New Homes in Southwest Houston, TX

Southwest Houston is a diverse region located around Beltway 8 and Highway 6 outside of Interstate 10 just 15 to 25 minutes away from Houston’s City Center. It consists of a mixture of low income as well as upper-class neighborhoods. Originally when one referred to Southwest Houston, they would be referring to the following older neighborhoods: Alief, Fondren Southwest, Meyerland, Sharpstown and Westbury but the region has developed and there are more neighborhoods, each with its own distinct character and feel.

There are over 40 builders who operate in the Houston area as well as contractors who have done a considerable amount of work in Southwest Houston neighborhoods like Bellaire, South Side Place and West University Place.

There are mid-income condominium complexes as well as stately homes that have been built in the region over the years. A lot of Southwest Houston consists of little cities within cities or “islands” that have their own city governments, their own police departments and attract certain types of people. West University Place is one of those island cities located inside Houston’s iconic Beltway 8 loop just a few blocks from Rice University and a few minutes walk from Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. This particular neighborhood has undergone a renaissance with most of the old 20th Century homes making way for newer, more modern styled homes.

Bellaire lies just west of West University Place and is considered to be a more upscale neighborhood, as is Southside place. Housing styles range from ranch styled houses priced from the upper $400s to Tudor, Mediterranean stucco styles with varying bed and bath counts.

Southwest Houston’s school system falls under Houston Independent School District. There are several privately run schools in Southwest Houston like St. Thomas' Episcopal School and Beth Yeshurun Day School in Meyerland. The Robert M. Beren Academy, Episcopal High School. Corpus Christi Catholic School, Westbury Christian School and a considerable number of Charter schools.

The area is also a thriving economic center in Houston. Rice Epicurean Markets have built their corporate offices in the area. Each of the island cities located in the region offers employment opportunities. For instance, the city of Bellaire is where Chevron runs a 33-acre campus. There is also a shopping district located within the region known as Rice Village. The 300-acre campus stretches over ten city blocks and offers a myriad of retail shops.

The local, government-run Marian Park and Community Center has an indoor gymnasium, volleyball court and meeting rooms. There are outdoor amenities, which include an outdoor basketball courts, sports field and a quarter mile bicycle trail. There are old and new master planned communities that offer a country club style like Braeburn Country Club Estates.
