Welcome to Midtown

Encompassing parts of Houston’s historic Third and Fourth Wards, Midtown has a rich background and mix of residential and commercial property. During the 1950s, the area began a slow decline as less commercially-heavy districts became popular with Houstonians. Successful redevelopment efforts in the area began in the 1990s, leading to what is now one of Houston’s highest concentrations of residences, restaurants, retail, and public space. Popular with all ages, Midtown is well-known for attracting young professionals due to its proximity to Downtown and popular restaurants and bars. Common types of homes in the area are townhomes and condominiums, while historic homes remain and add depth to the property market.
With bus and light rail connections easily accessible throughout the neighborhood, Midtown has experienced solid and stable growth for residents and investors in the area. Boasting some of Houston’s newest parks and public spaces, Midtown is truly a multi-generational community that attracts a mix of residents who value its amenities, proximity to all parts of the city, and pedestrian-oriented planning.
