building spots.

Was thinking how it would help if a rendering was pegged at the top of every page on these developments. Wouldn’t have to be multiple renderings just 1.

Just when I think they are done excavating they start scraping away another layer of soil. I wonder where all of this clean fill is going ?

To raise land for new suburban homes in the flood plains!

Pardon my ignorance, but is there an actual rendering for said high-rise?  A 40 floor building is costly, and presumably the developers needed a rendering for/to assist selling this to their lenders (much less the public).

 

I’ve seen the SketchUp model, but surely that was not the actual rendered building?!?

Check out the developer's website, the rendering that has been posted several times on this thread appears next to the project "Aspire Post Oak":

Of course!  Thanks!

 

i knew there was something.  I think I’m crossing my Uptown 40 floor building streams?!??  Seems there’s one tower with 40 floors and a SketchUp massing model that’s just not really sophisticated.  Same property that Monarch -aka- G-Class (?) assumes/is hopeful for a future W Hotel.

I think you might be thinking of the McNair project at Richmond.

There's a thread on here about the project.  I believe its going to have 3 towers, one office, a hotel, and condo. It seems that one of the towers would actually be 

fairly tall. Not as big as Transco but up there. It will be nice to have some growth on the south end. It will give Transco some company and stretch the skyline.

So it's almost from I-10 to 59.

dang that last photo!!!!!!!!!!! and man i know it's just perception but that really looks so close to The Cosmo...I wonder how close the actual (new) sides of the building will be from it? Is there some kind of distance regulation for that? I am guessing there is but just curious to know what that is. (like can a parkour master climb to the top using both buildings!? haha :ph34r: )  

(i will say that roof of Total Wine needs to be powerwashed...Cosmo should have used all their lawyer/legal money to pay for that instead!) :)

Yeah I have seen a few on the weekends since so many already try to use short term whole foods/bank parking for the restaurants there and some park across the street rather than easily park in the garage 🙈...but its about to get WAY worse once Ninfa's opens at the corner of BLVD Place where Peska was...

(i said it elsewhere but Ninfa's should have opened where Willie G's on Post Oak was or Anejo in Uptown Park was...)

I was told by a friend who works for the McNair Group, or whatever it’s called, that they will start after the Post Oak redeployment is finished. So at the pace they are going we should see this break ground in a decade or so.

Was down in the area yesterday. They really have made a significant amount of progress. Better than I hope. That end of the redevelopment might take a bit longer though as METRO is still trying to work with TxDOT to figure out if they are getting a flyover 59 to extend the route. I'm guessing they are halting to make sure that whatever right of way the redevelopment needs is over and done with by the time the project kicks off.

Crane may be going up this weekend.  Drove by and saw all the crane sections on-site.

 

Was supposed to be a road closure last night. Drove by and didn't see any activity. 

 

Thanks will check it out

Thats a jacking unit towards the top and several vert sections on the ground so yes it's going to get higher.

... and the moral of the story is...

if you sell the units in a building based on the view, BUY THE LOT NEXT DOOR, TOO so the view can be there forever... LOL

Looking from that angle I cannot wait until the strip mall on Post Oak is gone. I want to see all of PO lined with skyscrapers

And donate it to the city for "green space", get a tax write off for the donation, and then charge 20% for the units because of the park right outside the front door

So the McDonalds that resisted the coming of the Astoria got wiped away, after all?

I talked with someone who works for the McNair corporation and he said it is still definitely a go on the project. However he said they will have to modify the design slightly because of the land they had to sell to the city for the widening of Post Oak. Also when the hell is Post Oak going to be finished? I looks like its been 90% done for months now. 

So it's the Interstate 85 of Uptown?

Emporis is showing it being about 25 ft shorter than BHP.
