Rice Military: a Community

By Angelique Daniel Subscribe to RSS | February 24th 2012 | Views:

Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas, and the fourth-largest city in the United States. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the city had a population of 2.1 million people within an area of 579 square miles (1,500 km2). Houston is the seat of Harris County and the economic center of Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, which is the sixth-largest metropolitan area in the United States, with nearly 6 million people.

Rated as a global city, Houston's economy has a broad industrial base in energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation. It is also leading in health care sectors and building oilfield equipment; only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters. The Port of Houston ranks first in the United States in international waterborne tonnage handled and second in total cargo tonnage handled. The city has a population from various ethnic and religious backgrounds and a large and growing international community. It is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits, which attract more than 7 million visitors a year to the Museum District. Houston has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theater District and offers year-round resident companies in all major performing arts.

Rice Military is one of the liveliest and most up-an-coming neighborhoods in Houston. The boundaries of the Rice Military neighborhood are Washington Avenue on the north, Memorial Drive on the south, Shepherd Drive on the east, and Westcott Street on the west. Rice Military, which is inside the 610 Loop, is next to Memorial Park. The term "Military" is a reference to the neighborhood's bordering of what was once Camp Logan, a World War I-era U.S. Army training camp.

Rice Military combines the convenience of city living with the beauty of one of the country's largest urban parks. Over the last few years, Rice Military Homes have become popular investments, and its communities are fast becoming neighborhoods of choice for young, urban professionals and affluent home seekers. Close to downtown business centers and Galleria shopping, Rice Military and Memorial Park/Camp Logan are exciting and charming communities.

The setting of Rice Military is one of urban energy, made more fascinating by the combination of high-end modern homes, historic sites, and the 1,500-acre park that anchors these communities. Memorial Park itself is the main local venue for recreation. Similar to other urban parks, the site features trails, tennis courts, playing fields and open spaces. Unlike other parks, Memorial Park also has a renowned 600-acre golf course and an arboretum and nature center. For locals, the park is both a retreat and a source of invigoration.

Rice Military homes include condomiminiums with spacious rooms and garage areas. People who are looking to buy their first home will be delighted by the vibrant atmosphere of this place. The neighborhood is located near the active nightlife of downtown Houston. If you want a starter house, you may think of your Rice Military home as more than just a starter house but a house to prepare for the future.
