Cay­don tops out Mid­town tower

Houston Chronicle - - BUSINESS -

Aus­tralian de­vel­oper Cay­don cel­e­brated the top­ping out of its 27-story apart­ment tower at 2850 Fan­nin in Mid­town on Thurs­day, a lit­tle more than a year af­ter break­ing ground.

Hoar Con­struc­tion, as gen­eral con­trac­tor, reached the fi­nal height of the 357-unit build­ing, de­signed by Hous­ton-based Ziegler Cooper Ar­chi­tects.

The pro­ject, the first in the U.S. for Melbourne-based Cay­don, broke ground in Novem­ber 2017. Since then, about 425 tons of con­crete has been poured, which is al­most 5½ times as heavy as a space shut­tle, Hoar Con­struc­tion said.

“We put a great deal of thought and ef­fort into our first U.S. res­i­den­tial tower to en­sure it cap­tures the essence of the lo­ca­tion and it com­ple­ments the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity,” Cay­don chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Der­rek LeRouax said in an an­nounce­ment. “To be top­ping out 2850 Fan­nin is a tremen­dous achieve­ment, and Hoar Con­struc­tion worked dili­gently to bring our vi­sion to life. This mo­men­tous mile­stone brings us one step closer in cre­at­ing a des­ti­na­tion for peo­ple to live, work, play and visit, adding to the lively spirit of Mid­town.”

Lo­cated by Mid­town Park along the Metro­Rail, the tower will have Euro­pean-style in­te­ri­ors, re­sort-style ameni­ties, a fit­ness cen­ter and yoga stu­dio, a dog park and a re­tail plaza. Open­ing is planned in sum­mer 2019.
