Storied tower overlooking Hermann Park, The Parklane, transforms as high-end condos

High above Hermann Park, a dramatic transformation is underway at The Parklane, a 35-story residential high-rise in Houston’s Museum District. Located at 1701 Hermann Drive, the iconic building was at one time the tallest high-rise residential tower in the city. Today, it is being completely reimagined with modernized residences and first-class amenities. Upon completion, The Parklane will debut 195 modern residences available exclusively for purchase, with prices starting from the $300s. “We built The Parklane in 1983 and were one of the first to introduce high-rise residential living to Houston’s thriving Museum District,” said Nadim Zabaneh, vice president of Houston-Based Tema Development, Inc. “We came to realize there was a niche in the market with a price range conducive to all buyer types, including first-time homebuyers, real estate investors, second homeowners and empty nesters. This drove our decision to convert rental residences into condominiums. Already some of our residents have jumped at the chance to purchase their units.” Tema Development, Inc. has engaged Mirador Group as the architect, interior designer and landscape architect for the project. The Houston-based architecture and interior design firm has a track record for condominium buildings. Click to read more at
