SkyHouse to build 336 residential units

We’re excited about SkyHouse Houston, downtown’s first incentivized residential project under the TIRZ #3 Downtown Living Program. The 24-story high rise apartment will bring 336 new units to the downtown core, located at 1625 Main Street.

The $67 million project will be developed by Novare Group, an Atlanta-based developer with more than a dozen high-end luxury apartment projects under its belt, scattered from Orlando to Nashville, with plans to build a SkyHouse in Austin.

The project was designed to appeal to young singles who can take advantage of downtown amenities such as the Theater District, music venues, Discovery Green, Market Square Park, the Houston Pavilions and critically-acclaimed dining destinations. And let’s not forget that the Texans, Astros, Rockets and Dynamo are just a short walk or train ride away from the Main Street development.

But it’s not just singles that will enjoy the new digs. Now more than ever, empty nesters are making their way back to the city for a more walkable lifestyle, according to Stephen Klineberg’s Houston Area Survey that was published earlier this year.

The SkyHouse project is a welcomed answer to the demand for downtown residential. In July, The Finger Companies announced its plans to develop a 380-unit complex near Minute Maid Park.
