An East End ‘River Walk’ Development In Houston Is In The Works

A multi-phase development is underway at East River, where builders hope to transform the area into a walkable, livable waterside residency.

The area, as laid out in the developer’s 18-page brochure, is a central local less than a mile from downtown, neighboring East Downtown, Second Ward, and Buffalo Bayou Park. Through a network of trails, green spaces, and plazas, developers hope to seamlessly weave the development into the city’s framework.

“We are really focused on creating a very walkable, inviting, outdoor environment in all our project. There will also be 360 multi-family units,” Anna Deans of Midway told abc13.

Along with a variety of housing options, the East River master-planned community will include a variety of office spaces, restaurants, galleries, national and local retailers.

According to Deans, the area did not flood during Hurricane Harvey: “While it seems counterintuitive being located on the bayou, it is actually high and dry.”

Developers plan to break ground on the multi-phase, years-long project this summer.
