Another Millennial Development: The Spires Condo Tower on Holcombe overlooking Brays Bayou with view of Medical Center and Hermann Park is getting company

The existing 40-story condo tower on Holcombe at Cambridge (The Spires aka Spires the Condominium) is getting company: A 21-floor residential tower with three wings extending in different directions. Three stories are done so far. It's branded for millennials, or so it would seem. The millennial moniker already marks a completed residential project in River Oaks, though one that did not aim high enough to scrape the Houston sky. High Street will do, - Millennium High Street

Another millennial project is underway on Kirby South of the TMC.

What's nearby: Brays Bayou with a faux draw bridge 

It will be a while ... 
The faux draw bridge (one interpretation, but not the only reasonable one)
over Brays Bayou whose name few know/



(Not yet on Google Maps either as of the date of this post)



The bridge with the pergola-like structures on the sides
(but no vines or other greenery, at least  not yet)
 is  named in honor of Richard E. Wainerdi

Who's that?

The dedication plaque will tell (click to enlarge) 


The Brays Bayou Hike & Bike Trial is nearby,
and Hermann Park is not far either
