Yet with over 270 restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops — one wouldn’t mind driving 5 minutes along the pleasing views of Buffalo Bayou to experience the best of Houston.
The Memorial Houston Real Estate market has experienced a resurgence in the past couple of years due to the trend of tearing down older properties to make way for new constructions. Outdated properties are replaced by luxury townhomes and condominiums, mixed-use developments, and businesses.
