There are over 16,000 apartment units in the International District. However, the District’s apartment stock is aging with most properties constructed in the 70’s and 80’s. Few new complexes have been constructed in recent decades in spite of the tremendous growth that has occurred on the west side of Houston and Harris County.

In response to the demand for new Class A market rate apartments in Southwest Houston, Houston Reh LLC is developing an attractive new apartment complex to be called Aria at Wilcrest on a 2.1 acre tract on the southeast corner of Wilcrest and Kipp Way. A total of 81 units are under construction on the site which is on the north edge of the Southwest Business Park. The community will offer two 1 BR/1B models and two 2 BR/2B models. Rental rates start at $895/mo. for a 693 square foot 1 BR/1B unit. In spite of their affordability, the new apartments are expected to be of excellent quality, similar to much higher priced apartments being built by Houston Reh at the Aria at Willowick Park on Las Palmas near the upscale Highland Village shopping center inside Loop 610.
