Drewery Place is a 27-story residential tower with a parking garage located in the midtown district of Houston. The 743,000 square-foot luxury high rise will contain 357 residential units and 13,000 square feet of retail space.
Drewery Place is the Houston midtown district’s first multifamily luxury high-rise building. It is centrally located between Houston’s two largest employment centers, Downtown and the Texas Medical Center.
The structure includes a 1-story underground basement and a 27-story concrete tower. The parking garage extends from the basement through level 7. Residential units wrap the parking garage beginning on level 3. Level 8 contains amenity space – a pool, kitchen, gardens, and berm outdoors and a fitness center with separate yoga room, projection room, and resident kitchen indoors. The upper level contains a Sky Lounge Bar where residents can enjoy Houston’s downtown skyline.
To develop a team atmosphere and set the stage for collaboration early in the process, we held a pull planning session with the owner and all members of the design team. We asked each design discipline to write down all their tasks and include a duration and any constraints such as owner decisions, design or trade partner information needs, or load calculations. This helped us identify issues very early and either resolve them or have a plan to resolve them, eliminating potential extra work caused by those issues. Our pull planning session gave all participants a better understanding of each member’s knowledge and abilities, and it set the stage for collaborative communication and problem solving moving forward.
