Ivy Lofts, 28-Story Residential High-Rise East of Downtown

Recommended Posts

Looks like it's actually on the old Leeland Grocery Wholesale site next to the Reese Supply warehouse.

 

At least that's what the PDF looks like.

You're right, thanks for catching that! I mentioned one of the streets the block is bounded by is Bell St, but it's actually Leeland.

Wow!! The design looks similar to the apartment building to be build at 3300 Main in Midtown.

Impressive for the size and the location being that is not that close to downtown yet not that far, imagine the pricing might be a bit cheaper then inside dowtown. there also seems to be an empty lot across the street which could eventually lead to another development. 

 

awesome news.

Groundbreaking may actually happen pretty soon. Also, this will be a condo building.

 

 

Good morning ****.,
 
Thanks for your inquiry about Ivy Lofts. The initial information I have is that they will be one and two bedroom units for sale. They're scheduled to break ground within the next few weeks. 
 
Square footage and price points have not been confirmed yet, but with your permission, I can add you to me contact list and keep you updated with information as I receive it. 
 
Sincerely,
******

Is it just me, or is this most likely being built by pirates?

This one could have the best views of downtown Houston of any building in town. It will be from the same angle as UH's stadium but closer which will make downtown appear ultra massive from that vantage point.

A video on their FB Page shows off the views. Not exactly the same angle but it is still one I'd love to have.

Most of these blocks will probably become town house farms, but hopefully some (like Ivy Lofts) will think taller

Could someone knowledgeable in the ways of real estate explain how this beautiful condo will be constructed soon, yet the 40 story block 98 apartment tower  near the sports and convention center as well as rail access to the theater and museum districts is being delayed.

The half block it's going to be built on is currently occupied by the construction trailers for the Marriott.  They can't build a tower until the Marriott finishes

I feel like going to the empty downtown/midtown/east end lots and screaming

"You get a tower, you get a tower, you get a tower, and YOU GET A TOWER!!!"

 

Then i froth at the mouth and collapse from excitement. 

 

I'm so weak!!!

I can see East Downtown being transformed more into another identity than Third Ward. East Downtown is virtually empty and needs some filling and life badly. I hope Houston will definitely take care of this area, truly transforming it into an urban haven.

The units will be very small - actually tiny.....little bitty space for little money

 

(I dont know what those words mean in numbers unfortunately)

If this gets built then you can expect a ton of more development to follow. You always need just one developer to take the plunge and the rest follow. So this is actually pretty big if this gets built.

Microunits....I'll be very interested to see if Houston supports demand on a condo basis. I can see Texas mortgage lending underwriters freaking out with questions about a studio condo.

Either this or City View would in itself be a game changer for EaDo, but both would be huge.

 

Does anyone know who's behind Ivy Lofts?

East Downtown can finally be taken seriously.

 

Looking forward to what else this brings the area.

 

The writing has been on the wall for a while, if not something that a lot of people have paid any attention to.

Herrin lofts (I think that's the name, by the soccer stadium), those apartments that have been there for almost 10 years now, the tons of town houses over there, not a single one can be had for less than $350,000. 

 

Yeah, this will be huge for that corner of the near east end, it will help push the whole area over the edge it's been teetering for a while.

Long time lurker, first time poster. So first things first, thank you all for always keeping me up to date on what's happening with pictures and news. I look forward to contributing update photos of construction going on around the city.

 

These apartments are going to be huge for EaDo. Really excited about it and city view terrace. Only negative is that it is a decent walk to the nearest light rail station (9-10) blocks.

Eado is definitely on the upswing. Many agents at my broker (yes I'm a real estate agent) have been getting a lot of activity in the area.
