Guide to Capitol Lofts Condo Houston

Originally built in 1908 for office and retail use, Capitol Lofts is a 10-story converted building with 35 units. Capitol Lofts sits next to St Germain condos, just a few blocks away from Theatre District and Historic District.

Buying a condo in Capitol Lofts can be tricky. It’s a converted building with only a few units sold each year. Some units have been updated while others are maintained to keep the “loft style” intact (exposed ductwork, high ceilings, brick walls). There are also a lot of new construction projects in the Downtown area. This is dramatically changing the views of other units, while also providing comparable condos in newer buildings.

To get personal advice on buying or selling a Capitol Lofts unit, contact Paige Martin, one of Houston’s best condo Realtors and one of the top ranked Realtors in the United States.

"The entire Houston Properties Team was excellent to work with. Incredibly informed, proactive, and responsive, we could not have been happier with our Houston home search and the property we purchased. Will definitely work with this great group again in the future." - Kathryn Kaufman (Google Review)
