Buckhead Investment Partners to Go Before Houston City Council
Buckhead Investment Partners has announced that it will appear before the Houston City Council to ask that the original uses designed into their proposed building at 1717 Bissonnet be allowed. These elements included a small specialty retail shop, a wellness spa, a handful of private offices and an outdoor plaza that has been replaced by a driveway - all designed to foster pedestrian, not vehicular, traffic in the area. Exhibits for the Houston City Council hearing may be found here.
This exciting redevelopment will be among the first residential buildings in Texas to receive a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification – the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance “green” buildings. Pedestrian-friendly and transit-oriented, 1717 Bissonnet will provide those who enjoy living in an exceptional inner-city area an alternative housing option that doesn’t already exist and will cater to a “walkable” urban lifestyle that allows more people to rely less upon their cars and live closer to their work and Houston’s world-class cultural and entertainment venues. A mere10-minute walk from two METRO Rail lines and located on one of the top five most utilized METRO bus lines, 1717 Bissonnet is also within walking or cycling distance of Rice University, the Texas Medical Center, all of Houston’s major museums, Hermann Park (with its zoo, outdoor theater and golf course) and the Rice Village shopping area. On-site “life-style” amenities such as a restaurant, shop, private offices, wellness spa and a dynamic pedestrian plaza will serve both area and building residents, who will enjoy unmatched views over an extensive tree canopy of Downtown, the Medical Center and the Galleria/Post Oak.
