An Interview with Highland Tower

Highland Tower, located minutes from the Galleria at 2207 Bancroft, is an emerging star among Houston high-rises. The thoughtful, impeccable construction and design of the residence is obvious through the beautiful interiors and unsurpassable views of Houston through floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

“Imagine living each day as you would on a vacation at a five star resort,” states the website. “The luxury, the convenience, the services, the finishes, the feel, the pool, the excitement. Imagine a life with no boundaries and less commuting. Imagine your home completely secure; being able to leave town or extend a trip with no worries about your residence. This is Highland Tower, high rise lifestyle at its finest.”

The all-star team behind Highland Tower lends the building instant class and clout. It was developed by Pelican, a team responsible for (among others) the The Woodway, The Greenway I and II, Woodway Place II and 5000 Montrose at the Museum. It was designed by Ziegler Cooper, a firm that has received over 30 design awards in the last 10 years. The firm Kudela & Weinheimer is responsible for the visionary landscape architecture that surrounds Highland Tower.

Highland Tower opened for residency in mid-2010. Since then, luxury-seeking Houston residents have taken up in Highland Tower, enjoying close proximity to the high-end shopping, dining and lifestyle available to those who live in the Galleria area.

Vickie Ramsey of the Highland Tower leasing office comments on the way that the high-rise building has won over the hearts of its residents. “They love our location,” she says, “and the fact that it has such a boutique hotel feel.”

Who lives in Highland Tower? “A great mix,” Vickie says. “Empty nesters, young professionals, single people, couples, a few international buyers. It’s a very active community.”

There are 15 floors and 93 residences, with a wide selection of floor plans to accommodate any type of lifestyle. Amenities at Highland Tower are some of the best in the city. On the fifth-floor Terrace Level (“worthy of a private club,” states the website), you’ll find an infinity pool with a view of the Galleria, a resistance pool for fitness lovers and a covered pool-side pavilion. Vickie extols the virtues of the pavilion’s “kitchen, flat-screen TVs, full sound system, fireplaces, tables and chairs,” also mentioning the “fabulous water wall” that gives a tranquil background noise to anyone relaxing on the terrace. “You feel like you’re at a resort when you’re here,” she says.

The fifth floor also boasts fountains, a fitness center overlooking the pool, a dining room, a private party lounge, and a private massage therapy room. “It’s 17,000 square feet of green space,” says Vickie: quite a find, in the middle of metro Houston!

Residences from 1-bed/1-bath to 3-bed/3-bath/study are available, square footage from 825 to 2754, prices ranging from $289,000 to $1,300,000. Since the tower is new, there are plenty of occupancies in the building, so if this unbeatable luxury sounds like a good fit for you, check out the listing at CondoDomain!
