Welcome to Uptown

Uptown is the ultimate urban lifestyle that showcases the best of Houston on a grand scale. It is one of Houston’s key economic engines and has evolved from near rural conditions in the 1960’s into one of the nation’s premier mixed-use urban centers.

This dynamic interchange of traffic, transit, pedestrians, and commerce conveys energy and convenience. Uptown is common ground for all to share and enjoy, for all to feel safe and respected, a place that elicits the best of human kindness and prosperity.
