All sources show that Houston is the most dense of the big 5. That isn't even a debatable topic

I advocate a Trail of Tears for the residents of Afton Oaks. It will be major step forward in bridging the gap.

Good Luck on that one.

But Afton Oaks is one of the major reasons the University line isn't in yet.

Uptown and DT will always be separate because of that area.

I think it would be interesting to see Houston grow as an outsider. LOL

Naw it will just develop around it, Afton Oaks will just be a little pocket area. It is already happening with the High Street apartments under construction and the future River Oaks District, that new 35 story building going up and those other older apartments that we're suppose to be a upscale single family neighborhood but was sold to a apartment developer.

naw, the Oaks Neighborhoods are too large they run from Montrose to uptown an Richmond to Buffalo Bayou. Only continuous development that may occur would have to be a thin strip along Westpark.

One thing i heard about that is a little disturbing. Our current mayor is not really for densification. The announcement made a month or two ago stating that urban style townhomes and apartments will be going up outside of the loop and sprouting up at all different parts of the city.

If that trend continues, the 610 inner loop will lose some of its feel as the inner urban part of the city, and Houston will continue to be one big sprawling mess with no real city center. It's already like that now, but the strides made these last 15 years have been trying to deter that to where Houston is growing in the right direction. If the mayor keeps this up, it will thwart this plan.

She needs to hurry up n go!
