The Lofts on Post Oak Boulevard
by Michele Marano June 22, 2017
Most people who know Houston are familiar with Post Oak Blvd. As long as one can remember, Post Oak has always been the heart of the Galleria and while it has changed over the years, it is still continuously transforming today. Over just the past couple of years, Astoria (high-rise) and BHP Billiton added new heights to the area – heights as in towers. The posh Boulevard has a bit of everything for everyone – lots of restaurants, shops, Energy Companies, and a new bus lane coming soon. That’s right. Being the busiest area, aside from downtown, there is no method of transportation to and from other areas of Houston. In an attempt to resolve this, a bus transit lane is being designed for Post Oak Blvd, specifically for its’ commuters.
So, while Post Oak continues to evolve and grow, why not own a condo on the Boulevard while prices are still affordable? It’s a question that should be asked if you travel to and from Houston or work in the area. For $250,000, in the heart of the Galleria, you can own 869 sq. feet, overlooking one of 6 pools with amenities that include coffee, movie, computer, conference and club rooms, a beautiful fitness facility and a lavish entertainment/kitchen area for parties. In addition, the condo unit has a low monthly maintenance fee of $382. This is rare with mid-rise and high-rise condominiums, especially those within the area.
If you compare a similar size residence in the first, second and third largest cities, (New York, LA and Chicago), you will not find a condominium (also called co-ops) anywhere close to this price. Located in one of the most desired areas of Houston, the building is situated perfectly between shops, restaurants, hotels and a busy work environment. Across the street is Apache Corp, and SUEZ and a short distance away is Marathon Oil Corp. and Schlumberger, which makes this condo an ideal home for someone who works for one of the many Energy Corporations located in the area. In addition, Uptown Park is 2 blocks away, and the beautiful upscale Whole Foods Market is just one block north of the Lofts. If you’re an outdoorsy type, you will enjoy the monthly gathering of food trucks just across the street and the holiday festivities held at Uptown Park in December.
Whatever the time of year – spring, summer, fall or winter, there is always something for you to do while living on Post Oak Blvd.. And if you want to get away from the Galleria, you will soon be able to hop a ride on the bus transit system and head out to another part of Houston.
The loft condo has bamboo flooring in the living area, slate in the kitchen and bath and new carpet in the bedroom. The condo has been freshly painted pale chic gray, with gray baseboard and trim accent, and carpet is a beautiful plush dark grey (below).
Condo overlooks one of 6 pools on the grounds. Your living room has access to a French door, which opens to outside pool view.
Kitchen opens to living area with a bar counter and small dining area. All appliances, including refrigerator and washer and dryer will remain with the unit. The washer and dryer is located inside the bathroom – a closet area.
Below is the clubhouse kitchen and entertainment area adjacent to the lobby. Its a great place to relax with friends and enjoy the activities held at the Lofts. For more info on the condo, please contact Michele@MicheleMarano.com or 713-899-8420. MLS # is 59998614 on www.HAR.com.
