Recommended Posts

Anyone know if this one is currently under construction? Exact address is not listed.

 

Edit: Here's the site. Guess they'll have to wait until construction on Campus Vue wraps up.

Located a block from the University of Houston campus, this 147 bed project has the scale of a boutique hotel. Sharing amenities with the adjacent project allowed freedom in the design.  The Annex makes use of the small footprint by stacking three stories of wood frame over two stories of parking.  Unit types include efficiency and micro units to maximize the use of the space with convertible furniture - beds fold up behind the sofa and movable partitions allow students greater flexibility with the space. This project is planned for completion in Spring 2016.

What amenities will be shared with the adjacent project? I think of parking when I hear that, but this is it's own pedestal. Gym? Pool?

That was the Sigma Nu house until they lost it. Sigma Chi bought it but were thrown off campus for "water boarding pledges" with booze. 

 

By the way, the second Vue is already up and running. The construction seen in that photo is the God-awful garage that is already open. Hoping this mean they will add another apartment building to this side to hide the garage.

After more than a year of vacancy and decay, the clearing of the 9,000-square-foot estate that housed the Epsilon Xi chapter of Sigma Chi is underway.

After Sigma Chi International Fraternity closed its UH chapter in May 2015, the Sigma Chi Housing Corporation sold the 5018 Calhoun Road property to a private developer. 

“The house’s demolition will have no ramification on the chapter’s return,” said Andrew Pate, an alumnus and former member of the Epsilon Xi chapter of Sigma Chi. “The housing corporation made out very well on the house’s sale.”


The demolition — which began Friday — will finish next week, said Clovis Restrepo, a representative for EZ Demolitions, the company hired to pull down the structure. He said the crew will leave the foundation intact to serve as a parking lot until construction begins on a new project. 

According to Harris County Appraisal District records, the private developer that purchased the 5018 Calhoun Road house is “UH VP LP.” The corporation’s registered agent is listed as Acho Azuike, the director at Houston EB5, a real estate investment and development firm.
