One of Houston’s most accessible neighborhoods, the Galleria’s world-class retail draws in the crowd – though that’s not all there is to it.

Located just outside the Inner Loop, the Galleria is a bustling mixed-use district. Interspersed among the area’s many hotels, shopping malls, restaurants, and offices are Galleria homes and townhomes.

Rounding up the district’s wide variety of housing options are its upscale residential highrises. Among the Houston’s best in terms of location and amenities, Galleria condos include CosmopolitanAstoriaThe Montebello, and Villa d’Este.

As one of the Bayou City’s central business districts, the Galleria/Uptown area features more than 20 million square feet of office space. The district also features more than 700 retailers, restaurants, and entertainment hubs – all within a stone’s throw away from Galleria homes for sale.

The district also features excellent access to other key Houston centers, including Downtown, the Medical Center, and the Museum District, via the Southwest Freeway, Loop 610, and the many main roads that line the area.

Galleria Houston Neighborhood Guide

Located northwest of the West Loop (Loop 610) and Highway 59 (Southwest Fwy) intersection, the Galleria/Uptown area is just outside the Inner Loop, a few miles west of Downtown Houston.

As one of Houston’s most visited districts, the Galleria sees about 35 million visitors annually. Its sprawling shopping complexes – Uptown Park and the Galleria itself – have a total of about 5 million square feet of retail space.

Galleria homes for sale don’t just enjoy being practically next to Texas’ largest shopping mall, they also have excellent access to the rest of the Greater Houston area. The district is near other Houston neighborhoods including Tanglewood, Briargrove, Afton Oaks, and River Oaks. (See our Interactive Map of Houston Neighborhoods.)

The independent cities of the Memorial Villages and Bellaire are also nearby.

The Galleria wasn’t always the popular neighborhood it is today. It was only during the late 60s that the Galleria’s development into a shopping and hotel complex started in earnest. This also bled into the district’s urban and residential development.

Today, the Galleria offers a bevy of housing options – from custom-built homes to townhomes in gated communities. The area is quite known for its upscale condominiums with luxury amenities like 24/7 security, parking, staff, private pools, tennis courts, and fitness centers.

Galleria Houston is under the 77096 Harris County zip code.
