Montrose Houston Neighborhood Guide

montrose homesMontrose is a 250-acre district located in central Houston. Its boundaries are defined as Allen Parkway on the north, Spur 527 and Bagby Street to the east, Southwest Freeway (US Highway 59) on the south, and Shepherd Street on the west.

Montrose prides itself for the artistic, Bohemian vibe that shows in both its residential and commercial establishments.

The neighborhood features a quirky mix of patio bars, wine lounges, fine dining restaurants, hole-in-the-walls, dive bars, coffee shops, and ice houses. Its retail stores are equally eclectic, with a number of second-hand and thrift shops, antique stores, and upscale boutiques.

River Oaks Shopping Center is within the neighborhood. Should one find the district’s retail offerings lacking, The Galleria is but a short drive away.

True to its artsy vibe, Montrose houses the Menil Collection and the Rothko Chapel. It also has smaller art galleries in and around the district.

Back in 1911, J.W. Link developed Montrose from 250 acres of land. He had originally envisioned it as a master planned upscale neighborhood. It was one of Houston’s first streetcar suburbs.

A real estate boom in the 1990s inspired a renewal of the district, and many townhomes and mid-rise condos were developed during this period. Many single-family homes, mostly patio homes and bungalows, were renovated.

The housing boom is still ongoing, with more developments slated for Montrose.

Montrose is under the 77006 zip code of Harris County.

Neighborhoods near Montrose include Downtown Houston, Upper Kirby, River Oaks, Rice Military, Museum District, Midtown, EaDo, and Medical Center.
