Novare Group Unveils Plans for SkyHouse Main Luxury Tower in Houston CBD
- Sep 25, 2014
Atlanta-based real estate developer Novare Group recently submitted plans for the development of a 24-story luxury tower in Houston’s Central Business District. Named SkyHouse Main, the tower represents the company’s second multifamily project in the CBD and the third in the city of Houston.
The new tower will rise along Main Street and will feature 336 residential units and 7,200 square feet of retail space. Similar to its counterpart SkyHouse Houston, the project will boast floor-to-ceiling glass, nine-foot-plus ceiling heights with high-end finishes, stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, wood floors, expansive balconies and high-speed Internet. In addition, consistent with the SkyHouse vision, the tower will have a “Sky House” on the 24th floor, which includes a fitness center, a club room, a pool and a grilling area.
Upon completion, the residential tower will be within walking distance of approximately 40 million square feet of office space, the Toyota Center, Minute Maid Park and BBVA Compass Stadium.
“We are excited to be working on the second tower in our SkyHouse development in downtown Houston,” said Jim Borders, president of Novare Group. “Early indications are that the market is responding well, as we thought it would, to the central business district location, public transit access, rooftop amenity package and exciting views of SkyHouse Houston. The next step is the critical mass of residents who will create a great neighborhood, and that is the vision of the city of Houston and Central Houston Inc. that we are a part of.”
The company is currently developing the SkyHouse River Oaks, which is situated in Cypress Real Estate Advisors’ new master-planned redevelopment of the Westcreek at River Oaks community in the River Oaks neighborhood in Houston. SkyHouse River Oaks broke ground in January 2014 and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.
