I think those empty fields are just going to become warehouses and such. Maybe a few starter communities sprinkled in, but nothing significant. I think FedEx just completed a distribution center near 288, south of 610.

You don't think that those areas that you guys are talking about will become urban developments where alot of buppies and yuppies will live considering the proximity to Downtown and TMC?

even areas that are dense for Houston Standards are getting even more so.

Look at the area around of Meyerland.

Back in 2000 the population was around 33K in 6sq miles (or 5500 ppsm).
Now it is near 40k and 6500ppsm
median home prices in that area are 250k

.................................................. .................................................. ...............

The area immediately south of Meyerland area
had 39 000 people in 2000, with an area of 5.6sq miles the density was 6900ppsm back then
now the area has over 45 000 and a density over 8000 ppsm
houses cost about 150K in the area
.................................................. .................................................. ...................

so apart from newer areas developing, older ones are getting more dense.
The heavily hispanic areas near 59 and gulfton increased from densities of 14000ppsm to almost 20, 000ppsm.

.................................................. .................................................. ..............................
we do have areas that drive our density down though. Around GB park, the zip code is 13sq miles and has a pop of only 9000, but 80% of the zip code is parkland

that is the same thing that affects the Cinco ranch zip code.
That area is 19sq miles and the population increase from 48 000 to 80,000 in the last 10 years, but because a huge chunk (almost a third) of that zip code is parkland the area is of lower density.

btw, that is 80K people that needs to be added to Houston's pop

.................................................. .................................................. ...................

I think the biggest whopper of them all, something that is really holding Houston's numbers back is the
77084 zip code which is almost 40, 000 sq miles and only has 75, 000 people.
The area has a huge park, an airport, and lots of empty space.
Ofcourse zip codes like 77032 will be low too because some of IAH take up half of it.

nah, I think they will develop just like the areas between 288 and Almeda is developing. have you seen all the high density development going up in that area?

Condos or just homes with little elbow between them?
