The Star was born out of an icon from the fabled days of the early Texas oil business. The historic 1915 Texaco Building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003, and it’s now been beautifully reimagined as the newest community of residential high-rise ​luxury apartments in Houston​. The renaissance revival-style building features elegant vaulted arcades and Tuscan columns, creating an environment that inspires, delights and impresses every guest and resident.

The Star is the latest iteration of the Texaco building, and it features luxurious rental homes designed for the busy professionals who work and play in downtown Houston. The community is outfitted with 286 luxurious downtown Houston apartments and dozens of highly sought-after amenities — all ideally located in the heart of the city.

Few amenities are more appealing than the rooftop lounge area. With skyline views, an outdoor firepit and plenty of seating, this rooftop lounge will soon become your new favorite meet-up spot in downtown Houston. At least, it will be when you’re not relaxing in our resort-style pool, hanging in the lounge or using the on-site golf simulator. The amenities aren’t just about luxury though; convenience is key when you live in the middle of a busting metropolis. That’s why we’ve added subtle perks like valet parking, a 24-hour concierge and additional climate-controlled storage spaces.

Step inside our luxury apartments in downtown Houston and be welcomed by roomy 11’ ceilings, quartz countertops and a plethora of state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances. When the hectic life of a downtown Houstonian gets you down, retreat to the quiet sanctitude of your garden-style tub and rainfall-style shower. Endless luxuries await at The Star.

Teeming with historical relevance, the Texaco Building was at the heart of Houston’s emergence as a major player in the oil industry. You’re invited to take advantage of this rare opportunity to live in a historic Houston landmark. After extensive renovations that enhanced the building while preserving its most iconic features, The Star is ready for move-in.
