Catalyst Houston
Houston, TX

In November 2014, Marquette broke ground on Catalyst Houston, a 359-unit, 28-story luxury high-rise apartment building in downtown Houston with approximately 7,400 sq. ft. of ground floor restaurant space for Houston’s famed Irma’s Restaurant.  Marquette is utilizing the Downtown Living Initiative (Chapter 380), which is effectively a development grant provided to the first 5,000 units to be developed in downtown Houston and the project will receive a $5.4 million benefit from the grant.  Catalyst Houston encompasses a city block on the northeast side of the Houston CBD and is situated one block from Minute Maid Park.  Catalyst features modern high-end finishes including floor-to-ceiling windows and has various amenities throughout the building, offering residents a unique experience on several floors with sweeping views of downtown Houston.  First units were delivered in the summer of 2017.

Catalyst Chicago
Chicago, IL

In March 2013, Marquette broke ground on a 223-unit, 19-story luxury high-rise apartment building in downtown Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, which has become one of Chicago’s most vibrant neighborhoods within walking distance to some of the city’s best restaurants and nightlife.  The project completed construction in July 2014 and opened its doors at 47% preleased and reached stabilization nine months later.  In October 2015, Marquette joint-ventured with an institutional partner to successfully recapitalize the property with the intention of ensuring a longer-term hold period and investing capital to further the life of the asset.  Catalyst Chicago represents the first in Marquette’s signature Catalyst Collection development portfolio.  The building features approximately 13,500 sq. ft. of street-level commercial space, private structured parking, rooftop pool, fire pits, grilling stations, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, resident lounge with demonstration kitchen, private conference room, and a dog run on the fourth floor outdoor deck.
