10 Largest Multifamily Deliveries this Summer

14 multifamily communities totaling 4,200 units are coming online from June to August as Houston continues to work through its incredible pipeline. Some 21,000 units remain under construction, a decrease from 23,722 at this time last year. (Almost all of those will open by the end of the year.) Transwestern director of research Rachel Alexander and Rachel Andrae compiled the 10 biggest deliveries while the kids are out of school.

Concessions are starting to pick up across Houston, Rachels tell us, especially in West Houston (the location of four entries on our list). They expect absorption to remain strong, however. Phase 1 of the Commons at Hollyhock (264 units) is now open, and the remaining units will open by the end of the year. A 360-unit second phase may break ground in Q2 '16. The community includes ground-floor retail, which Read King is handling.

That’s right, Mill Creek makes it on here back to back with two Modera communities. Modera Flats sits right across the street from MD Anderson in the Med Center and prides itself on its ability for residents to go car-free. Besides being walking or biking distance from everything in the Med Center, Rice U and Rice Village, it’s right by the light rail.
