Heights Clock Tower Awarded Top Honors in this Year's ULI Houston Development of Distinction Awards

Published 1/27/2016 by Kaycee Sandoval

A theme of restoration and repurposing marked the finalists in this year’s ULI Houston Development of Distinction Awards. The organization annually convenes real estate leaders to identify projects that demonstrate quality design, public/private partnership, economic viability and overall industry leadership.

Three international jurors visited Houston—a first for each of them—to tour every project. They awarded Heights Clock Tower top honors in the for-profit category. The building was built in 1894 as a mattress factory. It served various purposes over the years before sitting vacant and neglected. The current owners began restoration in 2003; the building now houses offices, studios, a bakery and other retail space. Other finalists in the category included Johnson Development’s Cross Creek Ranch, the restored JW Marriott Houston Downtown hotel from Pearl Hospitality, and South Heights Mixed-Use by RE:VIVE.
