16 Park Villas Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Bordered by West Humble Avenue to the south, Gulf Avenue to the north and North D Street on the east, 16 Park Villas is an artsy, sophisticated urban neighborhood. Western Drive frames the western edge. 16 Park Villas is largely residential with most properties in the single-family home category. Most of these were built between 1940 and 1969. Newer properties include apartment complexes, some in high-rise buildings. Rounding off the property offerings are a few duplexes and row homes.

Bus service along West Wadley Avenue, courtesy of the E-Z Rider system gives easy access to the commercial center just west of the airpark.
