Welcome to Galleria
An upscale community close to Downtown Houston
West of 610, north of Highway 59, south of Woodway, and east of Voss Road, Galleria is a feather in the cap of Houston’s glitzy urban living. Characterized by stunning high rises throughout the neighborhood, an iconic mall, and an elegant, diverse community, Galleria appeals to many young professionals.
In the mid-1900s, Galleria — also called Uptown — was known for empty streets and being lonely and unlit. It wasn’t until the 1960s, when the area began development under Gerald D. Hines, that the community started to prosper. When the Galleria Mall was built in the late 1980s, Galleria became cemented as Houston’s destination for urban, upscale living.
Today, Galleria is a trendy locale with great commutes dotted by gorgeous, luxury high-rise apartments and condominiums, complete with amenities and staff. Real estate here fits every need. From patio homes to chic townhomes in gated communities, as well as new construction homes built perfectly suited to your taste, Galleria housing offers many lifestyle choices. Enchanted by glamorous living situations, a central location, and sophisticated neighbors, residents are proud to call Galleria home.

People and Lifestyle
Galleria thrums with the electricity of urban living and a central location. Replete with young professionals from all walks of life, the area is known for posh lifestyles and a trendy atmosphere. Many residents take advantage of the quick commutes and proximity to business districts such as the Energy Corridor — or even the mixed-use neighborhood of Galleria itself, as it is one of the United State’s biggest top 20 business districts.
Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment
While one of Galleria’s draws is its truly great central location, the wealth of retail and restaurants right in the neighborhood makes it easy to find all your day-to-day needs and activities without going far from home.
More than a mall, The Galleria is a huge, climate-controlled oasis of retail and sophisticated shopping. The Galleria is home to over 400 stores and restaurants, as well as three office tours, two high-rise Westin Hotels, swimming pools, banks, and even an ice skating rink. Another prime destination nestled in the heart of Galleria, Uptown Park Shopping Center is perfect for those seeking both artisan and contemporary designers.
Extend your day at the Galleria by making a reservation for the stunning and chic Oceanaire Seafood Room or the fine dining experience of the delicious Fogo de Chao Brazilian steakhouse. North Italia is yet another top option, as it offers high-class Italian food paired with a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Things to Do
Galleria is overflowing with great shopping and dining, as well as a wealth of activity. From verdant nature to upscale entertainment, Galleria is abundant with choices.
Plan for a night at The Rustic to enjoy the great company of friends while having a refreshing beverage and listening to incredible live performances from acclaimed musicians. The central location allows for no end of local and regional festivals such as the Chevron Houston Marathon, the largest single sporting day in Houston annually, or the nearby Bayou City Art Festival.
When it comes to year-round entertainment, look no further than Galleria’s great natural spaces, which are even more enticing when you consider the urban locale of the neighborhood. Visit Memorial Park, Houston’s largest urban park. From food trucks to mountain biking to playgrounds, the park offers something for everyone.
