So what are the odds retail moves into their space? Parking is less than ideal if you wanted to run in and grab something quickly. 

 

less than 0, retail doesn't work well in Greenstreet.

It will either be more bars or office space. **Every** retail space has failed except the HoB Gear Shop, which would fail if it was on it's own.

I think saying "retail doesn't work well in Greenstreet" based on Forever21 and a failing chain bookstore *and* ignoring the fact that the population downtown has literally quadrupled is a bit premature. I think something that's more of a destination (like Phoenicia has largely turned out) would work fine. Like, if they put a Muji here, it would do fine.

Agree. Forever 21 is going under. It had nothing to do with it being successful/unsuccessful in Greenstreet. And bookstores are in the same boat. Small independent bookstores are doing just fine because they offer a unique experience but larger ones like Barnes and Noble won't be around too much longer. I think any retail would work here.

Downtown slowly getting all of the amenities people have been clamoring for. So now you'll have Lifetime, the Met, and YMCA all in downtown, and if LifeTime Fitness has those lounge areas and fast-healthy food like the other locations then the downtown businesses and offices without a gym/lounge area of their own can now provide that service to their employees as a benefit of being at the DT location. And DT residents can go there too, I guess 😆

 

Thanks @wilcal!

I wish this location was getting a lap pool. The YMCA is nice, but it can get crowded, and another pool downtown would help relieve that. Regardless lacking a pool having new amenities downtown will be exciting for a lot of people.

Their site does say that it will feature a LifeCafe and it has a pic of a juice bar looking kind of thing, too.

COVID created winners and losers, and a lot of that comes down to cash flow management and debt allocation. A lot, a lot of businesses were spending in pursuit of revenue, and COVID caught the ones who were stretched thin with their pants down. Even in hospitality, some private equity groups are making a killing buying these kinds of assets. The sudden-ness of the closing means they probably weren't financially liquid enough to survive the tough time, but this will most likely be sold to some PE company and continue to be what it was. So, no fretting. Can't let all those renovations go to waste!

What a death hole this whole development is.

 

I’m cautiously optimistic about the Life Time Green Street. It’s going to open in the spring and the facilities are large and incredible. I went in for a virtual tour over the weekend and joined at a discounted early rate.

Interesting to see what Brand takes over. What are the possibilities?

So many possibilities...

Let's be honest... it will be many 6 months before Marriott buys 

Marriott won't buy it.  Marriott is not generally in the business of owning hotels.

More news from Houston Business Journal:

Robert Williamson, senior vice president of investment management for Midway, called the closure temporary.

“We view this as a unique opportunity to reevaluate operations, explore ways to enhance our offerings, maximize value and reopen with minimal impact while the industry slowly recovers," Williamson said. "Providing an unrivaled hotel and dining experience remains our top priority, and we look forward to serving our guests in the near future.”

I'm thinking it will probably a one off boutique. Most of the brands you listed are already represented in Houston or this location would be significant enough for a rebrand.

Most of those brands would be perfectly happy to have more than one location in Houston.  Nevertheless, you may well be right.  That seems to be the way Midway likes to go.

just make sure that if you office there, don't get stuck on the second floor beneath the HoB. We WILL make your life miserable  between 3 and 6 when it's sound check time... those suck.
