Lightbulb HOUSTON | Artesian Eclipse | 736 FT / 224 M | 58 FLOORS

Developer: Zydeco Development Corp.
Architect:
Type: Residential
Location: Welch Ave near Persa St, River Oaks
Construction Timeline: June 2017 Start Date - June 2019 Completion

*An unexpected find, in mid-2014 the developer filed a subdivision plat to create an unrestricted reserve for this development, which was later approved. No other information was known at the time.

Today, they filed a case with the FAA for the height of this building, 750' feet. Unfortunately this proposal will be met with strong opposition. The River Oaks neighborhood tried to stop a 17-story/220 foot office tower from being built just down the street.

Here's the FAA filing:

Hopefully the River Oaks NIMBYS fail at stopping this. I'd imagine a 750 ft would rile up the militia more so than a 17 floor structure.

Is this residential? If so that would make it taller than both The Austonian and The Independent in Austin - and so the tallest residential building in Texas.

Well after looking at Google View a 750 foot tower seems out of place for the surrounding neighborhood but it is Houston without Zoning though.
No renderings?

Guess you have to take the good with the bad on this one on zoning and all. Rather this built in downtown. There is a highrise not far from this site though.

No renderings yet. The tallest building in the immediate area is The Huntingdon at 503' feet. Built in 1984, it's also just down the street from this. The building most likely will be residential, but no confirmation on that yet. It'll have amazing views of Downtown, Uptown, TMC, etc.

Will be interesting to see how this one plays out. I hope it pulls through.

Some renderings from have surfaced, which may not be final. Doubt they'll stick with this design as the neighborhood would find it very insulting.

It looks like a rocket.

And are these toilet plungers?

Thats the funniest thing i've seen all day! Toilet plungers connected to an absolutely ridiculous looking building. It looks so strange it kinda looks good, kinda like the watts towers in LA.

That has to be a joke, please tell me it's a joke. That's like out of some hellish 1980s version of future skyscrapers and or Dubai.

Even the name is trippy. I think they should build it. They should build the s**t out of it.

Well, that's gaudy in an Abraj al-Bait sort of way. They do give themselves a whole lot of lead time on this one starting out of the ground - 2017? This must have been pitched to EB-5 prospects.

I see - they're going to tease us with this and then do an "and now for something completely different", similar to what happened to the Alessandra.

Zydeco's website suggests they've never done a big project before. They're from New Mexico and most of their previous projects are in the 2-3 story range. They may be in way over their heads.
