The buyer closed Friday on a townhome in the $8.2 million development, located between Alabama Street and Richmond Avenue just east of Kirby Drive. At 55 percent sold, Upper Richton has one townhome and five single-family homes available for buyers looking to enjoy a luxury, pedestrian-friendly lifestyle in Houston’s Inner Loop.

“Since the first purchase agreement was signed, the neighborhood has continued to get better,” Conrad said. “The Upper Kirby District is one of the most walkable in Houston, and new construction projects like the Kirby Collection, just a block away from Upper Richton, will add dozens of restaurants and shops to an already amazing neighborhood.”
