Neighborhoods Washington Corridor

Washington Corridor

The Washington Corridor is, in the terminology of the 1960s, a “Happening.” Lacking legally-established boundaries, the Washington Corridor is nevertheless one of Houston’s best known and most popular locations. Recent redevelopment and new businesses have caused the Corridor to flourish with sleek new townhouses, condominium developments, single-family homes, and impressively upscale restaurants and clubs.

Located in the heart of Houston’s historic West End, the Washington Corridor spreads north and south along Washington Avenue from Houston Avenue to Westcott Street. For much of Houston’s existence, Washington Avenue was the gateway to the city. Although the business of early Houston revolved around Main Street and the shipment of goods was through Allen’s Landing, the flow of cotton and agricultural foods from the countryside depended on access to the farmers market on Market Square via what was then Washington Road and the Preston Avenue bridge. Washington Avenue may have been the first paved street in Houston and, in the 20th century, served as both US 290 and US 90 for many years. Park-like Glenwood Cemetery, a fixture on Washington Avenue, was established in 1871. One of Houston’s first fire stations was built at 1106 Washington Avenue in 1892 and a second was constructed in 1903 at 1702 Washington and Ash Place.

The Old Sixth Ward Historic District, Rice Military and Camp Logan and are linked by the Washington Corridor; Memorial Park anchors its western terminus; and Houston Heights and Woodland Heights stretch northward from its northern edge. Neighborhoods interfacing with the Washington Corridor are appreciating in value with price points for new and recent construction as well as restored and updated historic structures ranging from the mid-$300,000s to $800,000.
