  • For neighborhood of the year: Southampton

    For best project cancellation or delay: Ashby high rise

    For the same reason: Southampton and the various contingent smaller neighborhoods are unique in Houston, in that they are true neighborhoods touching the inner city. With modest to larger homes, quiet tree-lined streets, children on bikes, older walkers, neighbors visiting, and dog-walkers, its entire environment would be permanently impaired by the looming Ashby high rise project. The traffic created would destroy the uniqeness of this Houston neighborhood jewel.

  • Thanks to no zoning, Houston has precious few historic, unique neighborhoods. Boulevard Oaks is one. And now comes Ashby Highrise to trash it with a 23-story highrise and all the noise, traffic and congestion it would introduce to these peaceful, tree-lined streets. They’d trash the very uniqueness that probably attracted them in the first place.

  • I vote for Southampton
