No, they just built one on Bay Area in Clear Lake. Not sure if it’s open yet 

 

Also stores in Sugar Land and Alvin that have been open a few months now. There's one in Spring coming soon too.

The building at the corner of Main & Ruth St. will be renovated into lofts.    

HACS doesn't just serve "the homeless." It serves all types of people regardless of income levels. They provide a great service. Also, HACS and Bering Omega are combining forces and merging into one o

Will this be the first 7-11 in Houston?

There is one at Townsen/1960 in Humble that's a new build that has looked 48 hours away from opening for almost a month. I wonder if they'll open a la Kohl's with a bunch of locations at once. No 7/11 signage up, but that's basically the only thing that's missing.

This building has been vacant for at least 3-4 years, so a car dealership is better than nothing. Just a little concerning that they didn't spell their own name correctly on the CO permit.

The misspelling doesn't appear to have interfered with their opening. Delta Auto Alliance

According to Yelp!, Advantage BMW service building (2101 San Jacinto) is closed.
Realtor signs have recently appeared, and a service bay entrance has been boarded up. 
Has anyone heard about a possible new tenant or redevelopment of this property?

I believe they closed for construction/remodeling. They recently applied for a setback variance so not sure if this a major change to the existing structure or if they are adding an additional one.

The Pacesetters Personnel Services (PPS) has closed!!!! It’s all boarded up! Of course we knew this was part of the Rice Development but I’m just so happy to see it finally gone! That has been ground zero for the homeless in the area. Granted, now they are all congregating along the fence. Now all that’s left to be closed is that sketchy MetroPCS/Corner store.

Do you know if that Jack-in-the-Box next door will be torn down as a part of the Rice plan?

Does anyone know what's going up at the site of the old Hefley's that burned down (138ish W Gray?).  It looks to be a 2-story steel frame structure.

I believe its going to be a bar and possibly mixed use with some offices and a penthouse for the man himself on the upper floors.

There is a TABC sign up in the window of the building where Next Level E-Sports was supposed to open up. Here are the details:

Notice is hereby given in accordance with the terms and provisions of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code that Eleven 11 Lounge Group, LLC D/B/A Eleven 11 Lounge has filed application for Mixed Beverage Permit, Mixed Beverage Late Hours Permit, Beverage Cartage Permit, Food and Beverage Certificate. Said business to be conducted at 2402 Austin Street, Houston (Harris County), Texas 77004. Eleven 11 Lounge Group, LLC D/B/A Eleven 11 Lounge David Gonzalez, Manager

There is also a business listing under that name/location on Google Maps.

Has anyone heard anything? Seems too big for a hookah lounge. Maybe a nightclub?

I mean, this place closed back in 2015/2016 and served dope seafood, seemed to do with inability to pay back rent. https://www.zagat.com/r/eleven-xi-restaurant-bar-houston

Man, Austin street will be blowing up if they get a nice restaurant and bar along with gypsy poet, which is already kind of a neighborhood fave.

Perhaps his trend may help revive the proposed bar and restaurant development that stalled out at 2403 Caroline, especially since the construction on Caroline St has mostly been completed.
With any luck the rebuilt street, sidewalks, and landscaping and appealing destinations will draw the people who live in the newly built apartments nearby to walk a few blocks.

That would be nice, but a local publication should be buzzing about that by now. Agreed that this sliver of Austin/Caroline has the potential to make a destination area if the landowners get off their butts.

That development opportunity is long gone. I believe this is what is moving forward:

I had the impression that the affordable housing was to be located at Caroline and McGowen, but not occupy all of the land that was previously earmarked for Midtown Commons.
If so, the existing building at 2403 Caroline would not be included (and could possibly become a bar, restaurant, or some combination).
Either way, I'm looking forward to any development that will breathe more life into these blocks.

The permits for Caroline Lofts mention Building 2, so I would guess they are developing in phases. All of the land along Caroline and a little lot on Austin are part of the same parcel. Not sure how it was sold (or maybe it's still under contract), but I would guess that it's all going together. The spot across the street where the used car lot is operating has bar/restaurant written all over it.

The former garage structure at Austin and McIlhenny is being converted into a two story club/lounge with outdoor seating. Work is underway with opening scheduled for June.

Is this the building adjacent to The Gypsy Poet?
There's going to be competition for parking if they're open the same hours as Space (formerly Rich's) - and it seems likely they will be.

Correct on both accounts. And with the Caroline Lofts project scheduled for construction soon, this area will be quite the handful.

Shiny, Slick Starck Room Channels Famous French Design In a Bar For “Discerning Guests”

 

The bar, set to debut in May, promises a “clean, sexy” environment inspired by (though not affiliated with) French industrial designer Philippe Starck

An intimate new nightclub and event space inspired by a French architect and designer is set to make its official debut in Midtown in May.

The Starck Room has been quietly open for a few months at 2450 Louisiana St. Suite 100, in what was formerly Ibiza Lounge. The new venue is planning for a grand opening celebration sometime in early May, according to a press release.

Thought he’s not involved in the project, the Starck Room was inspired by French industrial designer Philippe Starck, best known for his Masters Chairghost chairs, and spider-like juicer. According to a statement, the team behind the Starck Room was specifically inspired by the architect’s Delano Beach Clubhotel in South Beach, the SLS Hotel in LA, and the Paramount Hotel in Manhattan. The unnamed industry veterans behind the club wanted a “clean, sexy name that matched the design and elegance of the space,” per the release.

 

The venue seems to want to be many things to many people, promising both “something for everyone” and a place for “discerning guests” to experience “a new level of luxurious style.” Design-wise, that includes elements like a signature fragrance permeating the space, LED lights in each room to create ambiance, bright blue doors marking the entrance, glimmering golden bar chairs reminiscent of Starck’s own designs, and “masculine and soft feminine touches throughout”. The 1,800-foot interior opens to a Instagram-worthy 300 square-foot patio featuring a graffiti mural and a flower wall.

The bar will offer a handful of signature cocktails that are riffs on classic beverages like the jungle bird and Cosmopolitan, as well as bottle service and champagne and wines by the glass or bottle. For now, the only food is a selection of flatbreads, but plans are in the works for a more elaborate menu, plus a monthly Sunday brunch.

The Starck Room is open Wednesday through Saturday from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.. Stayed tuned for more specific details on the grand opening party.
