City Life with a Family-Friendly Twist Inside the Loop

The Texas Medical Center is not only the largest medical center in the world, it is one of the most desirable places to live in Houston. Its central location, proximity to the 610 loop and US-59/I-69, and accessibility to many of Houston’s main attractions mean there’s always something new to experience. Residents in this area range from families living in renovated historical homes and bungalows to single, young professionals enjoying a more metropolitan lifestyle in lofts and high-rise condos. High-rise condos in the area offer breathtaking views of the Medical Center and Hermann Park along with modern day conveniences like swimming pools, gyms and valet service. Newly constructed condos and townhomes found closer to the Museum District are designed with a contemporary flair to complement the museums in the area.
