HOUSTON - Townhome development remains in high gear inside Loop 610, with hot spots including the Texas Medical Center, Upper Kirby and Museum District areas.

"Townhomes are popular because they occupy less of a footprint," said Linda Jamail Marshall of Linda Marshall Realtors Inc. "They require less maintenance, but they offer the amenities of a single-family home."

"[The Texas Medical Center District] is one of the few places where you have the ability to purchase land," Marshall said. "Several builders have moved there. They've been able to procure land where the population declined. Anything east of [Texas 288] is ripe for development with the exception of neighborhoods with [minimum] lot size."

Townhomes in this area generally range from the high $300,000s to $450,000, Marshall said. They average 2,300 sf and usually feature three bedrooms and three baths. These homes are being marketed mostly to young professionals.

The museum area, west of Texas 288 and north of Hermann Park, is seeing more high-end townhome developments. These offer more square footage and prices ranging from the $500,000s to $600,000s.
