Study Summary and Goals
The Westchase Study provides recommendations that guide future land use and transportation investments east of Beltway 8. Specifically, the recommends:
- Creating a greater sense of place through the construction of a mixed-use pedestrian corridor, The Promenade, a new signature park for the District, mixed-use redevelopment of neighborhood retail, and transit-oriented development at the Gessner Park-and-Ride.
- Building on the District’s walkability by implementing a series of walkable loops along the street grid, activating the area’s large setbacks, and creating new paths along the property lines of the many multi-family complexes.
- Improving the District’s bike network by connecting across the Beltway to Library Loop Trail and making links to Brays Bayou.
- Developing new housing options while retaining the area’s affordability.
