Uptown is the location in Houston for people to live their best life. It’s the center of economic and career opportunity for everything, from groundbreaking restaurants, to individual boutiques, to upstart businesses, to Fortune 500 corporations.
Home to some of the most prominent energy, financial, real estate and professional services companies in the world, Uptown is an address that defines success. 28 million square feet of commercial office space makes Uptown one of the nation’s largest business districts. Its central location lies just minutes away from Houston’s largest convention centers, other major business districts, the Texas Medical Center and major sports arenas.
In the spring of 2020, the newly transformed Post Oak Boulevard will feature a new regional transit service, METRO-Rapid. This new service will allow Uptown employees that live in northwest, west and southwest Houston to utilize their neighborhood park and ride lots and board METRO-Rapid to work.
Residential offerings in Uptown suit the needs of senior executives and young professionals alike. As Houston’s first designated scenic district, Uptown’s high quality of life is evident in its growing number of pocket parks and the enhanced walkability and beautification of the pedestrian spaces throughout the area.
Nowhere else does Houston offer such a fertile environment for growth, for the full range of Houston businesses and residents. This is where young people build careers. It is where experienced professionals find their next great step forward.
