The streetscape of Houston's Midtown has changed substantially over the past several decades, from an affluent residential area to a blighted ghost town to a thriving, walkable live-and-play district.
Much of the recent progress of the area can be attributed to Post Midtown Square: The mixed-use development's first phase, which was completed in 1999, helped to define the area with bars, restaurants and retail, and the first units of its third and final phase were delivered in November of this year.
"It's like we're finally going public with this last phase," explains Larry Plotsky, owner of The Plotsky Group, of the project's situation in the highly-visible triangle created by West Gray Street and Webster Street.
It brings Post Midtown to a grand total of 643 units and more than 48,000 square feet of ground floor retail.
Plotsky describes the two buildings and 124 units that make up phase three as "much higher-end than the rest of the area, and even than the rest of the development."
Not only does it occupy a prime location — perfect for young professionals who work downtown and tend to spend more time out and about than within their homes — but these units also boast highly-decorated and well-appointed interiors, with maple cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, wine refrigerators, farmhouse sinks and the like.
True to Post Properties' mixed-use M.O., the ground-level of the building has 11,000 square feet to be dedicated to retail along West Gray, with a high-end, dinner-focused restaurant (think something along the lines of Black Finn American Grille or Brasserie 19, says Plotsky) on the western point and a smaller lunch spot on the other end cap.
