The size of the building makes me think they aren't building on the entire lot, or are they not including the parking garage in this render?

 Hines obtained variances from the Houston Planning Commission on two mid-rise projects–a four-story multifamily north of Greater Heights, and a seven-story senior living tower in the Upper Kirby District.

 

The two projects came before the commission February 14, both with recommendations for approval from city staff.

 

The Upper Kirby Senior Living project is to be located on a lot at the southeast corner of Richmond Avenue and Revere Street.  The project site is currently the home of an auto dealership, Momentum Audi at 2315 Richmond Ave., and extensive demolition of existing structures will be required. There is also a Momentum Volkswagon of Upper Kirby dealership directly west of the project site in this mixed commercial neighborhood.

 

However, higher density residential has also been developing. Just to the north at 2300 Richmond Ave. is the five-story UK apartment complex.

Hines requested a reduction of the building line to 5 feet from the standard 10 feet for this neighborhood.

 

“Because of the unusual physical characteristics affecting this site, particularly the unusually large amount of public right-of-way that has been previously dedicated, the applicant is unable to make reasonable use of their land without requesting a variance along the southern property line to allow for a five-foot setback.

 

“Since the original rights-of-way were dedicated, the subject tract has lost over 18-percent of its total volume due to public right-of-way dedication along Richmond, Revere and Portsmouth.”

 

The architect, Munoz Albin, drew up an odd-shaped ground floor plan that looks like a backward “J” with serif. Although the upper floors would be at 5 feet from the sidewalk along Richmond Avenue and Portsmouth Street, there would be an open-air plaza off the southwest corner of Revere and Portsmouth. The parking structure is within the south side of the building, with an entrance ramp on Portsmouth.
