On the west side of Cottage grove, but not really walkable into it. Kind of hard to get to without a car or bike. 

its kind of over near the old and original christians tailgate.

It could work.  The new Somerset Green development is just up the street.  People in Cottage Grove are always going nuts whenever a restaurant opens up near by.  A restaurant over there could also pick up on people leaving Memorial Park after an evening run.

Current tenant will not move out until October 2017.

Located within Houston's 610 Loop and just north of I-10, 7800 Washington is a unique mixed-use, adaptive re-use development in the heart of Houston. The building, a 66,000 SF red-brick, dock-high warehouse, was built in 1960 and has a rich and storied history of being home to some of Houston's notable industrial tenants, including The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, Stewart & Stevenson and Brian Thomas Display and Packaging. The building is currently occupied by Brian Thomas, which was purchased by Smurfit Kappa in 2014, and will vacate the building in October 2017. The project will then be redeveloped into a loft office development with furniture showrooms and a unique, chef-driven restaurant.

A new mixed-use development will expand the restaurant offerings of the Washington Avenue corridor.



 

The project, 7800 Washington, a 66,000-square-foot mixed-use development that'll offer retail, office and a chef-driven restaurant, is underway and should deliver in mid-2018, a source close to the deal told the Houston Business Journal. Houston-based Levcor is developing the project.

 

Like many of Washington Avenue's commercial developments, 7800 Washington is an adaptive reuse project. Levcor is redeveloping a red brick, dock-high warehouse that was built in 1960.

 

Houston-based Tramonte Johnson is the architect, and U.S. Builders is the general contractor. A building permit filed with the city of Houston listed the cost of buildout as $2 million. Gensler also did work on the project, per a leasing flyer available on Levcor's website.

 

At least 24,000 square feet in the project has been leased, per the flyer, but it's unclear how up-to-date the flyer is. A Levcor spokesperson declined to comment.

From the leasing materials for 7800 Washington Ave from Levcor, the restaurant Porta'Vino may have been shelved for this property. A restaurant space is up for lease.
 

 

Floyd was a pioneer when he opened Reef with a wine list priced pretty close to retail (<2X wholesale). The theory is that you sell more volume (both # of bottles and price per bottle), turn inventory faster, and ultimately come out no worse off, but the customer gets a better deal. Going 100% BYO means zero inventory cost (other than glassware), and the corkage fee is 100% profit. BYO places tend to also get away with slightly higher food prices than restaurants of comparable quality.

Construction work has wrapped up on an office-retail adaptive reuse project in Houston’s Washington Avenue Corridor.

 


 

The 68,937-square-foot, single-story building, dubbed 7800 Washington, was built in the early 1950s as a warehouse distribution center. However, over the past year, the building has undergone a major remodel overseen by Houston-based commercial real estate firm Levcor.

 

Levcor said in a news release that it sought to preserve some of the building’s features that recall its history as an industrial space, including red brick walls, steel beams and oversized glass windows.
