  • Talk about imposing and obnoxious. That cross is just ridiculous. Houston needs more strict zoning codes for cross setback and height requirements.

  • Sure, that’s what Jesus would do.

  • So the Heights is not a hot neighborhood but Baytown is? GREAT! Maybe I can use that to fight my 100K home value increase. Because the brains at Houstonia said so. (BTW this same Houstonia magazine article said the average Heights home was 210K, which was valued less than Alief.) I just renewed my subscription to them, I didn’t realize I was getting Mad Magazine in exchange.

  • I am not religious, but I don’t have any problem with that cross thing. It’s no Touchdown Jesus.

  • Seems like the list of hottest neighborhoods may have been influenced by some developer money. How is Bridgeland on the list when they are just now releasing some lots to builders after almost a year with no development because of permitting issues? How are Spring Branch, Shady Acres and Garden Oaks/Oak Forest not on the list but Baytown and Pearland are? Aren’t these not neighborhoods but cities?

  • Oops…Last sentence of my comment should have read – Aren’t these cities, not neighborhoods?

  • I think if you look at last years article on the 25 hottest neighborhoods, this latest piece is sort of an update to that.

  • “New construction in Bellaire starts in the mid-$400ks”

    LOL… somebody show me where that is!
