Uptown Defined

Uptown skyline

Uptown Houston is the very heart of a city that pulses with the energy of its diverse residents and visitors.

Nestled alongside Memorial Park and flanked by the world-famous Galleria, Uptown Houston is our boardroom, our playground, our sanctuary, and our home. It is a unique urban environment where international business professionals, fashionistas, city dwellers and tourists from around the globe all converge for life’s amazing moments, and so much more than the daily 9 to 5.

Soaring business towers boasting more than 24.4 million square feet of commercial office space, and elegant high rise residences designed by renowned architects intermingle with high-end boutiques in a compact and accessible enclave, making for a setting that is nothing less than spectacular.

Buzzing with corporate leaders, fashion-savvy shoppers and residents who enjoy the finer things, Uptown Houston offers the finest of lifestyles to meet those needs.  Each day, more than 200,000 people converge in Uptown Houston to work in our prestigious office buildings, stay in our more than 7,100 well appointed hotel rooms, dine in our magnificent restaurants and shop in our acclaimed stores.

Bustling with exciting growth and vitality, this urban center is now poised for even greater renown on the world stage. Accessibility to and from Uptown continues to be improved on every level. New green spaces and parks that enhance the area’s garden district feel are being created.  And everywhere…opportunity abounds.
