A major new multifamily development is coming to Westchase District, offering its future residents a living experience they can’t find anywhere else. McNair Interests, a real estate developer and private investment and management company, broke ground this summer for Remy on the Trails. The community will be the first phase of a 24-acre residential development built alongside a private lake. Abounding with amenities, the property will cater to individuals who enjoy active lifestyles.
Prime property with magnificent details
McNair Interests is developing the property on one the largest vacant tracts in Westchase District. Located at 400 W Sam Houston Pkwy S on the southwest corner of Deerwood Drive, Remy on the Trails will offer 400,000 square feet for lease in the first phase. The 330-unit multifamily community will feature one- and two-bedroom apartment options in three- and four-story buildings.
The project team includes The Preston Partnership architecture, Mayfield and Ragni Studio (interior design) and Kimley-Horn (landscape design). Central to the design is a secluded three-acre lake with a private walking trail and dock for paddle boards, kayaking and fishing. Residents and guests of Remy on the Trails will enjoy convenient access to the Terry Hershey Trail. The District recently completed a two-way bike lane immediately adjacent to the site that connects to the Terry Hershey Trail.
“People with healthy lifestyles want to spend more time outside around Houston’s great parks and trails,” said Drew Steffen, McNair’s senior vice president, real estate. “The approach for Remy on the Trails is to maximize options for outdoor livability. We designed this community as an urban oasis with flexible indoor-outdoor amenities, and integrated work and play spaces.”
Features include an expansive club house and resident lounges, which spill out onto the deck of the infinity pool overlooking the lake, an indoor gym with adjoining outdoor fitness area, bike storage centers and outdoor entertainment spaces. Pet-friendly design elements incorporate a dog-washing facility and two dog parks.
Built for active lifestyles
Remy on the Trails’ focus on an active lifestyle means the quantity and variety of outdoor amenities will be one-of-a-kind, with three separate courtyards, a pool deck with outdoor kitchen and cabanas, the lake with docks and recreational path, and multiple access points to the Terry Hershey hike and bike connection. “Bikers specifically will be well cared for in the abundance and convenience of secured bike storage and bike tune-up spaces,” said Steffen.
Next generation amenities
Steffen said residents will also have access to a highly secure and private indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi network, meaning residents can always stay connected at strong speeds suiting their needs, whether its for business or entertainment. Additional features include event areas and a separate building for flex office space that includes private offices, open seating and conference rooms. Residents will enjoy best-in-class finishes, air-conditioned corridors, and keyless smart-locks at all unit entries. All buildings on the campus will be served by elevators and have private garages and surface parking. The larger master plan includes additional mixed-use elements, including on-site food and beverage retail.
For McNair Interests, the site’s location was a huge draw. “We wanted to locate Remy on the Trails between the job concentration of the many employers in the Westchase District and other surrounding areas such as the Energy Corridor, City Center and Memorial City,” said Steffen. “Westchase District has also shown a commitment to connecting the neighborhoods to the parks and trail systems, making this location an ideal candidate for the lifestyle-driven residences of Remy on the Trails, which includes a direct connection to Terry Hershey Park right at our front door.”
