Morgan Weber and Dave Pickerell are partnering with Gulf Coast Distillery, 5610 Clinton Dr in the Second Ward. The name is Indianola Distilling Company and will distribute whiskeys, bourbon, gin and brandy. From Houston Chronicle today:
In around two years, Sugar Land's old Imperial Sugar refinery area will be redeveloped into Imperial Market, a $200 million historic mixed-use project led by the developers behind downtown's Houston Pavilions, now known as Green Street.
Recently, the project secured a co-working tenant, which could signal the industry's broader push into Houston's suburbs.
Rye, New York-based Serendipity Labs will occupy 15,939 square feet in the mixed-use development, per a Serendipity Labs spokesperson. The company made its first splash in Houston last year when it signed an exclusive franchising agreement with Houston-based Cameron Management and announced its plans to open 10 locations throughout the Bayou City.
Gensler will design Serendipity Labs' space in Imperial Market.
