Sitting on the northern edge of downtown Houston, Texas is a loft condominium building that mixes history with class: The Rice Lofts.

If you want to live close to the heart of downtown Houston where United States Presidents and numerous other dignitaries have stayed, then the Rice Lofts may be just the place for you.

Before being developed into a loft condominium building, the space where The Rice Lofts stands was first known for being the Capitol of the Republic of Texas. After that came the Capitol HOtel, which was a five-story hotel that served many of the people who came to downtown Houston.

It was not until 1913 that Capitol Hotel was demolished to make way for the Rice Hotel, which became one of the most popular hotels in Houston during its time. In fact, it was in Rice Hotel that President John F. Kennedy delivered one of the last speeches before he was assassinated.

In 1977, the Rice Hotel closed down and, two decades later, the building was developed into The  Rice Lofts.

Other features of The Rice Lofts

Developer Randall Davis Company, one of Houston’s leading loft development companies, spent over 27 million dollars to turn the closed-down hotel into a grand loft-condominium building.

Today, you can find that the loft condominium units at Rice Lofts live up to the grandeur of the Hotel after which it was named. Maple hardwood floors that are 100 years old bring a homey feel to the living spaces, while the exposed brick walls and exposed air conditioning vents give the units a modern, industrial look. The high ceilings range from 10-feet to 18-feet tall, with exposed steel beams running through the ceilings.

The units range in size from one-bedroom to three-bedroom units, making them ideal for singles, couples, or families.

In the two-story lobby of The Rice Lofts, you will be greeted by huge columns, indoor palm trees, and a stained glass skylight. Just outside of the lobby is an entrance to a MetroRail station, making it easy to get to other downtown areas without having to drive.

A short drive away and you can get onto the Interstate Freeway, visit Minute Maid Park, or catch an event at Toyota Center. With the great location of Rice Lofts, everything you need is just a few minutes away.
