Energy Corridor Houston Homes Guide
The Energy Corridor provides a good balance between “work and play”. Residents enjoy living near job centers and living near entertainment and recreational hubs.
With nearly 26,000 acres of urban park areas adjacent to the district, Energy Corridor residents get easy access to trails, golf courses, and parks. Retail and dining establishments can also be found in and around the district.
Conveniently zoned to three school districts, the Energy Corridor is home to award-winning and top ranked schools, including Barbara Bush Elementary, Westside High School, and Stratford High School.
The 1.700-acre district started in the 1970s, when Shell Oil Company and Conoco established campus facilities along a stretch of the Katy Freeway between Beltway 8 and Grand Parkway. Several companies followed suit, and in 2001, the Energy Corridor was officially established as a municipal management district.
The Energy Corridor offers some of the most competitive prices in Houston, featuring great options including single-family homes and townhomes.
