Inter-Pier LLC, a joint venture between The Interfin Cos. and Pierpoint Capital, together with The McNair Group and Hudson Brothers Real Estate L.P., officially broke ground on Belfiore, a 26-story high-rise condominium that will redefine Uptown’s vibe and skyline.
Developers had announced construction of the high-end residential building in June 2013, in an effort to capitalize on the growing demand for spacious, luxury high-rise homes in Houston’s Galleria submarket.
“Homeowners will soon have a luxury Galleria-area high-rise option combined with the space and square footage you would find in a freestanding home,” said Giorgio Borlenghi, president of The Interfin Cos., in a statement for the press. “Belfiore is the culmination of more than 30 years of listening to our homeowners, coupled with our dedication to quality, luxury and refinement to create a building unlike any other in Houston.”
The 336,322-square-foot residential tower will be situated on a two-acre Uptown tract at the southeast corner of Post Oak Lane and South Wynden Drive, between San Felipe and Woodway.
Designed by Houston-based Kirksey Architecture, Belfiore will offer 44 four-bedroom residences and two penthouses with spectacular views of both downtown and Tanglewood. Plans call for two homes per floor, each featuring approximately 4,650 square feet of upscale living space and nearly 700 square feet of terraces.
Among a series of exclusive amenities, the building showcases a 24-hour manned guardhouse, 24-hour concierge and valet service, hidden one-level underground parking garage and an extensive recreational outdoor area with a swimming pool and manicured garden.
The project is set for delivery in the spring of 2016. Sudhoff Properties has been tapped to handle sales and marketing for the building, which is already 60 percent sold, according to official statements.
