HOUSTON – City officials have agreed to buy a 28-acre research property at 5521 Gasmer Dr. from Shell Oil Co.
The property will be used to build a new detention basin that will help to prevent homes in the Westbury neighborhood from being flooded.
As a result, the planned Levitt Pavilion concert venue will be moved from along S. Post Oak Rd. to the Shell site.
Relocating the pavilion will allow the city to expand the existing detention area near the intersection of S. Post Oak Rd. and Gasmer Dr.
The city also agreed to lease 6.4 acres back to Shell through December 2020.
