The project is within the Rice Military district, east of Shepherd, between Interstate 10 and Washington Avenue, which has recently been redeveloped. The popularity of this area is due to the proximity to downtown and Memorial Park, Houston’s premier green space. Upper West End consists of approximately 200 townhouses developed in four phases, from 2004–2015. The overall design strategy was to implement a neighborhood cohesion and create townhouses (1400–1850 S.F.) with open spaces. The neighborhood cohesion was achieved with color and sidewalks. A palette of four colors was chosen and repeated throughout the development assigning a color to each townhouse.
