“There are many attributes that make this property appealing, which is why we are very excited about the project,” Philip Morgan, Morgan’s vice president of development, told MHN. “We’re focused on delivering the best living experience we can to our residents, starting with site selection through design and construction and finally transitioning into the hands of our great property management leasing staff.”
Standing five stories tall, Pearl Washington consists of one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 652 square feet to 1,443 square feet. All units have balconies and are situated over two levels of garage parking.
Amenities include high-end, wood-style floors, quality unit finishes, USB charging ports, Nest thermostats, a business café, state-of-the-art fitness club and private fitness studio.
There’s also a Vegas-inspired swimming pool with private cabanas and an expansive sun deck overlooking Washington Avenue and downtown, plus two more courtyards with hammock swings, a bocce ball court, grilling areas, and a dog park.
The mid-rise is conveniently located at the corner of Washington Avenue and T.C. Jester Boulevard, close to the popular Houston Heights neighborhood. Downtown Houston and the Galleria/Uptown are only three miles away.
“With a prime location in the heart of the Washington Avenue corridor, we are within walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping and Memorial Park,” Morgan said. “I-10 and Memorial Drive Corridors are on either side of Washington Avenue so getting to Downtown, Upper Kirby or the Galleria area are short commutes as well.”
According to Morgan, Washington Avenue is filled with a lot of smaller sites, which makes it tough to build large-scale multifamily projects.
“We were able to assemble a couple of land parcels which makes this development very unique,” he said. “Up and down Washington Avenue, there are a lot of smaller prime retail locations which is what has helped shape the character of Washington Avenue as being such an attractive place to live.”
The community was co-developed with LCB Holdings, Inc., and Wells Fargo provided the construction financing.
