So I have a possible job opportunity in Ingleside and I'm really curious about what the culture and apartment market is like there. I've seen several of these types of posts previously, but unlike previous askers, I don't and in all likelihood will not have young children or a family to raise. I'm from Kansas City and I really enjoy the older, more artsy districts (love love love old brick lofts) here, is there anything similar to that in this area?

I've done some poking around and I haven't really found a younger, trendy area of town, does Corpus Christi not really have an analogous area, or have I just not found it yet?

What do commute times look like working in Ingleside and possibly living in Corpus Christi or even Rockport?

I appreciate any help you guys could give.

There are some apartments in a building called the Nueces Lofts and they're downtown. I understand the rent is reasonable. There may be a couple of other downtown loft-ish apartments, but I'm not sure. I think there are some apartments either owned by or connected to a restaurant called Katz's 21. Downtown is quirky, but I wouldn't call it artsy. Also, it could be loud on Friday and Saturday nights. The downtown area is trying to make a comeback, but I think most young people live in apartments on the southside. I would much prefer to live downtown if I were young and single. The bayfront is right there and there are a couple of good coffee shops, restaurants and bars.

The commute to Ingleside would be about 25 mins. or so. I'm not sure about the Rockport to Ingleside commute.

The Del Mar / Lamar Park section of town (between Ocean Drive and Staples, and Ayers and Doddridge) has some older homes and apartment complexes. It's the closest thing to a "trendy" area in CC.

The sad fact, though, is that CC does not really have an artsy/trendy part of town. Nothing like, say, the Grand Ave. area in St. Paul, MN or the South Congress area in Austin.

Check out Portland. There are alot of apartment complexes available, and a large housing rental market too. Your commute to Ingleside is about 10 minutes.
