    EaDo, in short for East Downtown, only got its name in 2008 through an online public poll. With a growing art and music scene, it is increasingly identified as an up-and-coming neighborhood. This is especially so with the presence of Warehouse Live, a go-to live music venue in the greater Houston metropolitan area.

    Something worth noting is its 10-mile hike and bike trail system, Columbia Tap Trail, that runs continuously from Dynamo Stadium to Med Centre; allowing easy commute for people travelling to work. If you are a fan of Star Wars, you might want to check out Neil’s Bahr - a popular spot amongst the locals for its geek-themed Star Wars memorabilia décor. 

    Businesses looking to lease their office space within an energetic neighborhood can consider starting your search at EaDo.
