Downtown Houston Apartment Near Discovery Green

May 1st, 2019

Our location at 500 Crawford simply can’t be beat. We are directly across the street from Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros (in fact, many of our apartments have stunning views looking directly into the ballpark), and have two award winning on-site restaurants on the first floor. We have a walking score of 97 (out of 100), which means you’ve got so much surrounding you, it’s hard to decide what to do next.

Our Houston luxury apartments offer close proximity to shopping, sports (we are walking distance from the Astros, Rockets and Dynamo), diverse dining options, entertainment, and more, like walkable access to Discovery Green. One of Houston’s premier green spaces, this 12-acre park has hosted more than 13.5 million visitors since it opened in 2008.
