Sapphire Resort Apartments
Houston, Texas

This luxury development had humble beginnings.  A severely distressed complex,  city officials were hoping it would be torn down, and rebuilt from scratch. Yet, this isn’t what the property owner wanted. As skilled developers, we took another path. We first analyzed local needs. We soon discovered a demand for upscale, trend-setting rental housing, featuring full amenities. Our program development was then considerable: we analyzed existing infrastructure. We weighed the cost benefit of each design decision. We considered appropriate materials. Methods of construction were rigorously tested, so we could work within the property’s logistical constraints, and the owner’s budget. Finally, we worked to protect affordable property-management fees once construction was complete. Surrounded by older, garden-style apartments, and affluent single-family homes, The Sapphire stands as a trophy property, unique to the area. The owner also realized considerable ROI.
