Hey, it worked for the River Oaks Cleaners and CityCentre! The latest, perhaps only half-unwitting entry into the ongoing Houston name-sprawl competition is “Heights at Park Row,” an apartment complex announced yesterday by an Atlanta developer but apparently already under construction in advance of an announced October opening date. The 342-unit rental compound, a mere 14 freeway miles west of the similarly named Houston neighborhood not known (yet) for its apartments, will hang back a tad from the southern freeway exposure of Wolff Companies’ this-and-that-use Central Park development, wedged ’twixt I-10 and
a planned the recent extension of the Terry Hershey Park Bike Trail.
Central Park will, in fact, be entirely central to its own location, along Houston’s central concrete ribbon but only a little east of Hwy. 6:
The stuccoed, 5-story apartments will fit on a 9-acre site just east of a 35-acre portion of the development the University of Texas’s M.D. Anderson Cancer Center purchased for a new medical campus a little more than a year ago, at the end of the not-yet-tower-studded road labeled Central Park West. All apartments developed by the Worthing Companies, apparently, carry the Heights name — including another one listed on the company’s website that’s slated for Westchase.
