Renting in Houston: Aria at Willowick Park

A twelve-acre tract originally inhabited by 1970’s obsolete townhomes was split into four smaller sites with different product types, allowing for a diverse community that fits the needs of many buyer types. One of these sites has been masterfully reimagined and executed as Aria at Willowick Park: a 325-unit rental community with a focus on green space, panoramic views, and meeting the needs of an active Houston lifestyle.

Aria at Willowick’s Park project team includes:

Architect/Designer and Land Planner | Steinberg Dickey Collaborative, LLP
Builder | Westchase Construction
Developer | Fein
Interior Designer and Interior Merchandiser | Moore Design Group
Lighting Design | KGM Architectural Lighting
Landscape Architect/Designer | Kudela & Weinheimer
Photographer | Bruce Glass Photography



Instead of overbuilding the site with very little green space, and with the encouragement of the architect, a 1.5 acre central park—Willowick Park—was developed to be the heart and anchor of the community. The oval shape of the park helps to define the form of the surrounding buildings. Willowick Park is an open park for all to enjoy, not just the residents of this development.

Two of the streets that surround the property were landscaped many years ago with beautiful oak trees. Sixty years of growth have created one of the most amazing allies of trees to be found in Houston. Building setbacks were increased to preserve this alley, which created larger green spaces around the building. To further activate these areas, park benches were installed for the whole neighborhood to utilize.

Aria offers the residents the following amenities and services to meet their needs:
