Since the early 1800s, Houston’s Northside has been a diverse and culturally rich part of our city’s heritage. From the expansion of the Hardy Rail Yards near the turn of the last century through the development of Lindale Park in 1937 to the modern-day addition of the METROrail line along Fulton, our community has remained strong with a deep sense of pride for those “From Northside.”
Thanks to this renewed interest in Northside, both commercial and residential developments have been springing up all over the area. Northside Village, a modern but affordable housing development, transformed abandoned commercial land into an appealing new neighborhood. The addition of popular music venue White Oak Music Hall and the proposed redevelopment of the Airline Farmer’s Market has brought renewed excitement and interest.
We believe there has never been a better time to invest in Northside and start or move your business here. More and more, developers of all stripes are flocking to our community and making it home as we have for nearly two centuries. From the building of housing and planned communities to commercial investment in local businesses, while maintaining our unique cultural and historic character, the time is NOW to invest in Northside!

I feel that I can honestly state that Northside is now simply one of the most exciting communities in our city in which to be involved in! The constants throughout the near 150 years that this historic community has been in existence are its unique senses of identity and pride. "The Northside Way!" Business owners, developers, investors and residents from different regions of this city, state, country and even the world are feeling and witnessing these senses and want to be a part of it.
