Midtown Houston Neighborhood Guide

Strategically located near Downtown, Midtown is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Houston.

This reputation goes way back. In the 1940s, Midtown is one of Houston’s main residential neighborhoods, a boom that’s greatly attributed to the Humble Oil and Refining Company. A surge in commercial developments followed, which caused some residents to move to less busy parts of the city.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Midtown experienced a decline due to the oil glut. The economic downturn caused a decrease in the district’s population and its reputation took a massive hit.

In the mid-90s, Houston established the Midtown Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone and the Midtown Management District some years later, paving the way to the district’s reinvention.

Today, Midtown is a vibrant and trendy neighborhood. Its redevelopment is still ongoing. With its proximity to Downtown and other major Inner Loop neighborhoods, Midtown is now one of the most sought-after addresses in Houston.

Midtown Houston has 77002, 77004, and 77006 Harris County zip codes.
