HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Arch-Con Construction announced it has topped out the seven-story, 742,000-SF Buffalo Heights District mixed-use development at the intersection of Washington Avenue and South Heights Boulevard.
The Buffalo Heights District, owned by the Gordy family and developed by Midway, includes a mixed-use project designed by Ziegler Cooper Architects. A 96,000-SF urban prototype H-E-B will be located on the ground floor. The second floor will have more than 111,000 SF of parking for H-E-B customers.
The third floor will act as the first floor for One Buffalo Heights, the 36,000-SF office building, with separate parking for residents and office tenants.
“As lifelong Houstonians, the Gordy family wanted to create a unique place where people can work, shop, play and live,” said Jonathan Brinsden, CEO, Midway. “This location in the Washington Corridor will allow people to enjoy the trails on the bayou and the more than 1,500 acres of parkland in the urban core of the city.”
The next steps for Arch-Con Construction are the completion of the brick façade and windows on the apartments, the aluminum glass curtain wall on the office portion and the H-E-B storefront.
“We are at an exciting point in the construction process,” said Bryan Tufts, vice president of Arch-Con Construction. “The focus has been on the structure, and now we are able to focus on the exterior skin and interior details.”
The top five floors of the mixed-use building include the St. Andrie, an upscale apartment community of 232 units wrapped around outdoor courtyards.
