HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning today, Citiscape – with the exclusive support of Sudhoff Companies – will officially launch pre-sales for Mimosa Terrace, a seven-story, mid-rise sliver that introduces a new aesthetic and design philosophy the sought-after River Oaks area of Houston.
"This property is very special to us, and our goal has always been to create a legacy project that would respect the street and its neighbors, while leaving something special and enduring behind," said Joseph Lee, the Director of Houston-based Citiscape, a family-owned firm that specializes in architecture, development, design, land & space planning and construction management.
Neutral and natural exterior materials will establish a backdrop for a framework of vertical garden spaces – expansive terraces as large as 3,200 square feet in size – with glass railings and built-in perimeter planters, whose contents will eventually envelop the property.
Designed for buyers that prefer the additional security of a building and the convenience of single-floor living, the 11 Mimosa Terrace residences will be serviced by two oversized elevators, providing the option of direct access. The first five residential levels will encompass two units spanning over 4,400 square feet each with 12-foot ceilings, while the single, seventh story penthouse will feature nearly 9,800 square feet of interior, terrace and garden space. Additional highlights of the penthouse – free of central columns – will include a central skylight in the super-sized chef's kitchen and 14-foot ceilings.
According to Victoria Lee, Citiscape's Chief Designer, "There is a wonderful discretion about this project that strays away from neo or faux vernaculars. The eventual purpose of the façade is to fade into the landscape – similar to boutique buildings in Europe – while allowing owners a lavish lifestyle out of view. The concept is to create a living space where residents can enjoy the simplicity and sophistication of modern city living without the sacrifice of space and privacy."
Mrs. Lee has ensured that no detail has been overlooked, carving out truly gracious formal and informal living, plus flex spaces, all conceived to ease the transition from a substantial home. Mimosa Terrace residents will enjoy masters with dual, walk-in closets, state-of-the-art Poliform kitchens, gas fireplaces, utility rooms with trash chutes, niches for hidden safes, storage and ample owner and guest parking.
