Memorial (960 x 450)

The Memorial area of Houston, Texas, United States is west of Downtown Houston and northwest of Uptown Houston. It is bounded on the south by Buffalo Bayou, on the east by Interstate 610, on the west by Texas State Highway 6, and extends just north of the Katy Freeway to Westview and ends at the Memorial Villages.

The northeast area near I-10 and Texas State Highway Beltway 8 of Memorial City is home to Memorial City Mall, the newer, more upscale Town & Country Village lifestyle center, and the mega-development project known as CityCentre, plus the emerging edge city around them.

The upscale and revived Memorial City Mall is located in the area. The area is also served by the Town and Country Village and adjacent CityCentre lifestyle center that are sought to replace the now defunct Town & Country Mall. Katharine Shilcutt of the Houston Press said that “Memorial is still in many ways a sweetly sleepy suburb” despite the construction of CityCentre and expansion and redevelopment at Memorial City Mall.
