Museum BLVD (4819 Caroline St): 6-Story Condo Building


Recommended Posts

The lower floors will probably be cheaper, which in my opinion, is good. Not everyone can afford a 300k condo. 

Are the prices that low on something like this? I seriously doubt their 1b/1b units go for below 350k.

 

Edit: I've registered and will check it out later.

The exact number of units hasn't been determined yet.  We are testing the idea of condos or single-family homes on our website to see which type of property there is more interest in.  

The condos are actually very nicely priced, the HOA fees aren't too shabby either. The $15,000 extra parking spot is a big frown from me. Will there be an amenities if they are built? I saw the pool for the Downtown units, but not on the Museum District or Midtown project.

 

I'm super anxious to buy something, but I should probably be smart and not buy at the top of the market. That, and I plan to run away to New York City or Germany in 3 years. But there is also rental potential!

Its refreshing to see a developer take the time to respond to questions and concerns. I noticed a response on Swamplot to concerns about signage and they took the sign down almost overnight once it was brought to their attention that it was in the bike right of way. I'm glad they are trying to play fair. I know some could care less.

I dealt with them quite a few years ago when they built the Vistas in Midtown - I was going to buy one, but they had some construction delays that I couldn't wait for.....they were good to work with back then...

This one is more likely to be townhomes now.

At Surge Homes' Museum District location, the developer was planning to build a six-story, 55-unit condominium project on Caroline Street. However, buyers wanted townhomes and single-family homes on the site instead, again because of the walkability of the neighborhood, Conrad said.

Museum BLVD attracted more than 100 interested buyers, each of whom put a $1,900 deposit down to reserve the right to purchase one of 49 condo units. The $11 million condo project is proposed for 4819 Caroline St. in the Museum District, where the median home price is $745,000. Condos in Museum BLVD range in size from 420 to 1,099 square feet and in price from $140,000s to the $340,000s.

Ah that's how they managed a "1 bedroom" in only 420 sq ft - no walk in closet, bathroom is absolute minimum size, and the kitchen is more just a wall decoration.  I wonder how that bedroom feels with both the pictured double bed AND a dresser

420 square feet?!?!?!

 

420 sqft at $140,000 in the this location is much better than what The Ivy was attempting with 304 sqft at $120,000 in east downtown.

 

Over 100 deposits shows there's a lot demand.

Construction has begun on a 37-unit mid-rise condominium project in the Museum District.

After preselling more than 50 percent of the condos, Houston-based Surge Homes secured construction financing through the Houston office of Dallas-based PlainsCapital Bank to build Museum Blvd, according to a press release. Construction began in May on the $12 million project, which is expected to be completed fall 2019, a spokesperson said.
