Portman Holdings and HKS are behind the three-tower project on a 4.1-acre site atop one of the “highest points in Midtown” where the historic H.M. Patterson & Sons Spring Hill Chapel funeral home once operated, first announced at the end of 2019.

Plans call for the tallest of three towers soaring 36-stories and the integration of the funeral home, first built in 1928.

Ground is expected to break in early-2021 but 1020 Spring Street wouldn’t come online until 2025.

Once complete, the mixed-use would include a 325-room hotel, 350 apartments, 700,000 square feet of office, and retail.

The presentation overall “was well received by the DRC, however, the committee identified several issues in need of additional study and further consideration including: streetscape configuration, number of curb-cuts along Spring Street, the setback along the north property line. a pedestrian connection through the site, and façade details.”

An updated presentation is expected within the “coming months” from Portman and HKS at which point the DRC will re-review the proposal ahead of moving 1020 Spring Street forward.

  • I wonder how much longer that Chevron will last at the opposite corner. Good memories of drunken beer runs there while in college.

  • Cool to see the comment box being used on this site to make up for the loss of Curbed.

    Overall I think the design of this is pretty cool though concerned a bit that this is a Portman building and they sure aren’t known for great street/pedestrian interaction. 2025 is a long way off….wonder why they think this will take 4 years if they break ground in 2021.

  • Pretty interesting looking tower– has kind of a transformers vibe.
    Love that the funeral home was saved!
    I hope they don’t gut the interior too bad, it’s got some very beautiful millwork etc.
