HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – MetroNational has topped out construction on a 25-story residential tower in its Memorial City development in West Houston.
Called The McKinley Memorial City, the 278-unit high-rise apartment is slated to be completed in Q4 2021.
The 332,231 SF building, 9757 Katy Freeway, is on the southwest corner of Bunker Hill Road and the Katy Freeway. Ziegler Cooper Architects designed the project and Anslow Bryant is the general contractor.
In February, MetroNational announced that it had broken ground on an office building adjacent to the McKinley apartment project. The office building will be a 190,000 SF, 9-story tower at 9753 Katy Freeway.
As is customary with new construction, a ten-foot pine tree was hoisted up to the top of the apartment structure, signifying the last beam of construction and a significant milestone for the project. The initial residents are expected to move-in next year.
The residential building will have 4,500 SF of retail or restaurant space at street level.
The property is one of the last remaining undeveloped corner tracts in the Katy Freeway corridor between 610 and Beltway 8, said MetroNational, a Houston firm that built the 265-acre Memorial City mixed-use development over the years.
Owned and managed by MetroNational, Memorial City contains 9 million SF of developed real estate incorporating a blend of Class A office space; retail, including the super-regional Memorial City Mall; high-rise and midrise apartments including The McAdams Memorial City; restaurants; Westin Memorial City hotel and Hotel ZaZa Memorial City; the Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center; and The Square and The Lawn at Memorial City..
Houston-based MetroNational, founded in 1954, owns and manages more than 9.6 million SF.
