HOUSTON — Thor Equities has completed the residential mat foundation pour at Kirby Collection, a new mixed-use development at 3200 Kirby Drive in Houston. The foundation is seven feet thick and consists of 6,000 cubic yards of concrete with 500 tons of rebar.
The continuous pour took eight hours to complete and involved 150 dedicated trucks, six pump trucks and more than 200 workers. The team involved in the mat pour included general contractor E.E. Reed Construction, Keystone Structural Concrete, Campbell Concrete & Materials, ECS Texas, HiTech Electric, Schnabel Foundation Company and developer Thor Equities.
Located in the Upper Kirby District near Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood, the 1 million-square-foot project will feature a 25-story, 385,000-square-foot residential tower with 199 apartments including seven two-story townhomes, and seven two-story loft spaces with private yards.
The residences will overlook a deck with more than an acre of landscaped amenities including a pool with cabanas, fire pits and a bar area. The penthouse level will feature a Skyview Suite available to all residents, offering a chef’s kitchen and views of the Houston skyline. Kirby Collection’s 13-story, 210,000-square-foot Class A office building is located near the Galleria/Uptown District, Greenway Plaza and the Texas Medical Center.
In addition, two levels of retail space totaling 65,000 square feet will be home to restaurants, nightlife and shopping. The development is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2017. Richard Keating Architecture is the design architect, Dianna Wong Architecture + Design is the interior designer and Houston-based Kirksey is the architect of record. Walter P Moore is the structural engineer.
