Considering the impressive one bedroom, two bedroom, two bedroom with den, and three bedroom floor plans at Citadel and the sophisticated amenities and elements that standardly fill each space, living in apartments in The Heights, Houston is clearly a lofty choice. When shaker-style Mikada cabinetry, pendant lighting, 10-foot ceilings, and two different interior finish packages are the expectation, a full and vibrant Downtown culture is the only acceptable compliment. Why Live near Downtown Houston? Honestly, you shouldn’t have to ask, but let’s address the depths of The Heights lifestyle.


With several shopping centers in the area, residents will never go without the essentials or indulgences, for that matter. Brookhollow Marketplace offers a T.J. Maxx, Five Below, Michaels, Old Navy, and other popular department stores. Houston Farmers Market is a retail hub, specializing in great food stalls, local vendors, and a gorgeous space to enjoy a multitude of cultural influences.


Experience the flavors of an inclusive and expressive city! Obviously, this list can’t possibly cover all the great eateries in Downtown Houston, but it never hurts to suggest a few spots to start your culinary journey. Philly Cheese Steaks at Pappa Geno’s Steak & Cheese, burgers from The Burger Joint, or fried chicken sandwiches from Mico’s Hot Chicken make great lunch options. Texas barbecue is an institution, so leave room for brisket and cobbler from Gatlin’s BBQ. For a more elite dining experience, try a dinner of wild game and seafood at the Rainbow Lodge, southern dishes from Preslee, gourmet ramen at Jinya Ramen Bar, or nouveau fare and spirits at Crisp Wine & Beer Eatery.


Little Thicket Park is only a short walk from Citadel when city dwellers need a breath of fresh air, allowing locals to tread the walking trail, spot wildlife, or picnic in the enchanting, 10.6-acre green space. Of course, T.C. Jester Park also has a playground, dog park, disc golf course, and pool to combat that hot Houston weather. Memorial Park Conservancy is the largest green space in town, and the park hosts extensive walking trails, waterways, and a golf course. Best of all, Houston is less than an hour’s drive to Galveston Island, TX, and the beloved Galveston beaches there.


With so much to do in the heart of Downtown Houston, you might need more leisure time. Join the Houston Astros baseball fandom and cheer them to victory at Minute Maid Park or see a Houston Dynamo soccer match at Shell Energy Stadium. Nature lovers might be enamored with the encyclopedic sea life, exhibits, restaurants, shops, and rides at Downtown Aquarium Houston.
