Hines and Watermark Complete Seniors High-rise

The seven-story building, which has 222 residences, is about four miles from Houston. Watermark’s David Freshwater says despite all that’s gone on the last few years, the project construction of the Watermark at Houston Heights didn’t lag, “Development started before Covid hit and was completely on schedule. With highly regulated seniors housing and its required multiple inspections, keeping on schedule was no easy feat.
The designers put as much thought into the entry as the structure. A long sloping driveway leads. up to the second floor entry, giving the appearance of a luxury hotel. Meg Mellett from Hines said it was important that a number of townhome developments are in the neighborhood, “The developers were mindful of the ability of incoming residents to have their families nearby.”

Watermark has four restaurants, a golf simulator and a virtual reality lounge. Monthly rents range from about $3,000 to $8,000.
