Lofts in Houston are a relatively new phenomenon in the Bayou City. There are two kinds of lofts in Houston: soft and hard. The hard space is usually a historic building that has been converted from commercial use for residential purposes. Soft units are new construction developments that emulate their hard counterparts.

Most hard Houston lofts are located in downtown and the warehouse district as these areas house the city’s oldest buildings. Soft construction is most popular in newer parts of the city such as the Galleria and Medical Center. Both soft and and hard types of lofts in Houston rent at a minimum of one dollar per square foot unless units are over 1500 square feet.

Hard renovated units are characterized by original concrete floors, exposed building support beams, exposed duct work, and open floor plans. Soft units are built more in an apartment style and feature polished concrete or hardwood floors, granite counters, garden tubs, and some carpet. One of the key differences between the two types is the open floor plan in hard styles. Many residents have trouble forgoing the privacy they are accustomed to in apartment living for the openness and authenticity of hard lofts in Houston.
