Sharpstown Civic Association
Sharpstown is a diverse collection of long-time and brand new residents. Some of us are Houston born and raised while others came from across the globe to make their home here. What we have in common is the desire for a safe, clean and well maintained community in which to live and raise our families. We want to enjoy our surroundings, know our property is safe and trust our neighbors to take care of their homes as we take care of our own. We want to work with and see results from our community and those representing us.
Super Neighborhood #26
Sharpstown was Houston’s largest development when it was undertaken in the mid-1950s. A prototype for the master planned communities of today, its pattern of middle class homes on curving streets and cul-de-sacs surrounding a shopping mall and country club was widely imitated. Even its problem areas, such as the densely sited and poorly maintained apartments found on Beechnut in the southern part of the community, are examples of what to avoid. In recent years, Asian merchants have moved into empty shopping centers along Bellaire Boulevard and their groceries, restaurants and small shops now thrive. Demand in these areas is strong, resulting in the conversion of warehouses and apartments to meet the demand for retail space.
