On May 27, Houston Tomorrow’s Jay Blazek Crossley presented “New Interpretations of Houston’s Growth” at the monthly Livable Houston Initiative meeting. He divided the Houston area into 25 different squares - each one the approximate size of the 610 Loop - and compared population and job trends in those districts. In 2005, the area immediately west of the Loop, including the Galleria, ranked first in overall population, followed closely by the Loop itself, while the Loop contained the most jobs. By 2035 the 610 Loop is expected to add more people and jobs than any other district, easily outpacing the city’s fringes. Crossley’s slide presentation is below.
