Franklin Lofts

2 spice-warehouse-living-room-55740-19001The first of Randall Davis’s loft conversion buildings, Dakota Lofts is located in the heart of the warehouse district on the edge of Downtown in the old Bute Paint Factory Building in an area known affectionately as ‘NoDo,’ or ‘North Downtown.”
The original Dakota Loft Houston building was erected in 1911 by the Bute family in what we know now as Downtown Houston. Though it was converted in 1992, this building has the unique distinction of being Houston’s oldest loft building.
Residents of Dakota Lofts Houston can stroll through the art gallery in the lobby and enjoy the views of downtown from the common terrace, listen to live music in the Last Concert Cafe (moments away) and experience the Atomic Cafe, a theater just up the street.
