A different sort of Guide


f you’re new to the area, you don’t know what you’re holding. If you’ve lived in this area for 41 years and have received The Leader that long, well, you’ve received one of these publications – on the last week of October – for every single one of these years. That’s right, this special publication has now published for more than four decades, and it’s a testament not so much to The Leader, but to the people Jonathan McElvy who have supported Publisher a local, community newspaper for that long. So what is The Guide? When you scroll through the pages, you’ll find two very distinct aspects. First, you’ll see more local businesses advertisements than you see in any other edition of The Leader at any other time of the year. Second, you’ll find all kinds of useful information if you’re new to the area or have lived here for four decades. The Guide is designed to be just that. It gives you an annual glimpse at the businesses

– most of them locally owned – that rely on you, our readers, to support them. But for those of us on the editorial side of things (the ones who write the stories), we love publishing this edition because it allows us to tell stories that sometimes wouldn’t fit in the regular edition of The Leader. For instance, when have you ever sat down and read a complete “guide” to all the thrift stores in the area? You can find that on Page 23. How many times have you asked someone what you should do with your in-laws when they visit town? You can find some great suggestions on Page 34. On Page 5, we’ve built the city’s smallest phone book, with nearly every useful number you’d ever need to call if you have a problem that the city’s supposed to fix. Mixed in, we’ve published our “Book of Lists,” if it’s even legal to call it that. This publication is an annual guide to the resources you need to live in our community, and we’re incredibly proud to offer it to our readers yet again. We can’t do this without the help of local businesses. And local businesses can’t thrive without the help of you.

Development Projects in the Area

A lot has improved in the last few months GO approves storm drain improvements

The Leader area has a history, one which is important to preserve and let future generations know their story. However, any burgeoning town eventually must walk the tightrope between warm, fuzzy memories and needed facelifts—whether it be through new development, repurposing or asset improvement — in order to maintain its status as a destination. Here are just a few of the major improvements in our area since the calendar flipped 2016.

Management unveiled plans for 33 1/3 @ Thirtyfourth to Swamplot on the southeast corner of 34th Street and Ella Boulevard; this on the heels of Bryan Danna announcing plans for a 2.5 acre retail development on the southwest end. However, Hotze has yet to make plans for the additional land that he owns on 34th Street, which includes a 96,000 square-foot property courtesy and another 35,000 sqaure feet on two additional properties. Both believe their establishments will bring not only more retail and restaurants, but hasten additional development along the corridor.

In July, the city of Houston approved a contract with JFT construction for a $23 million project aimed at giving much needed facelifts to the storm drains for the Garden Oaks, Shepherd Park, Candlelight Plaza, Pinemont and Oak Grove areas. The project includes installation of more than 17,500 feet of storm sewer pipe and reinforced concrete box sewers according to officials. Drainage will be re-routed through the new sewers and inlets with new pavement.

The Lowell Market Project, which Steve Radom of Radom Capital LLC hopes can debut in 2017, includes reskinning two end buildings into darker wooden patinas inspired by Japanese barns and uniting the two with a green space. Additional aspects include a courtyard and 3,000 square-foot building designed out of glass designers say will add to the area’s character. “There is a sense of combining existing industrial character of the area with the softer domestic feeling of the greater Heights area,” architect Troy Schaum said.

Major development on Ella, Washington, Yale and more

Progress continues for Memorial Park master plan

Oakbrook is no more

Wabash finally sets moving date

It is no secret the Heights is booming, and not just with residents — businesses too. Numerous retailers and others have come in and set up shop on Yale, Washington Avenue, Pinemont and more, and have already been welcome additions to the area. From Berry Hill, Gatlin’s BBQ move to Ella and the new Ella Plaza to a potential urgent care center near I-10 and Studemont to the Pinemont Pavilion on Pinemont Road and a booming 19th Street development spurred by Bryan Danna opening Phase I of his development near 19th and Shepherd, the area is burgeoning with new tenants and retailers

Despite immense rain and flooding around Memorial Day, the spirit of the Memorial Park master plan was undeterred—in fact, Memorial Park Conservancy President Shellye Arnold said it was a silver lining for preliminary work back in May. Crews broke ground on the inagural phase of the plan (Eastern Glades) late in 2015, which includes a 113-acre area north of Memorial Drive Park golf course and the Crestwood subdivision. The area will be used as two large green spaces which preserve nature and serve as spots for picnicking and more. Though there have been rumors of funds being cut due to the city’s overall funding issues, Arnold assured the public that any funding would simply be pushed back, not cut.

Following more than 70 inspections from the Department of Neighborhoods, the abandoned five-story, 222-unit Oakbrook Apartments were finally demolished back in July after Houston City Council voted to purchase the derelict complex at 5353 Desoto St. in order to help create more green space along the White Oak hike and bike trail. Mayor Sylvester Turner and District A council member Brenda Starding joined the public in celebration of the event. Starding has been working on reducing the area’s density since taking office in 2010. Houston Parks Board Communications Manager Catherine Busch told The Leader that plans for the park following the demolition included minimal landscaping work.

The beloved country feed store, after months of numerous setbacks and delays due to unforeseen circumstances, were finally able to set a late October move-in date for their new location on North Shepherd Drive, as reported by The Leader in September. Though moving a business five miles is quite a jump, store owner Betty Heacker said she and her staff are excited to “spread their wings” at the new facility after simply outgrowing their current Washington Avenue location. “We’re just doing it one foot in front of the other right now,” she said. “We’re going to try and be a good neighbor and I think we’re moving into an area where people are going to be happy to see us.”

