New Year, New High-Rise Lifestyle!

A change of the year is always a time to wave goodbye to the old and ring in the new. As we move into 2021, many will have New Year’s resolutions to keep and so we’re taking a look at a high-rise lifestyle at The Parklane and how it could help transform ordinary days into a luxury elevated lifestyle. With design packages to inspire and spacious floor plans with one to three-bedroom residences, each with a private balcony, The Parklane has move-in ready homes that will make 2021 a year to remember.

Work / Life Balance

Working long hours and not dedicating enough time to yourself is common, perhaps even more so when many no longer commute to an office and instead switch on a terminal in the home to work, study, teach, or communicate with colleagues and clients alike. The lines between work and recreation become blurred and it can be difficult to switch off. Living near a major city like Houston can be invigorating but at times, claustrophobic. The Parklane residences are located next to Hermann Park, one of Houston’s most popular outdoor spaces, a green oasis with gardens, an outdoor theater, waterways, bridges, trails, a golf course, a boating lake, and miniature train, and many other attractions. Celebrating its 100th birthday in 2014, Hermann Park launched Art in the Park further adding points of interest to the expansive 445-acre site, two remain in situ at this time to discover and enjoy.

Living so close to Hermann Park grants the perfect opportunity to readdress a work/life balance that has slipped too far towards the work side.  Taking time to exercise and reflect, enjoying the fresh air and open spaces is a key component in a sense of wellbeing. In addition to exploring the park on foot, views from The Parklane overlook the green spaces, fountains, trees, and parkland bringing joy and natural beauty into each day.


Finding the motivation to get in the car and drive to a gym can be difficult and inevitably takes a chunk of time out of an already busy schedule. Residents at The Parklane have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center within the building, a space to reach within minutes and enjoy light exercise or a determined workout. Not only are time savings accrued, but a sense of community also builds as residents get to know each other and work out in the shared space.

For the days when the Houston weather is too tempting to stay out of, a tennis court awaits the settling of an old score, the breaking of a new record, or the start of a new friendship with a new partner. Pictured below in addition to the tennis court is the “outdoor fitness experience” space for residents to embrace their love of the outdoors.

Equally suited to exercise and leisure, the swimming pool offers the perfect space to enjoy some serious laps or cool down with a gentle swim.

Spend more time with man’s best friend

The Parklane is a dog (and cat) friendly property with a fenced-in dog park on-site. When it’s good for you and your furry friend to spend some quality time together, the walkable neighborhood surrounding The Parklane provides a multitude of options to get outside and take some precious time to turn a chore into a pleasure.

Take time to enjoy Houston’s culture
