Houston - City Centre

These photos are from City Centre which is a corporate designed mixed use development. Condos are nice but very expensive. Shopping is good though and its great for people watching.

Enjoy.

you are correct sir. but as stated before this place is not really that cool. its a lot smaller then you would think. there is only one strip with shops on it and the rest is over priced condos with no views.

But it makes up for its lack of coolness with some great restaurants, and of course the Yard House with 150 beers on tap!

The Yard House justifies CityCentre's existence on its own. Nice quick little set here.
