Greystar is living up to its image..Greystar still evading and the residents of Memorial Club in Houston, Texas still waiting. NO letter giving us updates, NO meetings, NOTHING!
They do seem to agree with us how wonderful Memorial Club Apts are on their community info line when you call Memorial Club Apts! We residents wholeheartedly agree--the very special attributes they mention about Memorial Club is why we residents love it so much! WE DO NOT WANT OUR HOMES TORN DOWN: Mr. David Reid, Ms Perry, Mr Faith!
Please find somewhere else to tear and build. This is a small patch of land next to a dangerous roundabout. SO many stores, drugstores, high rises, low rises, condos, townhomes, etc. We have enough stores and grocery stores to feed the entire lower southern part of the US!
Whole Foods just built a store about four minutes away, a Trader Joe's not to far, WalMart, Target minutes away, 2 or 3 Krogers, Randalls...a shopping center about three minuts away. Please leave the residents and their homes in peace! We are proud that Memorial Club Apartments are 99% or more at capacity at all times! The Yuppie Set and other professionals love this place and don't mind paying the $ 1,200 or a little more in rent.
We are right next to Memorial Park. As of yet, no letter telling us we were being torn down in Phase I and II as David Reid mentioned in the Chronicle.
He sure did not tell the residents, I guess he is too busy getting his promotion in tearing down buildings in major cities to let us little people know what is going on. BUT remember: we help pay your salaries indirectly...We wish Greystar no harm..we just want our precious homes left alone at Memorial Club Apartments in Houston Texas

Memorial Club, and Larimer, that managed this property did an exemplary job of taking care of its tenants and also the grounds and maintenance. That is one of the many reasons Memorial Club Apts
were always 99% or more capacity full!
Many timse there was a waiting list. This place is a highly sought after place to live, especially among the Yuppie Set.
It is a quiet, relaxing community, and the residents tend to live there a very long time, the majority of them. GREYSTAR EXECS PLEASE READ: Residents and people in the entire neighborhood are in shock and disbelief in what you are doing to the residents.

We are astounded not only what is being done to Memorial Club in Houston, which is a nice place and has always had excellent managment, but the many many complaints against Greystar from across the nation and our fellow Texans. Odessa, Corpus, Houston, I could go on and on!
The common denominator seems to be lack of caring or respect for tenants, and very poorly run properties. Greytar, in all due respect, you are not wanted here..leave us good people alone at Memorial Club. We are happy here and do not want our home torn down. Seriously, you do not have much land to build on, are right NEXT to a dangerous round a bout..it has always been here and I suspect always will be, and right next to an elementary school so probably won't be allowed to even sell beer or wine when the people of this area get through with you.
Think it can't happen? they closed down Specs! And pretty fast, too! Prime real estate area?
It (Specs) was right across the street from Memorial Club and STILL vacant after three or four years. Even before they lost license did not get that much business. And that is when this was the area to live in. NOW is downtown and mid-town.
Buying up land next to a dangerous round a bout and next to an elementary school does not sound like good business sense to us. David Reid, a manager of Greystar in Houston, said in the Chronicle that Greystar is excited about the boom of real estate in Houston. Well, Sir, you guys missed the boat in the real estate area in Memorial Park by about four years. Should go to midtown or downtown.
Leave us alone. Is a little bitty piece of land next to the roundabout..that does not make good business sense and is just making a lot of people mad like hornets..
