This was the proposed development Behind the Pink Wall at 220 residential units.
And this is the newest proposal and compromise — 165 units. Preston Tower and The Athena (where Steve Wolens and Laura Miller own a unit) look taller in comparison. Do you think this will make the homeowners who live near the Pink Wall happy? Again, Transwestern has agreed to keep the northern part of the development at three stories, the current zoning. In the second rendering, that would be the building to the left. The southern segment would be a four story tall complex that would require a zoning change, and Transwestern also wants to include in the zoning that the minimum apartment complex size is 1000 square feet.
As for the devoted traffic lane, if you look to the far right on the lower rendering, Transwestern would give TXDOT enough land to create a dedicated left hand turn lane from Preston onto Northwest Highway. That would help resident coming off of Averill Way and turning south. Residents turning north would have to be very, very cautious during peak traffic times. Remember, there will be more residents living there than there are currently, in a total of 36 units, but only 20 more units (so like 40 people more) than under current zoning.
