“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 HoustonProperties.com team.”
  • DIRECT TUNNEL AND METRORAIL ACCESS: Residents have excellent access to MetroRAIL’s Red Line. The nearest MetroRail stop is the Main Street Square Station, about 1 block away from Commerce Towers. Downtown Houston also features a wide network of pedestrian walkways and bike lanes. (See Houston Highrises Near METRORail.)

Buying in The Commerce Towers can be tricky for several reasons. The building has over 100 units, each with different pro’s and con’s. For instance, the building has 25 floors and Downtown has seen a surge in new construction development in the last 10 years: This has affected the views of some units, 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.
