The district enjoys a central location near other Inner Loop neighborhoods, including Montrose, EaDo, and the Medical Center.

Featuring a slew of dining, shopping, and nightlife options, Midtown is also one of the most accessible neighborhoods in Houston.

Midtown homes for sale are near entertainment and commercial establishments. Both Downtown Houston and the Medical Center are just minutes away.

The average price per square foot has increased by 40% over the past decade. Despite the strong real estate appreciation, Midtown still offers some of the most affordable homes located near Downtown.

New construction townhomes are very common in the neighborhood. With new urban developments and recent school zoning changes, homebuyers will greatly benefit from seeking the advice of a good Midtown Houston realtor.

Midtown Houston Neighborhood Guide

Midtown’s central location within the Inner Loop provides almost immediate access to Downtown Houston, the Medical Center, and the Museum District.

The district is south of Gulf Fwy, west of South Fwy, and north of Southwest Fwy. The MetroRAIL Red Line bisects Midtown with three stops: Wheeler, Ensemble/HCC, and McGowen.

During the 40s, Midtown was a very popular residential district due in large part to the Humble Oil and Refining Company. Commercial establishments flocked to Midtown, which caused some residents to move to quieter Houston neighborhoods.

Vietnamese immigrants and Vietnamese Americans were responsible for Midtown’s first redevelopment in the 1970s. They established “Little Saigon” in the district.

The 1980s oil glut hit Houston hard, and Midtown was one of the neighborhoods to see a decrease in population during the period.

Redevelopment in Midtown officially started in 1995, after the city of Houston established the Midtown Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ). Funds from the TIRZ helped push the district toward its current redevelopment. The Midtown Management District was formed four years later.

The Midtown of today is still evolving, as more residential and commercial developments are headed for the 617-acre district.
