Greater Northside Chamber of Commerce

Greater Northside Chamber of Commerce Launched in May 2013, the Northside Chamber of Commerce was created to serve as the link between businesses, community and government. The Greater Northside, immediately north of downtown, consists of wood frame homes surrounding commercial properties along North Main and Fulton.

Moody Park is an important gathering place in the center of the community, as is the Davis High School / Marshall Middle School / Carnegie Library complex in the southern part of the community. With the anticipated MetroRail line, traveling downtown from Near Northside will be a quick ride to get to work, a concert or a dinner out. Development of the Greater Northside neighborhood began in the 1880s-1890s with the expansion of the nearby Hardy Rail Yards. With the decrease of rail traffic and increase in suburban development in Houston, the neighborhood began to decline after World War II. A few residents live in the neighborhood that was altered in 1954 by the construction of the Elysian Viaduct. Preservation Texas, an organization dedicated to preserving historic resources in the state of Texas, named the Greater Northside Neighborhood to a list of Texas' most endangered historic places in 2005. The Metropolitan Transit Authority is planning an extension of the METRO light rail system through the neighborhood connecting downtown Houston to the Greater Northside; and ending at Northline Commons/Houston Community College Station.
