Condos for Lease at Il Plazzo Lofts
Il Plazzo Lofts
IL Palazzo Lofts was conceived as a first generation new-build loft style apartment development with an Italian design motif - "Loft Condominium Living with a Touch of Italian Old World Charm" (to quote the original sales brochure). Construction began in 1998 and the first units were ready for occupation in 1999. The official age of the building is the year 2000.
The architect for IL Palazzo Lofts was Carlo di Nunzio, AIA of Synectics Group Architectural Studios, working for and on behalf of the development company Becker Regional Partners Southwest, L.L.C. The local contractor for construction was Tribble and Stephens.
Il Palazzo Lofts is located in a historic district first developed in the 1920s. Many of the older homes in the area have been restored in recent years while others are being replaced with modern town homes and apartments. Commercial and institutional development is also a feature of the neighborhood, examples being museums, a library, health care facilities and day care centers.
Il Palazzo Lofts occupies an entire city block bounded by Calumet, Austin, Prospect and La Branch. The main entrance is on Calumet; the two garage gates open onto Austin and La Branch. The front of the building overlooks the Museum District, Hermann Park and the Texas Medical Center. The rear of the building has commanding views toward Downtown Houston.
The building comprises six floors. The ground floor contains the entrance lobby and under cover, secure parking. Floors 2 through 5 share essentially the same layout, containing 13 units each varying in size from approximately 1,150 sq ft to 2,700 sq ft. Most balconies on Floor 2 are larger than those on the upper three floors. Floor 6 contains six penthouses with floor plans up to 4,300 sq ft and large terraces. Unlike many Houston high and mid rise properties, Il Palazzo lofts have a lot of outdoor space.
Security is an important feature at Il Palazzo. Entry into the building is monitored day and night with a state of the art video system backing up the on-site Concierge staff.
Il Palazzo Lofts is surrounded by landscaped gardens and the Condominium Association also maintains the median strip on Calumet. The property has sidewalks maintained to city standards.
Il Palazzo Lofts is a condominium run by the Il Palazzo Condominium Association. An elected Board of Directors serves and represents the owners and overseas the management of the building and associated services. The Board has contracted with KRJ Management, Inc. to manage the property. Concierge and maintenance staff are contracted from CRS (Custom Residential Services Group)
