The Harbour Condominiums, Port Aransas, TX:
This 90,000 square foot, multi-level condominium complex was built with eighteen high-end units, an inviting pool overlooking the harbor and an outdoor entertainment area for residents. Due to its coastal location and susceptibility to hurricanes, the foundation and structural design included over 200 Auger Cast Drilled Piers that were placed 50 feet deep under a cast-in-place concrete column system and a steel reinforced Concrete Hollow Core Plank System for the upper level floors. This sturdy structure was constructed to withstand 200mph winds and a 13 foot tide surge, in accordance with the latest hurricane resistant criteria. Each includes its own individual boat slip in the marina as well as a private storage closet. Design by Paul Casseb AIA and Jaster Quintanilla Engineering.
