A Sign of EaDo Spread at a Future Fifth Ward Townhome Site

Eado Edge subdivision, Clinton Dr. at Jensen Dr., Fifth Ward, 77020

A reader sends fresh snaps from north of Buffalo Bayou in Fifth Ward, where Urban Living’s long-time cornerside “coming soon” sign at the intersection of Clinton and Jensen has been joined by a more specific banner advertising the planned Eado Edge subdivision. A 2014 replatting created 80 new lots out of the former Standco Industries warehouse complex at 2701 Clinton Dr., which Colliers sold following the oil equipment company’s bankruptcy proceedings a few years prior. The not-yet-townhomes sit across Clinton from the former KBR site bought by Cathexis back in 2012; the currently empty land is also just west of InTown Homes’s Regent Park subdivision.


The Eado Edge lots are currently listed in county records as belonging to Asian Pacific Texas, an entity sharing an address with builder CitySide Homes — though a visit to the  advertised Eado Edge website currently redirects clickers to the Urban Living homepage. Urban Living is also involved with the under-construction Nobility Park townhomes immediately to the north of Regent Park — in the photo below (taken from Clinton Dr. facing north), the Regent townhomes are in beige on the far right, while the boxy brown homes to the left of them are part of Nobility. Nearby Bruce Elementary School is somewhat shielded from view by a stand of trees:

EaDo Creeping North

  • The slimy Eado brand is bound to ooze all the way up to the 10 fwy most likely, and east to Eastwood. The old ward designations won’t be able to hang as tightly as some would like.

  • Wow, you get not 1 but 2 RR tracts next to your TH. The developers give you $10gs, and you still get a refrigerator and washer and dryer. Take my money UL, your devilish marketing geniuses.

  • That is NOT EaDo! That is part of the East End – Revitalized. There is a clear distinction between the historic areas and also the management districts. The original residents around this part of town hate the term EaDo and refer to the area as either the 5th Ward, 2nd Ward or the East End. Have breakfast or lunch at one of the small restaurants along Navigation like Dona Marias or Villa Arcos and the patrons will correct you if you call it anything to do with EaDo.

  • The Heights of Eastern EaDo.

  • The sign is amusing but there is no rail road there.

  • If Urban Living is affiliated with it, beware.

  • @New Home Guy – I agree that this is NOT part of EADO, but this area (north of Buffalo Bayou) is also NOT serviced by the East End management district either. This area is in the lower portion of fifth ward but the residents are looking to differentiate themselves from a generic fifth ward name as well. They have formed an official civic club called East Bayou district.

    I realize that probably no one cares about the names but I just thought I would provide clarification since people were talking about it.
