Designed by Talbott Wilson and built in 1984, The Huntingdon is one of Houston’s most prestigious luxury high rises. Its location at 2121 Kirby, on the edge of River Oaks, only adds to its cache.
The neighborhood is also just north of the bustling Upper Kirby District, which has undergone considerable redevelopment and many improvements of late, including some of the finest shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. River Oaks and The Huntingdon are also within a couple miles of both the River Oaks and Highland Village Shopping Centers, and are not far from the Galleria to the west and a short drive from Downtown and the Theatre District. Also nearby are Greenway Plaza and Neartown/Montrose.
At 34 stories tall and reaching 503 feet, The Huntingdon was once the tallest residential building in Texas – a title it held until the Mercantile Building in Dallas, whose spire is twenty feet taller, was converted into residences. The Huntingdon is still the tallest residential building in Houston (and the 27th tallest Houston building overall) and, in any case, certainly remains one of the city’s most elite.
When it was constructed, many of its 120 units (with six penthouses) were purchased as raw space and custom built to owner specifications. This has resulted in a wide variety of luxurious homes with unique build-outs, finishes and floor plans in varying sizes from 800 square feet to over 12,800.
In addition to its premier location, The Huntingdon offers its residents an exceptional lifestyle with some of the best amenities in the Bayou City, including first rate concierge service, two swimming pools, an exercise room and sauna, pet access, valet parking, an underground parking garage, storage space, service elevators and two adjoining party rooms with a catering kitchen available.
A majestic building with a colorful history and a “Who’s Who” list of residents, The Huntingdon is a River Oaks and Houston landmark.
