The Ivy and The James are two luxury apartment towers off Mid Lane and Westheimer Road in River Oaks. The 20-story Ivy tower boasts more than 200 units and features a range of amenities such as an infinity pool, private residential bar and concierge service. The James is an eight-story mid-rise tower with 344 units. Residents of The James can enjoy an on-site library, yoga studio and coffee bar.
Our team assisted the client through the Joint Referral Committee (JRC) process to facilitate the abandonment of Bettis Road in addition to relocating a storm sewer system with an outfall location in an adjacent Harris County Flood Control District right-of-way. Our team also relocated overhead powerlines and provided traffic mitigation measures to offset the development’s impact at the intersection of Westheimer and Mid Lane.
Additional features of the project included coordinating the installation of private street lights and developing and getting approval for an emergency access plan.
