East Downtown Houston TX History

East Downtown was once home to Houston’s old Chinatown. Seeking more affordable land, many Cantonese immigrants moved to the district from Downtown Houston in the 1930s. They established several businesses, attracting other East Asian immigrants.

These Chinese merchants moved to the southeastern edge of Downtown Houston in the early 1950s. It took a while for everything to settle, but by the 1990s many of these businesses have relocated to the current Chinatown near Bellaire and Alief.

The district was left with abandoned warehouses and several bars, but with little development activity. In recent years, however, with the increase in property taxes in Houston’s business districts and the lack of housing in the city, the district started to get the attention it deserves.

In 2008, the East Downtown Management District called for suggestions for a new name to baptize the up-and-coming district. They have a vision of a well-planned, high quality community.

Following the hip trend that’s characteristic of this neighborhood, they named it EaDo, short for East Downtown.

Fun Things To Do Near East Downtown

The neighborhood offers a variety of ethnic grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and art galleries. EaDo is one of the 10 most accessible Houston neighborhoods.

Nightlife and sporting events draw crowds to the district. The BBVA Compass Stadium, home of the Houston Dynamo and the Texas Southern University football team was completed in 2012 and has been the anchor for EaDo Houston development.

Warehouse Live on 813 St. Emanuel Street is a 1920s warehouse that’s been converted to a live entertainment venue. It was named “Best Musical Venue” in 2008 by Citysearch and has hosted many popular music acts.

Among the many unique shops in EaDo are Aerosol Warfare, an art gallery, and an urban wear boutique.

Another unique concept that fits well with EaDo’s growing creative culture is Houston Makerspace. Through crowdfunding, the facility is a space where creatives can gather to learn and fabricate their ideas into highly-valued works. Their facilities include a wood shop, metal shop, rapid prototyping lab, screen printing studio, jewelry studio, and textiles lab, among others.

The Houston Food Park sits on a parking lot at 1504 Saint Emanuel St., beside the vacant Meridian Sports Bar. This food truck park opens from lunch daily and celebrates Houston’s vibrant food scene.

East Downtown Houston restaurants have some of the best Asian, Mexican, Cajun, and Texan food—though it’s not just humans that are fans of EaDo’s food scene. The Green Bone is a doggie espresso bar on 2104 Leeland and offers healthy snacks and drinks for both pets and their owners.

The neighborhood has a bike score of 70, making it a favorite among many Houston cycling groups. The area is very flat and is home to the Columbia Tap Rail Trail. This 4-mile stretch starts from the south, passes through the scenic Hermann Park, and ends at Dowling Street.

EaDo Stadium

Houston’s first protected, dedicated bike lane will open on Lamar Street in Downtown Houston to effectively connect the Buffalo Bayou Trails and Columbia Bike Trails. Residents who bike to work will have an easier time going to Downtown during rush hour.
