Most people have heard of the Heights, Montrose, River Oaks, Downtown, West U, Bellaire, Southampton, or the Medical Center. But how many people have heard of Rice Military, the cozy area located right next to Memorial Park's east end with everything from traditional to modern townhomes, or Garden Oaks, which has been quietly growing off the success of the nearby Heights for years?
Many areas that haven't seen development in decades are poised to become the next hot spots, such as Southmore or the Binz district, located due north of Hermann Park, which has seen new townhome construction in recent years and is right next to the Museum District. Just north along the same corridor is a hip urban district reaching its fruition: aptly-named Midtown, with lofts, apartments and townhomes so close to downtown that it almost feels like one is standing north of Midtown Manhattan. This bustling new district is sure to redefine what it means to live in Houston. Even I was amazed when I started to learn about the new Houston real estate landscape, which is due to transform Houston in coming years into a totally new kind of city.
