FEATURED IMPACT COMING SOON The redeveloped Houston Farmers Market at 2520 Airline Drive, could begin operating in early 2021, but developers are still keeping an eye on COVID-19 to determine opening timelines. In late October, the market announced new tenant details, including two restaurants aliated with Underbelly Hospitality and Angleton-based R-C Ranch Texas Craft Meats, and the hunt is on for more food and restaurant tenants to represent Houston. “The goal for food here is to bring a snapshot of the city,” said Underbelly’s Chris Shepherd, who is also serving as a consultant to MLB Capital Partners on the project. “This can be a place where you can see all of the city right here.” The project is nearing the completion of several key buildings as well as revamped open-air market spaces that will oer over 130,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and vendor space. Dozens of returning produce vendors will be able to set up shop alongside quick-service restaurant concepts leading up to a 1-acre green plaza. Another phase of the project will oer another 100,000 square feet of boutique clothing store chain, which has a Highland Village location at 4022 Westheimer Road, is seeking a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the company announced Dec. 3.

The Katy Prairie Conser- vancy and Bayou City Water

Keeper also supported to the ordinance. A report from Environ- ment Texas found Hous- ton’s previous incentives put it eighth among 10 cities in Texas seeking to mitigate flooding through green stormwater infra- structure. With the new ordinance in place, the city is tied for third with San Antonio and Austin, Farrell-Sherman said. District C Council Member Abbie Kamin introduced the idea as an amendment to the city’s fiscal year 2020-21 budget, which was approved in June. “This represents a more holistic approach to the issues we’re tackling with climate change, and it includes our private

partners,” Kamin said. The total tax relief depends on the proportion of the project spending allocated to green stormwa- ter infrastructure and the quality of the design. For example, a $3 million development that includes $200,000 of investment in the highest standard of green stormwater infra- structure could have 100% of its green infrastructure investment abated over 10 years, which would save $20,000 per year. City Council also approved adding a 15%, 10-year tax abatement for developers who comply with the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards.

HOUSTON Just under a year after an explosion at Watson Grinding &Manu- facturing killed two people and damaged over 400 structures, Houston City Council approved a new set of rules regarding the storage of hazardous materials Dec. 16. “A lot of my constituents have asked what was going to come of this,” said District A Council Member Amy Peck, who represents the Spring Branch area, where the explosion occurred. The council strengthened the fire marshal’s enforce- ment capabilities and added libraries, churches, public parks and community centers to the list of locations requir- ing a 1,000-foot buffer from

hazardous materials. “In a city without zoning, this is very important,” Council Member Sallie Alcorn said. It also requires businesses to apply for permits to store hazardous materials out- doors. Previously, businesses needed permits only for indoor storage. The gas that caused the explosion at Watson Grinding &Manufac- turing, propylene, was stored outside. A committee review process was also established to review applications from businesses seeking to alter their storage capabilities. The committee will include officials from the city and a building official.
