Aspire Post Oak: Multifamily High-Rise At 1616 Post Oak Blvd.


Recommended Posts

I like how the three sections vary slightly in height from each other.


Gensler was inspired by the three tiered combo of The Wilshire, Skyhouse and Arabella across 610 :)


Way to go with the design sleuthing as always.  Didn't even take 24 hours to go from hearsay to HAIF.

I love it. Love that'll be all glass and that there will be retail in the base. 


That said, I avoid Uptown as much as possible because of the traffic and I cannot imagine how much worse it's going to get when people start living/working in this, the Astoria, the Post Oak, Amegy Tower, Belfiore, and Five Post Oak.

What do they have against it?  It is beautiful.


The view from the south side units is really breathtaking and will be blocked. They'll be taking a pretty big financial hit when this building goes up. There are a dozen units for sale that have been on the market for a long time that aren't selling, and won't unless they steeply discount them or get a really dumb buyer. Depending on the placement of 1660, the southeast units may not have as much of a blocked view, but you're still going to have people looking directly in your window.
