Block 98

Petite Parcel - 670 Units Per Acre

Squeaking a desirable apartment tower with enviable amenities into a tiny site and achieving maximum efficiencies is no small feat. Trammell Crow’s Block 98 development is a 42-story park-oriented development. It is located opposite the Marriott Marquis Houston to the east and HESS Tower to the south whose garage shares the block on which Block 98 sits. The skinny site ekes out a street-level glimpse at Discovery Green from the intersection of Crawford and Walker streets – and here is where the point tower typology shines! – Placing the residential units atop a podium elevates all the residential units to maximize their urban and park views.
