Morgan Group Finishes Houston Apartment Development
- Aug 28, 2014
Houston—Work has been completed on Pearl Midtown, a new-construction apartment community in Houston. The property, developed by the Morgan Group, includes 154 units ranging from 499 square feet to 1,439 square feet with a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom units.
Pearl Midtown is on 1.15 acres at 3101 Smith St. in the city’s Midtown district, and is bounded by Elgin and Louisiana. Midtown is directly southwest of the Houston CBD, and according to a survey of about half a million college students and recent graduates by Niche, the area’s the favorite neighborhood in Houston for Millennials.
The property’s units are arranged in four stories over two podium levels of garage parking featuring eVgo car charging stations. Some of the apartment homes have Bluetooth sound systems, wrap-around balconies and unobstructed downtown views. Architect Wallace Garcia Wilson designed the development.
Other amenities include quartz countertops, walk-in showers, a business café and fitness studio. Residents also have access to a resort-style infinity swimming pool with outdoor kitchen and sun deck. Pearl Midtown is the first residential development to incorporate the city’s B-cycle bike sharing program, which has relocated one of its stations to the development. The apartments are also three blocks from light-rail transportation.
The Morgan Group is a multifamily specialist headquartered in Houston, focusing on development and construction nationwide, as well as third-party property management. Since 1988, Morgan has developed 16,000 multifamily units, and currently it has a $470 million project pipeline in development or under construction.
