As widely reported, Pelican Builders will soon break ground on a Park Avenue-style midrise tailor made for River Oaks empty nesters. What hasn’t been communicated, however, is the growing movement to change the term “empty nester” to something that more accurately reflects the lifestyle that awaits at The Revere.READ MORE
Given that all 30 residences come with spacious outdoor balconies, these luxury nests will soon be teeming with all kinds of life. After all, balconies at The Revere provide an outdoor space to relax in the fresh air, take in the River Oaks treetop views, and most importantly, grow plants!
For your future-life-gone-vertical, you’ll want plant species that can hold up to Houston’s ever-fluctuating weather like succulents and trailing plants along with seasonal herbs and vegetables. Blue African Sage are a gorgeous variety; and Stachys Glow reflects moonlight for a decidedly ethereal effect, and Creeping Jenny with lime green foliage has a real wow-factor.
“Without the balcony, the history of the world would have looked completely different,” proclaimed architect Rem Koolhaas at the 2014 Venice Biennale, which makes perfect sense given all the proclamations that have been made by leaders perched on them.
Fully Nesting Future Residents at The Revere will have lots to proclaim indeed!
Looking to downsize from your River Oaks home but struggling with the idea of venturing away from the most coveted neighborhood in Houston? We get it. Who would want to move away from the most beautiful residential enclave in town for no reason other than not wanting to maintain a home built for a growing family? When your children now live in their own River Oaks home with your grandkids, the notion of leaving the neighborhood only gets worse.READ MORE
Pelican Builders' Principal Robert Bland can relate. The respected veteran developer – who is responsible for nearly half the high rises in Houston since building the game changing high rise The Woodway in 1974 – raised his own children in River Oaks and has given up the big house for a hassle-free lock-and-leave lifestyle in the neighborhood too. It should come as no surprise, then, that Mr. Bland – along with Pelican Builders President Derek Darnell – sought out a prized property in the River Oaks area for their most exclusive venture to date: The Revere.
Conveniently located one block east from the storied residential high rise The Huntingdon on Kirby Drive near San Felipe Road, The Revere might just be the answer to your real estate prayers. The 9-story boutique property will let you downsize your life without changing your lifestyle – not to mention your 0-1-9 zip code.
Ranging in size from 2,800 to 3,800 square feet, all 30 residences at The Revere come with spacious outdoor balconies, expansive interiors, oversized closets and 11-foot ceilings – the highest ceilings in the Houston condominium market – in addition to an exercise room, meeting room, catering kitchen, and ample storage. Residences will also include hardwood floors, fireplaces, Wood-Mode cabinetry, Sub-Zero and Wolf kitchen appliances.
Best of all, residents can look forward to an unrivaled lifestyle thanks to 24/7 concierge as well as daily valet and porter service – giving downsizing River Oaks empty nesters a reason to stay and play in the neighborhood. It’s no wonder The Revere is already on its way to being sold out and is scheduled to break ground Spring 2018. After all, there’s no place like home.
A new Park Avenue-style midrise – aptly named The Revere for its prime location on the corner of Welch and Revere Streets – is well on its way to a Spring groundbreaking after 30% of the luxury residences sold just weeks after the sales center opened on the building’s future site at 2325 Welch. By offering the maximum comfort and convenience of a River Oaks address with the added convenience of a lock and leave lifestyle, Pelican Builders Principal Robert Bland continues to make good on his commitment to give his customers exactly what they want.READ MORE
“The response to The Revere has been so positive that we are committed to breaking ground in Spring 2018,” said Robert Bland. “It’s truly a milestone event for Pelican Builders and confirms that there is a market for people looking for a hassle-free, luxury lifestyle in a River oaks location.”
Ranging in size from 2,800 to 3,800 square feet – and priced between $1.6 and $2.6 million – The Revere comes with spacious outdoor balconies, expansive interiors, oversized closets and 11-foot ceilings – the highest ceilings in the Houston condominium market – in addition to an exercise room, meeting room, catering kitchen, and ample storage. Residences will also include hardwood floors, fireplaces, Wood-Mode cabinetry, Sub-Zero and Wolf kitchen appliances.
Best of all, residents can look forward to a no fuss lifestyle thanks to 24/7 concierge as well as daily valet and porter service – giving downsizing River Oaks empty nesters a reason to stay and play in the neighborhood where they raised their children.
