^^^ although, in my view, the exterior seems quite forbidding... as in a scary asylum / clinic.  however, the interior design

is drop dead gorgeous!  additionally, that bathroom slide with the opulent square tub.. that mirrors a small pool, 

is what dreams are made of.  i would kill for that tub.....

Love it. Only thing I would change:

 

That huge glass around the  entrance should be repeated all throughout the ground floor. 

 

The leftmost part of the project is a parking garage. 

 

I would like to see the top floor a glass curtain wall.

Stolz Partners LLC, in collaboration with furniture maker Giorgetti, are planning to develop Giorgetti Houston, a luxury condo project in Upper Kirby.

 

The seven-story, 32-unit project will sit on a little less than an acre at the northeast corner of Steel Street and Virginia Avenue, just south of the West Ave mixed-use development. Stolz Partners is currently under contract for the land, which was the former site of the Kirby Court apartments.

 

Giorgetti Houston, designed by Houston architect Mirador Group, will feature a contemporary glass, stucco and masonry exterior, inspired by iconic furniture designs from Giorgetti.

 

The condo will offer two-bedroom units with a study and three-bedroom units averaging about 3,000 square feet of living space as well as up to 500 square feet of outdoor terrace space. The units will feature high-end kitchen and bathroom cabinets designed and manufactured by Giorgetti as well as Gaggenau appliances. Prices will average just under $2 million.

 

The project will have four penthouse units — boasting 5,000 square feet of living space — on the top floor with views overlooking the Upper Kirby area.

 

Giorgetti Houston will feature a well-appointed lobby area furnished with Giorgetti furniture. There will be some common lounges and outdoor spaces, as well as a fitness room, but the project was intentionally designed without costly amenities, like a pool or a large club room, to save on HOA fees, said Will Stolz, founder and owner of Stolz Partners.

 

Giorgetti Houston will likely appeal to working professionals and empty nesters who want to live within walking distance to neighborhood shops, restaurants and offices, said Stolz.

Stolz Partners plans to open an on-site sales center in mid-September and will break ground on the project after preselling half of the units.

I don't think the views from the video make much sense, but alright...

But dang! An Aventador!

 

other notes:

 +1 point for 4:20 video length

 -1 point for this Sudhoff dude's extremely optimistic beliefs (something about "It's gonna set a new standard in the condominium world worlwide")

A quarter of Giorgetti Houston’s units have been sold since presales began four months ago, Sudhoff said. Units average about 3,000 square feet with between 500 to 2,000 square feet of terrace. Prices average just under $2 million.

 

If presales at Giorgetti Houston stay on its current trajectory, the project could break ground by the end of 2017, Stolz said.

Probably because the institution providing the construction financing would require at least 50% in pre-sales.

 

Yes, of course. I would think confidence in the project would be at 30-40%

He noted Wednesday that his firm had just reached the pre-sale requirement to move forward with construction on a high-end midrise with 32 condos in upper Kirby called Giorgetti, named for the Italian cabinet and furniture maker that partnered with the developer on the building.

Next door to Hanover River Oaks - can you say "traffic".   

 

I live in the area and drive by this site twice a day on my way to and from work. Kirby is not near as bad as Shepherd and neither are bad at all compared to the poor souls who live in Katy, Surgarland or the Woodlands. Traffic is really not much of an issue if you live in upper kirby or river oaks. You never have to drive far and can Uber to just about anywhere worth going for $7 and they show up at your house in under 5 minutes.

Since Uptown has blocked light rail multiple times (Post Oak and University lines), I'm really hoping that the next legs focus on  the "spines" that continue to density INSIDE the loop.

 

1st on the list would be Allen Parkway/Kirby. It could connect to the Theatre District stop.....go up Allen parkway with the currently and planned developments (i.e. mixed use near FRB and  Regent Square)  and then down Upper Kirby, which  is quickly becoming the "Broadway" of Houston. It would then continue up Kirby to Rice Village. You'd get a lot of points of interest along that route and it would alleviate traffic.

 

Midtown appears to be in good shape with the cluster of dense development along the Main Street Line.

 

Other Inner Loop 'urban' corridors that Metro should consider as they are really densifying quickly include...Washington and Montrose.

 

Uptown had their chance....

I agree 100% with your sentiment, however there’s no way in hell that RO residents will allow a rail line down Kirby. Shepherd  would be more feasible, politically, though idk how feasible it is engineering-wise. Montrose blvd makes sense but we don’t really need two lines to the museum district. Also, Washington, W Dallas or W Gray would be alternatives to Allen (my vote is Washington).
