The Edison: Performing Arts-Based Mixed-Use in Missouri City


Recommended Posts

7-Acre site in on West Fuqua is about to change.  Formerly the shopping center with the Kroger as the anchor tenant.

Project includes a 126-unit affordable workforce housing community, 400-seat Larry V. Green Main Stage Theatre, 33,000 Sq. Ft. of retail development space, and a pre-kindergarten program.

HCDD recommends Council approval of an Ordinance authorizing an $8,000,000.00 CDBG DR-17 forgivable loan to Edison Arts Foundation, a non-profit partner of DWR Development Group, for the new construction of a mixeduse development that includes Edison Lofts, a 126-unit mixed income rental housing community. (District K)

 

Renderings and more info forthcoming.

I assume it's this: https://www.virtualbx.com/construction-preview/fort-bend-houston-edison-performing-arts-center-to-break-ground-spring-2021/

 

This is definitely an improvement, but we've gotta stop using mixed-use for every project that has multiple uses when those uses are clearly segregated. The housing here is 90s garden-style apartments with separate parking on essentially a separate lot.

 

Now, they're not showing the site plan for the Performing Arts Center portion, so maybe that will be better, but the "lofts" are the epitome of late 20th century single-use thinking.
