West Houston Sub-Market Overview

Greater West Houston is a dynamic, high growth 1,000 square mile area in the western portions of the Houston metropolitan area. Population in Greater West Houston in 1970 was under 200,000 and by 1990 reached over 700,000. Jobs jumped from approximately 17,000 in 1970 to 242,000 in 1990. As the Houston region grew, suburban Greater West Houston benefited with new master planned residential developments.
