HTX Real Estate 2013

Ever since two New York speculators, the Allen brothers, founded Houston on a swamp in 1836 and marketed it as "a center of government and commerce" with an "abundance of excellent spring water and enjoying the sea breeze in all its freshness," the Bayou City has been a developer's dream. Our special series, Real Estate Confidential, examines what's happening in the world of real estate in Houston today as the housing market sizzles and building cranes are popping up all over town. Also, CultureMap editor-at-large Shelby Hodge looks at some of the most interesting residences on the market.
