RelatedConstruction has begun on a 17-story Uptown residential building — the biggest project to get under way in the neighborhood since the recession.
The Taylor apartment tower, at Carlisle and Bowen streets, will contain 308 apartments and is set to open in 2014. The project will replace two low-rise office buildings, which were recently demolished. The Taylor will be less than a block from the popular Katy Trail. It is a project of Dallas-based apartment developer StreetLights Residential.
The rental tower is planned with a resort-style swimming pool, large fitness center and rooftop deck, and the community “will feel similar to a high-end boutique hotel,” said Paige Close, StreetLights’ senior vice president. Rents will start at $1,300 a month for the smallest unit. The high-rise was designed by WDG Architects and Marly + Co.
