The center of the local petrochemical, manufacturing and shipping industries, the area of southeast Houston encompasses the Houston Ship Channel that is lined with oil and chemical plants. The region provides a quality lifestyle for the thousands of skilled laborers and managers.
Farther south, below the Ship Channel is Pasadena, about 18 miles from downtown Houston. This city offers homes from 40 years old to new. Prices range from the $40,000s to more than $1 million.
South of Pasadena lies the Sagemont district, characterized mostly by single-family residences. Homes can be found from the $50,000s to the $150,000s. Green Tee Terrace, an adjoining country club addition, offers custom homes from the $150,000s to $350,000s. Pasadena has a population near 150,000.
