The Hardy Yards is a 43-acre piece of land located about 1,000 yards north of Downtown Houston. The district is undergoing major redevelopment.

The district has current and proposed features like:

Investing a home in Hardy Yards, which is still in flux and undergoing massive changes carries a risk but can be rewarding. The results are not definite until at least a decade has passed. It is a toss-up whether the community will flourish and thrive or even suffer because of this. The same gentrification plans for other Inner Loop neighborhoods did not pan out.

Homebuyers should test whether they can accept the reality of moving into an area in the midst of a massive redevelopment plan. Advice from one of Houston's top realtors, Paige Martin, could be more accurate in the risks and possible rewards of buying real estate here.

“I had a great experience working with Brittney Coyle of Houston Properties. She had great advice to help narrow down my choice. She and the team was great during the entire process. Even after the sale was complete Brittney followed up with me on multiple occasions to ensure that everything was going smoothly. I would definitely recommend her and the Houston Properties services!” - Efrain Higueros (Google Review)

Hardy Yards History

While the southern part of the Near Northside area/Hardy Yards is only located about 2,000 feet away from where the Allen brothers landed to “start the City of Houston,” the area really didn’t get much development until the 1880s-1890s.

Thanks to cotton and cattle, railroads brought huge economic growth for Houston (and Texas) in the late 19th century.

The Hardy Yards development was one of the major rail yards for Houston. Thanks to the close proximity, the Near Northside neighborhood experienced dramatic growth and developed into a working-class neighborhood, primarily filled with European immigrants who arrived by rail.

After World War II, railroad traffic declined and Houston started a massive suburban development.

As such, the Hardy Yards and surrounding areas fell into disrepair for several decades.

In 2008, Hurricane Ike ravaged Bayou City.

Houston received over $260 million in federal relief funds after Hurricane Ike ravaged Bayou City.

The city is spending part of these funds on real estate development projects.

One of the most ambitious of these projects is the redevelopment of Hardy Yards, a long-vacant railcar maintenance yard located in Houston’s Near Northside neighborhood, just a few hundred yards north of Downtown Houston.

Houston City Council approved the site as a Tax Increment Refinance Zone. In December, the city council authorized a $14.5 million performance-based loan through the federal Community Block Grant Disaster Relief Program for rental housing projects.
