“Gulfton Super Neighborhood is located just outside of Loop 610, south of US 59 in Southwest Houston. Gulfton is a culturally diverse, international community with over 50 languages spoken and is home to 40,000 residents. Although it includes two small areas of single-family homes, its large apartment complexes dominate the area’s landscape along with scattered commercial and light industrial uses. Most of Gulfton was originally developed as a rural subdivision called Westmoreland Farms. The large acreage parcels and widely-spaced grid pattern of roads made it possible for very large apartment complexes to be built in the area starting in the 1960s.
Often described as the Ellis Island of current time, Gulfton is the most densely populated community in Houston, with about 90 apartment complexes with more than 15,000 units and 71 percent Hispanic residents including immigrants from Mexico and Central America. Although traditionally a Salvadoran and Mexican neighborhood, many immigrants have begun coming from different Latin-American and Middle Eastern countries.
Gulfton is known for its compassion to help new comers into the country, city and area. Gulfton is home to many schools and agencies that provides resources and services to the community.”
