The Surge Factor: August-September 2017

The Surge Factor: August-September 2017


We hope this finds you and your loved ones doing well as we all attempt to return to some sense of normalcy in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The storm created devastation for Houstonians; however, we came out on the other side with even more respect for one another as we witnessed countless, selfless acts of heroism and volunteerism in the midst of utter catastrophe. While the world watched on in awe and wonder, Houstonians came together like never before. Houston Strong is what unites us and allows us to prevail in the face of adversity.

Houston Strong

Surge Homes staff also volunteered in Houston area neighborhoods, as well as taking pictures and video of our current and future developments in the latter days of the storm. We wanted to document, firsthand, the state of each property and assess whether there was any accumulation of water at the sites, as well as the surrounding and nearby streets. You can read the press release below to learn the results. Read on for construction updates and more.

Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

At Surge Homes, we believe it is our responsibility, as a member of the community, to do what we can to help Houston after Hurricane Harvey. As such, we made contributions to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and the Rebuild Texas Fund

Additionally, if you follow us, you know we are a proud supporter of Covenant House Texas and their mission to support Houston's homeless youth population. They kept their doors open during Hurricane Harvey for anyone who needed a place to stay. an

During the storm, their facilities took on water and their offices sustained damage. Tuesday, our president, Louis Conrad (pictured with executive director of CHT, Leslie Bourne), was happy to make a donation to assist with necessary repairs. If you are so inclined, here’s a list of items they need:

  • Fresh fruit

  • Meat

  • Non-perishable food

  • Snacks

  • Juice

  • Fresh dairy products

  • Socks (new) for men and women

  • Men’s t-shirts, undershirts, and underwear (all sizes);

  • Women’s underwear and bras (all sizes)

  • New towels and washcloths

Internationally Diverse Clientele

Buyers from around the world choose to live in Houston’s Inner Loop

HOUSTON – (August 18, 2017) – The residential communities under development by Surge Homes® are just as unique as the people who live in them.

HOUSTON – (Sept. 8, 2017) – When Surge Homes® began developing residential communities in Houston's Inner Loop in 2015, they -- along with most Houstonians -- had not been through a storm like Harvey.  

Midtown Park

Midtown is a popular area already filled with legions of great dining options, hopping music venues, and cool bars and lounges. In this pedestrian-friendly, walkable neighborhood, you can even rent bicycles for the hour or day.

Many cities and towns throughout the United States have a ‘Main Street,’ but it’s a safe bet that few can match Houston’s Main Street for its diversity of shopping, dining, nightlife and entertainment. For those living at The Isabella at Midtown, the exploration of it all starts when they step out the door.
