Guide To Commerce Towers Houston Condos For Sale

Commerce Towers

One of Houston’s most iconic buildings, the Commerce Towers features 125 units with a central Downtown location.

Commerce Towers Executive Summary

Built in 1928, the Commerce Towers is a Jesse Jones development with a central Downtown location, full-service amenities, and unique floor plans.

  • RENOVATED HIGHRISE: Previously the “Chamber of Commerce Building”, the Commerce Towers was originally built with only 9 floors in 1928. Jesse Jones, a Houstonian icon, led the redevelopment of the historic building and added more floors in the 1930s. The building was converted to a 25-story fully residential highrise in 2002. Texas Construction Magazine awarded Commerce Towers “Condominium of the Year” and “Award of Excellence” for the building’s quality rehabilitation and renovation.
  • UNIQUE FLOOR PLANS: Commerce Towers features 125 units and tri-level penthouses with rooftop terraces. Featuring a stunning Downtown view extending up to River Oaks and Memorial, all units come with a spacious living space, state-of-the-art appliances, and intricate interior design. Standard unit amenities include 11′ to 18′ ceilings, hardwood floors and sound-insulated walls.
  • FULL-SERVICE AMENITIES: Commerce Towers is a full-service building with 24/7 concierge and valet, bi-weekly dry cleaning service and car wash service. Residents also enjoy great amenities including a fully-equipped fitness center, heated rooftop swimming pool, media room, conference room, and party room with kitchen.
  • CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT: Commerce Towers has a central Downtown location, right within Houston’s Central Business District. The building’s residents working Downtown are only a few minutes away from their workplace. Downtown is one of Houston’s major employment centers with over 150,000 employees and more than 3,500 businesses.
  • ENTERTAINMENT AND SPORTS VENUES: Downtown houses some of Houston’s popular entertainment and sports venues. Home to The Astros and The Rockets, the Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center are less than a mile away from Commerce Towers. Discovery Green and Green Street are also a few minutes away from the building. Just a couple of blocks from Commerce Towers, the Bayou Place Entertainment Complex is a 130,000-square-foot complex with full-service bars, restaurants, theatres and house films.
  • CULTURE AND HISTORY: Residents are just minutes from Downtown’s Theatre District, one of Houston’s popular cultural hubs. Around 2 million people visit the district annually. It houses 4 entertainment venues: Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, Wortham Theater Center, Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, and Alley Theatre. The building is also near historical landmarks like Allen’s Landing (Houston’s founding site and original port), and Market Square Park (previous site of the original city hall).
  • METRORAIL ACCESS: Residents have great access to the MetroRAIL’s Red Line. The Main Street Square Station is only a block away from Commerce Towers. Downtown also has a wide network of pedestrian walkways and bike lanes. (See Houston Highrises Near METRORail.)
“Paige Martin and her team are THE condo experts in Houston. Paige has literally written the book (The Definitive Houston Condo Buying Guide) about buying a condo in Houston. They know what buildings to avoid, what floor plans to be wary about, and they have relationships to help with off market inventory and sales. If you’re considering buying or selling a condo (new construction or one of the current buildings) I would highly recommend you talk to them. You won’t find any other Realtor or team who is as knowledgeable as they are about the pro’s and con’s of Houston’s highrise buildings. They are fabulous to work with, are very candid with their advice and will look out for your best interests. I highly recommend the team.”

Buying in The Commerce Towers can be tricky for several reasons. The building has over 100 units, each with different pros and cons. For instance, Downtown has seen a surge in new construction development in the last 10 years. This has affected the views from some units in the 25-story building, which can affect resale values.

The Commerce Towers is also just over a decade removed from conversion, and there are numerous comparable new construction condo buildings in Houston today.
