The Alamond

Make the Alamond a reality! Nestled in the heart of Montrose, the Alamond will be an environmentally sustainable and energy efficient condominium, close to cultural centers, restaurants, and much more. The Alamond's name is derived from two historic streets in Montrose - Alabama St and Richmond Ave.

The envisioned community will feature beautifully designed and thought-provoking architecture with eco-friendly features to promote healthy living. The Highline park-styled rooftop garden will provide residents with a peaceful area to relax and enjoy. This project is intended to encourage active lifestyles with a location just minutes from Buffalo Bayou park and many other opportunities to bike or walk right from the building's front door.

Working collaboratively with great architects, engineers, and builders, Cobuild provides data-driven guidance and recommendations to help the project achieve its purpose - enable you to live, work, and play, in a home and community you love.

If you'd like to help make this groundbreaking community happen, back the project by participating as an Explorer or as a Founder.
