Since the 1980’s Houston as a city has been growing rapidly to reach it’s current position of fourth largest U.S city by population. Houston has become a popular choice for young entrepreneurs, as it has a stable job market, diverse cultures, and affordable housing. In years past, the city was ranked number one by Forbes for paycheck worth, and was included in Forbes list of “Best Places for Business and Careers.”
As shown in this timelapse graphic created using Google Timelapse, Houston has undergone some massive infrastructure growth. This growth is not only obvious in the heart of the city of Houston, but also the surrounding metropolitan areas, such as Sugar Land and Baytown. In 1984 you can notice that Houston already had decent infrastructure, but was heavily expanded on to accommodate for the rapid population growth, as is evident in 2016. Houston is continuously proving itself to be one of the most attractive places to live in the United States.
