A Houston homebuilder is planning to bring as many as 87 townhomes to a former Union Pacific property in the Washington Avenue corridor.

Billed as White Oak Station, the development is a project by the builder City Choice Homes and Happen Houston, the broker for the property, which has similar projects across the Houston area.

"It is super preliminary at this point, but we'll be looking to bring a high-end product tailored to the area," said Michael Afshari, an adviser with Happen Houston.

White Oak Station will likely offer designs and finishes similar to those from its Heights-area Park at Northwood development, which is in the process of building out, he said.

The site is currently up for consideration for a subdivision replat by the Houston Planning Commission, which deferred a decision on the application April 1 for two weeks to allow for further review.


The 4.5-acre property sits at the southwest corner of Hicks and Studemont Streets, putting it near the Lower Heights development and adjacent to two multifamily communities, CoOp at Summer Street and Broadstone Summer Street.
