UPPER KIRBY – GREENWAY PLAZA
High-End, Progressive Vibe. Prime Location.
If you like a progressive atmosphere with a high-end feel, look no further. Upper Kirby is at the heart of Houston’s growth, featuring an assortment of fine boutiques and restaurants including the renowned West Avenue. While other areas both inside and outside the inner loop offer a wide range of housing options and pricing, you won’t find many listings under 500K in Upper Kirby, which demonstrates the sustained property value in this area. And with Upper Kirby being just off US-59/I-69, you’ll likely have a shorter commute than most folks in Houston. If you happen to work in Greenway Plaza, your office is literally minutes away.
Not only will you be a homeowner in one of the most sought-after areas of the inner loop, but you’ll also be part of a community with an honorable history and mission. In the late 1980s, the growing area between Buffalo Speedway and Shepherd, Westheimer, and Highway 59 was a neighborhood with no name, no sense of community, and nothing to distinguish its unique character. In January 1988, property and business owners in the area came together with a focus— to identify and unify themselves. The result: The Upper Kirby District.
Since the establishment of the area, Upper Kirby residents have unified to create public programs, outreach, and education to ensure the dynamic quality of life and innovative thinking that Upper Kirby is known for today. In fact, the Levy Garden in Upper Kirby became the first in the city to offer rental plots available for growing produce and flowers. Located behind the Upper Kirby Center on Richmond Avenue, this urban nature center features a pond and wetlands, an orchard, and outdoor theatre.
