Dakota Lofts

2 art galleryThe 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.

The term Lofts is WAY over used. This is a true Loft style building. It was built in 1911 as a paint factory. It was BEAUTIFULLY re-purposed as downtown lofts in 1993. Huge open floor plans. Giant 12+ foot ceilings. Exposed brick and concrete everywhere. Rooftop deck. Underground parking. Controlled gated entry. Onsite gym. Free laundry. Central air. Elevator. Huge lobby that looks like an art gallery. Walkable to tons of cool and hip stuff. This is the property you've been waiting for! Don't settle for some lame bland new downtown building with cookie cutter units. See what true loft living can be like. Contact us today! NOTE: This unit isn't available till July. We have another available now that's smaller for a few hundred bucks less.

Beautiful open loft located in Downtown Houston's warehouse district. Minutes away from the metro light rail, UH Downtown and more! This is a real deal loft!! Lease price includes water, valet trash pick up and assigned garage parking! Dakota Lofts built in 1911 as the Bute Paint Factory is located in the heart of the warehouse district on the edge of Downtown Houston... The Lofts converted in 1992 was the first sign of urban renewal and was recognized as the leader in applying new styles to the true Loft lifestyle living in DT Houston. Just blocks from the UOH and Houston's rail. The lofts are patterned after the NY style lofts. The historical buildings' surrounding the Dakota Lofts gives one the illusion of downtown New Orleans. Stroll through the lobby art gallery or enjoy the downtown view from the roof sky-deck or make friends at the Famous Last Concert Cafe.
