Hello Everyone,

So, I finally decided on an apartment in Katy section of TX. Its the new apartments called Broadstone Grand Parkway. Does anyone know anything or know anyone living there yet? If not would you describe that area
(zip code) as safe?.Are these apartment really located in a convenient area? (I'm not that familiar with the area yet) I could not find any reviews on the apartments because again they are brand new. I also did a search on these boards, didn't find much info. I'm hoping I made a wise decision!

77494 is my area code, which is in the Cinco Ranch area.
Cinco Ranch is one of the most desirable areas in all of Greater Houston.
You'll be fine here.

It's a very very safe area with very highly ranked schools (academically) with loads of amenities.

On the flip side, experience tells me it's socially hard to break in and/or get the best service if you are not upper class (both in what you wear/drive and what kind of activities you enjoy IE people give me weird looks driving my motorcycle in the CR area). Same sort of social restrictions apply to any kid(s) you may be bringing along.
-------------------------------
For most people, though, that area should be fine...it really depends most on how well you get along with the kinds of people who live there.

Take it from someone who has actually lived in the area for 4 years and not from someone who just recently moved to south Katy, you will find that the "kinds of people" who live in Cinco and surrounding areas are very down-to-earth families. Some people who don't live in Cinco and similar areas seem to think that everyone in CR and the like are so far up the social ladder - it's funny really. Anyway, the location of the apts is convenient - located north of Falcon Ranch right off of Hwy 99. South Katy as a whole is fairly safe. I am not 100% sure about that particular location.

And people with good paying jobs usually have toys such as motorcycles and I regularly see motorcycles on weekends in Cinco.

Yeah, what she said. It amazes me the reputation people seem to give to Cinco peeps...it is so far from "upper class" it's not even funny. I wouldn't think twice about seeing someone on a motorcycle. As I've said many times before, there are a hell of a lot more Hondas than Lexus driver around here.
