This comes off as a little needlessly accusatory, FYI. 

 

Anyway, to settle the population density of Houston here's an interactive map, from 2014.

Man, that map really, really hates single lot homes. I checked where my rents live, it doesn't even have a color and its inside beltway 8. I guess I never realized how inefficient those types of developments are. West U and the other more single lot home areas definitely fit the "low" category. Kinda telling that the map loves that part of Montrose and the museum district close to the park.  

 

If they update that map Q2 of 2020, I think Midtown and the whole of Montrose will look very different.

If you were trying to include the densest population areas you obviously don't know the city well .... in fact you chose some of the least densely populated  areas in town  (downtown, west Eado, Hermann Park and the TMC)  outside of 'refinery row'.  Are you from Houston?

 

I was specifically using the areas that Texasota said that I quoted them on in my post.

The primary pockets in DT that have established pedestrian activity are Discovery Green/Convention Center, Main Street (i.e., JW Marriott/Finn Hall), and Market Square Park (i.e., Niko-Nikos/Franks/Barnaby's).  

 

Where do you see the next DT "pedestrian pocket" evolving?IMG_8684.jpeg.0996d4aceeb83fdc8f5c2ca78124d40b.jpeg

 

in and around Jones Plaza always has pedestrian traffic, but it has always had pedestrians. and they are fundamentally different than the pedestrian traffic of which you are referencing, typically, they are pedesting from their car to a show.

So nice to see what the city has accomplished since I've been away. Can't wait to visit in early March.
