The East Montrose neighborhood sits within the general Montrose area, central to Houston Texas. Originally established in 1911, it was planned as one of the more pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in Houston. Montrose maintains its independent spirit even as it has grown over the years.
The residents are as varied as the architecture. Here you can find a style to meet your taste, whether an original bungalow, remodel, a new four story townhouse or mansion, stately historic home or even a live/work building. The community exemplifies an independent spirit by being developed privately through individuals rather than as a reflection of public government policies.
East Montrose neighborhood is a demographically diverse community with a vibrant street life, access to the Museum District, a variety of restaurants, festivals, artists, musicians, shopping, and the Medical Center. All of which are accessible via light rail, bus or walking.
In 2009 Montrose was honored to be named by the American Planning Association as one of the country's 10 great neighborhoods.
