Spring has officially sprung in Houston, and with it a little extra sneezing and a highly-anticipated ‘new properties’ blog by yours truly! We’ve all got a little extra time in our hands these days, so we wanted to offer you something to pass the time; call it ‘virtual window shopping,’ if you will. Without further ado, here’s the dirt on five brand new properties hitting the Houston market this season!
If one of these seems like your jam, or you’re wanting to leverage a free Smart City apartment locator to help you navigate and lease your next place during this time, reach out to us by:
The Parker (Rice Military)
Rice Military’s newest apartment addition, The Parker, opened its doors to residents earlier this month, offering with it beautiful rustic finishes, two salt-water pools, and a more-than-insta-worthy “HTX” neon sign (see the blog banner photo)! Units feature vaulted ceilings, open-concept floor plans with lots of natural light, gas range stoves and massive walk-in closets. Some units will even feature spectacular views of the city and wine fridges (cheers to that). The level of luxury of these units really does feel unmatched when you’re in them!
As for the property itself, did you see it will host not one, but two salt-water pools? One will be private and prospectively feature a full-service poolside bar, and the other is an Olympic-size lap pool. Other amenities include a state of the art fitness center, Community BCycle® bicycles on-site, dog park and pet spa with wash stations, bike storage and electric car charging stations. Plus, the property boasts a beautiful and very private media room, perfect for friendly gatherings to watch those trash T.V. finales we all love.
Pricing at The Parker starts at $1,660 for one-bedroom units and $2,440 for two-bedroom units. They’re also offering a move-in special of one month free, so if you need any help working that effective rent math out, whether it be for The Parker or otherwise, screenshot this and text us!
The Standard in the Heights (Heights)
Heights hottie alert – the Houston apartment market extends a warm welcome to The Standard in the Heights. The property is currently pre-leasing for early-April move-ins and will feature an amazing dog park and grooming station, an upscale fitness center complete with Peloton bikes, yoga space, and high-intensity training area. We’ve never felt closer to “summer bod 2020.” The Heights is always a highly-desired neighborhood to live in, so location is prime in that regard, plus it offers breezy access to the Heights hike and bike trail and all the main highways to get you where you need to go.
Units at The Standard showcase 12 to 14-foot ceilings with windows offering tons of fabulous views of the city, upgraded kitchen appliances with chic granite countertops and spacious, flowy floor plans. The property is currently offering a move-in special of two months free and pricing starts at $1,455 for studio units, $1,660 for one-bedroom units and $2,290 for two-bedroom units.

Heights Waterworks (Heights)
Heights Waterworks is perfectly nestled alongside the Heights Hike and Bike Trail, catty-corner to Commonbond Bakery, Verdine, Hopdoddy, and all the local mom-and-pop shops right off 19th. If you lead a very active and social lifestyle and opt to leave your car parked in order to venture out any chance you get, this place is for you! Heights Waterworks is situated in the midst of so many neighborhood landmark buildings and was built where the old waterworks building was, so the aesthetic definitely boasts roaring twenties vibes. An updated classic, Heights Waterwork units feature gas stoves and bright kitchen finishes with stylish quartz countertops, massive sliding doors that open up to Juliette balconies, vaulted ceilings and tons of windows for natural light.
The property itself will make you feel like you walked into another time. Eccentric wall, floor and ceiling designs featuring dainty gold finishes, brass piping and tasteful artwork, a reading parlor featuring a library of books for residents – this place leaves you wondering when Gatsby himself will enter the scene! They’re currently offering a move-in special of 4 weeks free and pricing starts at $1,685 for studio units, $1,795 for one-bedroom units and $2,725 for two-bedroom units.
They’re currently not doing face-to-face touring as a measure to keep everyone safe during this wonky time, but we’ve got exclusive live tours so Smart City clients can tour virtually! If this piques your interest, call or text us so we can get you matched with an agent!
Lenox Grand Crossing (Katy)
This charming new Katy property is perfect for anyone looking to move out of the hustle and bustle, and into a cozy neighborhood nook with a location so prime it beckons you to stay in the ‘burbs. Lenox Grand Crossing features a 24-hour fitness center, a spiffy work lounge with private workspaces, dog park and grooming station and two resort-style pools with a sundeck for prime summertime tanning. The property is situated right next to I-10, so venturing inside the loop is easy, especially with access to the HOV lane to help anyone commuting into Downtown bypass some of that rush hour traffic Houstonians know and love.
The property will feature one, two and three-bedroom units with pricing starting from $1,185 to $2,325 depending on the floorplan you’re interested in. They’re also offering 8 weeks free, which can bring pricing for some one-bedroom units to less than $1k per month!
