Now is the time. Houston is the place.
These are exciting times for Houston. The fourth largest city in the country and growing, Houston has a broad business base in energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation. Only New York City can claim more large public companies. The city is home to the world’s largest concentration of health care and research institutions, ranks third in the U.S. for scheduled non-stop, domestic and international air service, and is the site of NASA’s Johnson Space Center, where Mission Control is located.

The Heartbeat of Houston Begins with the Bayou.
Long before the shining rise of Houston and Texas, natural springs and tributaries flowed through Buffalo Bayou on the way to the Gulf. Today, the bayou buzzes with new Houston energy. Waterside trails provide a natural getaway, recreation space, and outdoor venue for art and music—right in the heart of the nation’s fourth-largest city. The prized recreational and natural spaces of Buffalo Bayou Park and Memorial Park get better and greener every season.
Healthy, Connected, and Elegantly Designed
From Washington Avenue to Memorial Drive, Buffalo Heights spans 32 prime acres in the heart of Houston. Residents can step outside and work, shop and play here—five minutes from Downtown and two miles from River Oaks. The sparkling, new H-E-B is just the start. Getting to favorite shops and restaurants, or out to any part of the city is easy. In this refreshed, green core of Houston, upscale urban living is re-imagined and built anew—healthy, connected and elegantly designed.
