Design concepts for Midway’s East River take shape

Architectural renderings that recently resurfaced of the proposed redevelopment of KBR’s former home along an eastern stretch of Buffalo Bayou were created as part of last year’s bid to lure Amazon’s second headquarters to Houston.

An official from Midway, the company planning the East River redevelopment project, said the drawings were created to help the tech giant (or any large corporate user, for that matter) visualize the site’s potential.

The concept for East River is evolving, Midway’s Ann Taylor said, and the drawings will continue to undergo revisions.

For the project to ultimately take shape in a way that’s depicted in the images, Taylor adds, it will need support from an array of public entities, nonprofits and residents.
