Interesting.  I wonder what it will attract as tennants



According to the marketing brochure, they're looking for a juice bar, coffee shop, or dessert bar. They're also looking for a restaurant. Additional spaces for a creative office,  fitness studio, and retail.

At least 24% of their customers will make a joke of that name, removing a 'n'

I'm happy to see these warehouses get a second lease on life rather than being demolished. I'd like to see stores you'd see in the main square of a small country town. I don't want to see another chain.

They have gutted the office building and trimmed the trees. Looms like they are now in the process of building that out. 

 

The warehouses have had some work done, but nothing substantial yet.

That's fast. I expected work to begin towards the end of the year. Edge must have at least one or two tenants signed to begin work on this. I didn't like the design at first but the more I look at it, it's growing on me. It reminds me of a urban feed store from the outside.

From a Houston Business Journal article from November 2016:

Riverway Properties has raised $25 million to acquire and redevelop urban properties. Riverway Capital Partners recently acquired its first redevelopment deal — the Berger Iron Works site — and is planning to revitalize the industrial metal shop into The Ironworks, a new mixed-use retail, dining and office project.

I still have yet to see a rendering or plan for the office space. It is a separate building on the west side of Bonner. Looking forward to any enhancement though.

Maybe offices were sacked for more retail space?

I really hope there isn't an "ice house" in this development...

 

I live close by and as much as I love bar traffic and parking it already gets messy down the surrounding streets with street parking.

I live down the street and received the variance request, suppose that means things are moving forward.  Just a setback notice, might call the contact listed to see about the tenant wishlist. Fingers still crossed against an Ice house.

I don't care what's going here, but am happy to see developers repurpose the building and not tear it down. In Houston Chronicle's recent Looped In podcast, the hosts discussed warehouses being in top demand in Houston and how breweries are occupying them. Anything that doesn't involve demolishing buildings, I'm in favor of.

I suppose I have more of a vested interest based on my proximity. In general, I have mixed feelings on repurposing buildings versus rebuild. If they offer little architectural value, I'd rather see a rebuild.
