Upper Kirby

Upper Kirby has long been an area defined more by its neighbors than its own identity. Adjacent to River Oaks, Greenway Plaza, Montrose, Southampton and West University, Upper Kirby has a signature Houston mix: giant chains (Whole Foods, Borders, Academy, Chili's) sit next to local boutiques and salons; streets house both residences and restaurants; and housing can mean a McMansion, a towering townhouse, a retro eight-plex or a giant complex like the new Gables West Ave. Like the rest of the city, it's a little bit of everything all mixed up together.

The red telephone booths and other amenities are provided by the Upper Kirby District Foundation, a non-profit group  dedicated to enhancing the Upper Kirby District for commercial and residential living.
