HOUSTON (Houston Business Journal) – Residential towers are popping up all over — one near the Galleria and two Downtown.

Pelican Builders Inc. plans to break ground on The Wilshire, a 17-story luxury condominium tower near the Galleria, in May.

The building will be at 2049 Westcreek Ln. on the site of the former Westcreek apartment complex. Pelican purchased the land, immediately south of SkyHouse River Oaks, about a year ago.

It will have 96 residences ranging from $800,000 to $2.99 million. Two-bedroom units will average 1,300 sf with two bathrooms and 1,750 sf with 2.5 bathrooms. Typical three-bedroom units will average 2,300 sf. Twelve three-bedroom penthouses will average 3,500 sf.

Pelican is developing the tower with an affiliate of The Carlyle Group. Locally based architecture firm Kirksey designed the tower.

Meanwhile, Downtown, Dallas-based Todd Interests plans to renovate the 21-story Great Southwest Building, originally known as the Petroleum Building. It is on the eastern half of Block 72, bounded by Texas Ave., Austin St. and Capitol St.

The tower will be renovated into 162 residential units. Plans also call for the addition of 11 townhouses on Austin and Capitol, all lining an internal parking garage.

Also Downtown, Illinois-based Marquette Cos. is developing a 304-unit, 24-story apartment tower for Block 114, bounded by Commerce, Jackson, Franklin and Chenevert Streets, just a block northeast of Minute Maid Park.
