These often three-story structures are an example of how the modern home has evolved in Houston. Residents are less likely to find traditional one-story builds, but there are still some sprinkled throughout the area. Homes and apartments are more likely to be compact in this area, so if you're not a fan of neighbors this may not be the area for you.
