The Sophie At Bayou Bend Condo | Guide To The Sophie Houston

The Sophie At Bayou Bend

One of Houston’s new construction condos, The Sophie At Bayou Bend features 42 residences near Memorial Park and Bayou Bend Collections and Gardens.

Sophie At Bayou Bend Executive Summary

A derivative of the word “Sophisticated”, Sophie At Bayou Bend is a new construction development located in Memorial Park. The building features spacious living spaces with classic contemporary architecture.

  • NEW LUXURY BOUTIQUE MIDRISE: Sophie At Bayou Bend is a luxury condo project from Stolz Partners (same group that brought us another new luxury condo Giorgetti). Units for sale have an average list price of $1.8M, on par with some of the most expensive and exclusive residential condos in Houston.
  • CLASSIC CONTEMPORARY DESIGNS: The Sophie features classic contemporary architecture with design inspirations from New York’s Rosario Candela building and fashion icon Chanel little black dress. Houston-based Mirador Group is behind the exquisite interiors and timeless building design of The Sophie.
  • SPACIOUS FLOOR PLANS: With units ranging in size between 2,400 square feet to almost 5,000 square feet, The Sophie’s floor plan is among the largest units in the city. Each unit also features a 400-square foot outdoor terrace with fireplace, grill and summer kitchen.
  • EXCLUSIVE AMENITIES: The mid-rise building offers residents exclusive amenities including 24-hour concierge and valet parking, a fitness center with a virtual yoga studio, two resistance pools, and landscaped grounds with a dog park. Residents also get to enjoy additional services like in-home chefs, housekeeping, car maintenance, dog walking, and personal trainers. Each unit will feature 10-foot ceilings, engineered wood floors, spa-like bathrooms, state-of-the-art appliances, and pre-wiring for a home automation system.
  • NEAR GALLERIA AND DOWNTOWN: Residents are just a few minutes away from Galleria area, a major Houston job center with more than 23 million square feet of office space. Housing the headquarters of prominent companies with over 150,000 employees, Downtown is about 5 miles away from The Sophie. Energy Corridor, an energy-oriented business district, overlaps with western Memorial area and is home to 300 companies and over 90,000 employees.
  • MEMORIAL PARK: About a mile west of The Sophie, Memorial Park is Houston’s largest urban park with 1,500 acres of green space. It features hike and bike trails, playing fields, sports facilities like tennis and volleyball courts, skating rinks and golf course.

Buying a condo in The Sophie At Bayou Bend can be tricky. It’s a new building so there are limited historical sales trends (like you can find from some of Houston’s top performing luxury condos).

In addition, The Sophie is pricing units at some of the highest prices per square foot of any comparable building in the city. It is unproven if the market will support these high prices per square foot (compared to prices from nearby condos).

“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 Houston Properties Team.”
