As we are all aware, the apartments at 1901 Richmond have been a problem in our neighborhood for quite some time. The apartments formerly known as Skylane and most recently Houston Medical Apartments have been the home and cause of much criminal activity in and around our neighborhood. We’ve spent much time talking about this apartment complex and what we can do as a neighborhood to improve the quality of life in the surrounding area and clean up 1901 Richmond.
Thanks, in part to a post on this website and to a new owner interested in improving this property, representatives of our neighborhood met with the new owner this week. His name is Cody. He is going to be at the property daily updating the units and working to get the entire property rented out. If you would like to walk the property, you can call him directly at 713-992-3997 to schedule a time. He is interested in suggestions for upgrades (either cosmetic or functional.) And, he is very interested in ideas from the neighborhood to help improve the property and improve the effect its residents have on our neighborhood.
We are going to work diligently with the new owner to make a positive difference and we welcome your input and suggestions. Daniel, our Vice President, will also be sending a follow up email to those of you on our yahoo distribution list.
