Super Neighborhood 4 - Fairbanks / Northwest crossing
NAME: Fairbanks / Northwest Crossing
MAYOR’S ASSISTANCE OFFICE: Northwest
CONTACT AND MEETING INFORMATION:
LOCATION: Fairbanks Northwest Crossing is a combination of rural land use and scattered housing and high density urban development that followed the construction of the Northwest Freeway.
COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY: Many garden apartment complexes are scattered through and around the edge of the Northwest Crossing office and retail development. Prior to the opening of the freeway which bisects the area, access to Houston was provided by the Hempstead Highway, which still is lined with a combination of aging retail developments, light industrial facilities and agricultural service businesses.
