Mill Creek Wins Lease-up Award For Modera Spring Town Center
North Houston Apartments Lauded for Appearance, Performance and Service Excellence
SPRING, Texas – June 16, 2015 – Mill Creek Residential, a leading multifamily developer, investor and operator specializing in premier apartment communities across the U.S., has won the Houston Apartment Association’s 2015 Honors Award in the New Development – Garden Style category for Modera Spring Town Center, a new apartment community in Greater Houston.
The Houston Apartment Association judged the communities on the basis of resident service, physical appearance, community service, operational performance and unique features and amenities.
“In addition to having a host of best-in-class apartment features and amenities, we have further differentiated our community with our outstanding on-site staff,” said Jennifer Clark, regional director for Mill Creek Residential. “Our people provide a level of customer service that apartment residents can’t find anywhere else. They make Modera Spring Town Center stand out in what has become a very competitive market.”
Modera Spring Town Center, developed as part of a joint venture with CNL Growth Properties, began leasing the community’s 396 apartment homes in late 2014. The community is located just blocks from the recently opened Exxon Mobil corporate campus, the Spring Town Center shopping district, and the Springwoods Village development. The walkable location provides easy access to thousands of jobs, and numerous shopping, dining and entertainment destinations.
“We have developed a beautiful community with a host of lifestyle- enhancing amenities and stellar apartment features in a vibrant and growing neighborhood,” Clark said. “But none of that would count for anything if we had a negative Nelly at the front desk. You have to have people who are friendly, people with whom you can build a trustworthy relationship, because they’re interacting with your residents and prospective residents every single day.”
Nearby development remains active with Southwestern Energy and Baker Hughes in the process of developing large office locations in the neighborhood, which will add thousands of additional professional job opportunities within blocks of Modera Spring Town Center. For residents who need easy access to the new Exxon campus, The Woodlands, and I-45, the community offers easy access to the Grand Parkway, which will have on- and off- ramps at the nearby intersection of Kuykendahl and Spring Stuebner. The Grand Parkway is schedule to open in late 2015.
“The recent growth of this North Houston neighborhood, especially the addition of the Exxon Mobil campus, created tens of thousands of jobs, resulting in significant demand for high-end apartment housing,” said Jeb Cox, Senior Managing Director of Houston and Austin development for Mill Creek Residential. “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to help meet that demand and add value to our neighbors through the development of a luxury apartment community with the features and amenities today’s residents want from their living experience.”
Inside Modera Spring Town Center, residents have access to numerous high-end amenities, including a hotel-inspired pool surrounded by a lush courtyard with private cabanas and an outdoor kitchen, a fully-equipped clubhouse with gaming center and catering area, and a 24-hour athletic center with Pilates and circuit training equipment. The community also offers private parking with controlled-entry access and a business center with Wi-Fi.
The 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartment homes showcase luxury finishes and features, including open floor plans with 9-foot ceilings, gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and luxury bathrooms with oversized tubs and glassed-in showers. Residents also enjoy premium floors in living rooms, kitchens and baths, and upgraded light fixtures throughout the community.
With the addition of Modera Spring Town Center, Mill Creek now owns and operates five apartment communities, representing approximately 1,500 apartment homes, in the Houston market.
