If you’re not very familiar with Houston’s neighborhoods, you might think of Energy Corridor as one big energy company the first time you hear about it. Located along Katy Freeway, Energy Corridor is in fact one of the most affluent neighborhoods in West Houston. It’s home to several Fortune 500 companies (most of which dabble in the energy sector), thus the name.
Energy Corridor is known as one of the largest business districts in all of Houston. Aside from multi-billion dollar firms, the district is home to a wide selection of real estate, along with a variety of recreational and entertainment options. Great schools, public and private, are just a stone’s throw away.
Home buyers are drawn to Energy Corridor for its convenience — it’s located in close proximity to everything you can ever need to sustain a balanced city life. Bear Creek Pioneers Park and George Bush Park are nearby, while Houston’s downtown locations are just a short drive away.
It seems like everybody wants to live in Energy Corridor — the district is one of the fastest growing real estate markets in Houston. The supply of homes in the area meet the demands of various home buyers, as the neighborhood is home to a wide range of housing options. Take your pick among condos, townhomes, single-family residences, and luxury apartments.
With the real estate market booming, investing in Energy Corridor real estate is a good idea. Compared to neighborhoods in the Inner Loop, homes for sale in the Energy Corridor are considerably more affordable. Take advantage of this, as property values are consistently on the rise.
Energy Corridor is also home to several luxury gated communities, such as Lakes of Parkway and Parkway at Eldridge. The former boasts plenty of outdoor recreation and well-appointed luxury new constructions. Meanwhile, Parkway at Eldridge offers a great collection of new single-family homes and townhouses in timeless designs.
There are several public schools located in Energy Corridor, either managed by the Houston ISD, the Spring Branch ISD, or the Katy ISD. Some of these schools are:
- Barbara Bush Elementary
- Spring Forest Middle School
- West Briar Middle School
- Stratford High School
- Nottingham Elementary School
- Maurice L. Wolfe Elementary School
There are also a number of private schools in Energy Corridor, such as Memorial Private High School, Primrose School, Yorkshire Academy, West Side Montessori School, and John Paul II Catholic School.
