Your super neighborhood at-a-glance:

Ellington/South Belt is a part of southeast Houston, located at the intersection of the Sam Houston Parkway (Beltway 8) and the Gulf Freeway (I-45 S). Ellington Field, a general aviation airport that was once a military training field, is at the eastern edge of the community. Almeda Mall is the center of a large retail and commercial district that spreads across both sides of the Gulf Freeway. Some of the older subdivisions in the community include Beverly Hills, Gulf Palms, and the Genoa townsite. Later developments include Kirkwood, Sagemont, and Scarsdale. The City of Houston annexed Sycamore Valley, another subdivision in the area, in 1994. The completion of Beltway 8 has stimulated residential and commercial development throughout the community. New home construction is continuing in the western subdivision of Bridgegate.
