Exclusive River Oaks Apartments Put the Best of Houston at Your Fingertips — Inside Le Palais’ Luxury Land

A Little Slice of Paris in the Middle of the Bayou City

BY // 11.26.19

Houston is a dynamic, exciting place to live, full of secret surprises. It only makes sense that the place you choose to call home exemplifies all the best qualities about The Bayou City — and becomes your very own hidden gem.

New apartment complexes are popping up all over Houston, giving you more and more options of where to live. But all Houston apartments are far from the same. The best still completely stand out from the pack.

Nestled between the city’s hottest French restaurants, Brasserie 19 and Emmaline, and around the corner from La Madeleine River Oaks and Sur La Table, sits this one of kind boutique ultra luxe midrise. Le Palais. Modeled after Paris’ left bank Hotel Rafael, at the site of the former Houston Ballet, Le Palais brings great design and sophisticated living to the Houston apartment scene.


The 160 curated residences were designed to appeal to the discerning long term renter “by choice,” explains Le Palais representative Judy Perdomo. “The interior finishes that other developers just couldn’t, and wouldn’t, do because they don’t make economic sense. But they are incredible. It makes for a truly special building and enhances the resident experience.”

Much more affordable than a high-rise, the property has an outstanding amenity package and services without any of the hassles of the typical Houston apartment megaplex, as there are only 160 residences.

The Parisian-inspired Le Palais apartments in the heart of River Oaks blend intimate, relaxing living with all the stunning amenities and easy access to the city’s entertainment that you could ever desire. Le Palais is a true retreat in Houston’s most coveted neighborhood.

The small size of the community allows for beautiful, meticulously crafted design details, exemplary personalized service, a real sense of community and a private, peaceful lifestyle.

You won’t be able to take your eyes off of the gorgeous apartments. With clean, contemporary lines, Le Palais positively sings. Its carefully curated look is modeled after the style of Paris’ luxury hotels. Light plays off its unique frosted glass, bringing joy with different moods at different times of day.

The units’ interiors are no exception.

“They are super-chic, contemporary and elegant. Almost opulent,” Le Palais rep Vasundhara Mohan tells PaperCity. Imagine sleek granite countertops, top-notch appliances, digital safes and so much more.

Mohan’s personal favorite elements were taken straight from the City of Lights.

“The porcelain tiled floors in each of the apartments and the boulevard windows. I love the floor-to-ceiling windows. They’re huge and the amount of light creates this sense of almost being out in the open,” she says.

The windows feature solar screens, near the units’ en-suite balcony fireplaces.

They also look out onto an array of impeccable views. A lavish saltwater pool sits in the middle of Le Palais, flanked by shady trees and poolside cabanas and an inviting sun terrace.

“It creates a resort-style feel, but still intimate within the community,” Mohan says.

The views that scan the city offer a multitude of sights. “I love that the views are very different. You can see Downtown from many apartments, and you can also see a nice view of the smaller streets, which gives it that more intimate feeling,” Mohan notes.

Le Palais is located in a highly walkable area of Houston at 1916 W Gray Street. In fact, there’s probably no place else you’d rather live in the Bayou City. There are not many places where you can live in the lap of luxury and still have everything you need at your beck and call almost right outside your door.

Le Palais is a quick stroll from Brasserie 19 and within a stone’s throw of several Starbucks, Whole Foods grocery stores and Define.

The gorgeous Buffalo Bayou Park is also close by. The options are virtually endless. You can get out in nature, shop at the nearby River Oaks Shopping District, or take in an art-house film at the iconic River Oaks Theater.

One-bedrooms, two-bedrooms and penthouses are offered in a variety of interesting floor plans. This is a place where it its easy to find your perfect space. Le Palais isn’t just fit for a king — it’s fit for everyone with discerning taste and a love of luxury living.
