Long way off, but these 3 acres (FWBP article by A. Lee Graham below) will be the site for either multifamily residences or a hotel, not an office building.  So what kind of housing or hotel is compatible with the Pier 1 building?

This article has some drawings of the proposed Pier One apartment complex. http://www.star-tele...le37251282.html

I first had doubts about another low-rise apartment complex utilizing scarce land downtown.  But, having seen the design of this project and its location adjacent to the high-rise tower, it now strikes me as being good land usage.

they have "broken ground" on this, at least in the way of moving in heavy equipment & putting up fences - starting to tear up the existing visitor parking (where the new building should go) and building new visitor parking on the downtown-facing side of the building

You will have a great view of the construction of this, Texoma.

So according to the renderings, the building is on the opposite side of the Pier 1 building in relation to the area they are digging up. Am I just looking at the rendering wrong?

The digging is for for a new parking lot, since the existing parking lot is where the apartments will be. You are looking at the renderings right.

The new visitors lot is complete. It's a nice little thing for a parking lot, well landscaped and a nice walkway lined up with the center of the building. The fences and construction equipment have now moved to the apartment site, so I'd say it's under constructoin.

They had dug a deep hole into the hillside for the garage. It's beggining to come out of the hole now.

Coming along. I'm liking this a lot. Feels as if it is connecting Pier 1 to downtown, rather than it just being a tower in a park.

I can honestly see a lot more being built on that land in the future...

Also coming to Pier 1/Chesapeake tower's neighborhood is that high-rise residential building (Henderson and West Pecan).

Johnfwd, I'm sure you meant Henderson and West Peach Streets.  They do intersect, and that is where the new apartment building is scheduled to be constructed.

 

Jeriat, the Pier 1 property initially had space planned for three office buildings.  Obviously, the market has changed, but two of the three sites now have a building on them.  The remainder of the property sits in the Trinity River flood plain.
