Fairview and Montrose (formerly The Bowery on Montrose)

Recommended Posts

I think they may have just taken up all the concrete, and piled it up. That's my guess at least.

Combing back through the renderings, it looks as though a Houston B-Cycle station is proposed near this thing. I am quite hopeful, should that come to fruition, that other developers might take note to add a station as an amenity for apartments.

Fortunately, Lola's is still there to act as a counterbalance.

 

Edit:  For those unfamiliar, it's the purple building in the background.  It has a wonderfully manky pissoir.

God I can't wait until Houston matures with structures like this on every block... Along major thoroughfares of course. Handsome building.

^^^ solid design and happy to have it.  however, didn't some developers recently have to shelve their montrose district projects due to the doom and gloom of the houston economy?  how does THE BOWERY plan to rise above all of the rest?  inquiring minds.....

I thought this one was supposed to have retail at the bottom, although I'm probably getting this confused with a different project. All I see is the garage coverings at the bottom, but still looks very nice

New sign seen today points to City Place Living . Com 

 

Website directs you to their Midtown apartment building. The sign on site also says "now leasing". I'd say they're trying fill that one up before starting work on The Bowery on Montrose.

I find it odd that they would call a place "Bowery" given its historic connotation of a slum and red light district (post Civil war) in NYC.  Yes, I know it has been gentrifying for a decade or so, but I am still surprised that folks would name a new building "Bowery".

Well----

Maybe the person charged with naming the apartment had experience with  the crappy sidewalks. . . . iffy street lighting. . . . low water pressure.....unreliable new sewage pipes that seem to spring leaks......and high BMV within Avondale...............?:blink:
