Moran ranch north of Houston purchased for residential community

The Moran family ranch is just south of FM 1097 and east of Interstate 45. It is being redeveloped into a residential community.

A pair of developers have closed on their acquisition of the Moran family ranch, a 500-acre tract in Montgomery County where the new owners are planning a residential community of more than 850 homes and multiple commercial sites.

Houston-based Satya Inc. and Stolz Partners of Alpharetta, Ga., purchased the property from the heirs of oil and gas magnate W.T. Moran. The purchase price was not disclosed.

The land is south of FM 1097 and east of Interstate 45. It is across I-45 from The Woodlands Hills, the newest development from Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corp.

The property is split between the extraterritorial jurisdictions of the cities of Conroe and Willis. The cities will eventually annex the community, the new owners said.

“This project is going to bring huge tax bases and economic development to both of those cities,” Sunny Bathija, Satya’s chief executive, said.

The new owners have sold 36 acres to retail developer Fidelis Realty Partners for what is expected to be a grocery-anchored shopping center. Fidelis has an option to buy an additional 31 acres.

Bathija said a national homebuilder, whose name he declined to disclose, is under contract to buy 240 acres slated for housing. The homes are expected to be built on a range of lot sizes with prices from around $250,000. Construction could begin in about two years.

The property is in an Opportunity Zone, which can provide tax benefits to investors who own land in the area for a set amount of time.

Satya and Stolz have created two in-city municipal utility districts to bring utilities to the community. The portion of the land in the city of Willis is also within a TIRZ, or Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone.

In all, the developers expect to spend as much as $40 million to develop the site’s infrastructure, including a feeder road along Interstate 45.

The new owners, who have had the property under contract for several months, intend to call the community Moran Ranch.

“It’s such a historic farm,” Bathija said. “Why try to create a new brand?”

Stolz Partners tops out condo mid-rises near Memorial Park, Upper Kirby

My San Antonio | December 11, 2018
By Katherine Feser

Residential developer Stolz Partners has been busy putting up trees that would look right at home in a decked-out holiday living room. Instead, the trees now decorate the tops of two separate condo projects that reached their final construction heights in December.

Stolz Partners on Monday hoisted a 10-foot pine tree to the roof of The Sophie at Bayou Bend, a seven-story development that will bring 39 condo units to 6017 Memorial Drive next year. The project, a few blocks east of Memorial Park overlooking Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, is 60 percent presold.

Earlier this month in the Upper Kirby District, the developer celebrated the topping out of Giorgetti Houston near Kirby and Alabama. Both of the projects are set to open in winter 2019.

Designed by Mirador Group and marketed by Sudhoff Cos., both midrises will offer private loggias with outdoor kitchens, an optional outdoor porch potty for pets, and private garages. Private terraces average more than 400 square-feet.

Condos in The Sophie range from 2,800 to 5,200 square feet and will have 10-foot ceilings. Prices start at $1.6 million.

"The design inspiration for the project began by looking at art, architecture and fashion icons throughout history that have come to represent a 'classic contemporary' style that is timeless," Mirador Group principal Jerry Hooker said in an announcement. "Icons like the Chanel little black dress and classic New York apartment houses of Rosario Candela and Robert Stern gave way to the inspiration behind the architecture, interiors and landscape architecture. Even the name 'The Sophie' stems from the word 'sophistication.' "

Amenities will include a resistance pool; a fitness center with virtual yoga studio; a private lounge with a coffee bar; private garages; a dog park; and 24/7 concierge and porter services.

"The Sophie's presale success speaks to market preferences," Sudhoff Cos. CEO Jacob Sudhoff said. "Graciously sized residences with expansive outdoor terraces, pet-friendly amenities, private garages within the garage, bring a whole new meaning for opting for a home in the sky."

On the Market — Condo Life: Construction under way at Giorgetti

Houston Chronicle | May 27, 2018
By Valerie Sweeten, Condo Life Correspondent

Giorgetti Houston

The Upper Kirby area is soon to be home to Giorgetti Houston, the first totally branded real estate project for Giorgetti, the 120-year-old Italian furniture maker.

With construction officially under way after the groundbreaking ceremony on May 15, this boutique midrise will be located at 2701 Steel St. amongst mature oak trees.

This new real estate project is a collaboration between the Mirador Group, Sudhoff Companies and Georgia-based Stolz Partners.

The seven-story boutique midrise will feature 32 flats ranging from 2,700 to 6,800 square feet, with four penthouse options. Ceilings will range from 10 to 12 feet, with balconies offering from 500 to 2,000 square feet. Giorgetti will create a complete residential environment from the kitchen and outdoor cabinetry to paneling, lighting, carpets, closets, woodwork and furnishings.

The boutique condominium will feature outdoor kitchens, al fresco dining, pet-living amenities, a gym and concierge service.

“The building will be representative of the Giorgetti Italian lifestyle, a harmonious fusion of innovative design, architecture, form and function that truly distinguishes the pioneering brand. Each of the flats will be timeless works of art,” Sudhoff said.

The appeal lies in the Giorgetti brand and what it stands for, Sudhoff said.

“Last summer, we hosted a group in Meda, Italy, to tour the factory while experiencing the highest artisanship and woodworking tradition firsthand,” Sudhoff said. “It was an incredibly immersive experience. I know future residents are eager to replicate that immersion in Houston.”

It was Giorgetti’s unusual furniture shapes that served as a design impetus for the project, especially their Origami cabinet, which spurred the vision of the external facade of the building.

Giovanni del Vecchio, managing director of Giorgetti, said beauty is the first source of inspiration for the contribution it makes to improving the quality of life where you live.

“With our partners, we share the same passion, vision, and love for the brand and lifestyle. The result is very special,” said del Vecchio.

Giorgetti Houston is already 50 percent sold, with occupancy slated for winter 2019. Prices begin at $1.4 million.

Jerry Hooker, principal of Mirador Group who is leading the design and planning of the building, said everything from the building’s location to its fixtures and finishes create a unique, refined setting. Between the history, craftsmanship and art, the expected result is a sophisticated environment and classic building for generations to come, Hooker said.

The Giorgetti Houston Sales Center is at 2992 Kirby Drive. For more information, visit Giorgettihouston.com or call 713-600-5062.
