Meyerland Area is found on both sides of Brays Bayou at the southwest corner of Loop 610. Its many neighborhoods include Meyerland, Marilyn Estates, Barkley Square and Maplewood. Many institutions of Houston’s Jewish community are found here, including several temples and the Jewish Community Center. The northeast corner of the community includes the redeveloped Meyerland Center retail development. The area was developed beginning in the 1950s. Recently a deteriorated apartment complex was torn down for the construction of new luxury homes, reflecting the continued high demand for homes in the area.
