Neighborhood Spotlight: Launch HTX

Launch HTX is located adjacent to the George R Brown Convention Center at 701 Avenida de las Americas. This area of Downtown saw a resurgence during the Super Bowl in 2017, when tons of new restaurants and shops opened up.

Launch describes themselves as “a retail platform for Houston-based designers as well as a place for community development and business education.”  The name, LAUNCH is “not only a nod to Houston’s reputation as “Space City”, it references the “launch” of emerging designers from the city’s growing creative community.”

This pop-up shop features a new host of designers (art, clothing, home goods, and accessories) every two months, giving new vendors a chance to reach a broader audience.  Our #FirstFriday crew met with the team at Launch and shot our neighborhood spotlight video there a few weeks back (and also enjoyed buying all of the things)!

Property Tour: The Star Houston

If you’re familiar with Houston history, you may recognize the Star as the old Texaco office building downtown.  This 1915 building has been completely renovated into 286 luxury apartments.  Even though the building is still currently under construction, we felt we HAD to share this property – as it’s one of our favorite downtown spots!

A few things we absolutely LOVE about this property:

  • Location – located in the heart of Downtown, just off the METRORail.  If you work Downtown or in the Medical Center, your morning commute just got that much easier.
  • Club Corp Membership – while the property is still under construction, they are offering all residents a basic 12-month membership.
  • Luxury Appliances – every kitchen comes with a top-of-the-line appliance package, a convection microwave oven, and a 40+ bottle wine fridge.  Hello, dinner parties!
  • Views – Living in the heart of Downtown has its perks.  There are some great city views throughout the property.  People watching, anyone?
  • Half Bathrooms – Does it ever annoy you that people have to walk through your bedroom in order to use the bathroom?  Do you just want some privacy?  Many floor plans at the Star offer half bathrooms!
