In Houston, Texas, there is a “Super Neighborhood” known as Mid-West, and it is an excellent place to buy a home in one of the nation’s most diverse cities. Mid-West consists of the area on both sides Westheimer Road, between Gessner Road and Chimney Rock, beginning west of the Galleria. On the south, it is bounded by Westpark Tollway, and on the north Mid-West is bounded by Buffalo Bayou. The Galleria District borders it on the east and the Westchase Development District borders it on the west. It is this fabulous location in proximity to multiple significant points of interest that make Mid-West such an excellent choice for prospective homebuyers in Houston.
Prior to 1950 the area that now comprises Mid-West was primarily rural with mostly unpaved farm roads. It was the increasing commercial development along arterial streets such as Westheimer Road that brought new businesses and residents to the area. In and around the Galleria shopping and business district there are now many high-density residential developments. Several of these neighborhoods are comprised of single-family homes in traditional styles constructed between the 1960s and 1980s. A few of those areas are being redeveloped and the original homes are being torn down and replaced with new, larger residences. This redevelopment has made Mid-West real estate quite diverse. There are older homes and new construction in Mid-West, as well as smaller and larger homes, and homes with traditional and more contemporary styles.
Neighborhoods within Mid-West include Briarbend, Buffalo Bayou Bend, Charnwood, Hammersmith, Piney Point, Stoney Brook Townhomes, Tanglewilde, Westmont, Woodbridge, and Woodlake Forest. Nearly 57,000 people live in the Mid-West area, where businesses are served by the West Houston Chamber of Commerce. Adding to the area’s appeal, the students residing in Mid-West are served by the Houston Independent School District which operates Robert E. Lee High School, a charter school, and several elementary schools in the area.
