It’s not hard to imagine that one of the finest selling points about living at 2900 West Dallas is the ideal location, close to so much that Houston has to offer. 2900 West Dallas is located in one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Houston, close to parks, gourmet grocery stores, boutique shopping, award-winning restaurants and lively Houston nightlight spots. We offer a much more elevated and grand lifestyle at these Houston luxury apartments, where convenience and livability is key.

Houston Luxury Apartments Steps from Buffalo Bayou Park

We love being so close to downtown Houston, and are quite fond of living only a few steps from the revitalized Buffalo Bayou Park, which is considered one of the country’s great urban green spaces. Buffalo Bayou Park is 160-acres of outdoor fun, offering audio, walking, boat and cistern tours. The park stretches from Shepherd Drive to Sabine Street and has become a fit-friendly spot for Houstonians, thanks to the picturesque downtown skyline views. Some of Houstonians favorite activities at the park include running the stairs to burn major calories and touring the brand-new Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern, Wednesday – Sunday (with advanced ticket purchases).

According to the Buffalo Bayou Partnership website, “Recognizing the historical and architectural significance of the highly unusual space [Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern], Buffalo Bayou Partnership with the City of Houston worked to take over development and maintenance of the space,” and created a truly must-see public art piece.

When it isn’t too hot, our residents take full advantage of all the fun things going on at Buffalo Bayou Park (a quick walk across Memorial Drive), especially the running trails where you can walk, bike or take your dog for a walk throughout one of Houston’s most beautiful green spaces.

Other things to check out at Buffalo Bayou Park are The Lee & Joe Jamail Skatepark, which is a free and open-to-the-public 30,000-square-foot-in-ground facility; Johnny Steele Dog Park, a two-acre bark park near Allen Parkway and Montrose Boulevard that features a pond, shade structures, drinking fountains and more; and of course, the Waugh Bridge Bat Colony where more than 250,000 Mexican free-tailed bats emerge in dramatic fashion every night at sunset. Yes, Houston also has a bridge with flying bats; it’s not just an Austin thing!

The walkability and location of these Houston luxury apartments is a top selling point because residents love being able to walk right over to Buffalo Bayou and all it offers, never having to worry about dreaded Houston parking. It’s perfect for an afternoon stroll with family or your dog, a great meeting spot to catch up with friends, or an ideal location for putting on your favorite podcast or playlist and enjoying some much-needed alone time.

Conveniently Located Next Door to Whole Foods

If getting in the car and making a big grocery run seems overwhelming, you’re in luck because these Montrose luxury apartments are conveniently located next door to Whole Foods Market Montrose. Located at the intersection of Waugh Drive and West Dallas just south of Allen Parkway, 2900 West Dallas residents get the benefits of having all that Whole Foods offers, including a diverse beer and wine selection, bakery, floral department, seafood, pet section, a bar and even concierge services. This Whole Foods is one of the busiest and liveliest in Houston, offering unique events and a terrific place to gather with friends over coffee or a glass of wine. They even have an event calendar you can check out (make sure you are viewing the correct store, since there are a few in Houston) to plan your weeknights and dinner plans around or take advantage of a sunny day on their lawn.

Another Nearby Park Within Two Miles

If all the events and activities at Buffalo Bayou aren’t enough, these Montrose apartments are located two miles from Discovery Green, which is currently celebrating its 10th year. With various special events throughout the year (like movies on the lawn, an ice skating rink during winter and roller rink in the spring, unique art installations and complimentary yoga) and two restaurants on-site, there’s always something to do at Discovery Green. Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect date night or a family-friendly outing, you’ll find that and more at this vibrant 12-acre downtown Houston park.

Play a Pick-up Game at Spotts Park

Between Waugh and Memorial, you’ll find another Houston favorite in Spotts Park. Connected to pretty much everything and within easy walking distance from our luxury apartments in Montrose, here you’ll find volleyball and basketball courts, along with a kid’s playground, where locals and visitors alike can bask in the warmth of a beautiful Houston day.

Diner’s Paradise in Houston

Another great feature of these Houston luxury apartments is all the amazing restaurants nearby. Less than a mile away you’ll find some of the city’s most popular spots like Nino’s for traditional Italian, Vincent’s for authentic Italian and Tony Mandolas Gulf Coast Kitchen, to name a few.

Enjoy one of Houston’s newer American cuisine spots offering an expansive wine list, handcrafted cocktails and European flair, Emmaline, just one block away. The Kitchen at Dunlavy is also within minutes of these Houston luxury apartments, offering an order-at-the-counter, boast-worthy breakfast, brunch and lunch as well as occasional special events in their stunning dining space and prime Houston location.

On Taft, one block off West Dallas, you’ll find The Pass & Provisions, which was a Houston Landmark building for years and now offers five- or eight-course meals for the real foodies out there. You’ll find one of the best açaí bowls in Houston at Nourish Juice Bar a few blocks away, which has quickly become a resident favorite before or after a long run at one of the nearby parks (be sure to check out their Good Vibes Only floor sign to snap the perfect shoe selfie). Whether you’re looking for authentic food trucks, fine dining, girl’s night out spots or something else, you’ll find that and more within minutes of your new home at 2900 West Dallas.
