Disrupting an undisturbed market, Gables Residential introduces Crimson, an exquisite high-rise rental building for those with a desire for a discerning lifestyle who choose to be close to work and play without the hassles of home ownership.
A stunning 14-story brick and glass tower at 2220 West Creek Lane in the River Oaks neighborhood, Crimson’s prime location inside the 610 Loop gives residents quick and easy access to anywhere they want to go in Houston. This lifestyle showcases the value of being able to walk to the River Oaks shopping district and be minutes away from the Galleria, both high-end retail venues offering residents a wide variety of shopping and dining choices.
Crimson is part of Gables Signature Collection featuring incomparable five-star resort-level services and three different types of rental homes—residences, townhomes, and penthouses—that meet the exceptional standards this demographic demands. “Crimson is a true alternative for those unwilling to sacrifice the quality of living they are accustomed to, yet want freedom from homeownership responsibilities and investing in a fluctuating real estate market.” says Micah Conn, regional vice president, Gables Residential.” At Crimson, our residents are offered a level of exquisite living and service comparable to first-class hotels and resorts.”
For 35 years, Gables Residential has continued to elevate the resident experience by incorporating design elements and amenities specific to enhancing the daily rental living experience. Named 2019 Property Management Company of the Year by MultiHousing News, Gables continues to improve upon their already high caliber communities by embracing greater services, amenities, technological advances and sustainability enhancements.
A 24-hour concierge is available to accommodate the requests of Crimson’s discerning resident. Services include door-to-door delivery and pick up of packages, groceries, and dry cleaning and escorting dog walkers and house cleaning in and out of residents’ homes while they are away. Valet car services, along with convenient drop-off and pick-up areas, makes owning a car a choice. The beautiful floral arrangements throughout the building are refreshed on a weekly basis, and this same service is offered to residents for inside their homes.
Unique to Crimson is its very own full-time concierge director who schedules events on a regular basis to engage residents and foster a sense of community. From bringing in the newest models of Mercedes Benz vehicles for test drives to hosting food and cocktail tastings from local eateries and pubs, there is always a special event to look forward to at Crimson. Even pets have something to look forward to enjoying as the community has two fenced-in dog runs to keep large and small dogs separate while they play along with a pet spa station with heated water for cleaning up afterward.
Crimson has almost one acre of amenity space throughout the community, including an expansive park, giving residents little reason to leave home. An amenity deck on the 14th floor features a skyline infinity edge pool, a spectacular indoor-outdoor bar with retractable full-length windows that opens to an outdoor pool, a fitness facility, and an observatory for taking in breathtaking views of Houston or relaxing by one of two double-sided fireplaces. Those who work from home and prefer a different setting will want to take advantage of the library, conference room or workstations. The area also features a dining room for entertaining guests.
Residents do not have to go far to experience culture; it can be found inside the community. Crimson has its own art gallery filled with thought provoking sculptures and paintings. For casual entertaining, residents can keep their own kitchens clean and move their party to the fifth-floor courtyard with its glamorous sparkling fountain, outdoor grilling stations and comfortable seating areas.
Smart home features
In total, Crimson has 274 resident rental residences, six elevated 3-story townhomes and 15 penthouses, all equipped with community based WIFI and smart home technology that enables residents to remotely adjust the thermostat or turn on the lights while they are away. Also included is a keyless entry system to help prevent anyone from ever getting locked out. In addition, upgrades are available for residents who want to take full advantage of the latest advances in smart home technology.
Residences start at $2,700 per month, range in size from 1,008 square-feet to 2,596 square-feet and come with the option of one to three bedrooms and one to three bathrooms. Many residences also offer powder rooms. All of the residences feature designer appliance packages, custom elements such as built in bookcases or shelves, oversized closets throughout that are expertly designed with livable organizers, three-dimensional sound-proof laminate flooring that looks like wood and light and airy color schemes that reflect a peaceful vibe.
“We’re not a ‘for sale’ community, but we are a viable option for a ‘for sale’ consumer,” Conn says. “We are focused on the interiors of every residence and offer elements heavily valued in a house, such as designer appliance packages and custom touches, to attract the discerning, long-term resident.”
Take a look inside
The residences and penthouses are single story while the townhomes offer three story floorplans.
The main level of each townhome is an open concept space showcasing a kitchen that naturally flows into the dining and living rooms. A gourmet and amateur cook’s dream, the kitchen is outfitted with Wolf cookware, a high-speed convection oven, built-in Fisher Paykel dual-drawer dishwasher and a 42-inch or 48-inch dual-column built-in refrigerator enclosed in custom paneling. Upstairs from the main level is a flex space that can be used as a media or family room. Outside this useful space, the floorplan features an outdoor patio kitchen with a covered gas grill, sink, fireplace, and TV; the perfect setting to take in the fantastic views of Uptown. Downstairs from the main level are the bedrooms and master bath featuring mosaic marble inlay on the floor, walk-in showers with benches, free-standing tubs, wall mounted fixtures, a lighted vanity with double sinks and makeup mirrors, and a generously sized closet.
