Sola Uptown River Oaks, a 317-apartment luxury mid-rise consisting of five stories of residential units, is Mill Creek’s first development in Houston. The community is located inside Loop 610 between the exclusive residential neighborhood of River Oaks and the upscale Uptown/Galleria area. River Oaks is considered to be the “Beverly Hills” of Houston, and the Uptown/Galleria area is a dynamic commercial district that is home to numerous chic shopping venues, exclusive restaurants, and high-end residences. In addition to being within walking distance of Uptown/Galleria, the site also enjoys easy and quick access to Downtown, the Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, and other key areas of the city. Overall density will be 91 units per acre with 49 efficiency units (15%), 205 one-bedroom units (65%), and 63 two-bedroom units (20%) surrounding a concrete parking structure. Average apartment size will be 832 square feet.
Less than a half-mile west of the site is the Uptown/Galleria area—a major economic and entertainment hub for Houston. It contains over 23 million square feet of office space housing approximately 2,000 companies and 80,000 jobs. Considered on its own merit, Uptown/Galleria is the 15th largest business district in the United States, making it bigger than the downtown areas of Atlanta and Detroit. Key employers include Air Liquide, Aon International Energy, BHP Billiton Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, Clear Channel Communications, GE Energy, Landry’s Restaurants, Inc. NetIQ Corporation, Panhandle Energy and Spectra Energy Corporation.

In addition to shopping, Uptown/Galleria also features some of Houston’s greatest restaurants like RDG Bar Annie, Arcodoro and Post Oak Grill, to name a few.
And, just a half-mile north of the property is Memorial Park. Encompassing over 1,500 acres, Memorial Park is larger than New York’s Central Park. As a popular location for outdoor recreation and festivals, the park attracts thousands of visitors every day.
The amenity area will be 7,813 square feet and house marketing and management offices, a fitness center, resident lounge and internet café.
