Houston’s glitzy high-rise building boom is getting a new, more understated entry. 6300 Woodway — a previously unpublicized project from Pelican Builders — aims to make high-rise living more comfy.

That’s right, comfy.

In a rising sea of gleaming glass towers with over-the-top amenities and high-tech touches galore, this new 17-story building sticks out with its commitment to more “warm” and home-like environs. Especially if you’re home happens to be one of the nearby mansions of Memorial and Tanglewood.

Shouldn't the title be the homely!
I don't mind that it is not a glass edifice, but the podium really looks like a mausoleum. I think some form of openings (windows) or detailing could really help the podium.

The mausoleum pedestal is a popular concept for certain Houston highrises inspired by Randall Davis. It contains parking. I'm not sure how it ended up at this proposed building.
