Located in the heart of downtown Houston is the historic Market Square Park.
Market Square Park is one square block in the historic district that brings an old time historic ambiance. This is a tree-lined area, filled with an abundance of flowers, tables and chairs, and even a dog park. The famous restaurant, Niko Niko’s, is featured in Market Square Park. The café style restaurant is a perfect location for nearby workers to visit during lunch. Market Square becomes the trendy spot for lunchtime and for happy hour. As they have many popular restaurants, cafes and bars that surround the park. However, the market square park attracts restaurant goers with the variety of art scattered throughout the park. The park is also responsible for putting on several events throughout the month, such as Movie Under the Stars, Blanket Bingo, bike races and dog runs, and many more.

Market Square Tower is a new high-rise residential development that has added to our Houston skyline. Opening in November 2016, the 40-story high rise located at Preston and Louisiana street is the next luxury development to hit downtown. Offering many amenities, such as an indoor basketball court, movie theatre, and an infinity deck with a glass bottom pool on the 40th floor. Along with a pristine location just walking distance to buildings in the Central Business District.
Just across the street from Market Square Tower, is the well-known Lyric Centre building. The Lyric Centre has always been a prestigious building in the CBD, but now the Lyric Centre is more desirable than ever. With brand new renovations taking place throughout the building, the sleek new designs are reinventing the building’s image.
