Yeah, this project absolutely would have happened with less parking. This was forced on the developer by the city, and resulted in a lesser product than it needed to be.

I’d say things are starting to come together at the newest LOCAL Foods.... Another collaborative project with the big boys at @hsuoffice

LOVE how this outdoor tile “rug” pattern was made with only a single striped tile, changing the direction of the stripe more randomly. The same tile, cut on the diagonal, forms the striped border.

Local Foods at Heights Mercantile on Yale opens today.

From CultureMap:
 

Local Foods, the popular sandwich concept from Benjy's owner Benjy Levit and chef-partner Dylan Murray, announced it will open its fifth Houston-area location at the Heights Mercantile mixed-use development on Friday. The 4,500-square-foot, 120-seat restaurant features design work by Michael Hsu and Micah Land of Austin's Michael Hsu Office of Architecture and designer Aaron Rambo — the same team responsible for both the Tanglewood and downtown locations — that incorporates a mix of a clean design with vintage touches.

“The design was inspired by the Heights and its distinct brand of quirky appeal,” Rambo said in a statement. “I am excited for the neighborhood to embrace Local Foods in Heights Mercantile and want guests to feel right at home whenever they stop in for a bite or drink.”

The menu, developed by Murray and executive chef Maria Gonzalez, offers all of Local's favorite items, but the presence of a Josper charcoal oven (the same piece of kitchen equipment found at nearby Coltivare) allows the Heights outpost to offer a few dinner entrees that won't be found at its siblings. They include octopus with Japanese mayonnaise, glazed pork shoulder with warm tortillas, and spiced red bird chicken. Unique side items and brunch items include marbled sweet potatoes, Lebanese rice, and vegetable ricotta kugel.

The Heights is blowing up with good quality development. Beautiful to witness. 

 

It really is mindboggling to see how far it's come and how far it's grown out... coming all the way to I-45 now. I've lived in this area now for over 6 years and it's crazy to think all the amenities we have now compared to back then...

Possibly unrelated, but Barrio Antiguo appears to be having a going-out-of-business sale this weekend ahead of demolition next week. (Demo permit issued yesterday.)

 

This project could be getting bigger (or maybe it's just parking).

there was a post on NextDoor claiming that Radom did not buy BA, somebody else did, but their building encroaches on Radoms new property by 6" so they are having to tear the building down to solve the encroachment.

Demo permit for Scootersmith (next building north from Barrio Antigo) issued yesterday.

 

That property and the one next door (Chic Warehouse) were acquired last December by an entity called "Yale Grove".

Nashville-based Lemon Laine is opening a Houston location at Heights Mercantile.


From Houstonia:

 

 

Nashville natural beauty and wellness retailer Lemon Laine announced yesterday it will open a second location this fall in Heights Mercantile. The forthcoming 1,000-square-foot space will be designed by award-winning Content Architecture, the local firm that’s also behind fellow Heights Mercantile tenant Paloma Nails.

..
The Houston location “will mirror its sister store,” the release says, with an in-house oil bar staffed by “baristas” who concoct custom, organic facial serums for shoppers’ individual skincare needs.
