The Arabella Houston | The Arabella Condos For Sale Guide

The Arabella

Located next to the River Oaks District and less than a mile from The Galleria, the 34-story Arabella is one of Houston’s newest luxury highrises.

The Arabella Executive Summary

A new luxury high rise project from Randall Davis, The Arabella offers a fantastic Inner Loop location and hotel-like amenities.

Drawing inspiration from New York luxury highrises, The Arabella features unique contemporary architectural designs.

  • NEW HIGHRISE DEVELOPMENT: The Arabella development broke ground in October 2015. Featuring 34 stories with 109 units, The Arabella is one of the newest additions to Houston’s luxury highrises. Its developer, Randall Davis, features an impressive portfolio that includes The Astoria, The Marlowe, and Chateau Ten Sunset.
  • LUXURY AMENITIES: The Arabella features luxury amenities that includes full service 24-hour concierge and valet parking, a starlight pool with sun shelf and hot tub, outdoor kitchen, bar and palm deck and pieds-à-terre for guests. Other building amenities include state-of-the-art fitness center, steam room, massage and sauna rooms and a fire pit.
  • RIVER OAKS DISTRICT: The River Oaks District is just less than a mile away from The Arabella. The River Oaks District is an exciting 14-acre outdoor retail space with intricately landscaped streets. It houses more than 60 high-end boutique shops, streetside cafes, fine dining, and the iPic Theater.
  • PROXIMITY TO THE GALLERIA: Housing the premier shopping trifecta, the Galleria is Houston’s shopping mecca with more than 30 million visitors annually. A few blocks from The Arabella, The Galleria is Houston’s largest mall with more than 350 shops and restaurants. Uptown Park and Highland Village are one mile away and features al fresco shopping and unique international and local boutique shops.
  • CONVENIENT ACCESS TO BUSINESS CENTERS: Residents are few minutes away from I-690 and Westheimer Road, providing residents convenient access to Houston’s key districts. Texas Medical Center is the world’s largest medical center with more than 50 research and medical institutions and around 100,000 employees. Downtown, featuring more than 3,500 businesses with 150,000 employees is just 12 minutes away from the building.

Buying a condo in The Arabella can be tricky given the building’s design – higher floor units have larger floor plans, some units have private elevator entries, and certain views are superior to others affecting the value of the units.

There are no historical sales trends (like you can find from some of Houston’s top performing luxury condos) because it is a new construction building. The Inner Loop is also home to numerous condo and loft buildings, each with its own pros and cons. An Arabella condo buyer would benefit from a good realtor’s advice, specially on how the building and unit compares to other residential condos in the district.

“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.”
