Uptown District and Galleria Area

Experience the Elegance and Energy of Uptown
and the Galleria

Blue Ox Moving & Storage proudly serves the residents of Uptown and Houston's Galleria area. The Uptown District is the 17th largest business district in the nation and is home to 2,000 companies, including the headquarters of Air Liquide, Apache Corporation, and Marathon Oil. It also hosts sixteen consulates, making it a significant hub for international business and diplomacy.

Developed by Gerald Hines in the 1960s, Uptown has evolved into a premier destination for hotels and upscale shopping by the late '80s. Bordered by Woodway Drive, Interstate 610, Highway 59, and Yorktown Street, Uptown is home to affluent communities like Afton Oaks and Tanglewood. The Galleria, the largest shopping mall in Texas and the seventh largest in the country, is the heart of Uptown, offering high-fashion boutiques, major retail stores, an indoor ice rink, and fine dining establishments.

Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park, a popular location for photoshoots, features a stunning waterfall fountain and adds to the area's charm. Uptown children attend schools in the Houston Independent School District (HISD) or one of several prestigious private schools in the area.

Blue Ox Moving & Storage specializes in relocations to and within the Uptown and Galleria areas. Whether you’re moving for the bustling business environment, the upscale shopping, or the vibrant cultural scene, we ensure your move is handled with professionalism and care.

Tips for Your Move to Uptown/Galleria

Plan your move during weekday mornings or early afternoons to avoid heavy traffic and crowded streets, ensuring a smoother moving process.
