Airport access, multiple access routes, easy access to the Port of Houston and a host of hotels and conference centers heighten north Houston’s appeal as a center of commerce, a fact not lost on the many companies which have located here. Among those on the lengthening list are Chevron Pipeline, ExxonMobil, and Hewlett-Packard. For those considering a move, with a large variety of developed and undeveloped land, businesses have many prime sites from which to choose. Additionally, office lease space in north Houston offers not only diversity, but also some of the lowest rental rates in the country.
Commercial activity and properties in Northwest Houston are widely distributed geographically. Following explosive population growth caused by new residential subdivisions, retail demand prompted extensive retail development. In turn, the new commercial activity produced demand for service and office buildings. Many office complexes throughout the area provide not only convenience but scenic, tree-shaded environments.
Willowbrook Mall, The Vintage, Springwoods Village, and many other shopping centers are conveniently located throughout the northwest area. Just 5 minutes north on Interstate 45 sits The Woodlands Mall and Market Street with access to resort-style shopping & dining.
One of the greatest assets of Northwest Houston for the company or organization which may wish to construct its own facilities is the existence of excellent business parks. We have available within the area literally thousands of acres of developed land with streets, storm sewers, and all utilities in place, ready for building. Deed-restricted business
parks are available for industrial buildings, distribution facilities, service and research centers, office buildings and apartments. In some locations, developers are ready to provide turn-key build-to-suit construction, including buildings for lease or sale. For more information or to receive a business relocation packet, please contact the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce at ChamberInfo@HoustonNWChamber.org.
The scope of housing choices in Houston’s Great Northwest is broad. Virtually all types of housing are found within the area including new custom homes, new production/builder homes, townhouses, apartments, rental homes, and homes on the resale market.
Health and wellness are of the highest priority in Northwest Houston. This is evidenced by the large number of hospitals, emergency and specialty clinics, assisted living and senior care facilities and associated health services. Additionally, there are fitness and health food centers in every part of the region and they are all well-utilized.
