Downtown residents  have a variety of options to call home, ranging from historical to contemporary, mid to high-rise luxury apartments and condos, and is one of the fastest growing residential neighborhoods in Houston. Downtown attracts young professionals, families, empty nesters, and those seeking proximity to their jobs, pedestrian-friendly lifestyles, and a vibrant urban neighborhood. The central location and well-developed public transit system provide easy access to top employers and businesses, quality education options and adjacent neighborhoods such as the Museum District and Texas Medical Center. And Downtown’s walkability means that residents and families are only minutes away from dining at their favorite restaurant, attending a concert or sports event, playing catch in the park or taking their dog for a walk in the park. Houston’s rich diversity of cultures and nationalities is felt no better than in Downtown, where multiculturalism is evident in the workplace, residences, cuisine offerings and learning experiences.
