Alta River Oaks Mid-Rise (West Dallas @ Shepherd)

Recommended Posts

Does that 10’ dimension from the building line to the W. Dallas right of way mean we are getting a building that will come up almost to the sidewalk?

 

This must have been an expensive piece of land to buy considering that the 4.5 acres near it went for over $30 million. Could a wrap make sense here or would you need a high rise to make the investment worthwhile?

Its actually the opposite. The building line will be 10' from the sidewalk, so no it will not be right up against the sidewalk.

10- and 25-feet are the Chapter-42 compliant setbacks for Dallas and Shepherd, respectively. For reference, the condo building across Dallas from this site appears to have 10-ft setbacks as well.

It could possibly fit in between the C apartments and engineering building...

Disappointing.  Not liking that they are tearing down a recently-renovated high-rise to build another boring cookie-cutter midrise.  The site plan definitely shows it replacing the Cabochon, but sparing the engineering building, even though the rendering shows it on a corner.

There are a lot of question marks on this one.  Agree with Rechlin, I would not like it if they tore down Cabochon for this midrise, and it seems pretty unlikely (but of course, stranger things have happened, I suppose).

 

In addition to the renderings showing it on a corner, EDI's description says it is 4 stories on top of 2 stores of parking, but the renderings clearly show 5 stories on top of 2 stories of parking.

 

Also, FWIW, Harris County records do not show the property having changed hands (and the current owner, CR Cabochon Communities LLC) recorded a Deed of Trust last June.

This looks like the property they have under contract at W Dallas and Shepherd. They must just be reusing the name from a dead deal.

As SMU1213 said, looking at the road under the overlay is clearly the Shepherd Bridge from over Buffalo Bayou (thus, this is at the corner of Shepherd and W Dallas):

Excellent investigation! This makes more sense given its shown on a corner. We do know that a development is happening. You are probably right that this building might have been part of deal for that River Oaks property and they have sense taken it and are going to throw it on this site. We should probably transition this to that thread and this one will go dormant until something actually happens here.

So it looks like this will be filling in the Western portion of the property bordering Shepherd Drive, replacing The Center for Hearing and Speech.

 

Excellent location, it will have a great presence if you are driving south over the Bayou.

Wood Partners, the 2nd-largest multifamily developer and 3rd-largest multifamily construction manager in the nation according to the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), announced earlier today the groundbreaking of its newest luxury residential midrise community – Alta River Oaks – in the highly affluent River Oaks area of Houston, Texas.



Perfectly positioned at 3636 W Dallas St., the new Alta River Oaks sits amid the best addresses, with ideal access to all that the city has to offer. Just minutes from Houston’s most exclusive shopping and dining, steps from Buffalo Bayou where residents will be able to run, bike, kayak or take a scenic stroll, two and half miles from Downtown Houston’s Central Business District, and three miles from Uptown of Greenway Plaza, Alta River Oaks is set to deliver a new experience in living.

 

“The River Oaks neighborhood is among the most desired in the entire Houston area,” said Bart Barrett, Managing Director for Wood Partners. “Careful thought and consideration went into the design and interior finish decisions to maintain the integrity of what River Oaks represents. We are proud that Alta River Oaks will offer apartment homes featuring A-class finishes and premium amenities.”

 

The nearby River Oaks Shopping Center features high-end retail options and walkable grocery options – including Whole Foods and Kroger – just steps down the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets. With so many local treats, including the historic Landmark River Oaks Theatre and nearby art museums – the Rienzi Museum of Fine Arts, Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, the Rothko Chapel, the Menil Collection and others – Alta River Oaks residents will have access to unparalleled cultural and outdoor experiences.

The Alta River Oaks site is in close proximity to several of the major job hubs in Houston’s booming economy, providing a short commute to Downtown Houston, Greenway Plaza, the Galleria, the Energy Corridor, the University of Houston and Rice University as well as the healthcare and scientific research cluster at the Texas Medical Center.

Once completed, Alta River Oaks will total 364 units in a mix of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom floor plans. The residential units will feature custom finishes including two scheme choices. The premier apartment homes will have top-of-the-line GE stainless-steel appliances, gas cooktop and oven, stunning quartz countertops, custom-pattern tile backsplash, full-size in-unit washer and dryer and wood-style flooring.

 

To help residents rejuvenate and recharge, Alta River Oaks is a subtle blend of modern sophistication and high-end luxury. From the initial market review, the Interior Design and Architecture teams took careful measures to capture the true essence of what living in River Oaks means to locals and transplants alike. The address evokes a next-level expectation and Alta River Oaks delivers from street elevation, entry experience, clubhouse and amenities, through to each residence. The design aesthetics and color tones are cohesive in every material and product selection, from paver to planting. Alta River Oaks will feel like a permanent address event for the most selective renter.

 

Alta River Oaks will be home to a number of community amenities ranging from a clubroom, sky lounge, business and conference center for meetings or events, resort-style pool, fitness center with high-end equipment and outdoor kitchen areas. A tranquility courtyard will help residents engage with the natural environment and bike storage will ensure easy access to Houston’s active lifestyle.

 

Alta River Oaks apartments are expected to begin preleasing in fall 2020 with an estimated opening in the fourth quarter of the year.

Its possible this was motivated by the stiff competition that is growing on W Dallas St. All of these will be competing for the same demographics and market share, so it probably would have motivated Wood Partners to fancy this up a bit.

Oooofff.... this is not a very good looking building for such a highly sought-after and visible piece of land.  This pretty much looks like most of the generic stuff going up in Midtown...

yeah... a lot of fluff in the write up, but  the best we can hope for is it looks sharp and clean, like the assisted living a block a way (which i think looks nice).

 

It would be cool if they have nice green space in front like it shows.

There seems to be some activity on this site today. They've got one of those large dumpsters next to the main building and a bunch of vehicles on site.

@hindesky Believe I just saw you. Do you have a safety light on your bicycle?

Not me, I'm not riding my bicycle today.
