Pelican Builder is moving forward on several luxury condominium projects this year, the Houston-based residential developer said Feb. 1.

The first of those projects, Westmore, broke ground on Jan. 28. Initial plans for Westmore, a midrise at 2323 W. Main St., were originally announced in August 2019. As of February 2020 — just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit — the groundbreaking was expected in the summer of 2020

The seven-story project will contain 33 units, most of which will range from 1,560 to 1,800 square feet and start at $960,000. The four penthouses will average 2,500 square feet and start at $1.7 million. 

Houston-based Mirador Group designed Westmore with midcentury modern architecture, a press release states. Residences will feature contemporary interiors with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, pre-wiring across all residences for smart home technology and Bosch stainless steel appliances in the kitchens. Other amenities will include same-floor storage, terraces, optional pet porch potty upgrades and a fitness center. Houston-based G.T. Leach Constructors is building the project. 

“Today’s groundbreaking represents a significant milestone for Westmore in its development,” said Pelican Builders founder Robert Bland. “More broadly, the occasion is symbolic of Pelican Builders’ optimism for what lies ahead in 2021. Westmore is indicative of our steadfast commitment to Houston, which is a city of unwavering resilience. The past year has been extremely tough on everyone, but brighter days are ahead.”

Elsewhere in Houston, Pelican Builders also previously planned to break ground on a 17-story tower in the Galleria/Tanglewood area in 2020. The Hawthorne, named for "Tanglewood Tales" author Nathaniel Hawthorne, is now slated to move forward in 2021, according to the building's website.

Pelican Builders' luxury midrise condominium project Westmore broke ground Jan. 28 with a small ceremony at the Upper Kirby site.

“Today’s groundbreaking represents a significant milestone for Westmore in its development,” Pelican Builders founder Robert Bland said in a news release. “Westmore is indicative of our steadfast commitment to Houston, which is a city of unwavering resilience. The past year has been extremely tough on everyone, but brighter days are ahead.”

The groundbreaking was originally slated for summer 2020, but plans changed amid the unfolding coronavirus pandemic. Construction was anticipated to take about 20 months.

The Westmore, 2323 W. Main St., Houston, will have 33 residences ranging from 1,560 to 1,800 square feet and starting at $960,000. The building's four penthouses average 2,500 square feet and can be fetched for $1.7 million.

The building's mid-century modern-inspired design is the work of the Houston-based Mirador Group. The general contractor for the project is G.T. Leach Constructors.

The Westmore sales center has moved to 3400 Morningside Drive, Houston.

This is kind of random of and off topic, but how did Houston end up with a really obscure 2nd Main Street (W. Main). It's obviously in the footprint of the original city so it must be substantially old and the name must have a purpose.

I always just assumed that it branched off of Main St. and headed west to connect the "suburbs" of Montrose, Hyde Park, Boulevard Oaks, etc. to downtown. As the area developed over time, Richmond and W. Alabama incidentally became major arteries instead of W. Main.

Good news, they have started working on this again. Just left Mister Car Wash and I drive by this afterwards. Couldn't this time because they has an 18 wheeler being unloaded and he was blocking the street. I saw somewhere online that they had a covid issue that shut down work.

On Thurs. I talked with a HPD officer directing traffic here and asked if he knew when the crane was going up. He said 1st weekend in June. They are going to close the street off at Kirby, Richon and Revere. 2 officers will be needed but since there are so many townhomes and houses around here he said they are going to have to let people out occasionally.  Took this pic today.

Yes the threat of thunderstorms and specifically lightning last weekend made them postpone the tower crane installation. I asked how many sections high they were going and was told 7, they were adding the 3rd when I was there.
