Energy Corridor Creating A Woonerf

Recommended Posts


The area known as Grisby Square in the Energy Corridor will receive a $300,000 upgrade through a pilot program initiated and funded by the Energy Corridor District.

The Energy Corridor District’s Woonerf Streetscape Project, which broke ground Oct. 13, will focus on improving pedestrian and cyclist safety as well as the aesthetics of the area along Fortsmith Street between Stafford and Addicks Howell streets, which is known for its large live oak trees. The project is slated to be completed in February.




For those of you not familiar with the EC, this is an area of 3 or 4 blocks of houses/buildings turned to restaurants under a canopy of large oak trees.  Location is southeast corner of Hwy 6 and I10.  As far as I know, this may be the first woonerf in the Houston area, other than those created as part of a town center concept like City Centre.
