Inspired by the property’s location, undulation, secluded entry and wooded environment, Butler Brothers Development has for several years envisioned a garden home development community that allows residents to reside in the heart of River Oaks/Tanglewood while escaping the rush of the city. This lock-and-leave community is like no other: a well landscaped gated entry will open to a private bridge that crosses to a secluded wooded hollow. Nestled in the trees, the Acadian style architecture is warm and charming, evoking the Bayou City’s finest design.
The location could not be any better for this product type. Close proximity to Memorial Park, the Galleria, the area's most upscale residential neighborhoods, and the city’s second largest office submarket offer a unique opportunity to create a live-work-and-play environment. Another project, Place des Vosges, is just west of this property and has nearly sold out leaving a gap in the market. Audubon Hollow will come on line with very little competition, and no other project of this caliber is currently under development.
The Audubon Hollow site is unmatched in its natural amenities, with a small section of property that accesses the main cross street, providing a naturally secluded entry that can be easily gated. Up against a wooded hollow where the buffalo bayou reaches out and creates a scenic ravine, the property allows for a natural seclusion and sets up the opportunity to create a large lot feel without the trouble of maintenance. Turning onto the property and crossing the private bridge, you feel as though you have entered a secret garden.
The site plan layout will consist of the homes wrapping around a central park area with a strong connection to the hollow preserve that defines the property. The context of the site, including the architecture and the site layout, has a strong similarities to Audubon Place near Audubon Park in the St. Charles district of New Orleans; hence the name Audubon Hollow.
