That 40 story twisty tower would pop a lot nicer.

Tema Development Inc. is nearing completion on One Hermann Place, a $75 million luxury apartment project across the street from Hermann Park.

 

The Houston developer broke ground in December 2014 on the seven-story, 224-unit apartment complex on 2.25 acres at 1699 Hermann Dr., near Jackson Street in the Museum District.

 

The project was formally called the Capella, a bright star that can be seen from the park. However, developers changed its name to One Hermann Place after finding out that the Capella name was trademarked by a New York hotelier.

 

Tema is expected to deliver the first units inside One Hermann Place in early June, and will hold a grand opening in July.

If it's 7 stories, why put in the pool in a courtyard? Overlooking the park on the roof would be a thousand times better. Not to mention the afternoon/late sun.

Because its a lot more expensive to put the pool on the roof.

Uncle Teddy is spot on. It would have been prohibitively expensive for these guys to do so. Now, if they go high rise, say 30+ floors, then a pool on a roof deck would be indeed stunning.
