Catalyst Houston: Gorgeous Downtown Apartment Homes with Walkability

Hello Catalyst Houston!

Welcome to our community blog!

Twice a month, we will post a new blog informing our residents and the community with updates on local events, apartment tips and tricks, things to do in the area, and much more. Keep checking back to see what’s new, and feel free to leave us a comment with any questions or highlights of your own!
For our first post, we wanted to highlight the fact that our community is within walking distance from so many things in Downtown Houston.
Some of the best dining and entertainment is right in our own backyard, as well as local transportation, sports, and more, so check out these great places!

Sports Bar

It’s football season in Houston, so we will start with a place to watch football games and the Houston Texans. Biggio’s (1777 Walker St, Houston, TX 77010) is only an 8-minute walk to great food, cold drinks, and over 30 TVs – including two 30-inch screens. Their chicken and waffles are delicious, along with classics like loaded nachos and crispy buffalo wings.

Minute Maid Park

There is still time to catch a Houston Astros game at Minute Maid Park, which is only a 5-minute walk from Catalyst Houston. You can practically hear the cheers from the crowd out your window when the Astros play, but nothing is better than watching the game from the stands. They play this weekend September 17 – 19, 2021 against the Diamondbacks and then are here again from the 28th – 30th for the Tampa Bay Rays. Playoffs begin in October!

Local Dining

One of our favorite perks of living at Catalyst is our close proximity to some of the best dining in Houston. Within just a few blocks lie some of the best restaurants Downtown Houston has to offer. Check out these 3 local favorites:

Irma’s Southwest Grill

For one of the best chile rellenos in the area, Irma’s can’t be beaten. It’s a great spot for lunch and the best part is, it’s right out our front door on the corner of La Branch and Texas Ave.

Potente and Osso Kristalla

Pasta is king at Potente, the upscale Italian and Modern American restaurant. Try the house-made truffle pasta. For something more casual, check out its neighbor Osso Kristalla, featuring Italian food. Both restaurants are both owned by Houston-based Jim Crane, owner of the Houston Astros, and both spots try to feature fresh, local ingredients.

Local Transportation

To get anywhere else around Houston, take a walk to Houston Central Station, just four blocks from Catalyst. Access the Red, Purple, and Green Lines all from this central hub, surrounded by delicious food and plenty to see.

Besides all of these amazing options around Catalyst Houston, there is a ton more to see downtown such as Discovery Green and Kinder Lake for a nice walk in the park.
