It's baaaackk! We're thrilled to report that our team reinstalled Artist Amber Eagle's Autoflora back at Jenkins Garden this morning after a months-long restoration. After almost 7 years in Houston heat and sun, it needed a little work and now it looks as good as new!

Houston's New Natural Wonderland — Be Among the First to Discover East River | PaperCity Magazine

"Why activate the site for the community before construction even begins? Anna Deans, Midway’s vice president of investment and development (and East End District board member), says it’s all about the ties that bind neighbors.

“We want the project to be shaped by the community,” Deans notes. “It is important to get the community engaged as early as possible to allow the opportunity for the built environment to be adapted to specific users and needs — and reflective of the rich culture that already exists in this area.”"

This is East River now, 150 acres along the bayou that bridges the historic Second and Fifth Wards, a home to art, fields of trees, bees and wildflowers. But this is also Midway’s canvas for creating a groundbreaking mixed-use development.
