EaDo | UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON

Walkable, Affordable Inner Loop Living on the Metro Line

Short for East Downtown, EaDo is a triangular section of town that sits immediately east and south of Downtown Houston, bordered by I-45 to the southwest and US-59/I-69 to the northwest. A symbol of mastery in urban revitalization, EaDo is quickly becoming one of Houston’s most up-and-coming places to live, particularly for home buyers seeking a walkable and affordable lifestyle. Just south of EaDo and I-45 is the University Area where you’ll find the internationally accredited University of Houston noted for its diversity and solid reputation amongst local employers.

EaDo was known historically as Houston’s 2nd Ward and is still sometimes called that name by the locals. Together they represent a microcosm of modern-day Houston, with a harmonious intersection of various cultures and home styles. In addition to one-of-a-kind ethnic markets, international festivals, exotic cuisine, and unique art galleries, EaDo also showcases a diverse offering of real estate options— from modern, vintage, and industrial-chic to new patio homes and gated townhome neighborhoods. For buyers looking for convenience and access, many of the newer homes in EaDo were built near parks, green spaces, and along the MetroRail line, making it an easy commute to popular destinations like Downtown Houston, the Museum District, the Medical Center, Texas Southern University, and University of Houston. And because you’re in close proximity to two major highways, you can easily get around to enjoy other parts of the city.

With some of downtown Houston’s most well-known landmarks in walking distance, living in EaDo is true urban living. Stroll down to Discovery Green for the evening flea market or root for Houston’s soccer teams at the BBVA/Compass Stadium. For some outdoor play, EaDo has a few local parks to enjoy including Tony Marron Park and EaDog Park, where your dogs can run freely while you enjoy a beautiful view of the Houston skyline. And when your feet get tired, you can always hop on the MetroRail Line to explore Downtown or other parts of Houston.

For a slower pace, you can schedule a round of golf right in your own neighborhood at the Gus Wortham Golf Course, the oldest 18-hole golf course in Texas and the site of the original Houston Country Club. Who knew you can find so much to do in this small pocket of town?
