The interior dark hardwood floors and matching cabinets are accentuated by bright white quartz counter tops in the kitchen, and every room is beautiful to the last detail, like the crown molding and deep-sill windows.

Coming home to your beautiful downtown apartment on Rusk Street means that transitioning from work to the more fun aspects of life is a breeze. You’re in quick access to Alley Theatre, Downtown Aquarium, House of Blues, and Jones Hall for the Performing Arts where you can enjoy date night and family-friendly events alike. Nightlife nearby doesn’t leave anything to be desired either with bars such as Bovine & Barley, Flying Saucer, Prohibition, and Boots n Shoots to name a few. Restaurants and coffee shops are a plenty, two of my favorite spots are Minuti Coffee and Sambuca. Downtown wasn’t always a shopping destination, but there are now big chain stores like Forver 21 and Jo. A Bank in addition to boutique retailers at the Shops at Houston Center.
