United States National Bank Building

Crews in coming weeks plan to begin work building 64 luxury apartment units within the United States National Bank Building, 2201 Market St., in Galveston.

Hammer time: Six years after paying cash for the United States National Bank Building in the island’s downtown, an international businessman is preparing to begin a $9.5 million makeover of the property, including adding luxury apartments and an event center.

Crews in two to four weeks will begin work on converting the fourth through 11th floors into 64 high-end apartments and adding a rooftop event center with a bar and pool, along with a street-level spa, wellness center and yoga studio, developer Hadar Goldman said from London in a telephone interview.

There isn't a website yet, but I will follow up with more apartment details, floorpans and possibly architectural renderings in the next couple of weeks.

"Goldman envisions a “smart building,” he has said. In such buildings, tenants can use their smartphones to control the heating, air conditioning, security and lighting". Great timing with Leonard Woolsey's excellent editorial on the impact of "smart everything". The "undiscovered country" lies just ahead.
