Bluebonnet Circle Condos?
Posted 02 August 2007 - 10:41 AM
From the S-T: An $8 million condominium development on South University Drive will move forward despite protests by residents who say the 59-unit project will overwhelm already tight parking in the area just south of Bluebonnet Circle in Fort Worth.
On Wednesday, Austin-based Hammond Jones Real Estate Development asked the Board of Adjustment to allow the project's three buildings and 208 parking spaces to exceed the zoning ordinance's open-space requirement, which is meant to provide adequate green space for residents.

There is a street somewhere in the Westcliff/Bluebonnet area named after Rashti as I recall.
I am not certain I understand the neighbors' concerns over 59 units and the attendant parking load... aren't there many more rental apartments there already or at least some similar number? Again, I am uncertain how much existing housing will be razed to make room for the development, so it may be a well-founded concern.
Interestingly, about 8 or 10 years ago, a little pie-shaped sliver of a lot had a for-sale sign on it and it was located on the southeast corner where University Dr. intersects with the south edge of the circle... right behind a dry cleaner as I recall. Hmm? I wondered at the time if there was enough square footage to do anything with the lot, maybe build a small office building, so I called the realtor's number and talked to a young lady who seemed to know almost nothing about the lot, had a kid screaming in the background, so I let the idea drop. This would have been a small parcel of land south of the alley, not the adjacent parking area to the north and east of the northeastern most apartment building. I don't recall ever getting a square footage figure.
Then, not so many years ago, I noticed another pie shaped residential lot on the west side of the cirlce not far from the fish restaurant, found out who was paying taxes on it, and wrote him a letter... no response. I thought it was sort of an interesting piece of land.
Bluebonnet Circle... a very neat little area and well located. I hope it all works out for the best over there.

I'm not sure of the exact dimensions of the land, but 59 condos sounds like a pretty low density. Makes me think the design won't be very urban.

A shot of the back of the units on the West side of University:
Shooting South from the circle, if you look closely, you can see a number of police cars doing a spot check for seat belts, inspection sticker, and registration infractions - which I haven't seen in a long time.
These certainly aren't high end units by any means and the parking is going to be tight.
