What is the address of the warehouse you are referencing?

501 N Shepherd

 

It will be interesting what happens to the other warehouses in the vicinity... I can see this area take off with more multifamily in addition to a MKT campus expansion. I love that people in the area can walk to restaurants or make a pit stop there. This development is catering to the traditional consumer as well as the more pedestrian oriented consumer. A perfect blend for Houston as the emphasis seems to be refocusing around walkable places.

I admit I still drive many places. Though, my spouse works here and enjoys being able to bike to work (thankfully without going on any major streets).

Remarkable. Hoping for some retail here as well though. This angle of the rendering looks all offices. If I didn’t know any better I’d say it looks like a building for a college campus and I’m here for it

Community Impact reported fitness facility Mayweather Boxing will be opening up at this development as well.

Build out for La La Land Kind Cafe is almost complete. Ran into some of the workers taking pictures around the trail and they told me it should be ready to open in 3-4 weeks.

Central City Co-Op (currently on 420 E 20th St) is closing its doors this Sunday and moving to an undisclosed location. I’m going to type into existence that they are moving to M-K-T (based on absolutely nothing). 

I've heard from multiple people that La La Land Kind Cafe has the best coffee, super excited for that one!

This place is getting a lot of attention on Instagram/ TikTok. Their grand opening is May 7th with half priced drinks. Their drinks are actually really good, if you end up going try their matcha drinks!

Should this have its own topic?

Shepherd Trail Development.

Not saying that there isn't something planned for this property, but I haven't heard of anything happening soon.  An associate of mine told me the reason that this plat was done is because of the Shepherd/Durham Reconstruction Project and that there is an encroachment of the 651 N. Shepherd building into the North Durham right of way.

My evil side says that the solution to the encroachment is to use a 60 foot diameter saw, and remove the offending portion of the building, preferably without notice. I recall that some developer in Majorca built a taller than allowed building in the airport flight path, and was shocked to find, once construction was complete, that the government sent over a bunch of equipment and demolished the building.

Their website has said this location is open along with hours for at least three months...I would go by and of course still under construction. I just finally gave up. Glad to see they are finally almost open for real.

This is 3 new Berg concepts coming right? This plus the two at Autry Park.



I don't think so. Berg Hospitality has at least six coming down the pipeline soon.


In addition to Buttermilk Baby, Annabelle's, and Turner's Cut, there are at least three more in planning.

One restaurant is Tavola at Blvd Place. The restaurant is in partnership with the Bastion Collection. Another restaurant is slated for the Docks at Timbergrove. And one more is slated for 1818 Washington Ave:

Punch Bowl is no longer coming to 1818 Washington.

Lovett is splitting the two story unit into several units.

One of the tenants to sign on is Berg Hospitality. The group led by Benjamin Berg operates B&B Butchers next door.

Berg Hospitality applied for a TABC permit listing a restaurant named Benny Chow at 1818 Washington Ave.

I have no clue about the concept or an opening timeframe.

Berg Hospitality is leasing a unit at M-K-T mixed-use development. The hospitality group's latest Heights area restaurant is named Buttermilk Baby.

Buttermilk Baby will be located at 600 N Shepherd Dr, Ste 250, according to a recent alcohol application filing. It will occupy the jewel box restaurant space in building 2.

B&B Butchers, B.B. Lemon, B.B Italia, NoPo, The Annie, Turner's, and Trattoria Sofia are other Berg Hospitality dining establishments.

Design inspiration for Berg Hospitality Group's Buttermilk Baby. It's possible some of the elements shown will be used is some way. Also, this may offer clues about the concept, which seems to give off soda fountain shop and Americana diner vibes.

There's a perfectly good Kroger just a few blocks up the street.

Along the trail there are now two e-bike shops, dozens of restaurants and bars, multiple specialty shops and gift shops, jewelry stores, upscale retail but one still can’t find everyday items like a bodega in many other cities—produce, pantry essentials, over the counter drugs etc

It takes 30 minutes to round trip walk from this location to the Kroger on 10th. Kroger’s location is not designed for trail users or to welcome people arriving by foot or wheelchair users. 

Frankly I believe that entire block of Merchants Park is way overdue for a redesign and densification

I would love to see more trailfront bodegas, outdoorish coffee shops, taquerias, etc., not just here but along the Harrisburg and especially Columbia Tap trails as well. 

Atlanta's east Beltline has made an evangelist out of me.

No need to cross N Shepherd Dr at 10th. One can also walk along the west side of N Shepherd Dr from MKT trail to that plaza, only to cross some driveways. There will also be a trail extension to the Kroger plaza from MKT trail, aligning Durham Dr.

All of the new businesses along the trail are great, but they are usually too expensive. I'd rather ride a bike to the "car-centric" plazas.

Does anyone know what is the deal with the corner Unit at the corner of Shepherd feeder and the trail? Perfect spot for a grocer!!

They were in talks w a high-end boutique department store concept (for lack of a better term) for that spot as of a few months ago.
