Washington Heights promises to be the impetus of transformation and renewal of an area previously occupied by industries such as steel manufacturing, oil storage and petroleum refining. This once contaminated site will be put to a higher and better use by providing underserved, inner loop communities with a vibrant retail center, significantly improved infrastructure and neighborhood amenities. Named for its adjacent relationship with both the Houston Heights and the Washington Avenue corridor, Washington Heights will provide a bridge between these two vibrant communities and supply the catalyst for the regeneration of the neighborhood.
