Houston Pavilions

17 posts in this topic

California developer William Denton and Houston developer Geoffrey Jones completed a $20 million purchase of 3 downtown blocks for a mixed-use project called Houston Pavillions. The project is expected to have a major impact on downtown retail with a planned 365,000 sf of space on three levels. The project will also include a 194,000 sf office tower and at least 200 condominium units. The three blocks are bounded by Main, Polk, Dallas, and Caroline streets and will also front the light rail line. More details about the project are expected to be released later this month. The Houston Pavilions website doesn't have much info currently but does have a few renderings. http://www.houstonpavilions.com/

Co-general partner Denton, who was responsible for the development of Baybrook Mall, Deerbrook Mall and Willowbrook Mall in Houston, says 200,000 square feet in Houston Pavilions will be leased by apparel tenants, 60,000 square feet will house restaurants and 90,000 square feet is earmarked for entertainment sites. Most of the tenants have been identified in-house, he says, and leases or letters of intent on 50 percent of the retail/entertainment space will be secured in time for a May ground-breaking.

"We're a lot further along than we've let on," says Denton, adding that many retailers want to announce their own projects. "We have a handful of tenants exclusive to us."

The retail tenants will be located on the first two levels of the project with entertainment venues on the third level. There will also be an east-west pedestrian walkway through the middle of the three blocks creating more store-front space and all the buildings will be connected by skybridges on the second level.

I'm really surprised Houston never had a House of Blues before this project. I just always assumed Houston had everything, because it certainly should.

Houston is hands-down my favorite city in Texas.

Some tenants announced for the Houston Pavilions:

As some of you are aware, an outside group is scheduled to develop the three vacant blocks of land starting with the block directly across from the college on Polk street and including the two vacant blocks of land directly west of that block. This project is to be a multi-use project to include retail/entertainment, office, and residential. Some of you have inquired into the status of the project since construction has not yet begun on these three blocks. The following is an update. At this point, the project is scheduled to start on September 15th of this year. The developers expect to have the project completed in time for the holiday shopping period in December of 2007. My personal view and the view of those professionals in the construction industry is that this is optimistic as it is an extremely fast schedule. Time will only tell if this schedule will be met. The project has now signed up the following upscale clients to include: The House of Blues, McCormick and Schmidt Seafood Restaurants, Lucky Strike Bowling, Yao's Restaurant, Lawry's Prime Rib, Boca Chica, and Mia Bella. A 12 story residential tower is planned on the southeast corner of the lot closest to us. While this is a very exciting project and if successful will definitely upgrade our part of downtown, it will impact our ability to navigate the streets next to and around the project. Once the project begins, we will be putting out bulletins in this regard to keep you informed. In addition, for those students who are used to parking on any of these lots, I would strongly suggest that you start making alternate arrangements. Hopefully this helps. If you have any questions, please let me know. - Greg Brothers
