Midtown was a fashionable residential district before World War I. However, encroaching commercial development and heavy traffic sent high-income homeowners in search of quieter neighborhoods. The area became a mix of old homes, small apartment buildings and low-rise commercial buildings. For many years, the only stability in the community was a number of surviving churches and the Houston Community College campus in the old San Jacinto High School building. A Vietnamese business district has arisen along Milam, Webster, Fannin and San Jacinto. Spurred by the Midtown TIRZ, luxury apartment / townhome construction has begun in the western edge of the community and in areas close to Baldwin Park.
