Upscale Living and Shopping Just Outside the Inner Loop.
The Galleria area, also known as the Uptown District, offers residents access to everything: upscale stores, top-rated restaurants, and real estate options ranging from new and renovated million dollar homes to competitively-priced townhomes and high-rise condominiums. Aside from the activity and vibrancy of living right next to Houston’s most well-known shopping center, Galleria area residents also enjoy its prime location, less than seven miles away from many other distinguished areas in Houston including Upper Kirby, Rice Village, Montrose, the Museum District, the Medical Center, and River Oaks. The Galleria area sits just southwest of Houston’s inner loop with immediate access to Westheimer Rd, I-610 and US 59/I-69. It is also home to major employers in the banking and energy industries and marked by a collection of mid-rise office buildings, including the iconic 901-foot-tall Williams Tower.
What’s There to Do in the Galleria?
Living just seconds away from the largest mall in Texas, The Galleria, you’ll have prime access to an international shopping destination bustling with more than 24 million visitors annually. The mall alone features 30 restaurants, two hotels, a full-sized ice skating rink, and world-class shopping with a who’s who list of designers including Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Chanel, Jimmy Choo, and Ralph Lauren, among many others. A range of restaurants to suit every taste can be found in the area—from steakhouses and dumpling bars in the mall to international restaurants and cafes down Westheimer Rd.
The immediate area itself is dense with commercial amenities including theaters and other indoor entertainment venues. For outdoor activity, take the kids to Grady Park for some playground time. If you’re looking for a dog park, Tanglewood Park is not too far away. And because the Galleria is in the heart of Houston’s main attractions, you’ll only be minutes away from other major parks and museums.
