Fairfield looking to build 16th Houston Apt at old Women's Center Bldg

Fairfield Looking to Build 16th Houston Rental Community

A California apartment developer is planning to take over the empty Houston Area Women’s Center building and construct an $85 million high-rise multifamily community at the location at 1010 Waugh Drive. Fairfield Residential recently purchased the property and a public filing indicates the company hopes to demolish the current structure and have the 630,000 square foot building done by 2025.

Fairfield continues to show its fondness for the Houston market. The 1010 Waugh project will be Fairfield’s 16th location in the greater Houston area. Fairfield also plans to open another apartment complex in the Sawyer Yards area in 2025 and its East Bend Apartments community next to the M-K-T development in the Heights this year.

Previously, the property at 1010 Waugh housed the HAWC’s administrative offices, while the organization operated a shelter, the location of which was undisclosed for security purposes.
