In the bustling area that is Midtown Houston, it seems like there’s always something happening. One of those current somethings is Pearl Midtown, an upscale 154-unit apartment development going up on the 1.14-acre block bounded by Elgin, Smith, Louisiana and Rosalie.
This is the 12th inner-Loop property from the Morgan Group, a national, Houston-based real estate development, construction and management company, since 1990, and the second of recent “Pearl” projects: Pearl Greenway, slated for completion this month, offers a variety of floor plansand interior finishes that cater to sophisticated, pet-owning urban dwellers.
The one- and two-bedroom units of the five-story Pearl Midtown, on the other hand, are meant to appeal to “Echo Boomers and professionals.” Designed byWallace Garcia Wilson, other offerings include “a Zen like-style swimming pool with grilling stations, state-of-the-art fitness center and Internet lounge.”
Though the development won’t offer any ground-floor retail of its own, it is within walking distance to the Mix at Midtown, METRORail’s Main Street Line and more Vietnamese restaurants than you can shake a stick at.
The Morgan Group broke ground on the property in late 2012 and expects to welcome the first residents in January of 2014.
