Ashby Tower is on the horizon, but how far away?

The site of Ashby tower still sits vacant in Houston
  • Neighborhood residents were awarded $1.2 million for damages
  • Developers are searching for another contractor at this time due to increasing costs
  • Other Houston neighborhood residents are taking cues how to mobilize against developers

The Ashby tower high-rise at 1717 Bissonnet in Houston got the green light from the city to move forward with development in 2009, but ground still has yet to be broken.

Since 2007, residents have clashed with developers over the construction of the proposed Ashby tower.
