I would hope that folks take to the streets with pitchforks and torches when and if the idea of redeveloping the Dinner Bell ever gains any traction.

Originally posted by crockpotandgravel, June 24, 2019 in the thread for 5521 Navigation Blvd. Update on the renovation and build out of Symbolic Brewing Co., the brewery at 5521 Navigation Blvd in Houston: Someone asked a week ago on Instagram or Facebook about the progress. Symbolic said it was slowly progressing.

Some nice brickwork is done, and they are starting to build a cinder block wall in the front:

And, depending on how the eastward extension of the trail is routed, it could make for an appealing destination for bike and pedestrian traffic along the Buffalo Bayou hike and bike trail. Boat tours originating at that part of the Bayou/Ship Channel also sound very interesting. This is a very exciting time to be living in the East End!

After not much visible change for a while, when I last went to Frank's about a week ago I noticed it was finally coming along, so there's still hope. Still didn't seem to be anywhere near opening, though.

Originally posted by crockpotandgravel July 31, 2018 in the thread for 5521 Navigation Blvd. More on Symbolic Brewing Co., coming to 5521 Navigation Blvd in Houston's Second Ward. From Houston Business Journal, behind a pay-wall: ...And with his new venture, Symbolic Brewing Co., Caleb Hawkins hopes to bring a taste of the German beer culture into the heart of Houston. "We’re not gearing (it) toward the beer nerds," Hawkins said. "They're more than welcome, but we’re much more interested in the community and having families there." Symbolic Brewing will occupy just under an acre at 5521 Navigation Blvd., a tract of land that sits right on Buffalo Bayou and adjacent to a large barge dock that the Buffalo Bayou Partnership owns on the bayou. Hawkins and his family – his younger sister, Nellen; his older brother, Oliver and their parents – bought the land at the beginning of 2017 from an individual seller. Though the purchase price of the land wasn't disclosed, the land's value was appraised at $301,356 in January 2017, per city records. The tract of land contains a few unique commercial properties that'll be redeveloped into a brewery and beer garden, Hawkins said. There's a 5,000-square-foot brick and concrete office building that lost its roof in a fire more than a decade ago; that building will be transformed into the brewery's beer garden and be filled with lots of greenery and topped with a shade cloth on warmer days. There's also a 2,300-square-foot industrial building that'll become the brewery's air conditioned tap room. The 9,000-square-foot property will become Symbolic Brewing's production center. ...Construction should start on Symbolic's brewery by the end of the year, Hawkins said, and the brewery should deliver by 2019. ...Hawkins said that the Buffalo Bayou Partnership is discussing the possibility of launching boat tours from the barge just adjacent to Symbolic Brewing Co.'s land. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2018/07/30/exclusive-former-buffalo-bayou-brewer-planning.html

  9. Penciling the date in. Good to have another brewery in the Heights area. I hope the trend of repurposing warehouses continues outside the loop as development and gentrification inches closer beyond the South and East loops.

BBP is really focusing on the wharf and old crane structure on Turkey Bend, just behind this brewery. I can see these two concepts coming together nicely.

Originally posted by crockpotandgravel, April 8, 2017 in the thread for Frank's Backyard | 413 Travis St | Downtown. From Crain's last summer on Frank's Backyard at 413 Travis: Frank’s Pizza knows the key to a person’s heart is a slice of good, cheap pizza. The New York-style pizza joint at 417 Travis St. in downtown Houston will soon have an outdoor patio and bar to go along with that pie once Frank’s Backyard opens next door. General Manager Cody Hastings — also son of the owners — said he hopes Frank’s Backyard will be open and operating smoothly before 2017 hits. “We want to be up and ready with all the kinks ironed out before the Super Bowl,” Hastings said. “That whole week will be amazing for everyone in Houston.” The backyard will feature an outdoor patio in front of the bar, an indoor seating area and a second-floor screened-in patio for visitors with 35 to 45 taps. “It’s going to be beer- and bourbon-driven with a little bit of everything,” Hastings said. Although Backyard has a kitchen, Hastings said the owners didn’t want to take away from Frank’s Pizza. Hungry customers at the bar will have three kiosks where they can order pizza from next door and have it brought over. As always, when it comes to Frank’s, expect no pretenses, he said. “Frank’s is known for being cheap, fast and super casual and the bar will be the exact same way,” Hastings said. “The outdoor feel will be as much about the look and feel of having a beer and hanging out with your friends.” Although exact hours haven’t been set yet, they will likely mirror the late night hours of Frank’s Pizza, which is open until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. http://houston.crains.com/article/franks-hopes-add-outdoor-patio-bar-time-super-bowl

Used Google to see if there were any renderings or details about the brewery for 5521 Navigation Blvd. I didn't find much. I saw a deleted Facebook page for TopHill Brewing Company that matched the address https://www.facebook.com/TopHill-Brewing-Company-1788944421423726/ I also a LinkedIn page for someone who is a founder of Symbolic Brewing Company in Houston. The person worked in some capacity of Flying Saucer in downtown Houston.

Quite a lot of UofH students come to this area for knick knacks and I'm sure are driving the local economy here. I can see this development being really successful, especially if they have a coffee shop here. Coral Sword is usually packed full of UofH students right now so any relief in another coffee shop would be welcome for sure.
