Alexan Capitol | 350 Feet | 30-Stories | Proposed

Recommended Posts

I posted about this project in the proposed projects thread earlier today, but it should be well over the 300' threshold that I use for creating threads for individual projects.  Based on information available from the city, it will have 300 apartments and 13,000 sq. ft. of office space.  A drawing of the ground floor shows that the parking will be underground and the tower portion (highlighted by dotted line) of the project will be built on a slight angle to avoid a Capitol View Corridor:

The project's location is in the NE corner of Downtown where there are very few high-rises due to the Capitol View Corridor height restrictions:

There are no renderings or very many building specifics yet.  But there has been recent building permit activity related to zoning for this project. Based on available information in the permits that have been filed, this looks like another 30-40 story point tower project.  It'll have 299 apartments and 13,000 sq. ft. of office space on top of several parking levels..

The Planning Commission votes on the zoning change for this project on Tuesday (08/08). It needs to be rezoned to Central Business District to allow for a 30-story tower.  Two adjacent sites were recently rezoned to CBD, so this should easily pass. This neglected far NE corner of Downtown is area is getting ready to boom with around 10 new towers.

The site plan has been released.  This project will be Trammell Crow Residential's Alexan apartment brand and will be know as Alexan Capitol.  It will also feature a brick veneer which will give it a different look from all of the other residential towers going up. Here are the elevations:

Recent document filings with the city have updated start dates from the developers of several projects.  This one is currently set for March 2018.

Ugh.  They used an old skyline photo for the backdrop.  Anyway, this one will go up along I-35 in an ugly downtown dead zone populated with a lot of urban campers.  Either this or the nearby Mirabeau Hotel project should be the first of at least 10 towers going up in this relatively small area.  That should clean up this area and add some life to it.
