DOWNTIME

Uptown Houston is home to The Galleria, Texas's largest mall. Visitors can enjoy more than 375 stores, 2 hotels, an ice rink and a variety of restaurants sure to satisfy your taste. Not too far from the Galleria is the Williams Waterwall, a semi-circular water fountain, that flows with 11,000 gallons of water on both sides every minute.


Situated right outside the 610 loop, Uptown Houston is nearly 6 miles west of Downtown and is mostly centered along Post Oak Boulevard and Westheimer Road. At over 26 million square feet of commercial space, the Uptown district is comparable in size to the downtowns of Denver and Pittsburgh. Development increased in the 1960s, and by 1987, the area had more hotel rooms and retail shopping centers than Downtown Houston. Soaring business towers and extravagant high-rises designed by renowned architects blend with high-end boutiques, making for a setting that is nothing less than fabulous. It is a unique urban environment ideal for international business professionals, fashionistas, tourists and city dwellers from around the world come together for the best that Houston has to offer.

Uptown Houston is flanked by the world-famous  Galleria, an upscale mixed-used development that spans 2.4 million square feet and consists of more than 375 stores, 30 restaurants, two hotels and a full-size ice rink. As the largest shopping center in Texas, the Galleria is a must-see destination for internationals and hosts more than 30 million visitors each year. Opened in 1970, the Galleria got its name from the building that inspired its architectural design – Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. The attraction is anchored by Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Dillard’s, but it is also home to a list of designers such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Versace and Jimmy Choo. Outside the Galleria, shoppers in Uptown have access to an assortment of options including the BLVD Place, Centre at Post Oak and Post Oak Shopping Center.

Uptown Houston is booming with commercial space. Hosting headquarters to some of the most well-known energy, financial and professional service companies around the world, this district defines success. Due to its convenient location, beautiful environment and wide variety of business amenities, companies continue to look to Uptown for work and play. The highest achievement of Uptown was the construction of the 901-foot-tall Williams Tower, designed by Philip Johnson. It rises 64 stories and has become an icon in the city. It represents an era in which energy companies sought impressive, beautiful, monumental structures as a way to broadcast their immense power.

Sitting at the south end of Williams Tower is the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park, Houston’s most photographed site. This dramatic 64-foot fountain provides a popular backdrop for tourists and locals alike, pumps 78,500 gallons of recycled water every three hours and is shaded by hundreds of live oaks trees. The three-acre area also provides plenty of greenspace to host families out for a stroll.

Living in Uptown provides a feeling that is calm and intimate, yet elegant and lively. It is refined yet relaxed; contemporary yet traditional. The area is home to posh residential condo buildings like the Cosmopolitan, Astoria, and Villa d’Este. These high-rises provide privacy and luxury amenities such as tennis courts, saunas, roof top decks, guards and private elevator entrances. Lying just minutes from Uptown is Tanglewood, a quiet neighborhood of tree-lined streets and grand homes on large lots. The real estate in this area is a charming mix or architectural masterpieces, from Mediterranean estates to modern and traditional styles. There is a lifestyle for everyone that calls Uptown home.
