In case you missed it… This year’s CSI Houston Chapter fall tour took place October 23 at the Kirby Collection, a swanky new mixed use development prominently situated on Kirby Drive. We had the pleasure of being hosted by David Rendon, project manager with Thor Equities who guided us through the striking, elliptical-shaped 25-story residential tower containing 199 luxury apartments with spectacular views of downtown. The residential tower is part of a larger development being constructed by E.E. Reed Construction including a 232,000 gross square feet 13-story Class-A office tower, 67,000 square feet of retail and a 6-level parking garage. Estimated completion is first quarter of 2018 and it is slated to achieve LEED Silver certification under LEED BD+C: Core and Shell v3 – LEED 2009.
After the tour the group gathered for a networking and social happy hour at Carrabba’s. Crane Composites generously sponsored a table top where Jacob Carr and Robert Nelson displayed the latest in FRP products.
Stay tuned for the spring tour in 2018 which will be held at the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern.
