Redesigning History & Shaping the Future in Houston

Randall Davis has worked on many things: transforming the Houston skyline, renovating historical landmarks like The Rice Hotel, and more. His latest venture is to encourage Houstonians and people looking to Houston for property to buy instead of lease. With many people abandoning the suburbs of Katy, The Woodlands, and The Energy Corridor, there’s never been a better time to trade monthly rent for a mortgage.


Many people are familiar with Randall’s warehouse-inspired loft properties The Dakota Lofts, The Tribeca Lofts, and Hogg Palace. These austere, stylish loft style apartments are highly sought after because of three things: location, amenities, and design. But, as with any apartment or leasing property, tenants eventually leave because they want to live in a different city or, usually, because they want to own equity.


With this in mind, Randall, Natalie, and their creative team conceived The Marlowe. Currently being constructed at 1311 Polk St. downtown right across from the Houston House of Blues, this property is a brand new venture for the city of Houston. Marlowe is the face of this structure (which resembles a classic pinstripe suit) and he has one thing to tell the world: it’s time for the end of rent.


While Randall’s other current development The Arabella is design focused and starts around $800,000 The Marlowe offers soaring ceilings, roomy floor plans, and all of the amenities you’d expect in a Randall Davis property starting around $450,000. Starting with the first of the aforementioned three tenets of tenants, this property has location, location, location. The Marlowe client loves a night on the town and being walking distance from live concert venues, The Toyota Center, Discovery Green, BBVA Compass Stadium, and more, this property fulfills that tenet fully.

 It's Not Home Without Comforts

Next up: amenities. Many Randall Davis properties feature amenities such as imported cabinetry, customizeable unit options, 24 hour concierge service, pied-a-terres, The Marlowe is no exception to this. The sauna, steam room, fire pit, and state-of-the-art fitness center also add to this lifestyle oriented property. In total, you can choose from more than 20 floor plans (including penthouse options) all at varying price points to make owning stylized property accessible to everyone.

That brings us to the third tenet: design. A quick look at The Marlowe website shows you that every ounce of this project exudes design. Clients have more control to individualize their homes, every unit features 10’ ceilings with 10’ of glass, and all living areas feature hardwood floors. There have been many developments crop up in Houston over the last few years, but nothing as focused on modern aesthetics and pragmatic functionality as this.

Marlowe may be smarter than you, but Randall Davis is showing everyone that they can become Marlowe. End rent and start investing in your future with a highly unique condo in a walkable neighborhood.
