Houston’s Midtown area is booming with new class A luxury apartment complexes. However, not everybody can afford those expensive mid-rise rates. Perhaps an already established property in the area, like 2222 Smith Street, could be a good fit for the frugal Midtown renter.

I toured 2222 Smith Street to get a better feel for some of Midtown’s slightly older properties. The property was built in 2003 and still looks pretty good!

They interior finishes are nice and clean. But after touring some of the newer mid-rises in the area, you can sense that the styles are slowly getting outdated.  Nothing too extreme though. They still look great and I’m sure many people would be happy living here.

One thing I didn’t like about the model unit was the bedroom was slightly exposed. The wall didn’t reach the top of the ceiling, which kind of bugged me. I’ve seen this in loft style apartments, but not sure why they decided to do it at this property.

The wall didn't reach all the way up to the wall, not a fan of that.

Their pool was very nice and well maintained.

The location is great! Walking distance to bars and restaurants.

Parking is very convenient, with a Spec’s liquor store built right next to it. The multi level parking garage is across the street and the buildings are connected with a cat-walk.

Overall 2222 Smith Street is a great option if you are looking to save a little money while living in a luxury Midtown apartment.
