Houston, TX Economic Overview

Location Photo

Everything is bigger in Texas and Houston is a prime example of this. Located near the Gulf of Mexico in the southeastern part of the Lone Star State, and with a population of 2.3 million, Houston is the most populated city in Texas, and the 4th most populated city in the U.S.

Sprawling over 667 square miles, Houston hosts a broad base of businesses in the energy, manufacturing, transportation, aeronautics and health care industries, and has more Fortune 500 headquarters than any other city in the country. Add to this the nearly 18 million multi-national tourists that visit Houston each year and you can see why the Houston commercial real estate market is a consistent performer year after year.

As the 5th most populated MSA in the U.S., the Houston metropolitan area is known around the world for its oil, natural gas and renewable energy industries, its biomedical research and aeronautics corporations, and is a main manufacturing center of oilfield equipment. The Port of Houston is one of the top 10 largest ports in the world, and with its two international airports and one domestic airport, the Houston area is one of the top U.S. exporting markets, surpassing even New York City.

Houston, TX Commercial Real Estate Market

Key to Houston's economic success is the fact that the city has multiple business districts as centers of employment and commerce.  In addition to the Downtown Houston core, the Uptown, Energy Corridor and the Texas Medical Center business districts of Houston all contribute to the nearly 1.2 billion square feet of office, retail and industrial space in the market.

Downtown Houston commercial district is just under 2 square miles in size and includes the Warehouse, Historic, Ballpark, Skyline, Theater and Medical sub-districts. Over $4 billion has been invested to transform Downtown Houston commercial real estate into a vibrant city center with entertainment venues and efficient mass transit.

The Uptown Houston commercial real estate market, with nearly 23 million square feet of office space, is the 17th largest business district in the U.S. and is home to over 2,000 companies including General Electric, Dow Chemical, Marathon Oil and the Bechtel Corporation.  There are over 5 million square feet of retail space in Uptown Houston and the district is host to The Galleria, the largest shopping center in Texas, along with a multitude of trend-setting stores, eateries and entertainment venues. Clear Lake and Chinatown are known for commercial real estate availability.

The Energy Corridor has historically been one of the strongest Houston office markets and is home to over 300 companies, employing over 94,000 people in total.  With over 26 million square feet of office space, the district is home to the national or international headquarters of BP America, ConocoPhillips and Citgo among many others.  Due to the significant increase in construction, the Corridor has tripled its property value from $600 million to well over $2 billion.

Texas Medical Center district is the largest medical center in the world, with 54 medicine-related hospitals, research centers, medical and nursing schools. Each year, 13,600 heart surgeries are performed, 25,000 babies are delivered and 8 million patients visit.  The District is also home to the Texas Children's Hospital and the MD Anderson Cancer Center, both the world's largest facilities of their type.
