High Rise Neighborhood Guide

High Rise Apartments in Houston are generally located the heart of the city. Neighborhoods including the Galleria, Montrose, Downtown and Midtown areas are where people find the most success.  The large majority of high-rises offer superb finishes and offer a great overall living experience. 

But Downtown Houston doesn’t boast that many high rise buildings compared to other major cities in the U.S.  Searching for a high-rise is no different than you would search for any other rental. Whether you search online or contact a realtor, its your choice. The approval process will also be similar. 

High Rise Features

High-rise buildings are generally surrounding by skyscrapers offering incredible views, lots of space, and include luxury living.  Residents can select from penthouse views,  including gourmet kitchens and tall ceilings. Expect amenities like concierge and valet dry cleaning services and a full-service business center including Wi-Fi and faxing capabilities.

There should also be other perks like valet parking for residents, doormen, etc.

Apartment Rental Pricing

What should you expect to budget for one bedroom high rise apartments in Houston, TX? Well again, this will vary from one community to the next. The older communities will fetch somewhere around $1600 per month. But if you want something super nice, it is going to be much more. You might want to contact a realtor if you prefer the private rentals.   Their services are usually free and they may even give you a rebate back too. They can give you a better idea of what the cost may be. But brace yourself as it might approach over $3000. The word cheap and high rise usually don’t go together.

How to Choose Your Next Accommodation

If you choose older high rises, you should realize that older rentals may require more maintenance.  Also if you lease a unit on a higher floor, your utility bills may be more expensive compared to a unit on the lower floors. Most communities charge more rent for the penthouse and higher floors that offer awesome views.  Also, many of the high rises for rent will also accept pets. Be sure and ask about breed restrictions, pet rent, and deposits.

Notable High Rise Communities

Dominion at Post Oak is located in the Galleria area; was constructed in 2005 and is probably the newest high rise in the area.  It boasts spectacular views of the entire city. Future tenants can expect astounding amenities like floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, stainless steel appliances, and island kitchens.

The Cabochon at River Oaks might be the oldest high rise in Houston and is located in the prestigious River Oaks area. They were constructed in the late 60’s and 70’s. They have undergone renovation to appeal to the future tenant today! The Parklane High Rise might be the oldest in the Museum District. Enjoy 9 ft. ceilings and 7 ft. windows with astonishing views.  High rise apartments in Downtown will come at a premium as soaring high rises normally do.

How to Refine Your Apt Search

One of the first steps in any rental process should be to narrow down the neighborhoods that are possible options for you. Houston has its fair share of traffic and congestion. If you find yourself stuck with long commute times; you won’t be a happy camper. A good rule of thumb is to narrow down your area first, and then picking out possible high rise apartments for rent.

Always be prepared when you tour high rises or any property for rent. You should know that the busiest time for the rental market is in the summer season. Depending on the market, you might want to have all of the proper documentation on hand in case you want to apply. The larger communities will require that you fill out an application, place deposits, and will want to check your current employment status.

If you can, lease your next accommodation in the Fall months. This is when foot traffic starts to die down. In response apartment managers will offer incentives and move-in specials.

What You Need for Fast Approval

If you’re renting a private condo unit, the landlord might want specific references that will imply that you’re a reputable renter. Be prepared to put down your deposit to secure the unit in question.  Be sure and ask how many vacancies are available. You don’t want to lose out because this was the last one available.

It’s always a good idea to have a backup just in case another renter swoops in and takes the rental away that you wanted.
