Morgan to Build Apartments Above New Midtown Whole Foods in Houston
HOUSTON — Morgan plans to start construction during the first quarter of 2016 on its latest Pearl luxury apartment project in Houston’s Midtown district. The eight-story complex will include apartments above a Whole Foods Market. The upcoming development is located in the 3100 block of Smith across the street from Morgan’s Pearl Midtown midrise that opened last summer. Ziegler Cooper is the project’s architect. The new apartment complex will feature 260 studios, one- and two-bedroom units. Amenities will include Bluetooth sound systems, a sky lounge, fitness center and pool. The Whole Foods Market store will be 40,000 square feet, with a second floor mezzanine for seating. Pearl will include components of Morgan’s LiveWell program, which focuses on providing a healthy and comfortable apartment lifestyle for residents of its Pearl branded projects.
