The Hawthorne (5656 San Felipe): New 17-Story Condo High-Rise

Recommended Posts

I appreciate you sharing your living conditions. I imagine after living in a large ground floor home it took some time to get used to all of the changes. 

I also feel for what you are experiencing with a loved one who you are taking care of. Our mother in law lived with us until her recent death and I know my wife was 

especially happy that she was able to keep her at home and we watched over her. She was 93 and lived a very full life, and you are doing a great thing in being close for her.

I wish for you and your family the most pleasant and comforting times.

They wouldn't allow me to take a photo of the physical model. Thought that was weird. 

 

Here's the model posted on their Instagram.

Meanwhile, the 67-unit, 17-story Hawthorne, which is slated to start construction in the Tanglewood district by late March and is scheduled for completion in early 2022, is approximately 20 percent pre-sold, according to Bland. The Hawthorne will be Pelican Builders’ 12th high-rise condominium project.

I like that design but why is there a wall separating it from the sidewalk?  That forces long detours for pedestrians and discourages walking.  Walkability is a key urban feature.

People who buy $1.2 million condos do not want people that have to walk places anywhere near them.

Chacun à son goût, but I can't fathom paying $1.2 million and having neighbors that close to me.

There is a Metro stop at that corner on San Felipe.  It may also cut of traffic noise and having to stare at backed up traffic when they arrive to drop their car off.
