  • UNIQUE LOFTS: The 6-story Il Palazzo is a new-build loft style condo featuring 58 units including 6 penthouses. With units between 1,150 square feet up to 4,300 square feet, Il Palazzo condos also come with high ceilings, open floor plans and exposed ductwork and brick walls.

There are 19 museums located less than a mile from Il Palazzo. Popular destinations include the Museum of Fine Arts, the Children’s Museum, and the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

One of Museum District’s popular destinations, the 445-acre public park houses a golf course, the Houston Zoo, and the Houston Garden Center. Jogging trails, playgrounds, and picnic areas are also available within the park.
  • EASY ACCESS TO MEDICAL CENTER AND DOWNTOWN: Museum District is located in between two major employment districts, Medical Center and Downtown. Il Palazzo is only less than 2 miles and 4 miles away from the Medical Center and Downtown, respectively. Home to 52 medical institutions and facilities, Medical Center has over 106,000 employees.

“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.”

Buying an Il Palazzo condo can be tricky. Some units feature premier views (Downtown & Medical Center) while others overlook less exciting views. There are also a lot of new construction condo development in the Museum District and Texas Medical Center areas. Lastly, very few units go on the market for sale.
