ONE OF THE CHALLENGES FOR A MIXED-USE MIDTOWN DEVELOPMENT WAS TO ESTABLISH AN ACTIVE STREET SETTING WITHIN A RATHER COMPACT SITE. THE PROGRAM REQUIRED THE ADDITION OF PARKING COMPLEX TO FACILITATE PROGRAMS HELD AT THE ADJACENT TRINITY CHURCH. WITH DEVELOPMENT SITUATED ALONG TWO BUSY THOROUGHFARES AND HOUSTON’S TRANSIT LINE, THE PROPOSAL ALSO HAD TO ENSURE THAT TRAFFIC FLOW WAS ADEQUATELY MANAGED AND CONCORDANT WITH EXISTING CITY DEVELOPMENTS.
