HOUSTON - Thor Equities poured the foundation for a luxury tower it is building in the Upper Kirby neighborhood.
The building will be part of Kirby Collection, a 1 million-sf mixed-use project with residential units, offices and shops at 3200 Kirby Dr.
The 25-story residential tower will have 199 apartments, including seven two-story townhomes and seven two-story loft units with private yards.
Trucks poured 6,000 cubic yards of concrete with 500 tons of rebar to create the tower's 7-foot thick foundation. The continuous pour took eight hours and involved 150 trucks and more than 200 workers. Coins stamped with the Thor Equities logo were put in the foundation as a symbol of good luck.
The development is scheduled to open in fourth quarter 2017.
