LOCATION: Fondren Gardens is a corner of southwest Houston initially developed as an opportunity for Houstonians to work in the city and live in the country. Its large lots were sold to individuals who built modest homes at various times over the decades. Once isolated on the edge of Harris County, accessible only by South Main and what was a narrow Fondren Road, it is now bordered by the South Belt and accessible by West Orem Boulevard as well.

COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY: Further development and redevelopment of this community is a likely outcome of this improved accessibility.
