One Park Place
Location: Houston, Texas
With a commanding view of Houston's Discovery Green, this 37-floor, 347-unit luxury apartment residential tower derives its architectural image from traditional urban motifs associated with fin-de-siècle landmark residences that defined great urban parks. Reinterpreting the European chateau, One Park Place's distinctive roof profile creates a skyline signature. A slender shaft featuring generously proportioned windows and balconies in a field of rose-colored brick masonry with stone accents, recalling the quality and character of Houston's most prestigious residential neighborhoods, emerges from an enhanced, eight-level base designed to enrich the pedestrian experience. The building's base includes six levels of parking for 790 vehicles; a generous lobby, which faces Discovery Green; 27,000 SF of indoor/outdoor retail and restaurant space; and an eighth level of resident amenities that include party rooms, a business center, a fully equipped exercise facility and 35,000 SF of outdoor space for the pool terrace, outdoor cooking and social activity. The open unit designs feature 10 foot ceilings, quality finishes and fixtures.
