Galveston City Council OKs East Beach highrise

The Galveston City Council has approved a permit for a high-rise apartment building on East Beach, according to the Galveston County Daily News.

The beach-front project still will need a series of state and city permits and land-use approvals to build apartment units south of the seawall.

The $40 million to $50 million building, 601-627 Ave. L, has drawn criticism since the city’s zoning board of adjustment approved a height variance for the proposed development from 55 feet to 269 feet in January….

While the height variance would allow building a 20-story building on the beach front, Michael Gaertner, architect for the project, said the building might not extend that high.
