The dynamics of Downtown Houston have changed considerably since 1998, thanks to major new developments and the restoration and revitalization of older buildings into residential properties, entertainment venues and imaginative workspaces.
Downtown Houston real estate offers a wide variety of lifestyle options with loft and traditional high-rise condominium residences for purchase or lease. Developers have restored or converted older, historic buildings that include the Bayou Lofts, Capitol Lofts, Commerce Towers, Franklin Lofts, Hermann Lofts, Keystone Lofts, Kirby Lofts, St. Germain, and San Jacinto Lofts Downtown. On the popular East Side, an area formerly occupied by warehouses, developers have converted existing buildings to residential properties, such as Live Oak Lofts or built new structures such as The Stanford and Lofts at The Ballpark.
The location and simplicity of Downtown high-rise and loft living is a favorite choice for urban professionals, empty nesters, traveling families, reverse commuters and executives searching for the security, low-maintenance, and uncomplicated existence that it offers.
Houston’s vibrant Theater District, a 17-block area in the heart of Downtown, is the largest theater district in the country outside of New York. The area is home to eight world-class performing arts organizations, as well as a 130,000 square-foot entertainment complex, Bayou Place, boasting a concert hall, restaurants, movies, plazas and parks.
Downtown also includes a number of chic new hotels; sports and entertainment centers, Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center; over 200 restaurants and clubs; shopping and entertainment; the fabulous and extremely popular urban parks, Market Square Park and Discovery Green; and the George R. Brown Convention Center.
