Houston Area Submarkets

As one of the largest geographic business regions in the country, Houston has multiple districts and submarket areas. Many of these tend to focus on a handful of key industries or job types. Some are attractive because of their proximity to large populations of talent while others are in close proximity to major industry catalysts such as the port or NASA. Discover which submarkets might be right for your company.

When it comes to total population and workforce, the Katy area is one of the fastest growing submarkets in the Houston region. Located 30 minutes west of Downtown along the I-10 corridor, Katy has proven attractive for major distribution centers and manufacturing operations as well as a thriving crossroads for retailers. Couple that with a relatively low cost of living, excellent public schools, and abundant and growing housing options and it's clear why Katy rates high on many lists of most desirable cities.
