They have been working on this for a while, it's finally taking shape not sure what it's going to be but lots of beer signs.  

A food truck and a coffee trike are on the concrete pads so far. Not open yet.

It is the Bacco Beer Garden.

Something different for Houston is a plus in my book. Hoping each floor has two or more units, otherwise seems small. My sister just began her HoustonNow Tour company. I am always looking to help her add cool places to view on her routes around HTown.

I am on my phone so sorry if this has been posted, but while messing around on HAR I think I found a new development that we may have missed. 2312 Commonwealth.

It is ~ 8 stories. If someone could post a link it would be appreciated. It is on HAR, 77006 for sale

It certainly does have a Miami vibe to it. Just like that there is something different to it. We need more infill like this and not so much superblock infill. Thats how you get a very diverse and interesting cityscape.

Same here. Although they probably wont all be condo's because that market is so hard to really invest in. As long as all of them aren't super pricey and can be in a some what affordable range then that will be golden. This kind of development will certainly raise the land values of the homes around it :)

Wow, actually a pretty ballsy move by the architect. It's very dentist-off-Gessner-1983 chic. Either s/he was like, "I've got an idea no one is doing right now! Let's go all retro SW Houston early 1980's. And, let's put it in Montrose and make it a....let's see...condo." Or, s/he was like, "Golly, I haven't worked or had a new idea in 30 years, but maybe no one will notice??"

Either way, kudos to the developer and architect for coming up with a design that blows all current styles and conventions out the door! Look out Herzog and de Meuron and Zaha Hadid. The new revolution in design started right here, my friends! Print that s#*t!!

That's funny about dentist-off-Gessner-1983, but to me it doesn't look that 1980s.  The curvature in the facade sets it apart.  It's head and shoulders better than 2100 Taft, imo.

I like the increased size of the project. A 34-unit development remains small, but will add continued density inside the loop. I am hopeful that midrise condos become successful, as I think they can be a higher revenue generating alternative to townhomes (less square footage can be wasted on staircases) that will lead to more walkable neighborhoods.

It's not startlingly beautiful, but I'm also not going to join in the retch fest.  I kinda like the curves and the balcony detail, but I am SO over blue glass.

It's actually nice to have residential buildings with floor to ceiling glass. The Warwick Tower has a stupid beam that when you are sitting down you can't see the view. The architect that designed that should have to sit there in a time out for a week or so and beg for forgiveness.

Well, that's Philip Johnson for you. :P

 

Swamplot says this building is three times the size of the previous design, in part because the developer was able to buy the house next door.

 

I didn't see the article on Swamplot, but I just saw men putting a new roof on the building next door.  (The building next door facing Montrose).   Maybe they meant the building in the back, but it doesn't seem to be sold either.

Perhaps they will start or perhaps they will wait for the next cycle.....

Agreed. Could have been posted in regent's too . . .
