Post Oak Central campus might add retail component

Recommended Posts

Crescent Real Estate Equities LLC is looking at developing space for retail shops, restaurants, a conference center, cafeteria and fitness facility in front of the 1.2 million-square-foot complex in the Galleria area. The construction idea comes at a time when new commercial developments are popping up all around the 17-acre complex

In theory, I should be happy that Post Oak is getting knitted together with nice, modern, walkable retail. (It's one more opportunity to show up all the fashionistas in Dallas.) In practice, I wonder who needs all this new retail space. There can only be so many high-rent boutiques. Wealthy Mexican nationals, perhaps?

I hate you.

I live across the street, and every day when I see the complex, I always think that there is too much unused space out in the front there. They could fit a whole additional tower there. Personally, I hope this happens, if for no other reason than for me to have a place to go hang out at across the street while I'm bored before BLVD Place is finished. ;)

I'm and pretty sure that complex already has some retail and a gym in it.

It would be great if they could reinvigorate the already-existing strip retail at Post Oak Central.  However, if they were to replace the nice triangular park that fronts on Post Oak Blvd, I think it would be a major blow.  Going forward, I think area residents and workers will come to appreciate that park even more, if it stays.  Aside from that, there's a special aesthetic aspect that people haven't commented on:  ever notice how it relates spatially with the smaller triangular park across the street between the Hilton and The Lofts on PO?  I have always assumed that the 2 parks were placed that way due to some forward thinking at Hines, but I don't know for sure.

Oh, and BTW ... I recently stumbled onto the food-truck convergence that appears from time-to-time on the inner perimeter of the triangular park at Post Oak Central.  Very cool!

The Post Oak Campus already has retail. Looks like they are just renovating the exterior and plaza. Looks good! Did Phillip Johnson design the parking garage too? I think this is by far the ugliest garage in the area.

Those garages need to be bulldozed and replaced with taller garages and more buildings. They were built when land was way, way cheaper. The owners would basically get free land by densifying it.

I think a movie theater would be great, something similar to Edwards Greenway, that will increase traffic a lot.

Maybe a main event to

Bummer.  Love going to that every year.

 

FWIW, the Chron exhibits its utter cluelessness again.  The article says the Uptown holiday lighting "takes place . . . the night before Thanksgiving".  (For anyone who does not know, the Uptown holiday lighting has always been on Thanksgiving night.  NOT the night before.)  There's a reasonable chance the Chron got it all  wrong and the Holiday lighting will continue...

Not sure about the big project, but last time I was over there they were in the midst of creating a new vehicle and pedestrian connection from the north side at S. Post Oak Ln to the already existing retail at the center of the property. A wise and important visual connection to the development at Blvd Place and the neighboring residential highrises going up. Perhaps there is more to follow?

 

I know, I know, no pictures... Sorry y'all.

Alex Rodriguez-Backed Fitness Studio To Open In Uptown Houston
https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/retail/alex-rodriguez-backed-fitness-studio-to-open-in-uptown-houston-99997
 

Quote

TruFusion, a Las Vegas-based boutique fitness concept, will open a 12K SF facility at 1990 Post Oak Blvd., Uptown Houston. This marks the first Houston location for the fitness concept, which is backed by Major League Baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez as a board member and a major investor. "My team and I are thrilled to bring the TruTribe to Houston and partner with Parkway to bring a new level of fitness to this already beautiful and unique property," Nevada-based entrepreneur and franchisee Natalie Buckel said in a release. "We are community-driven and are excited to immerse ourselves in the Houston lifestyle and introduce everyone to the TruFusion brand."

 

Launched in 2013, TruFusion features a variety of more than 200 fitness classes per week, including yoga, Barre, Pilates, cycling, cardio, boxing, kettlebell and an array of boot camps. TruFusion joins coworking operator SPACES opening at Post Oak Central, a 24-story, Class-A office tower, later this year.

I saw this yesterday and wondered if that is how big the space was where Dynamic Fitness was as this would make sense as a replacement...however i noticed the article says 1990 Post Oak and Dynamic was at 1980 Post Oak...(although the same compound/Post Oak Central). I guess we shall see. 

and still waiting and hoping to see cool editions like the restaurant in the post a couple above... hope things like that still happen.

While still a mystery as to which part of the building (and maybe which building)...

i did see this mentioned in a new article:

The new gym will open in Uptown Houston’s Post Oak Central campus, operated by Parkway Property Investments, according to a release. This will be the first TruFusion Houston location and third Texas site. Buff and soon-to-be buff locals can expect a 12,000-square-foot space, which is set to open in winter 2019 at a street level retail space at 1990 Post Oak Blvd.

Post Oak Central Adding Upscale Retail

http://realtynewsreport.com/2019/08/06/post-oak-central-adding-upscale-retail/

 

Quote

 

HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Parkway Properties Investments has signed M.M. LaFleur, a high-end retailer, as a tenant in Post Oak Central, as part of an effort to add an upscale retail to the development.

 

“This lease furthers our goal of creating an upscale retail mix that not only builds our campus ecosystem, but also positions Post Oak Central as a lifestyle destination for the area,” said Parkway Leasing Manager Amanda Nebel.

 

Tom Havron of Newmark Knight Frank represented Parkway in the 2,300-SF lease. Located on Post Oak Blvd., the 17-acre Post Oak Central has three office towers with a total 1.2 million SF.

 

M.M. LaFleur is a New York-based women’s clothing brand and styling service which first entered the Houston market in October 2018 as a pop up.

“Post Oak Central provides our clients with a prime Post Oak Blvd. location near The Galleria with easy access and parking,” said Katie Twidwell, M.M.LaFleur Senior Director of Retail Operations & Experience. “The gallery-like space is a perfect backdrop for our collection, allowing us to expand our inventory beyond the pop up and also providing us the capability to host in-store events."
