EaDo Houston Neighborhood Guide
EaDo Houston used to be the site of the Old Chinatown. Many East Asian immigrants helped shape the development of this community.
Even after the merchants moved to the present Chinatown near Bellaire, there are still a number of Asian businesses and temples in East Downtown Houston.
The triangle-shaped district is directly east of Downtown Houston, hence the name. It is flanked by the Eastex Fwy to the west, Gulf Fwy to the south, and the Union Pacific Railway tracks that runs from Congress to Cullen.
The East Downtown Management District, in its aim to have a well-planned, high-quality community, renamed the district in 1998 to EaDo. The hip name reflects the neighborhood’s vibe well and has helped in the neighborhood’s redevelopment.
It’s a great place for sporting fans. The neighborhood is within walking distance from the BBVA Compass Stadium, Minute Maid Park, and the Toyota Center.
The lively, alternative art scene in the district attracts younger professionals who wish to live in a hip area that’s near both work and entertainment venues.
EaDo is also a few minutes from the University of Houston and the Texas Southern University, making it a popular residential option for students and employees of these universities.
East Downtown Houston restaurants have some of the best Asian, Mexican, Cajun, and Texan food. It is also the site of the Houston Food Park where various food trucks serve residents from lunch daily.
The EaDo district focuses on a pedestrian experience, and more retail options are expected to open soon. New MetroRail expansion routes are expected to open soon to make commuting from the district much easier.
