Houston Southeast neighborhoods included in Innovation Corridor
Greater Houston Partnership touts Houston’s four-mile-long “Innovation Corridor,” as “the intersection of industry and innovation.” Four of Houston Southeast’s seven neighborhoods, in the Innovation Corridor, will include Museum Park, Texas Medical Center, Hermann Park, the Universities (University of Houston and Texas Southern University). Linked by light-rail, bike lanes, and sidewalks, the Innovation Corridor offers easy access to key industry and institutional players as well as an array of amenities to appeal to high-tech workers. “Millennial-friendly” attractions include a variety of housing, dining, and recreational options.
“What’s remarkable is how concentrated all of this is in a four-mile-long area,” said Bob Harvey, president and CEO GHP told The Houston Chronicle in October.
Currently, more than 200 other cities are vying to recruit companies like Amazon, the nation’s second-largest employer and $430 billion industry leader. Houston’s diversity, can-do spirit, neighborliness, low cost of living, quality of life and global access fosters a prime business climate for start-ups, and a young workforce in a city of 2.3 million.
