Anchored by a Whole Foods store and access to amenities that include an "Uber waiting room" (no word on how this differs from a "lobby), the Morgan Group's latest Pearl-branded apartment going up in Midtown is a millennial's dream. The Houston Business Journal reports construction just began on what may be Houston's first mixed-use grocery-residential development.
The apartment complex offering 264 units will be on top of a 40,000 square-foot Whole Foods store. Not only will the apartments offer elevator access to the Whole Foods and the aforementioned Uber area, the building also comes with a co-working space; a bike storage room; a pool with cabanas, grilling stations, and TVs; an "outdoor yoga lawn"; plus more.
Ziegler Cooper, the Houston architect behind the project, is working on other grocery-anchored projects besides the Midtown project, including one in Houston called Buffalo Heights that will feature the not-as-high-end H-E-B as its ground-floor grocery.
