Here’s a plan that looks to plug in to Metro’s still-under-construction Southeast Line and redo about 8 blocks along Scott St. in the Third Ward between UH and TSU. Though the plan, drawn up by LAI Design Group and dubbed “University Place Redevelopment,” is provisional, it appears to have in mind something like what the rendering above shows: A reshaped streetscape on Scott St. that would combine apartments, restaurants, shops, offices, and community buildings.
The first phase appears to call for a strip center facing Scott between Holman and Reeves, with 289 1- and 2-bedroom apartments and a parking garage in the rear:
It appears that much of the development would happen on the other side of Scott St. from the new UH football stadium, still under construction:
Additional phases of the development, shown in the map directly above as bumping into the Yates High School campus, call for a large grocery store, a new library, hotels, townhouses, and “community and educational facilities.”
