Broadway Boulevard is in the heart of the Hobby Area Management District and serves as a major transportation corridor to and from William P. Hobby Airport. As a gateway and first impression for the City of Houston, the Broadway Boulevard required a complete transformation including enhancement of the streetscapes and an identity for the emerging district.
The implementation of the project included complex coordination between numerous stakeholders, in addition to the Hobby Area Management District, including the City of Houston Public Works, Scenic Houston, Trees for Houston, Glenbrook Valley Historic Neighborhood, TxDOT, and CenterPoint Energy, who donated the installation of the city’s first major LED street lights along the corridor.
Clark Condon seamlessly unified the vision of the district into a comprehensive plan that protected over 100 mature trees, improved pedestrian mobility through the installation of new sidewalks and bus shelters, and increased visibility with new LED-efficient streetlights and wayfinding signage. The significant improvements along Broadway have earned multiple awards for its redevelopment from ULI Houston, Keep Houston Beautiful and the Houston Business Journal Landmark Awards.
