Museum BLVD’s Final Look
- May 03, 2017
After submitting various architectural styles to nearly 3,500 potential Houston homebuyers, Surge Homes released the final exterior rendering for the $11 million, mid-rise Museum BLVD condominium project. The development will display a building envelope made of stucco featuring a façade with ceramic tile patterns, reminiscent of the modern shapes and colors found throughout Museum District. Most homes will include a balcony or terrace, but the condominiums on the first floor will offer expanded outdoor living spaces with modern, artistic railings created from laser-cut metal.
“We selected the most popular design from our market research and, over several months, refined it with our architect,” Ben Lemieux, co-owner of Surge Homes, said in a prepared statement. “We are very proud of the results because it marries the modern construction of many museums in the area.”
Prospective buyers have 10 floor plans to choose from, including lofts, one- and two-bedroom floor plans, and penthouses with large terraces and skyline views. Their size ranges between 466 square feet to 1,102 square feet and can be purchased at prices starting from $140,000. All condos in the project include luxury, all-inclusive, European-inspired interiors with 41 professionally coordinated kitchen design packages and 29 bath design packages. Moreover, each home will be move-in ready with all kitchen appliances, as well as washer and dryer connections.
The development will feature gated, reserved parking in the garage and secure access through the lobby and parking areas. Furthermore, thanks to the architects’ efforts to create and maximize the landscape design, the visitor parking was moved into the garage from the front of the building to increase green space.
“We had no choice but to attempt designing a piece of art, considering the neighborhood,” added Louis Conrad, co-owner of Surge Homes. “We wanted to create perfect harmony between form and function.”
Surge Homes announced that later this year, it will launch Museum BLVD condo sales exclusively to its VIP Certificate holders, enabling them to choose their preferred home type and floor plan before residencies become available for public sale. In addition, the company will provide new homeowners with a Quality Assurance Program, including a 10-year transferable Home Buyers Warranty and a Master Insurance Program for the extent of the 10-year warranty.
