Correct... The one apartment right across from the Flying Fish and Rodeo Goat spots is seven stories. The ground level units are actually two story 'town-home' style... which is a new concept for the area. There are also some two story town-home style units on top of the parking garage, with some courtyard space in between.
Most other buildings are four to five stories, mixed with some more traditional town-home style apartments wrapped around (hiding) the neighboring office parking garage. According to the site plan, some of the next residential buildings to go up should be mid-rise. We'll see if they stick to that.
Other than the massive Signet Jewelers parking lot (which itself was supposed to be a garage), there is very little surface parking in The Sound area, and the architecture is certainly better than the initial phase of Cypress Waters. While it's technically still tilt wall construction, they have set some industry firsts (tallest tilt section in the state, and some others), and incorporated various materials to disguise the fact that it's mostly concrete.
Also, the streets are very pedestrian friendly, with no turning lanes, curb bumouts, wide sidewalks, textured crossings, and lots of parallel parking and other traffic calming measures. It should be quite the little pedestrian oasis when done... surrounded by a sea of auto-oriented development, of course. lol
