Southside Circle History
Southside Circle is the brainchild of developer Edlo L. Crain. The small community broke ground in 1925. Soon after, bungalows, swimming pools, and parks adorned the community’s streets.
Crain added Chinese Tallow trees and Radiant Red rose bushes to enhance the development’s look. Afterward, concrete curbs, sidewalks, and gravel streets were added to the community’s layout.
Like West University Place, Southside Place was incorporated in 1934. The city has a council-manager form of government.
The area where Southside Circle now sits used to be part of Shell Oil’s Bellaire Research Center. Development started sometime in 2013, and today is one of the most luxurious gated communities within the Inner Loop.
