Uptown and the Galleria area of Houston is one of the premier business and shopping districts in Houston. People from all over the world flock to the Galleria for upscale luxury shopping and award winning restaurants. Although, Uptown is mostly known for residential, high rise developments like The Lofts on Post Oak, the Mercer, and the Mark, there are several pockets of single family and townhome options that are little closer to the ground. For instance, Lamar Terrace and St George Place offer a more suburban-like single family home option with the added walkability and luxury to Galleria’s most luxurious shops and eateries. If you are looking for something a little closer to the ground without the maintenance of the larger lots of Lamar Terrace and St. George, developments in Briar Hollow might be an option as well.
