Neighborhoods Uptown Houston

Uptown Houston

Houston’s Uptown district, the Galleria/Post Oak area, has been called Houston’s Urban Village. As Houston has grown to become the nation’s fourth largest city, it has developed a unique urban environment outside of downtown, yet centrally located. This area weaves a thriving business district, acclaimed retail stores, luxury hotels, condominium and apartment towers, and prestigious residential neighborhoods with Houston’s natural beauty into a vibrant community known as Uptown.

Boasting some of Houston’s most exclusive neighborhoods, such as Broad Oaks, Pine Shadows, Indian Trail, and Pine Hollow, the Uptown District also features prestigious townhome developments such as Indian Circle, Post Oak Timbers, and Sage on the Bayou, as well as patio home communities such as Arborway, Indian Bayou, West Oaks, and Homewood. The stately high-rise, Four Leaf Towers, completes the Uptown District landscape.

Uptown’s high-rise offices and hotels, fine restaurants, and retail centers (such as the world-famous Galleria) host 200,000 office workers, shoppers, and out-of-town visitors daily. Yet this scene of bustling commercial activity is laced with tranquil lanes leading to magnificent homes, the majestic Post Oak Boulevard with its verdantly landscaped public spaces, and the pristine natural forest of Memorial Park. Brimming with downtown intensity, but softened with a sophisticated graciousness, Uptown set its own high standards as a neighborhood, urban activity center, and focus for national and international business.

Already enveloped by Houston’s most prestigious residential districts, Uptown is itself a growing neighborhood with continued construction of a wide variety of upscale homes and apartments. The Uptown lifestyle appeals to active adults and families looking for suburban comfort and security in an energetic urban setting. No other Houston neighborhood offers such a complete mix of housing styles and amenities.

And residential construction is still continuing. Since 1992, approximately 600 new single family homes and townhomes have received building permits in Uptown, representing 6.5 percent of the total single-family permits in Houston.

Those desiring an Uptown address have a wide variety of housing types from which to choose. Young adults are attracted to upscale, multi-story complexes. Over 1,700 high-rise condominium units are located in Uptown; this represents over half of all high-rise units in Houston.

For those seeking a single-family home, intimate patio homes, constructed on limited access courts, offer a cozy and secure urban retreat while luxury subdivisions feature in-town estates with some of Houston’s most prestigious addresses. Uptown is a neighborhood designed to meet any home seeker’s desires.
