The East Downtown District was once home to Houston’s original Chinatown. It was a popular area that supported immigrants to the Houston area. It was a thriving community that needed more development to support its growth. The district was supposed to get economic assistance in the 1980s, however that never materialized. Because of that, in the 1990s many of the businesses left and Chinatown relocated to southwest Houston. In the 2000s, the area received a boost of economic investments and a new name. It was rebranded as EaDo and artists moved into the community, and even a new stadium was built. Today, the EaDo district is flourishing and attracting new residents and businesses. With a number of single family homes in East Downtown Houston, TX, it’s a great place to set down roots.
