Metropole is one of a few high-rises in the Greenway Plaza area. Constructed originally as an office building, Metropole has been renovated into a luxury apartment complex (with a phase 2 building next door). This property has spacious floor-plans and huge balconies.

The interiors are a little basic for me, but they are still class A. The large windows and balconies are a huge plus. However, some of the kitchens can be a little funky.

No leg space under the kitchen counter, making it difficult to use as a dining area. You’d have to hunch over those bar stools.

The surrounding area is very nice. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Very close to major grocery stores like Costco and H-E-B. I live a few blocks away and love this area. This property is especially handy if you work in any of the Greenway Plaza buildings.

The units in their phase 2 building have the same exact finishes, but they have “Juliette” balconies instead of the larger ones that the renovated office building has.

Metropole is one of the nicer apartments in the Greenway Plaza area. There are several other solid options in the area as well. Make sure to add Metropole to your short list if you want large patios and a building with concrete construction!
