Houston’s East End is rapidly improving and coming into its own. I remember that even 10 years ago, this was not an area you’d want to go to at night or even day time without locking all your doors, but look at them now! The Esplande is just inviting neighbors and visitors to walk around and enjoy the history of the neighborhood. I only photographed the start of new construction, but the median takes up several blocks with room to lock your bike, places for vendors, and other future events. They also have LED lights which are powered by the solar panels to add that green touch.
