When Marvy Finger developed his first Houston apartment project in 1960, it offered a few basic amenities.

Colony Oaks, a two-story, 317-unit garden-style apartment complex near the Galleria, featured landscaping, courtyards and a swimming pool.

One of the prolific Houston multifamily developer’s most recent projects — 1900 Yorktown — is located just three miles from Colony Oaks.
