Riva at the Park, a seven-story, 22-unit condominium mid-rise developed by Sims Luxury Builders, is set for construction at 3331 D’Amico St. off Allen Parkway with views of Buffalo Bayou Park.

Starting in the $700s, Riva at the Park homes will be available with nine different floor plans ranging from 2,100 to 3,600 square feet. Details include custom-designed Eggersmann kitchen cabinetry and Miele appliances for the kitchens, as well as a spacious guest lobby, controlled access to the building, a fitness facility and climate controlled storage units. The building also features energy-efficient windows and doors and a private parking garage on the first two floors.

 Condo balconies and walls of glass overlook the park and some units will feature views of the downtown skyline. 

The neighborhood offers amenities such as waterfront dining, entertainment venues and shops. Condo balconies and walls of glass overlook the park and some units will feature views of the downtown skyline.

The 160-acre Buffalo Bayou Park — which underwent a $58 million renovation — is a short walk from the condos. Lost Lake at Dunlavy, the much-anticipated private event restaurant from the Clark Cooper team; a dog park and a skate park are some of attractions nearby.

 “When I saw the site, I immediately recognized its potential,”  Sims said in a statement. “RIVA at the Park is our opportunity to give Houstonians something that currently doesn’t exist — an innovative and sophisticated urban home within a tranquil environment featuring expansive views of the city while the best amenity of all lies right outside the lobby doors — Buffalo Bayou Park.”
