Southside Place

The beginning of Southside Place traces back to 1924, when E. L. Crain developed the community with Colonial, Spanish and English bungalows. Chinese tallows recommended by Teas Nursery became a trademark of the neighborhood.

Builders used to shy away from Southside Place because it didn't have the name recognition of neighboring West University Place. Southside lots were also larger and more expensive than West U. Now new construction has spilled over and those roomy lots are a strong selling point.

Bordered on three sides by West University Place, The main part of the city is rectangular in shape. In the center is a park with a clubhouse, tennis courts, softball field and swimming pool. New streets and curbs complete the tidy look of the community. The streets are even in alphabetical order. The city comes complete with its own police and fire departments to patrol and protect its streets. Police are particularly vigilant in patroling the stretch of Bellaire Boulevard that falls within their jurisdiction, and speeders along this main throughfare are not tolerated.
