High and cultured? New Montrose area apartment tower promises a luxury hotel environment
Dallas-based StreetLights Residential recently broke ground at the site on Chelsea Boulevard between Montrose Boulevard and Travis Street. Others involved in The Carter include Gromatzky Dupree & Associates Architects and Lynda Tycher & Associates landscape architects, also out of Dallas.
Floor plans for The Carter include one-, two- and three-bedroom units in addition to townhouse and penthouse options. Features such as 10-foot ceilings, keyless entry systems, “sound system ready” units with built-in speakers, stone countertops, stainless steel appliances and gourmet prep islands are touted by StreetLights.
“We pride ourselves on creating a luxury, hotel-like environment with each of our projects."
Residents will have access to a resort-style pool with multiple lounge areas and fire pits, a 19th-floor lounge with kitchen, dining and entertainment areas, a private game room, fitness center, resident lobby bar and lounge, outdoor covered dog park, Wi-Fi throughout common areas, private garages and garage parking with electric car charging stations.
“The Carter high-rise is a wonderful addition to the Montrose area’s rapidly growing population with its close proximity to several of Houston’s main attractions,” Doug Chesnut, SLR CEO, said in a statement. “We pride ourselves on creating a luxury, hotel-like environment with each of our projects, and we believe the high-end amenities and multiple living options in this development achieve that vision.
"The Museum District is rich in culture and the arts, and we are certain the future residents are going to enjoy the neighborhood.”
The Carter is expected to be complete in 2017.
