Which Houston area do you think will grow the most by 2050.

areas of Houston's ETJ are divided into blocks and most have associations with lofty plans for the area.

In terms of Job Creation, population, schools, entertainment, transportation, and other categories, which do you think will be most impressive by 2050

North Houston--Population 1,300,000

It includes Northern Harris County and southern Montgomery County. It encompasses neighborhoods such as Spring, the Woodlands, Magnolia, Humble, Conroe, parts of Cypress

Includes Lake Houston, Conroe, Harrison, Grand Lake and Lake Woodlands.


North Houston Association - Area Information
.................................................. .................................................. .............

West Houston- -Population 1,500,000

It includes Parts of Harris, Fort Bend and Waller Counties. It includes parts of the city of Houston, Katy, Sugarland and some of Cypress.

The Area already has more people than all other US Cities except Houston and the cities bigger than it.

900,000 people do not belong to any one city, but are just part of Houston's unincorporated ETJ.

The Association's 2050 plan had the area at 1M people in 2000 and was expecting another 1M by 2050, but they are already halfway there.
The Association is expecting the job total in the area to double to 1M Jobs by 2050.

Transportation is another biggie on the list as the urbanized area (now at 250 sq miles) is expected to double to accommodate a doubling in the population.

the area grew from 16,000 in 1970 to 1.5M now.

two sided blow on that one. the move to TW is gonna kill Greenspoint. Exxon workers fuel the hotels and restaurants in the area.

I think Exxon will have an overall huge impact on North Houston tho. That is gonna make the Woodlands area improve even quicker.

plus all the foreign investment isn't gonna hurt either

I was getting ready to complain about the traffic on 2920 (Tomball Rd) going towards I-45.
The traffic lights are not sinchronized and each on of them it's green for only exactly 60 seconds.

Now I understand why those lights are so messed up.
Takes me an average of 7 minutes/1 mile every morning on 2920.

BTW, you can see the campus site on Google Maps. It's just west of the I-45 and Hardy tollroad intersection.

This sounds scary. LOL! Both areas are larger than and are comparable to metro areas such as Birmingham, Rochester, Austin, Charlotte, Nashville, and etc.; let you guys tell it, these areas are growing like wildfires. Houston sounds really massive.
