Living in the heart of downtown Houston can seem a little strange to people who think of Houston and imagine miles and miles of endless neighborhoods and suburbs. However, the growing number of residential buildings in what serves as the financial heart of the city just proves that downtown has a lot to offer—if you know where to look.
Whether as a renter or a home owner, downtown Houston has plenty of options for all tastes and desires. Rental buildings include the historic Rice Hotel, brand-new Park Place, or newly-renovated Houston House Apartments. For those wishing to buy a little piece of the history for themselves, you can experience true loft living at Franklin Street Lofts or the St. Germain.
The true luxury of downtown living is the ability to park the car once home on Friday afternoon and not drive again until Monday. With dining, nightlife, art, shopping, and more available every night of the week, downtown Houston offers some saving grace to those who may feel like their commute is a killer.
The new Houston Pavilions offers fun times at House of Blues and Lucky Strike Lanes. Jaunt over to the Theatre District (which is only beat in number of seats by New York City) to catch up with the symphony, opera, ballet, and traditional theatre. Parks such as Discovery Green and the new Main Street Square Park offer tasty food and beverages, along with programming that’s fit for the whole family (Fido included). Talk a walk or bike along the bayou with the new trails, tour historic pubs with daily walking tours, and walk to your latest film release, once Sundance Cinemas opens in November of 2011.
Really and truly, downtown Houston secretly has it all- a big city feel, but a walkable distance to everything you want to do. Beat the traffic and make yourself at home- downtown Houston is the place to be!
