Real Estate

Major redevelopment of the surrounding residential streets of Fountain Square has resulted in many of the old Victorian-era homes being completely renovated, offering fully updated interiors with a clean modern feel while retaining the historical character of the structures. Others are untouched, in varying conditions, sometimes only requiring minor cosmetic and mechanical upgrades, sometimes needing a bit more.

New Construction can also be found in the area and some, like this one, are built in a modernist style while others conform more closely to the existing architecture. Investors, as well as home buyers, have been increasingly interested in Fountain Square, purchasing single and multi-unit homes as rental properties. With so many attractions within walking distance, there is no shortage of tenants available.


Fountain Square is very much a musical place. Freestyle rap is only one of the genres you might hear at Square Cat Vinyl's monthly open mic night. The Fountain Square Music Festival brings international, national and local acts together for a weekend of music, art, food and beer.

Restaurants in the area offer nearly every variety of cuisine imaginable. Pioneer serves traditional European comfort food with an upscale twist. La Margarita, a Mexican cantina with an outdoor patio and killer margaritas and Bluebeard a 'new American' joint with craft cocktails and an ever changing seasonal menu. The newly opened Inferno Room serves up exotic drinks and a menu of small plates developed by chef Carlos Salazar of Rook (another restaurant in the area).
