Super Neighborhood 74 - Park Place

Your super neighborhood at-a-glance:

Park Place was an independent municipality before 1927 when it voluntarily consolidated with the City of Houston. At that time, Broadway and Park Place Boulevards were lined with large homes. Most of these were replaced with apartments and small businesses after deed restrictions in the area lapsed. (Some areas in the wooded setting adjacent to Sims Bayou are still deed restricted.) Many side streets in the community are lined with large pecan trees, some of which date from the 1920s. Industrial development occupies the northeastern corner of the community, which is close to the Houston Ship Channel. In recent years, several aging apartment complexes have been converted into condominiums.
