Trammell Crow Plans To Turn Upper Kirby Strip Mall Into Luxury Residences
High Street Residential will build a mixed-use building with 209 residential units where a strip mall currently stands in the Greenway/Upper Kirby area.
The complex at 2311 Westheimer Road will be called Residences of Westheimer and offer ground-floor retail. High Street Residential is a subsidiary of Dallas-based Trammell Crow Co.
The project is projected to cost $97M, or about $464K per residential unit, the article states. Residences of Westheimer will feature nine stories of residential, four levels of parking and 2.8K SF of retail, per plans filed with the city.
The strip mall site at Westheimer Road and Revere Street has several businesses still in operation, including an antique shop, a dry cleaner and a restaurant, though construction on the complex will begin in February. Completion is slated for December 2024, according to The Real Deal.
This is not the first attempt to build a multifamily complex at this location.
Stanmore Partners had planned to break ground in 2019 on Stanmore River Oaks, an 11-story, 184-unit apartment building, according to Stanmore Partners’ website, as reported by houstonarchitecture.com. The start date was then pushed to 2020, and plans for the project no longer exist on Stanmore Partners’ website.
The developers had wanted a variance to build closer to Westheimer than typically allowed and widen sidewalks, the Houston Chronicle reported.
