Super Neighborhood 28 - University Place
Your super neighborhood at-a-glance:
University Place is a group of neighborhoods surrounding Rice University. The better known neighborhoods, Southampton, Southgate, Old Braeswood and Boulevard Oaks, are deed restricted and expensive. Old Braeswood in the south and Boulevard Oaks in the north, include some of the city’s finest homes, especially along the live oak esplanades of Sunset, North and South Boulevards. Proximity to the Texas Medical Center has led to intense redevelopment along Holcombe and Main, and on the site of the old Shamrock Hilton hotel. The Village shopping district and the blocks adjacent to Montrose Boulevard have a mix of uses with considerable redevelopment underway.
