Plans have been submitted for the redevelopment of multiple properties in the fast-growing Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood. The project is composed of two different site locations with a total of 6 new development projects:
- Site A proposes 3 mixed-use buildings along Houston Street between Martin & Brown Streets.
