Nearly a year after Hurricane Harvey’s aftermath thrust five-and-half feet of destructive floodwater into Parkside at Memorial, the luxury apartment and townhome community reopened by honoring the constables, apartment staff and property manager who helped rescue its residents and neighbors.
Guests clad in blue to honor Harris County Precinct 5 Constable officers applauded as Jeff Gray, founder and president of Grayco Partners, developer of the multifamily community, presented a $2,500 check to the precinct’s charitable foundation.
While honoring the constables, An Evening of Gratitude: Parkside at Memorial’s Grand Re-Opening Honoring Harris County Precinct 5 on July 26 also celebrated the heroic efforts Parkside’s staff and
property manager exerted to help residents and neighbors during the distressing days following Harvey.
Just steps from Terry Hershey Park in the Energy Corridor District,
Parkside at Memorial spent months renovating several townhomes and first-floor apartments, as well as its upscale amenities, including the pool and fitness center. Guests mingled with the constables and toured the facilities, while sampling libations, listening to DJ Senega spin tracks and noshing on bites from Hungry’s restaurant.
Outside, the doors to Precinct 5’s High-Water Rescue Vehicle were open, giving guests a chance to climb inside.
Winners of a raffle – with proceeds benefiting the precinct’s charitable foundation – went home with a variety of prizes, from a 55-inch television to a Balani Custom Clothiers gift card and a Meadowlake Pet Resort & Training Center gift basket.
Parkside at Memorial, 777 South Mayde Creek Drive, offers luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and spacious townhomes on a quiet cul-de-sac. For more information, visit parksideatmemorial.com, or call 281-368-2000.
