I don't know much about Brazoria County (where Pearland is located) but Fort Bend County codes are fairly strict as far as aesthetics. Inside Sugar Land city limits it's even more so. Probably some of the most strict zoning, if not the most, of the Houston metro.

When this question has been asked before, I've always said Sugar Land is more established than Pearland and this is probably the most notable difference (Sugar Land houses lots of commercial and a few company headquarters). Even though Pearland is slightly closer to downtown Houston (certainly closer than most other Houston outer suburbs), up until more recently it was still considered fairly rural.

I don't care for Sugarland too much so that is why I hate seeing Pearland's West end start to resemble it aesthetically. Yes, I know Sugarland is a nice very suburb with great schools - but I find it boring looking. It all looks so uniform and all the same -- could be anywhere. I like communities with a mix of old and new and where things look different from one another - from neighborhoods to businesses. But that is just my opinion - and everyone views those things differently so it really is a matter of personal preference and taste.
