After more than six years of planning between a longtime local arts nonprofit and the City of Houston, construction of a 32,000-square-foot cultural arts center, including two theaters, is set to begin this been to the site of a long strip mall in southwest Houston.
The Edison Cultural Arts Center, slated to open next year near West Fuqua and Hillcroft, is the brainchild of local nonprofit leader Charity Carter and her husband, Troy Carter. It will include a 400-seat theater named for the late Houston Councilman Larry Green, as well as the 165-seat Black Box Theater. The project will be the second and largest phase of the Edison Center master plan, whose repurposing of the 12.5-acre site near Houston’s border with Missouri City began with the opening of the 126-unit Edison Lofts apartments in September. .
