Default Home Communities Easy access to downtown Houston

Hi,

I am trying to find a home community (new home) from where the access to the downtown is fast and easy. Currently, I live on Richmond and Gessner and I take METRO to go to downtown. It only takes me 20-25 minutes to reach downtown using the Westpark and Gessner park and ride.

Can anyone recommend any housing which is close to METRO or have easy access to downtown? I work as a consultant and most of the gigs are in downtown or near downtown.

What kind of housing are you looking for? There are plenty of new townhomes and condos near downtown.

There are plenty of new townhomes along Washington that fit the bill and that is a very close Metro ride to downtown. Another alternative is the fairly new townhouses along Dallas. If you want a house with a yard try W. University, Meyerland and that area (SW side) or the Heights, Timbergrove to the N and NW. If you are looking for a masterplanned community in the burbs, Sugarland (SW) and Fairfield (NE) have the best commutes but limited to no busses.
