2200 & 2222 YALE ST

Recommended Posts

Photo seems to imply the large building could be used for a restaurant. Unfortunately, due to CoH's ridiculous parking requirements, that would require about double the number of spaces currently available on-site. 

 

The small dry cleaning building could potentially be used for a restaurant, since it would only require 16 of the 70 available spaces.

Wow. If that really is Ramen Tatsu-Ya this is big news. Rumors of them expanding to Houston have been floating around for a couple of years.

 

 

Renderings show parking along Yale, but drawing shows the building facing Yale. It looks like they'll preserve the current dry cleaners and add on to the Alabama Furniture building, extending it North. 

 

No vehicular entrance on Yale, which I like.

 

Also Bernie's Burger Bus this close to my house is not good news for the waistline.

Uh oh.  Austin is on the creep again.  Maybe the gut busting burgers at Bernie's will help keep things in balance.

Gotta live up to that "little Austin" nickname, I guess.

Can't wait to see this!  I think this is outside the "dry area"?   It will be a profitable venture for the owner of the property as well as those who lease.

Just outside. The east side of Yale is "wet" from 22nd St. north. The west side is dry up to 26th St.

 

This map is roughly correct (the eastern boundary is a little off).

Interesting, Kim's liquor is directly across the street from where the dry line commences at East 26th and Yale. That does make sense, as all the convenience stores have historically been on the east side of Yale, from 20th up to 610. This would explain why.

Not listed?? I was looking so forward to that. That was the first restaurant me and my girlfriend went to when we went to Austin a few weeks back. It's going to be a hit when it comes here to Houston.

I'm still holding out hope for Ramen. Tatsu-ya was shown as being in the other building (the dry cleaners), and that building isn't shown on this flyer (perhaps because it's already leased?). 

 

Uberrito is what used to be Mission Burrito, right?

 

Also, good news that this flyer is still showing the building fronting Yale with parking in the back.

Bernie's is official.

 

 

 

Love it when a plan comes together! Absolutely excited for this amazing undertaking that is about to happen! Katy few weeks out, 22nd and Yale Street in the Heights deal is signed for store number 3 coming late summer next year!

From The Leader:

 

 

Jamie Weaver with Edge Realty is the leasing agent at nearby Yale St & East 22nd St. The entire block fronting Yale St. between 22nd St. and 23rd St. was purchased by Braun Enterprises, who plans to build a new retail/restaurant center from one end to the other. Bernie’s Burger Bus made a splash when they recently announced plans to move into the new building.
 

According to Weaver, there are no other signed tenants yet. He also said another restaurant is not out of the question but it would have to be smaller in scope.

“We’re talking to retail and restaurants,” he said.

Uberrito Mexican Grill wasn't listed anymore as of last fall. Here's a screenshot of the proposed site plan from either October or November (since Edge Realty deletes previous copies and updates newer pdf files to the same link/page). The estimated completion listed was the second quarter of 2016.

Here's the current one or an archived page for the redeveloped property at 2200 Yale Street in case it's updated again (this way we can refer to it and compare and contrast changes made) which lists the third quarter of 2016 as an estimated completion projection:

Demo permit for 2200 Yale (Alabama Furniture) issued today, and for 2222 Yale (dry cleaners) yesterday.

 

The dry cleaner site doesn't appear on the site plan in the current flyer. Only spaces offered on that flyer are the north end cap and the space immediately adjacent. The dry cleaner site may end up just being parking, or it may already be leased to an undisclosed tenant. It's been almost ten months with no confirmation about the ramen shop.

Making Room for Bernie’s Burgers at the Alabama Furniture Spot on Yale St.

