Houston’s Greenspoint District is strategically positioned and globally connected, providing domestic and international companies a convenient and cost-effective area to locate their business, as well as access to a highly trained workforce. The District’s proximity to the Gulf of Mexico and central U.S. location cut days and dollars in the movement of products and supplies. These benefits have attracted a diverse mix of companies to Greenspoint, including industry leaders in manufacturing, healthcare, energy, technology, logistics, and distribution.

Strategic Roadways Ease Drive Times
Road infrastructure in the Greenspoint District is ideal for business. The area’s epicenter sits at the crossroads of Interstate 45 (extends north to Dallas) and the Sam Houston Parkway (runs east/west and encircles Houston with a 92-mile loop). The Greenspoint District is convenient to other critical north-south corridors, including U.S. 290, Hardy Toll Road, Interstate 69, and State Highway 99.

International Airport and Seaport Widen Market Area
George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) boasts 700 daily departures and is located six miles from the District. IAH provides nonstop services to 116 U.S. destinations and nearly 70 direct flights to international destinations. IAH offers more daily flights to Mexico than any other U.S. airport.

The Port of Houston is a key logistical asset located just 22 miles from the Greenspoint District via the Sam Houston Tollway. The Port of Houston is the first ranked U.S. port in terms of foreign tonnage, as well as the largest Texas port and the largest container port on the Gulf Coast of the United States.

Educated Professionals Call Houston Home
With more than 9.1 million workers, Texas has the nation’s second-largest civilian labor force, and Houston continues to lead the state in job growth. Situated on Houston’s north side, the Greenspoint District provides access to 1.2 million qualified job candidates within a 30-minute drive time. Sixty percent of that working population is between the ages of 30 and 54; and 60 percent of current Greenspoint workers have attended college or received a degree, outpacing both Texas and the U.S. Strategic location and global connections make the Greenspoint District ideal when considering a U.S. location. District staff can offer site selection assistance and governmental guidance regarding incentives, taxes, permitting, and more. Additional support is available from the District’s International Advisory Council comprised of immigration attorneys, investors, and foreign nationals successfully doing business in Houston.
