Greater Heights consists of six neighborhoods: Cottage Crove Houston Heights Norhill Shady Acres Sunset Heights Woodland Heights The Greater Heights Super Neighborhood is centered on the area's largest neighborhood, Houston Heights. Houston Heights, also known as The Heights, was Houston's first master-planned community. They wanted a community where entrepreneurs and workers could live and work within a close community setting. The location for the community was chosen because it had a natural higher elevation than the City of Houston which was seen as advantageous to both industry and residents alike. In 1892, the grand entrance to the community was constructed, known today as Heights Boulevard. The community was also able to support a business district that included a hotel, an opera house, and other public amenities. The community's success of attracting residents and businesses contributed to Houston Heights incorporating as a city in 1891. Houston Heights remained an independent municipality until the end of the 1910s when it was annexed into the City of Houston. Today, being close to downtown Houston and the easy access to major freeways, keeps the neighborhoods in Greater Heights in high demand. The demand for housing is leading to the redevelopment of some areas, while other areas are experiencing the rehabilitation of the older housing stock. It is a very attractive part of town for everyone with their focus on business and personal living space.
