Interesting, there are currently signs up on a portion of the property for an Ice House. I guess that project isn't happening but a Broadstone here would take the area up a notch.

Interesting that the Greensheet building is shown as being owned by PMRG and they are proposing a 600 unit high-rise... Can anyone confirm if the recent activity at the GS building appears to be a tear down or if it looks more like a renovation?  This has been quiet for awhile and those renovation plans were proposed by the previous owner, not PMRG.  A 600-unit high-rise next to Caydon's three high-rises would be pretty significant.  Also interesting to see a high-rise proposed right by the Sears building at 4510 Main.  The evolution of Midtown is going to be very exciting to watch in the next several years.

Next month, Phoenix-based Alliance Residential Co. will start construction on a new five-story apartment project near the corner of Sawyer and Edwards, close to The Silos at Sawyer Yards and about a mile from its other project under construction, Broadstone Studemont
 
 

The 327-unit project’s design will fit in with the “vibe of the Sawyer Arts District,” with a brick veneer exterior made to match the look of the warehouses in the area, said Luke Phillippi, development director with Alliance. 

 

“We wanted to design something that feels like it’s part of that neighborhood,” Phillippi said. “We’re not just putting a major modern hard-edge building when you need to put brick.”

 

The area’s “cool walkable amenities” are what drew the company to that area, he said. 

 

Phillippi wouldn’t disclose who Alliance bought the 3.85 acre-tract from but records from the Harris County Appraisal District list Westheimer Retail Center Ltd. as the owner.

 

The Sawyer project’s amenities include a sky deck facing east, with direct views of downtown, Phillippi said. One- and two-bedroom apartments will range in size from 613 square feet to 1,249 square feet with rents starting around $1,400. Apartment features will likely include “condo-like” finishes such as quartz countertops, wooden-plank flooring, farmhouse sinks and tiled shower floors.

 

 

Since the project is right by a railroad track, the building will include higher-rated windows to help with sound absorption.

 

Houston-based EDI International designed the building with Alliance as its own general contractor. Construction financing is provided through Regions Bank. 

The project should deliver by the fourth quarter of 2020.
