Houston is one of the most exciting cities to live in throughout the United States right now, with a hustling and bustling economy, tremendous growth and development, and a future that is as bright as any other city in Texas!
A number of new major real estate projects have been happening throughout Houston (especially in the downtown community), but the development projects that are capturing the most excitement have to be the new condo buildings popping up left and right.
Below we highlight the five very best new condo buildings going up in Houston right now. Each of these are fantastic places to call home, with their own distinct flavor, flair, amenities, and neighborhoods of their own.
Let’s dive right in!
The River Oaks
Sales for condos at The River Oaks opened up in 2016, and inside of the first six months of them becoming available almost 50% of all 79 units had already been sold off.
One of the most luxurious and ambitious condo projects in the Houston area, these condos are a cut above what you’ll find in most cities throughout Texas – it a lot more similar to the kinds of condos you’d find in Los Angeles or New York City.
Multi-story townhomes (averaging 4000 ft.² with an extra 2000 ft.² of outdoor terrace) are part of this development as well, and The River Oaks has all of the luxury amenities you’d expect from a high-end development like this. A fitness center, business and communications center, full-time door service and concierge are all a part of The River Oaks package.
Prices range from about $875,000 for a one-bedroom unit to $10 million for a Penthouse unit, with the average price coming in at just about $2 million. This property is located at 3433 Westheimer Rd. (near St. John’s school), it’s just down the road from the River Oaks District of Houston.
The Sofie at Bayou Bend
Located at 6017 Memorial Dr. in Houston, this new condo development is located so close to downtown Houston that you will be well within walking distance to your favorite shops, restaurants, cafés, and nightlife opportunities – many of them just a stone’s throw from your lobby door at The Sofie at Bayou Bend.
Memorial Park is a quick walk away as well, with a number of other amenities factoring as a big part of the allure of living at The Sofie at Bayou Bend. The main residence lobby is always manned by staff and concierge professionals, and private elevators will take you from your private parking spaces below the residences directly to your floor.
Completely gated, you’ll have a private dog walking area available to you as a resident here at The Sofie at Bayou Bend, but you’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy a private lounge with coffee bar, fully outfitted fitness and wellness center, dry-cleaning services, car maintenance services, housekeeping, and even private chef services – all available as part of The Sofie at Bayou Bend package!
One of the newest condo developments in all of Houston, having only just broken ground in March 2018, residents of this Giorgetti Houston development aren’t going to be able to actually move into the property for at least another year and a half to two years – but that hasn’t tempered excitement about this property in any way whatsoever.
Developed in partnership between the Giorgetti company (a 120-year-old furniture based out of Italy) and legendary real estate development company Stolz Partners, this building is going to feature seven stories and 32 different condo units that range between 2700 ft.² to 6800 ft.² – with multiple penthouses available for sale.
Giorgetti furniture will be tightly woven into the design of this property, with these aesthetics heavily influencing most every aspect of architectural and interior design. Very modern (based off of the renderings already produced), nearly 40% of these condos are already spoken for and construction has just barely begun!
Located in one of the most culture rich districts and communities in Houston today, The Mondrian is going to be a central part of The Museum District neighborhood for years and years to come.
Construction on this new condo development is nearing completion, with residents poised to move into The Mondrian in 2018. Featuring incredible modern architecture, luxurious and oversized condos and Penthouse units, and some of the best amenities of ANY of the condo developments in all of Houston – including having 400 acre Hermann Park, the Houston Zoo, and an 18 hole golf course just a few steps away from the lobby doors – it’s easy to see why so many people are trying to become residents of this development!
The average price for a unit in The Mondrian is just about $1.8 million, but prices are expected to shoot up higher and higher just as soon as construction finishes. Only a handful of units are still available for sale, in the closer this project gets to completion the less likely it is that others will have an opportunity to “getting on the ground floor”, so to speak.
The Revere at River Oaks Village
Everything about The Revere at River Oaks Village has been designed to transplant luxury condo living from major metro areas like New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, and Tokyo right into the heart of downtown Houston.
Offering the convenience of high-rise luxury living with a much more personal touch, only 30 residences are available from The Revere at River Oaks Village – and all of them have the kinds of stately architectural elements, impeccably refined interior design components, and luxury amenities you’d expect from something this first-class.
The River Oaks Country Club is just a short walk away from your door at The Revere at River Oaks Village, as our shopping opportunities at the River Oaks Shopping Center and dining and entertainment options in the River Oaks District Memorial Park is just a short walk away, too, and you’ll have no trouble whatsoever finding exciting and interesting things to do in your new neighborhood!
Residences are priced between $1.5 million and well north of $3 million, making condos at The Revere at River Oaks Village some of the most expensive and most exclusive in the city. Units are still available for sale now, but likely will not be available for much longer!
