Guide To Luxury East Downtown Real Estate
EaDo is one of the fastest growing districts in the Inner Loop.
EaDo owes its name to its location east of Downtown Houston. Formerly known as Old Chinatown, EaDo is in the midst of a reinvention as a trendy neighborhood, the “Art & Soul of the City.”
EaDo is a great option for homebuyers due to its:
- Great accessibility: EaDo is one of the most accessible neighborhoods in Houston due to its proximity to Downtown and Texas Medical Center.
- Recreational spots: EaDo is home to the new BBVA Compass Stadium. It is also next to the George R. Brown Convention Center, Discovery Green, the Toyota Center, and Minute Maid Park.
- Competitive housing options: Due to the current redevelopment in the district, real estate is more affordable compared to properties in other Inner Loop neighborhoods.
- Investment opportunities: Regarded as one of the fastest growing districts in Houston, EaDo presents great investment opportunities. Commercial development in the area has inspired a housing boom.
EaDo is experiencing a revitalization in both retail and housing sectors. However, there is uneven development and changes in school zoning in the area. Homebuyers will want to get in touch with a reliable EaDo Houston realtor for in-depth and updated information about the district.

EaDo Luxury Real Estate: Neighborhood Guide
EaDo is a district right next to Downtown Houston. It was formerly known as Old Chinatown, and since the district was largely industrial, it was once called the Warehouse District as well.
Located next to the George R. Brown Convention Center, East End, and the Third Ward, EaDo sits along stretches of Gulf and Eastex freeways. The Union Pacific rail line, running from Commerce to Cullen, defines the district’s borders on the east.
Back in the 1950s, a community of East Asian immigrants made East Downtown their home. After they moved their businesses to the current Chinatown in the 1990s, the area was left with abandoned warehouses and boarded up buildings.
Growing interest in the area is due in part to recent developments like the BBVA Compass Center. The rise of property taxes and lack of housing in Houston also played a role in EaDo’s transformation.
With the construction of more retail and mixed-use spaces attracting more people into the district, property developers have turned their attention to East Downtown. Among the many construction sites in the district are for new townhouses, single-family homes, and mid-rise condos.
The district officially got its new nickname in 2008, and EaDo perfectly captures the hip and trendy vibe that the district grown to assume.
Neighborhoods near EaDo Houston include: Downtown Houston, Second Ward, Third Ward, East End, Fifth Ward, Greater Heights, Northside Village, Magnolia Park, Rice Military, River Oaks, Midtown, and Montrose.
