Alta City West Grand Opening Receives Strong Draw

Alta City West Apartments – NOW OPEN.

Wood Partners recently hosted more than 60 people at a Havana Nights-themed grand opening party at Alta City West, a boutique 133-unit community on Westheimer Road. This new development is already approximately 29 percent leased.

The recently completed Alta City West, a 119,000-square-foot luxury apartment building on three acres located at 9233 Westheimer Road in Houston, was designed by Good, Fulton & Farrell. The community includes five studios, 84 one-bedroom units and 34 two-bedroom units, with 188 parking spaces. Luxury finishes include stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, subway tile backsplashes, vinyl plank flooring, and washers and dryers. Residents have access to a clubroom, fitness center, outdoor kitchen area and pool, and select floorplans will include garages. Wireless connectivity and the latest in audio/visual technology will be available in all common areas.

Location Is Key

“Potential residents are responding well to Alta City West’s high-end units and amenities,” said Todd Gaines, Wood Partner’s South Texas Director. “The strong location — with great access and short commutes to jobs in the Westchase District, Energy Corridor and The Galleria — is also a major draw.”

Alta City West is close to several major local employers, including Phillips 66, Chevron, Halliburton, BP, Shell and Exxon, and near high-end shopping centers such as The Galleria and CityCentre. Residents are close to Terry Hershey Park, which is expanding its bike trails so that commuters will be able to bicycle through the park to oil company offices around Eldridge Parkway. Memorial Park Golf Course, located a few miles to the east, is one of the country’s top municipal courses.

Here’s The Deal

“Alta City West has unique high-end finishes and offers private attached garages to the interior corridors, which puts it above the competition in the area,” said Alta City West Manager Stephanie Yonan. “The Grand Opening party was successful in introducing our new residents to the local vendors and enticing people to check out our new facilities.”

Where to Watch the World Cup 2014 in Houston

While we patiently wait out the NFL’s summer hiatus, we were fortunate to fall into the World Cup this year making for some pretty exciting outings where we rally behind the USA and cheer on countries we didn’t even know we liked. But even if soccer isn’t your thing, it’s a great excuse to get out and hit the bars at weird times of the day. As long as you’re up for that, we’ve got a few Houston-area spots that are begging for you to patronize. world-cup-2014-houston-tx

1. Bar Munich (Midtown)

This Midtown favorite is your premier Euro-style sports pub that features $10 brats and half-liter Hofbraus on Mondays, $3 German pints on Wednesdays until 8pm, and $8 full liters on Fridays until 7pm. Keep up with them on social to find out when they open early for the games, and make sure you save some room for Das Boot. world-cup-2014-houston-tx

2. Richmond Arms Pub (Gulfton)

This is an old-school British pub that’s got every game on the big screen. Even when the doors open at 9am, it’s bound to get packed, so show up early to get a good seat. They are giving away prizes and paraphernalia every game, such as signed jerseys and soccer balls, providing you with some extra incentive to make this your World Cup 2014 spot.

3. The Phoenix on Westheimer (Montrose)

In case you’re used to their old name Firkin & Phoenix, then this British sports pub is no strange place. “The Firkin”, as the loyals refer to it, will be playing ALL of the World Cup games. Another cool addition is that they are also playing World Cup trivia, so if you’ve got a knack for soccer, you could be deemed the most popular person in the bar. That’s after you order the entire place a round of beer while you callously eat their delish fish ‘n chips.
