The Heights is more than a community; it’s a lifestyle. With an eclectic mixture of history and culture, this neighborhood offers the highest concentration of registered historic buildings in Houston as well as the highest concentration of professional artists in Texas. Dating back to the 1890s, The Heights is Houston’s oldest planned community as evident in the well-preserved Victorian homes and classic bungalows scattered throughout the tree-canopied esplanades. Today, the area flourishes as a creative enclave with diverse and character-filled architecture. New construction homes reflect the unique mixture of the residents’ eclectic styles and serves as a major draw for architecture buffs.
As one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Houston, residents are privy to world-class dining, quirky mom and pop shops, and abundant arts and culture spaces and events. The community also benefits from a focus on the outdoors, with numerous pedestrian-friendly spaces including the Heights Hike and Bike Trail and several expansive parks and greenspaces.
