 Perched atop a hill

Perched atop a hill near downtown Houston, the Gables Memorial Hills residential tower will rise to eight stories and cover 2.68 acres. With an average unit size of 965 sf, the brick and cast-stone complex will consist of 70% one-bedroom units and 30% two-bedroom units, some of which overlook downtown. Ziegler Cooper Architects gave the building a curved form that breaks up the long mass of the façade, which is clad in contrasting brick colors and complemented by split-face block on the first two floors.
