Aptly named a “bridge unit,” this eighth-floor space spans between the 30-story Warwick Towers just north of Hermann Park in the Museum District. The 3,385-sq.-ft. condo it’s part of had $5oK knocked off its initial asking price earlier this week in its relisting by the same agent after a 6-month previous listing expired. The million-dollar view (which curiously is not pictured in the listing) is now priced at $1.15 million — plus a not-insignificant monthly maintenance fee of $2,694.
Semi-separate, the living and dining rooms share their views through windows on both the north and south sides of the unit.

Does the cactus sculpture on the balcony indicate the unit’s south side?
The off-kitchen breakfast area has built-in seating just off the bi-level countertop.
The kitchen appears to have been updated at some point:
The building was built in 1983. This condo has 2 or 3 bedrooms.
In the master suite, there’s a mock fireplace built into the corner’s shelving and storage:
In case of bathrobe emergency, break glass:
A little room used as a study is off the master suite as well:
The secondary bedroom stows a Murphy bed amid the built-ins. Windows face west, where several Rice University-area neighborhoods huddle beneath the tree canopy:
The unit’s other bathroom has doors to the guest bedroom and to the hallway:
Far below in the garage, 2 parking spaces are designated for this unit. The property’s other shared amenities include a pool, terrace, dry sauna, exercise room, party room, spa, service elevator, storage, and tennis court. (Up on the 28th floor, Unit 28B is significantly smaller, has no bridge cachet, and costs a good chunk less: $650,000.)
