The City of Houston defines the area of Memorial (Close-In Memorial) as "the Memorial Super Neighborhood." It's situated west of Downtown, northwest of Uptown, and south of Spring Branch. Straddling Buffalo Bayou, the Memorial area is known for its forested communities and diverse residential architecture. Some dense mixed-use districts including CityCenter, Town & Country Village, and Memorial City call this area home as well. To the west, a significant section of the Energy Corridor, a vital business district containing some of the world's biggest energy corporations, overlaps along Eldridge Parkway. Memorial was named after Memorial Drive, a major east-west road in Houston that goes for 20 miles from Interstate 45 west to State Highway 6. Before Houston annexed it, Memorial was nothing but a rural area comprised of large country estates and farmland. With the final portion of Memorial annexed in the 1980s, the area began to experience a massive boom in the population that lasted well into the 1990s. Between 1999 and 2003, the Memorial City Mall was renovated, costing over $600 million to complete. In addition to that, the Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center (often called "The Medical Center" for short) along with the newly renovated mall became anchors of a massive mixed-use district that features apartments, condos, hotels, and multiple office towers. Most of the regions in and around Memorial are walkable, as per design.
