Overview of Sharpstown

Rent an apartment in Sharpstown, Houston, TX, and you'll be part of a vibrant, urban "edge" city. This cross between a suburb and cosmopolitan community is on the southwest edge of Houston. It offers a variety of housing options as well as commercial and retail businesses and a modern urban mix of people.

The community got its start in the mid-1950s. Developer Frank Sharp, from whom the area derived its name, created of the country's first master planned community centered around the automobile. His plan included homes, schools, shopping and recreational areas. Launched in 1955, it was completed in 1961. Although common today, this type of community development was unusual at the time. As part of his vision, Sharp donated land for construction of the Southwest Freeway, also know as State Highway 59, to give Sharpstown easy access to Downtown Houston.

In 2005, the Greater Sharpstown Management District was created to more closely oversee the area. The district includes other neighborhoods in addition to Sharpstown, such as parts of New Chinatown, Little Saigon, Bellaire and others.

The neighborhood mall is PlazAmericas. It features more than 100 stores, dining, entertainment and an 83,000 square foot "Mercado" filled with numerous small shops offering unique items and services. The mall originally opened in 1961 to coincide with Sharpstown's development. It was Houston's first enclosed and air conditioned mall. It has been renovated several times, most recently in 2010-2011. The mall serves as a community gathering place with live entertainment stages, a play area for kids and a family lounge.

The area also has Houston-operated public parks, including Sharpstown Park and Golf Course, an 18-hole public course that was at one time part of the Sharpstown Country Club.
