Uptown Loop Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Uptown Loop is actually part of a much larger area which is known as Uptown Central. It is located between downtown San Antonio and the San Antonio International Airport. Because it is an area where so many roads come together, it is a major transportation area of the city.
Many Texas cities are built around major roads that connect to or are part of major highways, and because they are built around the city or around parts of the city, they are referred to as a Loop. These Loops make it possible for people to get to all areas of the city and go from one end to another without having to drive through a lot of heavy traffic within the city.
The Uptown Loop is the part of Uptown Central where the major offices and retail centers are located. It is close to the San Antonio International Airport, so there are many hotels that are located in the vicinity. This thriving business district is known for the many trendy shops, boutiques and posh restaurants that are located throughout the area. The area is also served by two major shopping malls: the Quarry and North Star Mall.
Fort Sam Houston, the Army installation in San Antonio is also located within a short distance from the area.
It is this business area, combined with the wealth of shops, the easy access to malls, schools, libraries and other public services that draws people to the Uptown Central area to live. Another great aspect of this area of San Antonio is that people who choose to live in Uptown Broadway, the residential part of Uptown Central, which includes Alamo Heights, Terrell Hills and Olmos Park, are able to find a wealth of luxury condominiums, rental apartments and homes that allow area residents to live a very upscale lifestyle at an affordable price.
