The Neighborhoods of West Houston

Over 7 million people call Houston and Greater Houston home. Over 2 million people call "Houston" home. It is the fourth most populated city in the United States, trailing only New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. According to Forbes, Houston ranks first among U.S. cities where paychecks stretch the furthest. Houston is home to the second largest concentration of Fortune 1000 companies in the country, 49, behind New York, 72. Houston ranks first in total park acreage among U.S. cities with more than one million residents. I really could go on and on, but to sum it all up, Houston is the land of opportunity. Houston is the land of growth. But where to live?

The Neighborhoods of West Houston

Today I will be sharing with you the neighborhoods and suburbs of West Houston. These growth in these communities have been fired by the close proximity to the Energy Coriddor. Katy and Fulshear being the most popular of the two has amazing schools and one-of-a-kind master planned communities.

Alief

Alief is located in western Harris County along the Southern Pacifi c Railroad and Brays Bayou. Alief ISD is the most ethnically diverse school district of its size in all of Texas and its 45,000 enrolled students speak more than 60 languages. The district offers a wide range of opportunities in academics, the arts, and career and technology education.

Fulshear

Fulshear is home to dynamic new developments for those who like the feel of country living with easy access to big-city amenities like major shopping, dining, and Chinatown

Houston is home to the largest Asian population in the southern United States. The city’s original Chinatown, located just east of Downtown, relocated in the early 1990s to the southwest area of the city. Today, Chinese shopping centers like Hong Kong City Mall, restaurants, bakeries and more sit alongside markets dedicated to Indian, Pakistani and Middle Eastern wares. The area, also known as Asiatown, is complete with street signs featuring Chinese characters. 

entertainment venues. Primarily a farm and ranch community, the city offers a beautiful landscape, ranging from rolling terrain dotted with centuries-old hardwoods, grassy prairies, and serene lowlands along the banks of the Brazos River. Lamar Consolidated ISD serves students in the area.

Katy

Located at the intersection of Harris, Fort Bend, and Waller counties, Katy offers the appeal of small-town suburbia and close distance to Houston-area businesses and recreation. Housing options range from apartments and condos to complete living communities with waterfront and golf-course properties. Katy ISD is nationally recognized for its educational programs. 

Westchase

The Westchase District offers a unique suburban lifestyle coupled with the excitement and energy of living in the city. Housing options range from apartments and townhomes to single-family homes and multi-million dollar mansions. The district’s proximity to The Galleria and Memorial City Mall, as well as nearby grocery stores and banks, allows residents to find all the necessities close to home. Two country clubs offer world-class golf, and well-maintained hike-and-bike trails lead to Storey Park and Hershey Park. Houston ISD and Alief ISD serve the Westchase District.
