240 Apartments, 49 Garden Homes Going Up on West Lake Houston Parkway

After more than eight months of clearing, grading and drainage prep, The Residences at Kingwood, a 19.7 acre apartment complex on West Lake Houston Parkway between Upper Lake Drive and Kings Park Way, is finally under construction. The developer’s website says the complex will feature 240 Garden Apartments and 49 Townhomes.

The photos below show that carpenters have started framing buildings on the south end of the property and are working their way north.

First Photos of New Year

All photos below were taken on 1/3/2023, one day after a quarter-inch rain.

Detention basin seems to be functioning. Harris County specifies a minimum detention rate of .65 acre feet per acre for sites this large. 

Although neighbors have complained of mud on West Lake Houston Parkway and surrounding streets, I have received no complaints of flooding yet.

Location

The map below shows the location of two parcels on West Lake Houston Parkway that comprise the new development. They are approximately halfway between the West Fork at the top of the frame and FM1960 at the bottom.

The cul-de-sac at the south end of the property (right)will be called Kings River Commercial Drive.
