Hermann Lofts

One of Houston’s premier converted historic buildings, Hermann Lofts is nestled within Downtown’s Historic District next to the Market Square Park.

Hermann Lofts Executive Summary

Named after the great Houston philanthropist George Henry Hermann, the 32-unit Hermann Lofts is one of Downtown’s first historic conversion projects.

  • CONVERTED LOFT: Formerly known as George Hermann Estate Building, Hermann Lofts was built in 1917 and was converted into a residential condo in 1997. The building housed cotton-related businesses until 1958 and served as the headquarters of the Salvation Army until 1975.  With its rich history, the building was included in the National Register of Historic Places list.
  • OLD WORLD CHARM:  The developers preserved the original structure’s neo-classical design elements including the building’s façade and its iron sidewalk canopy. The units also feature characteristics unique to converted lofts like high ceilings, open floor plans, hardwood floors, and exposed ducts.
  • COMFORTABLE LIVING SPACES: Hermann Lofts condos range between 700 square feet to to 2,100 square feet for one- and two-bedroom floor plans and 6,500 square feet for the penthouse unit. Standard unit amenities include custom lighting, spacious kitchen with granite countertop and stainless steel appliances, and private balconies.
  • HISTORIC DISTRICT: Hermann Lofts sits at the heart of Historic District. Historic District is home to Houston’s historical properties, landmarks and buildings like Allen’s Landing (Houston’s founding site and original port), University of Houston–Downtown and Market Square Park, to name a few. Located just a block away from Hermann Lofts, Market Square Park features green space, public art exhibit, entertainment plaza and dog runs. Residents also get to enjoy several restaurants and bars, including Niko Niko’s, OKRA Charity Salon, Warren’s, Bad News Bar, and Batanga. (See Houston Nightlife Map: Best Downtown Restaurants and Bars.)
  • DOWNTOWN ATTRACTIONS: Residents are just a few blocks away from Downtown’s popular attractions including the Theatre District, Avenida Houston, Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center. The Theatre District houses Houston’s nine performing arts organizations, Bayou Place entertainment complex, restaurants and bars. One of Downtown’s newest entertainment hubs, Avenida Houston is home to  Discovery Green’s, public art installations, Hilton Americas-Houston and the new Marriott Marquis.
  • NEAR DOWNTOWN OFFICES: Hermann Lofts provides residents excellent access to Downtown offices. Housing  more than 40 million square feet of office space, Downtown is Houston’s Central Business Center. The district is home to more 3,000 business with over 150,000 employees.
  • METRORAIL ACCESS:  One of the Houston condos near the METRORail, Hermann Lofts allows easy commute to and from key districts like The Medical Center, EaDo, and Museum District. The nearest METRORail stop is Preston station, located only two blocks away from Hermann Lofts.   (See Houston Highrises Near The Metrorail Guide.)
“Paige Martin and the Houston Properties 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.”

Buying a condo in Hermann 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.
