New Hardy Yards Pedestrian and Cyclist Flourishes Show Off Brownfield Railroad Ties

Hardy Yards, Near Northside, Houston, 77026

Not many signs of the buildings yet — but Chris Andrews notes the new benches, sidewalks, and railyard-themed signage recently installed in the formerly-a-railyard Hardy Yards site, along some initial roadways laid out for that planned mixed-use redevelopment complex. The signage above, complete with what appear to be segments of decorative rail track, is at the corner of now-extended Chapman and Leona streets.  Here’s a look at a new industrial-chic bike rack installed nearby, with a bonus glimpse of a few of the warehouses along parallel-ish Burnett St. visible to the north:

From the south side of Leona St., here’s the Burnett Transit Center station, where those Hardy Yards letters are located (when they’re not out for post-collision repair):

Trash cans, benches, fire hydrants, and greenery, all in place:

  • what a great view. almost as good as the one from the police officers memorial.

  • why can’t this ENTIRE area be like the palm center redo. Mass Affordable Housing near downtown though?

  • This is so like the Mueller area of Austin – just a big, inviting plain to cram apts and retail into!

  • Reminds me of the Mueller area also.

  • Mueller is I would guess 20 times larger. Oh and they actually built stuff there.

  • Wasn’t this the site of Metro and City of Houston’s proposed intermodal station. The station which would connected Amtrak (and future commuter rail) with light rail and a new bus station. I thought this was the site, but now I make be mistaken.
