East Downtown Gateway Experience
The EDGE Project is an improvement initiative of the nearly 2.5-mile Pease Street corridor leading into Downtown Houston. The Pease Street exit from I-45 has recently been reconstructed by the Texas Department of Transportation. Scenic Houston is partnering with the East Downtown Management District, TIRZ 15 and the City of Houston to transform the right-of-way into a green, functional space that will enhance the eclectic East Downtown community and dramatically improve the entryway into Houston’s Central Business district. The project is an important mission-driven undertaking by Scenic Houston as it will drastically improve Downtown’s first impression for those traveling there for a business meeting or game, and will also create a greatly improved pedestrian experience and sense of place for the EADO neighborhood.
