W 34th is primed for development, and could work well in terms of walkability if developed in the right way. Nice to see a developer planning ahead for increased density in a spot like this.

 

Washington Avenue started getting development like this about 10 years ago and is still, at the current rate, about 50 years away from all the developments connecting and being walkable. I don't want to think about the timetable for 34th Street.

Really, you’re only talking about the stretch of W 34th between TC Jester and N Shepherd, which is much shorter. There are already developments on the way like the Stomping Grounds going in more or less across the street from this proposed development, and the new shopping center at the southeast corner of Ella and W 34th. The main variable would be how long the businesses in some of the commercial warehouses along this stretch stay active and whether/when they decide to relocate.

Exposed wood is becoming more and more of a thing. Perhaps Luminare can provide some insight. I first remember this trend happening in Lake Flato's project's in the 00's.

 

 

hopefully it doesn't looked dated in 10 years... wood can go gray very quickly.

North of Houston Heights, Hines has assembled six commercial lots in the 1000 block of West 34th Street for a multifamily project referred to as Garden Oaks Multifamily on the project documents. In the conceptual architectural renderings submitted by EDI International (see below), it is also referred to as 34th Street.

 

All of the commercial lots have structures in place that must be removed, including the four-building complex known as West 34th Business Park.

While the residential component for Garden Oaks is four stories, the parking garage component will have seven levels and space for 556 vehicles. It will also have two enclosed courtyards, with a pool in the west courtyard.

 

This appears to be one building on the site plan, but it is subdivided into five contiguous (adjoining) structures and is referred to as five buildings.
  • Building 1: 21,349 SF
  • Building 2: 15,512 SF (Area doesn’t include garage)
  • Building 3: 21,739 SF
  • Building 4: 23,960 SF
  • Building 5: 26,715 SF

Hines obtained a building setback reduction on the south end of the project site along Gardendale Drive, narrowing it to 10 feet from the code-required 20 feet. Gardendale Drive is a narrow neighborhood street ending in a cul-de-sac that runs parallel to 34th Street. Hines also got a 20-foot right of way dedication along Gardendale instead of the required 30 feet.

Staff Comments:

“The applicant is proposing a 382-unit multi family structure that will take primary access from W. 34th Street. (Hines) is opting into the performance standards for a reduced building line of 15 feet along W. 34th Street. The applicant is providing a 7-foot unobstructed sidewalk with a 4-foot safety buffer along W. 34th Street and will have a total distance of 21 feet from the (back of curb) to the proposed structure, with a minimum 15-foot pedestrian realm.

“Due to the use and building design, the proposed dwelling units along Gardendale will provide an active use, with pedestrian access, that will provide a more attracted pedestrian realm and more eyes on the street. The applicant is providing a 6-foot unobstructed sidewalk with a minimum 4-foot safety buffer with street trees located within. The distance from the back of curb to the proposed structure will be approximately 23 feet with a minimum 15-foot pedestrian realm.”
