The re-blossoming of Rice Village.
A bustling, historic haven tucked in the true heart of Houston—between the oak-lined avenues of the city’s finest residences, its medical district, and the leafy reaches of Rice University—the Village is undergoing a landmark transformation that will re-establish it as a treasured destination for years to come.
A Houston Icon
Since 1938, the iconic Village has grown in acreage and appeal by way of barber and deli shops, mom and-pops, and quirky variety stores, evolving over the years to gather upscale eateries, design boutiques, and national brands into its fold. The magic is in its mélange—from its lovable mix of shops and variegated
architecture to that palpable quality of a place touched by generations of merchants and families.
Under the leadership of Rice Management Company, the Village is investing in significant improvements that will embrace one of the area’s most defining attributes—no, not its traffic—its trees. The perennial pockets of plants and oaks and ivy that envelop the city with an enviable green year-round, and contribute to the enchanting milieu felt while strolling down streets dappled in shade, or sipping drinks on a terrace
draped with jasmine.
Rice Village will become Houston’s first walkable garden district.
