DATE RECOGNIZED:

STATUS: Inactive

COUNCIL DISTRICT: I

MAYOR’S ASSISTANCE OFFICE: Central

CONTACT AND MEETING INFORMATION:


LOCATION: Gulfgate/Pine Valley is a collection of neighborhoods inside Loop 610 south of the Gulf Freeway. It is criss-crossed by older highways, such as Telephone Road and the city’s first by-pass, the Old Spanish Trail/Wayside combination.

COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY: These highways, along with a major rail line and Brays Bayou, divide the area into a number of discrete neighborhoods. The largest of these, Pine Valley, Freeway, and Riverview consist of single family homes surrounded by light industrial buildings and warehouses. Gulfgate, one of Houston’s first malls, located on the eastern edge of the area, is being completely redeveloped as part of a tax increment reinvestment zone to revitalize what had been a failing retail district.
