Apartment is 5 minutes from everything - Montrose/Washington night life, Rice Village, and still maintains a small neighborhood feel. Bus #25 runs directly to campus and stops only a block away.

Very upscale and safe area. Lots of great food and nearby shopping for anything you need from H-E-B to the Apple Store. Also the Galleria is only 10 minutes away. Levy Park is right next to the complex and is great for dogs and kids.
