What are you into? Clothes? Antiques? Live entertainment? Dining out? Farmers markets? Old fashioned phone booths? Well, then, welcome to the neighborhood! This mixed-use area has been masterfully designed and redeveloped into a unique microcosm – a little pocket of comfort and joy in the midst of the metropolis. It’s a quirky combo of purpose and personality.
PERFECT FOR: Someone who wants it all at their fingertips – retail and restaurants and groceries, oh my! – and appreciates being able to walk there.
PERKS & QUIRKS: Kirby Ice House. The Armadillo Palace. Red phone booths (UK-style) are randomly peppered throughout. A multi-million dollar infrastructure redevelopment is underway to improve walkability. Most of the commercial buildings in Greenway Plaza are connected by climate-controlled tunnels or walkways.
FUN FACT: This is where you can find Joel Olsteen’s mega-church, which for size reference, used to be home to the Houston Rockets.
