I doubt it. that place is least desirable for a reason. closer to the refinery cities. close to the ship channel, more polluted area, more swampy area.

the south should be more desirable, based on the growth of Pearland, and the proximity to Clear lake friendswood, etc

I think once the tollway and U.S. 90 open alot of the gaps from Summerwood back to North Shore will start peppering/filling in at a fairly steady pace.

I would love to see Atlanta Station and Regent Square typed developments as infill developments. These projects will make Houston more urban and less car dependent (a little counts).
