Green Door Lofts, featured on Fixer Upper Urban Loft Challenge and referred to as "Funky Town" by Chip, is a 9-unit luxury loft complex in the heart of Waco's bustling Silo District. We are next door to the historic Hippodrome Dinner Theater and steps away from eclectic shops, antique stores, wine tasting rooms, and live music. Magnolia Market is an easy walk away, or take the free trolley that stops outside. Each loft is crafted with a unique flair and offers a distinct experience.

The space
The Urban Cowboy Loft is a fun, unique loft home where Texas western style and urban living merge into a fun, funky vibe. A pair of French doors overlook a quiet heated courtyard pool. Skylights bathe the living room in natural light, making it the perfect place to relax. The master bedroom boasts a king-sized bed with pressed, triple-sheeted linens. In the living room there is wall-mounted, queen-sized Murphy bed. The loft has an in-unit washer/dryer. Guests will also love the fully-equipped kitchen, complete with coffee, tea, and of course my mom's cinnamon rolls. Entertainment includes a large screen SmartTV with Direct TV/Netflix. Cool LED lighting in the living room and bedroom to help set the mood for any occasion.

Guest access
The building's courtyard has a HEATED POOL with lounge chairs and tables. The mezzanine deck overlooks the avenue below - perfect for people watching!

Other things to note
The Urban Cowboy Loft is on the second floor and accessed only by stairs. If this is an issue, please consider our 3 bedroom listing on the first floor. The Urban Cowboy Loft is immediately adjacent to the Retro Loft.

Green Door Lofts gets its name from the famous green door that welcomes residents into the courtyard. The green door is also referred to locally as the Hobbit Door. Immediately next door to the Hippodrome theater, the door serves as a backdrop for visitors on the street stopping and posing for selfies. Countless brides have ventured to the door for their bridal portraits. We love it!! This 9 unit complex is located on a trendy street that links the historic old homes of Waco with the parks along the Brazos River. Next door is the iconic Waco Hippodrome, where you can grab dinner and an adult beverage while watching a play, concert, or show. Waco’s free trolley stops in front of the loft before continuing to the Silos and other downtown shops.

A few blocks away is Cameron Park, a 416-acre stretch of land with hike and bike trails and the Waco Zoo. We are also located within five minutes of Baylor's McLane Stadium. On game days, Baylor’s free shuttle that runs between downtown and the stadium is only a couple blocks away.

Hello, my name is Jim Olmsted. I am the owner of the Green Door Lofts. In my real life, I am a 56 year old physician specializing in radiology. In my alter ego life, I am an outgoing host who enjoys meeting people and sharing my vibrant community with visitors from all over the world. I have lived in Waco for 25 years, having relocated downtown to the lofts four years ago. Useless trivia about me is that I own at least eight bicycles; I've lost count. I enjoy racing all of them, mountain, road, gravel, and even Ironman triathlon. Downtown living is perfect for me as many of our rides in Waco depart from downtown riverfront area, and the world renowned Cameron Park trail system is less than a mile away. A proud father of two sons, both young physicians, I enjoy traveling the world with my boys and my friends. Owning and managing the Green Door Lofts is my newest exciting adventure. I look forward to meeting new people and sharing my incredible community with them.
