Top Apartments near Houston Energy Corridor

The Energy Corridor received its name from the heavy concentration of regional and corporate headquarters of energy companies such as BP America, Exxon Mobil Chemical, ConocoPhillips, and Foster Wheeler. Although located on Houston’s outer northwest edge, Energy Corridor is one of the largest employment centers in the city. The Energy Corridor is a fair distance away from Houston’s main metropolis and thus offers access to many resources that city residents do not have such as over 50 miles of hiking trails and 26,000 acres of recreational activities. However, with such powerful business in the area, there is still a wide variety of fine dining, golfing, and shopping. Also, with so much economic stimulation, there are some of the best apartments in Houston nearby.

We’ve compiled five ideal apartments for new and current Houston residents looking for excellent apartments near their work and based our findings on a combination of location, convenience of commute, the quality of apartments, and other factors that contribute to making a great new home.

Broadstone Park West’s location is a major plus for residents.

These apartments may be closer than any other complex in all of Houston to this amount of natural land. Meanwhile, the complex provides upscale amenities and fully upgraded interiors and kitchens and is less than ten minutes away from the Energy Corridor’s center.

Alexan Enclave: For the amenity lover

Are you a young professional trying to live somewhere near the Energy Corridor that has access to outdoor recreational activities and a variety of shopping centers? Alexan Enclave is your answer being blocks from the George Bush Park and across the street from shopping and restaurants while the West Oaks Mall is ten minutes away. Also, Alexan Enclave is unique in that it only offers one bedroom apartments, thus perfect for those new to Houston. Alexan Enclave rated high with us because of its mix of fine amenities (such as two large community rooms with billiards and shuffle board tables) and the careful attention to incorporating some of the finest additions to its apartment interiors.

Marquis on Memorial: For the renter that wants to be close, but not too close

Although the amenities are not as elaborate as others in the area (not a huge deal since the gym is open 24/7 and the pool area is much nicer than average), the landscaping and exterior provide a quaint, neighborhood atmosphere. Furthermore, there is nothing to complain about the interiors: bathrooms with brushed nickel fixtures and granite counter tops, spacious bedrooms, and vinyl flooring. Set within the center of the Energy Corridor is one of Marquis on Memorial’s best aspects with many of the community’s shopping, dining, outdoor recreational areas, and business being less than ten minutes away.
