Its Official, I'm moving to South Houston!

Finally, I got respond back from my employer on a report date. I will be moving sometime in April. I will be heading to Houston next week to look for an apartment (w/garage) near my job. I'm very excited as a new phase in my life is coming together in a time where obtaining a career is unheard of.

Any advise would be highly appreciated and look forward to meeting new BMW or car enthusiast at meets or gatherings as well as getting re-acquainted with some old friends. Thanks and see ya up there!

I will also miss my MFest brothers in Killeen, Fort Hood Area, but I'm sure I will see them frequently.

Congratulations on the new job/career! Where is your office located in Houston?

The Houston M group seems to be very active with a number of gatherings and track days. You should have no problem connecting with them...

Edit: Here you go, track day coming up on May 4th! Sign up...

My office will be at El Camino Real. I know the guys at Houston M Club, I actually participated in one of their events at MSR-H. Thanks for the heads up! I almost forgot about the May 4 event.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

you'll want to find a place in Clear Lake if you are working off of El Camino. one of the nicer complexes that also offers garages is on Space Center Blvd, just north of NASA Rd. 1. A co-worker lives there. Welcome to Houston. I have lots of garages and enjoy wrench-a-thons.

BTW, South Houston is not a nice area. You are really moving to the Clear Lake area which is nice.

Do you happen to know the name of the complex? I've looked at a few apartments online in this same area, and they seemed ok I guess.


Thanks for the heads up!

Village on the Lake is the one on Space Center. It is a nice complex.

There are some cheaper ones but newer right off of NASA Rd 1 on the south side of NASA and just west of El Camino. Not sure if they have the garages though.

I live at the voyager on NASA rd 1, all parking garage no individual garage.

If you want a garage there is Village on the Lake off of space center, Villas at Edge Water (I lived there for a year no complaints) right by El Camino, and there is one in Friendswood a bit further away but also has attached garages and it is called The Reserve at Autumn Creek. Whichever one you do end up movingly to let me know and I probably could get a friend a referral from you

Cool thanks, I like the Voyage at Space center, but I need a garage. I called Village on the lake, but they only have 1 BR and I need 2. I try calling The reserve at the Autumn Creek and their website as well as their number doesn't work. I also called Villas at the edge water (what are their prices, I went to the website, but its not posted) I will still go by there.
