Developers want to build a storage facility on 11th Street in the middle of the Heights

  • It will be seven stories tall, dominating 11th street and towering over our neighborhood.
  • It will increase truck traffic driven by inexperienced drivers on our streets.
  • It will be a source of light pollution, affecting the quality of life for nearby residential streets.
  • Its ugly bunker design will mar the historic Height streetscape.
  • It is a step backwards in making the Heights a more bike and pedestrian friendly neighborhood.
  • It is a lost opportunity to add businesses that contribute to the vitality of our community.

We are petitioning Houston City Council to stop the permitting for Big Tex Storage Heights at 730 East 11th Street 77008. We believe this project is poorly suited for its location and will have a negative impact on the community. It will:

- be out of scale and out of character for the neighborhood,
- be a step backwards in all of the pedestrian and bike friendly development this community has fought for,
- be in direct conflict with the highly anticipated 11th Street Bikeway program,
- increase truck traffic driven by inexperienced drivers,
-be a source of light pollution, affecting the quality of life for nearby residential streets,
- negatively affect property values in the vicinity,
- be a lost opportunity to add businesses that contribute to the vitality of the community.