Antoine reconstruction plans set to commence in 2017

City officials announced in March that plans for the Antoine Area Reconstruction Project is set to commence its design phase in 2017, with a tentative 2020 date set for commencement on construction on the project. Plans for the project center around a north and south segment. According to officials, the North segment will consist of a 1.4-mile stretch from Antoine to Victory Drive, consisting of a four-lane reconstructed roadway with a 10-foot shared pedestrian and bike path, while the southern portion would consist of four lanes northbound between Tidwell and Victory and six southbound lanes between US 290 and Tidwell and a similar bike/pedestrian path. In response to some complaints, officials said congestion along Antoine supports the six-lane configuration according to their pre-engineering study. Big plans in the works for Ella/34th Street

The area around 34th Street may be shaping up as the next major thing in commercial real estate, as evidenced by several establishments popping up earlier this year. In May, Chris Hotze of Crescere Capital

Texas Children’s pediatrics relocating Heights facility

In June, Dan Braun confirmed to The Leader that healthcare heavy hitter Texas Children’s Pediatrics has signed a long-term agreement to operate a 3,000 square foot Texas Children’s Urgent Care Center as well as a 10,000 squarefoot Texas Children’s Pediatric Center at 23rd and Yale Street. The new urgent care location will allow Texas Children’s to have an expanded staff of physicians and advanced practice provider available each day. “It will include a larger space that will allow Texas Children’s to continue providing the best care to the quickly-growing Heights community,” said Texas Children’s Pediatrics PR specialist Caroline Timm. Construction began in September and the facility is slated to open in March of 2017.

Eureka Heights sets up shop

Area craft brewery Eureka Heights quietly opened its doors to more than 500 members of the Heights public for its inaugural test run April 13. The excitement of the crowd, who lined up four-deep to sample Eureka’s offerings, was a surprise to say the least for the owners, who were expecting between 100-200 attendees. The brewery is offering free tours every Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., and all residents are welcome to stop by. For more information, visit Lowell Street Market envisions increase in pedestrian traffic

Instead of simply demolishing a property to make way for completely new digs, a future development along North Shepherd Drive near 18th Street plans to use and repurpose existing facilities for a completely different result.

Yale city’s first ‘green’ corridor

On June 22, the Houston City Council voted to grant official protection to a 1.6-mile stretch of Yale running from 6th Street to 19th Street; the measure is a way of preventing removal or damage to all trees measuring 15 inches or more in diameter. City officials required the neighborhood to encourage a minimun of 75 percent of property owners to sign a petition supporting the measure within a 90-day period of the protection granted — and the neighborhood’s dedication paid off. “This designation is not only important on the neighborhood level, but also for the entire city as the first pathway to designation,” Houston Heights Association Urban Forestry Committee head Jonathan Smulian said. “It laid groundwork for others to follow.”

Faith community grows, renovates in the area Vineyard Church of Houston

• Abiding Faith UMC

4300 N. Shepherd Dr. 77018 713-698-0671

We are just coming out of a season where a cacophony of voices vie for our attention, trying to coerce us to action. Some may be quite heated and anxious, while others persuasive and eloquent. We can feel manipulated, guilty, or angry especially when the voices are strident and persistent. Every faith community navigates these seasons in different ways and from different perspectives.

Mount Rush Hour

Powerful sculptures a sight to behold for drivers in Houston By Kim Hogstrom Since 2013, thousands of Houston’s commuters creeping along in traffic near the I-45 and I-10 exchange on the edge of the Heights, have enjoyed a view of American Statesmanship Park from the highway. Still, millions more Houstonians have never seen or even heard of this local, one-of-kind attraction. The Leader decided it was time to share another of our “only in Houston” icons with our readers. Located at 1400 Elder Street and jutted up against a backdrop of new town homes, curious sight-seers will find 17-foot sculpted busts of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Sam Houston, and Stephen F. Austin lined up in a

tidy row facing I-45. It is soon apparent how the little park with big heads earned its nick-name - Mount Rush Hour. “American Statesmanship Park is the smallest park in Harris County,” stated Kyle Kelley, Director of Parks for Harris County Precinct 2. “It sits on one-tenth of an acre. It may be our smallest, but it is definitely our coolest park. I only wish more people knew about it.” The busts are the creation of Heights artist David Adickes, and was the park was his idea. “I bought the 100-foot by 50-foot lot which had a condemned building on it at the time,” Adickes explained. “It was originally the location of the Greater Come-as-You-Are Missionary Baptist Church, but unfortunately, a flood destroyed it, so we built the park. We saved the original steps into the building; they are still

there.” Each bust sits on a 10-foot base bringing it to a soaring 28 feet in total. The sculptures themselves were cast in concrete and each weighs about 7,000 pounds. There are flood lights at ground level to highlight the statesmen after nightfall. The sight is remarkable. After the creation of the park, local art enthusiast Chris Laporte purchased the entire project. Laporte then chose to donate the park, appraised for north of $250,000, to Harris County Precinct 2. “I wanted to help David continue to produce his work, to facilitate his future,” Laporte explained. “I also think his sculptures deserve a place in the fabric of Houston and our community. I want all to be able to enjoy them and

donating the park was a great way to do it..” Laporte also purchased and donated Adickes’ sculpture of President George H.W. Bush proudly standing guard at Bush Intercontinental Airport today Still, the work for which Adickes has won the most acclaim is his 77-foot sculpture of Sam Houston towering over the east side of I-45 in Huntsville. It is unforgettable. “One day, I took my kids to see Mount Rush Hour,” explained Park Director Kelley. “My kids were thrilled. They are young and weren’t real sure about the first three busts, but they recognized Sam Houston right away, from our trips to Huntsville,” he concluded with a laugh. David Adickes opened his new gallery, the Debose, at 1502 Sawyer St. in the Art Silos on Thursday, Sept. 29.
