Third ward is 67 on the map, Riverside is 83.

62 and 56 used to be part of 3rd ward

as for Almeda much isn't going on there either
Don't you think if that ares was desirable that there would be more development on it? Why did it skip to Pearland? There is no other side of the Houston metro like that.

Not according to this: Third Ward, Houston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There was even a Jewish Church in Third Ward. Those big houses along Brays Bayou weren't built for Blacks.

Maybe, a lot of developers are trying to get the pieces of land, and whoever owns the land is trying to see which developer can develop the property better. Who knows? I would love to see an Atlantic Station type development in the open spaces in Houston's city limits.

what are you talking about? the development in that area is huge. three times teh scale of Pearland. Pearland is developing now because it was empty and closer to the 610 loop. 10 years ago Pearland only had 37 000 people

They expand the term third ward to include areas that were never third ward and call it greater third ward. Third ward was the area going from Alabama to as far north as the Pierce Elevated.

as for your point on the big houses where do you think Riverside Terrace is?? Duh it is along Braes Bayou. That area Is Riverside Terrace.

Third Ward only touches the bayou east of Scott.

I should know the boundaries of Riverside, I live there

EDit: In fact Riverside Terrace and Third ward don't even abut each other, they are separated by Washington Terrace

Development in what areas? Areas along 288 from 610 to the Beltway (that's the areas I was talking about). Looks like open fields to me. Pearland has much more development.

I've always thought and heard of that area as Third Ward. Like you said, they expanded the boundaries. May have not been the historical Third Ward, but a lot of people consider it that today (instead of getting into specific neighborhood names). No need to get so upset though.

It would be nice if Pearland grows upward.

It'll be a while before we see that, if ever. There isn't much of a market for residential towers in Pearland. There are, of course, a few hotels and some midrise office buildings planned for Pearland.

No they did not expand the boundaries, people only associate it with 3rd ward because it is really close and after the black lawyers and doctors started pouring into the neighborhood, the area became almost entirely black as the Jews fled. Since it was a black neighborhood close to another black neighborhood people simply referred to it as 3rd ward too.

to simplify things people call it the greater third ward but 3rd ward boundaries end at Alabama in that area, then it drops down to Bloggett at Ennis and continues to Scott where it further drops down to Brays Bayou/ Macgregor. The area east of Ennis and south of Alabama is called Washington Terrace, south of that is Riverside Terrace.

The Heart of 3rd Watd was Dowling Street. when you get to areas passed HCC like Dowling and Mc Gowen that used to be the heart of 3rd ward. Emancipation Park was where all the festivities used to be held, and that park is north of Elgin (between Elgin and McGowen)

its misconceptions that pushed the 3rd ward as far south as people think it is. you wouldn't believe how close to Downtown 3rd ward was.

But ya, Brazoria county is really sparce. there is a lot of land available and no real need to build up right now.

I wouldn't be surprised if Houston annex land past Pearland in Brazoria County, since there is a lot of land down there.
