The Upper Kirby and Greenway Plaza neighborhoods are an area in transition located near the popular River Oaks neighborhood of Houston. Between the Galleria area and downtown, Upper Kirby District is immediately adjacent to Greenway Plaza, River Oaks, West University, and Montrose. The area of Kirby between Westheimer rd. and Richmond ave. is the heart of Upper Kirby surrounded by plenty of retail and restaurants off Kirby Ln., West Ave, Rice Village & Greenway Plaza. This section of Kirby has become a hotspot for retail and restaurant developments in the past couple years and has brought many new condominium projects into the area. The area is synonymous with nearby River Oaks’ lush lifestyle and the ever-increasing popularity among young professionals has driven a spike in sales of mid rises in Upper Kirby. The single family home market in Upper Kirby is scarce compared with so many multi unit projects in the works nearby. Four major real estate developments composing a majority of area real estate options have been recently completed in Upper Kirby: Alexan Upper Kirby, La Masion, Gables Upper Kirby, and the Bellemeade. Similarly, Greenway Plaza has also been known as a business district that has recently undergone development to transition to a more residential area.
