Real Estate in Houston's Washington Corridor

The western half of Washington Corridor has a high density of residential buildings, including 3-4 story townhomes, 3-story detached homes, and 2-story rowhouses. There is also an area of luxury detached homes west of Westcott Street.

The Corridor's eastern half is more mixed use. Here, warehouse spaces stand side by side with empty lots, vintage bungalows, and new townhome developments. A small suburban pocket resides south of Washington Avenue, between Sawyer Street and Houston Avenue.

The narrow homes in 3 story configurations offer large floor space with a limited footprint. As such, interiors are open and spacious, when full gourmet kitchens and luxury 5-piece bathrooms.

Smaller townhomes offer excellent opportunities for first time buyers, or those looking for a rental property. And many of the lots, even those occupied by older homes, present outstanding value for investors and developers.

Many of the newer buildings are completed in contemporary box-modern styles, with sleek faces, cool and understated surfaces, and stylish layouts. Some buildings have also been finished in traditional neo-Italianate. In most cases, these buildings offer rooftop access for taking in the beautiful views of this area.

Average square footage is almost 2500, meaning that within this fashionable and accessible area, you'll be able to find enough space to suit your wants and needs.

The more up-market complexes and condos will come complete with exercise centers, pools, and entertainment areas. However, if you live anywhere else, you won't want for exercise or entertainment opportunities either, as Memorial Park and Buffalo Buyer provide miles of trails and greenspace.
