Betting High, on Luxury

DESPITE A SEEMINGLY SATURATED condo market, Sudhoff Companies is betting on a banner year for high-rise properties in 2017. Its newest project, The Moderne in Rice Village, is a boutique condominium complex, boasting just six 2,600-square- foot units starting at $1.4 mil and ready for move-in by December.

Several other cool properties under the umbrella of Sudhoff Companies, helmed by the impossibly young Jacob Sudhoff, are also poised to make an impact on the condo market. Simply named The River Oaks, a completely reimagined former apartment building on Westheimer near Edloe, offers nearly 80 units for sale (actually, a majority have already sold). Design maven Lauren Rottet was enlisted to help plan the property, which will begin to open its doors this summer.

And one of last year’s most groundbreaking announcements was the unveiling of the Giorgetti, an Upper Kirby- area mid-rise comprised of 32 residences, each incorporating furniture, cabinetry, lighting and unique inspiration by Giorgetti, the 120-year-old Italian furniture design house. It’s scheduled for completion next year, as is Sudhoff’s 40-unit Memorial Park- area project, The Sophie at Bayou Bend.
