More on the Ashby High Rise Settlement (3/13/12)

The Houston Chronicle provides an update, Nancy Samoff, City reaches deal on Ashby high-rise project (3/12/12), here.  The key paragraph in the article is:
The settlement allows for Buckhead to build 228 apartments in a 21-story building at 1717 Bissonnet. The settlement requires the developer to mitigate light and noise from the building and garage. Vehicles leaving the building from Ashby would be allowed to turn only right toward Bissonnet, keeping traffic away from the neighborhood.

Update on Ashley High Rise (3/2/12)

The Houston Chronicle reports here that the City of Houston is near a settlement on the Ashley High Rise issue that will permit the construction to go forward.

The Mayor's letter with a summary of the details is here.  The copy of the letter I received at home had two graphics with it.  I will try to post them later.
