HOUSTON - A number of apartment communities have opened or are currently under construction in the Uptown area. The area has seen more than 27 residential development projects since 2000, said John Breeding, Uptown Association President and CEO.

Rent for Uptown apartments that are ten years old or older start at $900 to $1,100 a month, according to Amy Bernstein, Bernstein Realty President. For newer apartments, rent starts at $1,200 to $1,500 for one-bedroom units. "People can spend over $2,000 a month for one bedroom," said Bernstein.

  • The 322-unit WaterWall Place is being constructed on a three-acre site at the northeast corner of Hidalgo and McCue overlooking the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park.

    Units will range from 700 sf to 1,740 sf. The community will feature a seventh-level sky lounge, along with a 518-car garage. Occupants are expected to move in by late 2013, or early 2014.
  • The 355-unit Hanover Post Oak will be part of the mixed-use BLVD Place under construction at the southwest corner of San Felipe and Post Oak Blvd.

    Units will range from 600 sf to 3,000 sf, and move-ins will begin in December 2014. BLVD Place is also expected to house a Whole Foods store, restaurants, retail and office space.