 


Alabama Furniture & Accessories’ 2-decade locale is getting cleared out for its planned redo, a neighbor notes. The building at 2200 Yale St. got a demo permit yesterday and started coming down later in the day. The site at the corner with 22nd St. is being cleared for another Braun Enterprises project: a third non-mobile Bernie’s Burger Bus location, as confirmed in October. The furniture store (named for its original 1992 location on Alabama St.) cleared out of its Yale home by the start of March, and has flown even further north to 4900 N. Shepherd Dr. between W. 43rd St. and Tidwell Rd.

It looks as if Ramen Tatsu-ya has chosen another Edge Realty location in Montrose (thread: Austin's Ramen Tatsu-Ya Eying Montrose Location)

Well guys, it looks like there won't be much retail for this development at 2200 Yale St (link to previous site plans and renderings). TCH Pediatric Associates Inc aka Texas Children's Pediatrics and Texas Children's Urgent Care signed a lease for majority of the spaces in the center under 2200 Yale Realty (Braun Enterprises). Texas Children's Urgent Care leased the 3,000 square feet space to the right, that was previously planned for a restaurant. Next to Urgent Care is Texas Children's Pediatrics with over 10,000 square footage. 

Here is the new site plan for 2200 Yale taken from leasing documents on the Harris County Clerk website:

The Bernie's storefront should open later this summer. The Texas Children's Heights location should open in January 2017.

The 13,112-square-foot outpatient center at Yale Street is a relocation of Texas Children's Pediatric Heights at 2600 North Loop West Freeway, a Texas Children's spokesperson said. That location will have a Texas Children's urgent care center next door. It's unclear when the 2600 North Loop West Freeway location will be vacated.

Texas Children’s Hospital also signed a lease for a 19,291-square-foot location near the University of Houston, at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Griggs Road. That will be a relocation of Texas Children’s Pediatrics Cullen at 5751 Blythewood St., the Texas Children's spokesperson said. Baker Katz represented Texas Children's in its Blythewood lease.

The Texas Children's Heights location should open in January 2017. An opening date for the Blythewood location wasn't available.

Unless CoH has dramatically sped up their permitting and inspection process, there is approximately zero percent chance that Bernie's will open this summer.

Maybe they are talking about a Houston summer?  So, October would still be "late" summer.  

 

But you are right.  CoH has been terrible getting restaurant build outs permitted recently.  There are a number of projects that are just sitting right now and others that have been delayed by months thanks to CoH.  I do not see a burger coming out of this place until November at the earliest.

They have completed most of the exterior work with the exception of installing the windows at the Bernie's Burger Bus side. I only took pictures from the back of the building. Also, wanted to note that they have a bike rack!

FWIW, TCH says they'll be open for business at the new location in January.

 

I would not be surprised if they beat Bernie's, despite the announced "summer 2016" opening, given that we're now in the 2nd half of October, and the interior build-out hasn't started. Apparently it's easier to get a pediatric clinic permitted than a burger joint.

Presumably the window's aren't in yet because they still have to get the bus inside.

It does appear that TCH will be complete first.  Could be waiting to put the bus in but it also appears that the floor isn't complete.  Wondering if the final design/layout is still pending.

It appears that Bernie's is having trouble with their license and won't open until the end of July or early August.  Here is a post from their Facebook page.

From Swamplot

The rumors are correct,” Bus chef Justin Turner explains on the restaurant’s Facebook page. There have indeed been “issues with the timeliness of getting our license due to the proximity of the school.” But, Turner writes, “We had all that info even before signing the lease.” What’s the issue then? The laws regarding alcohol sales near schools “are vague and very subjective . . . different people had different interpretations,” Turner notes. The owners were “told the variance that had to be filed with city of Houston would only take 30-45 days and it went on just over 120. . . . Long story short we’re [past] the city of Houston and on to Austin where we expect no or very little delays.” Best guesses for an opening date? “Our hope is end of July or early August but unfortunately at this time it is out of our control and left up to the guidance of our legal team and the information they provide us from the city and the state.”

It looks like they're blocking off what the city must have determined is a side patio so no one can see anyone having a beer on it, in accordance with CoH ordinances.
