HOUSTON - PM Realty Group is developing 2929 Weslayan at the northeast corner of Weslayan and West Alabama. The 40-story tower will have 254 units averaging 1,500 sf. Many will have three bedrooms. The average unit will rent for close to $4,000 a month.

The project will also have about 12,000 sf of retail space on the ground floor. It will be completed this spring with the first residents moving in this fall.

The developer has already been quietly accepting leases. Thirteen units already are spoken for, including three 4,000-sf penthouses that will lease in the $12,000 to $13,000 range.

Each unit will have one of 14 design and color schemes with walk-in closets, granite counters and wood floors. All will have built-in speakers and a smart entertainment system allowing residents to control temperature, lights and other features from a mobile phone.

The eighth floor will house tenant amenities, each with a unique view. The gym will overlook the Galleria area and Greenway Plaza, while a sky lounge and fire pit will have downtown views.

A saltwater swimming pool, however, will be shielded from the city by extensive landscaping and cabanas.

This is PM’s third high-rise multifamily project. The other two are in Dallas. Baltimore-based RTKL designed the structure.
