Individual communities within the North Channel area are located in Harris County and include all of the unincorporated areas of Sheldon, Channelview, North Shore and part of Humble. We also serve the cities of Galena Park and Jacinto City, and a small portion of the City of Houston.
Residents take pride in their caring community coupled with big-city conveniences. Commuting to downtown Houston for business or entertainment takes fewer than 20 minutes, less time than from any other section of Harris County. Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, is east of downtown, and the Toyota Center, home of the Rockets, as well as the George R. Brown Convention Center, are located on the east side of Houston. These venues are easily accessed from the communities that make up the North Channel area. NRG Stadium, site of Houston Texans home games and the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo, is convenient as well.
The Harris County Toll Road system connects the area with the entire greater Houston area, providing convenient access to other major employment, entertainment and retail destinations.
Within the North Channel area, commercial growth has kept pace with overall community growth as evidenced by new shopping opportunities ranging from large department and grocery stores to small local merchants. A diverse retail environment provides unlimited goods and services to the community.
