The Advantages of Upper Kirby
Located between River Oaks and West University – two of Houston’s most exclusive neighborhoods – Upper Kirby is distinguished by its red British phone booths and a combination of older, tree-lined streets, trendy apartment complexes and multi-million dollar homes and high-rises. Proximity to other affluent residential communities, including Afton Oaks Midtown, Montrose/Neartown and the Museum District, is also a benefit.
Access and Interest
The Upper Kirby District defines itself as a “network of historic neighborhoods mingling hand-in-hand with new urban/mixed-use developments and major economic centers nestled just minutes from Downtown Houston, the Galleria and the Texas Medical Center, and immediately adjacent to Greenway Plaza.” What a wonderful place to live and work!
Social Sensibility and a Dog Park
Upper Kirby is known for its friendly residents and urban living at its finest. The District has it’s own Facebook page, which describes a fantastic nightlife scene anchored by the “West Ave” multi-purpose development. Another “cool factor” is the bustling mix of restaurants and array of boutiques.
Residents also enjoy Levy Park (operated by the City of Houston) which is tucked away on a cul-de-sac in the Upper Kirby District and includes a fenced dog park and softball field near Greenway Plaza.
