Project in Brief: Originally named as "The Horizon", this apartment tower is proposed by GID Development which has put forward the adjacent Regent Square plan. A summary from their website...

Quote:
GID Development is currently developing The Sovereign – Houston’s premier luxury high-rise apartment tower in the heart of the Inner Loop.

The Sovereign is a 290 unit luxury apartment tower consisting of 21 stories featuring panoramic views of the downtown Houston skyline, the Buffalo Bayou, Memorial Park, River Oaks, and the Galleria. The building will be Houston’s most advanced high-rise residential product and is being designed to achieve LEED Sliver Certification. The Sovereign will offer the most extensive residential amenity program in Houston including an 8th floor, 30,000 square foot amenity deck with sweeping views from the building’s pool, fountains, Jacuzzi, outdoor fireplaces, numerous cabanas and lounge areas, outdoor fitness areas, private resident vegetable and herb gardens, and extensive landscaping. Residents will also enjoy the private use of a state-of-the-art fitness club, library and cyber lounge, business center, club lounge, demonstration kitchen, private catering kitchen, private dining room, private theater room, as well as a sophisticated bar and gaming area. The building will also include pet spa areas such as a dog wash/dry facilities, pet grooming room, and a private and secure pet-friendly park featuring fountains, exercise areas, benches, and landscaping. Resident services will include concierge, valet parking, and on-site management, leasing, and maintenance teams.
