Looking for Downtown Houston apartments in Houston?
Houston is the fourth most populous city in the country, trailing only the big names like New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
Located in the heart of Harris County, downtown Houston is easily accessible from all of surrounding suburbs. Half of Houston commuters take recently improved highways US 59, I-45, or I-10 to access the downtown area, while a smaller percentage of people use the various modes of public transportation: light rail, busses, and park-and-ride stations are available for commuters trying to find alternative types of transportation. And in Houston, with an ever-expanding population of 2,257,926, transportation is everything.
Houston has put $4 billion towards rejuvenating its downtown area with residences, businesses, and parks. Literally a fastball away from the Astro's baseball stadium are the Lofts at the Ballpark, with elevated walkways, mirrored weight rooms, and a movie theater with stadium seating. Or the ultra-glam One Park Place, with gourmet kitchens, high-rise views, and 24-hour concierge service.
The Houston Pavilions, opened in 2008, is a self-proclaimed entertainment center that spans three city blocks, with 300,000 square feet of retail space, 260,000 square feet of office space, and a 1,600-space parking garage. Here visitors can shop at major retail hubs, dine at intimate restaurants, and venues like the House of Blues and Pete's Dueling Piano Bar. A few blocks to the southeast is Discovery Green, a 12-acre park created to aid in the downtown's rebirth and act as an anchor to future development projects.
