About Greenway Plaza
The growth spurred by new development has made Greenway Plaza and surrounding areas a force to be reckoned with in the enclave of Houston neighborhoods around Upper Kirby. Just five miles away from Downtown Houston, you can be quickly surrounded by excellent restaurants and fine boutiques after s short drive from the luxury apartment properties in the neighborhood. In fact, the Greenway Plaza skyline is an impressive view of Downtown Houston. The region, itself, is well-known for the pedestrian-conscious walkways, bridges and tunnels that connect different parts of the residential-business-commercial complex that is central to the plaza.
Because of the proximity of the Houston professional scene, you’ll frequently interact with motivated and well-to-do young professionals in any of the numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants. It shares these meeting grounds with Upper Kirby, with the Oporto Café, Tony’s restaurant and Kirby’s Downing Street Pub being the more-visited locales. Edwards Greenway Grand Palace Stadium is between Edloe St and Wesleyan St., and is frequented by Rice University students because of its proximity. The newest movies are always playing there, and it represents a great outing for the family.
