This 304-unit development is wrapped around a six-level, access-controlled parking garage that includes a total of 484 spaces. Proposed common area facilities include a clubroom, leasing center, demonstration kitchen, conditioned corridors, swimming pool and conversation pool, two additional highly landscaped and hardscaped courtyards, fitness center and business center.

The Texas Medical Center (TMC), one of the largest and most prestigious medical treatment and research centers in the world, has been experiencing significant new growth for the past two years. The TMC also established, in 1999, a 50-year master plan detailing a comprehensive strategy toward institutional growth, expansion of services, and enhancement of the physical environment. The TMC is beginning to see the initial fruits of the plan with the beautification of streets, new office buildings, the introduction of the first light rail in Houston (connecting the TMC to Downtown Houston to the north and Reliant Park to the south), and renovation of existing buildings. The future campus will further integrate a mixed-use (live/work) community, reflect a commitment to multi-discipline collaboration, ensure access with an emphasis on public transit, among other goals.

Phase I: 304 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units totaling 278,520sf (an average unit size of 916sf) sit on 4.14 acres of an 8.38-acre site.
