Downtown Houston Apartment Ranked Among 2019 Elite 1% Properties by J Turner Research

For the second year in a row, our Houston apartments downtown have been recognized among the Elite 1% properties in the nation with the best online reputation for 2019. This is an industry-specific award based on the online reviews our residents and guests left about our community and service over the course of 2019, and such an honor.

The Elite 1% ORA™ Power Ranking is an annual ranking developed by J Turner Research, an independent company that researches more than 116,000 apartments across 21+ review sites and Internet Listing Services (ILSs), J Turner assigns an independent Online Reputation Assessment Score (ORA™ Score) to each property, and this score determines a property’s rank. J Turner Research is an independent market research and online reputation management company exclusively serving the multifamily industry.

Our downtown Houston apartments offer an ideal location next door to the Houston Astros, a brand-new dog park, five-star customer service, two sparkling resident pools, two on-site restaurants and a ton of other grand amenities, which is just part of the reason residents rave about us. Choose from 10 spacious floor plans, which come standard with deluxe amenities for the most ideal living situation in all of downtown Houston.
