Key Business Area:

Variety of Home Options:

The Galleria area is comprised of several distinct communities and subdivisions, presenting a wide array of housing choices. Beyond high-rise condos, you'll find townhomes, patio homes, and custom-built new constructions. Some neighborhoods are gated and governed by deed restrictions.
