Galveston Landmark to Become Condos

The Eibands Building, once home of the Texas Supreme Court, is being transformed into 24 luxury condos by Karam Development Interests. Located at 2201 Postoffice St., the building was originally constructed around 1870 by Ballinger & Jack, a prestigious Galveston law firm that also founded the State Bar of Texas.

The building housed the Texas Supreme Court from 1875 until 1890, and was known as Eibands Department Store from 1900 until the end of the 20th Century.

Plans call for that retail tradition to continue on the first floor, while condos will be located on floors two through four. Units will range in size from 1,523 square feet to 2,012 square feet, and range in price from $313,530 to $486,240.

Amenities of the Eibands Luxury Condominiums will include gated parking, storage units, a rooftop overlook deck and a fitness center. Units will feature granite kitchen countertops and backsplashes, modern stainless appliances and custom build-outs.

Karam's development team consists of Pinnacle Construction Industries Inc., Joe Rozier of Eubanks Group Architects, interior designer Mikel Reper and V.J. Tramonte of Joe Tramonte Realty. Karam also developed the Ice & Cold Storage Building on Harborside Drive in Galveston.
