of Rice Village
As the Village undergoes an elegant transformation, learn how we’re honoring our roots while nurturing new growth.
Rice Village will become
Houston’s first walkable
A Natural Commons
In the coming months, hardscape sidewalks will gain lush landscaping and an abundance of seasonal plants, verdant facade refreshes, pop-up parks, and flowering art installations.
We’ll also be making it easier to reach us. Stitching together the Village’s urban grid of streets with its adjacent avenues and boulevards, the district will be safely accessible by bike and by foot—replacing congestion with convenience, and worn edges with pedestrian-friendly pathways and lighting. Clear signage and generous shade coverage will make for comfortable passage rain or shine.
The Village has always nurtured an atmosphere of relaxed discovery—whether in uncovering new brands or revisiting timeless favorites—with colorful storefronts and canopied restaurants that welcome both practical and leisurely pursuits. Ongoing renovations and innovations keep the district flush with the kind of vibrancy and versatility inherent to a village experience.
And an active rotation of programming and events—yoga, farmers markets, holiday concerts, art exhibits in the plaza—further encourages the gentle co-mingling of people and place.
A place seamlessly interwoven
into the cultural and historic
fabric of its neighborhood.
While we grow greener, more connected, and more cohesive as a village, we acknowledge that any good growth requires time and teamwork—and real respect for our roots. We are so grateful for your enthusiasm and patience while we work to cultivate a walkable, welcoming space for commerce and community.
A place growing and growing together.
