Midtown Houston Neighborhood Guide
Midtown’s central location within the Inner Loop provides almost immediate access to Downtown Houston, the Medical Center, and the Museum District.
The district is south of Gulf Fwy, west of South Fwy, and north of Southwest Fwy. The MetroRAIL Red Line bisects Midtown with three stops: Wheeler, Ensemble/HCC, and McGowen.
During the 40s, Midtown was a very popular residential district due in large part to the Humble Oil and Refining Company. Commercial establishments flocked to Midtown, which caused some residents to move to quieter Houston neighborhoods.
Vietnamese immigrants and Vietnamese Americans were responsible for Midtown’s first redevelopment in the 1970s. They established “Little Saigon” in the district.
The 1980s oil glut hit Houston hard, and Midtown was one of the neighborhoods to see a decrease in population during the period.
Redevelopment in Midtown officially started in 1995, after the city of Houston established the Midtown Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ). Funds from the TIRZ helped push the district toward its current redevelopment. The Midtown Management District was formed four years later.
The Midtown of today is still evolving, as more residential and commercial developments are headed for the 617-acre district.
