Ems Place Subdivision
We the undersigned residents of Houston are in opposition to the development by Inner Loop Condos/View Point at the Heights called Emes Place Subdivision. The undersigned are petitioning the City of Houston to preserve the historical eco space located at the intersection of E. 5 ½ and Frasier Streets adjacent to the newly created hike and bike trail. This development will forever alter the original street symmetry of Freeland Historic District, the last 100% intact district in Houston, as well as re-route the hike and bike trail. This 84 unit condo project will have 2 levels of parking and 4-5 levels of condos. It will be built on piers that will obstruct the ravine and eliminate the valuable green space, which both serve as significant natural flood mitigation tools. The traffic congestion will continue to add to the already dangerous and hazardous intersections of Frasier/Granberry and White Oak, as well as, hinder emergency vehicle access to all residents. This property has been located between the ravine and the railroad bed in its natural state since the early 1800’s. The undersigned are petitioning the City of Houston to use all necessary means to facilitate a negotiation agreement with the developer to retain and preserve the land in its natural state and to keep the hike and bike trail intact in the current location. Letters of support have been written and submitted by The Houston Audubon Society and The Bayou Preservation Association.
