HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – McNair Interests, founded by the late Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, has broken ground on a multifamily project in the Timbergrove area near The Heights.
McNair Interests, owns about 40 acres in Timbergrove – a significant amount of land where McNair plans to incorporate 100-year old factories into noteworthy new developments.
The 371-unit apartment project will be located on five acres at 3001 W. 11th, near Ella Boulevard.
The first of the unnamed five-story project’s apartment homes is estimated for delivery in the second quarter of 2025 with completion following early the next year. Houston-based architect Munoz & Albin designed the community, Preston Partnership from Atlanta is the architect of record, Ink+Oro from Dallas designed the interiors and Cadence McShane is the general contractor.
The building will serve as both a gateway to and catalyst for future development opportunities on the 40 acres of adjacent land owned by McNair Interests.
McNair will repurpose “majestic steel-framed factories” dating back to the 1920s.
The angled architecture and alternating materials of the new apartments will give a nod to the mix of modern and industrial counterpoints intended for the larger development. “The elements are meant not only to create an eye-catching façade for the multifamily project that changes with perspective, but also to humanize the building’s scale by maximizing greenspace and encouraging resident interaction,” McNair Interests said in a written description of the development.
“Much like our new and well-received waterfront On the Trails community in the Westchase District of Houston, McNair Interests has been intentional in creating an environment at 3001 W. 11th that is both seemingly off the beaten path, yet in the middle of everything. This is not an inward-looking box and courtyard building, but a community of outward-facing gardens in between living areas,” said Drew Steffen, Senior Vice President of the firm’s real estate development and investment team. “Coupled with a focus on quality design and amenities that are truly useful and appreciated by today’s renters, we feel that this project will resonate well with discerning Inner Loop devotees.”
Featuring a mix of one, two and three bedrooms, the residences at 3001 W. 11th will feature private balconies and patios, keyless entry, walk-in closets, quartz countertops and designer plank flooring.
Community amenities will include EV charging, bike and general storage, co-working space, and a dog park.
McNair Interests, which is headquartered in Houston, also developed multifamily near Deerwood Road along West Sam Houston Parkway South in the Westchase District.
McNair Interests is also the lead owner and development partner in the redevelopment of Uptown Dallas’ Maple Terrace. Nearing completion, the 3.4-acre mixed-use development includes the reimagining of a 1920s era apartment building, originally designed by famed English architect Sir Alfred Bossom, as boutique offices and the addition of 12,000 SF of street-facing restaurant spaces, adjacent to a private garden and a 22-story apartment tower.
