Want to live in an historic part of Houston Texas? If so, why not consider Peacock Plaza?


Located at 1416 Austin St, Houston, TX 77002, these Houston Texas apartments are a fine example of art deco architecture that was prevalent in this area before World War II.


The two Spanish-tinged, red-brick pre-war buildings, one of which is adorned with an eye-catching tile mosaic of a proud peacock, also have dark green and white awnings and contain a total of 32 studio apartments.


About Peacock Plaza


The Peacock and Plaza Court Apartments are located in southeast downtown Houston at the corner of Bell and Austin Streets. The two buildings, the Peacock (northern building) and Plaza Court (southern building) are two-story, U-shaped structures with narrow courtyards opening to the south. Many apartment buildings were constructed during Houston’s building boom in the 1920s, but few remain today.


The Peacock and Plaza Court buildings are traditionally eclectic, primarily influenced by the Mission style. The architect of the buildings, Lenard Gabert, was a student in the first entering class of Rice University and had a long career designing both residential and commercial buildings in Houston from the 1920s to 1970s. Gabert’s most celebrated work in Houston includes the 1939 Eldorado Ballroom on Elgin Avenue; the 1940 Brochstein’s Inc. building (with I. S. Brochstein); the 1949 Temple Emanu El (with MacKie & Kamrath); and the 1958 Julian Hurwitz House (with W. Jackson Wisdom).
