yeah, that zip code is huge but empty. has an airport and a huge park
the 77044 zip code is 40, 000 sq miles too, but only had 15 000 people. that is because a large area of the land is lake and wetlands

HtownLove, I have always wondered why developers have shyed away from the east and northeast side of the city and county. Hopefully with the completion of the tollway and U.S. 90(Crosby Fwy., Northeast Fwy.) it will fill in the huge dead space.

I've heard on city-data that the eastern areas are not desirable because of the oil refineries. Now, one of y'all told me that

That is more the Pasadena-Deer Park-La Porte area where most of the refineries are located.

well the furthest areas are protected wetlands, no building over there.

White flight occurred west (going east meant going towards oil fields and the black areas of the golden triangle), so the west became more desirable, and development centered around those areas.

but yes, the east side is fairly empty too.

the area immediately east of downtown only has 10K people compared to 77006 on the west which has twice that.

Wow! Hopefully, the east will be the place to be in the future, along with others.

the refineries are mainly east of the city in La Porte, etc, but east of the city there is also the ship channel, and other things.

The area does have a lot of people, but also a lot of space taken up by important things.


77015 for example has about 60 000 people but a density of only 2600 ppsm but that is because of the ship channel

Hopefully, the amusement will get built and cause the area that you guys are referring to to explode.
