Triangle State is named for the triangle formed by W. 45th St. as the base and N. Lamar Blvd. and Guadalupe St. as the legs. For years this neighborhood was mostly empty lots until it was sold by the city to developers.

But with all of the shopping, dining, and entertainment options available in the neighborhood, residents have little need to look elsewhere.
Although it is in the middle of town, the neighborhood also has several greenspaces for residents and their pets to enjoy. The largest greenspace has synchronized fountains and a weekly farmers market.
The neighborhood is very much an urban setting, with the attendant traffic and noise. While there are parks and excellent schools near the area, Triangle State appeals mostly to younger professionals and couples who work in the area or downtown. The apartment complexes are largely occupied by University of Texas students.
