The Ancorian re-adaptive development at 2339 Commerce at Canal has a new name: The Block.

In addition to creative offices, other tenants desired includes restaurants, a distillery, or a brewery.

Unable to archive the Loopnet page for this development (useful because Loopnet has implemented new measures where the site either deletes listings or remove all images and pdf files once a listing has been leased or sold), but here's a screenshot of the page.

Does anybody know the latest on this project? There hasn’t been any activity on site for months. 



Update on The Block at 2339 Commerce from Houston Business Journal this week:

 

Houston-based Ancorian, a real estate development company, recently broke ground on a 44,000-square-foot warehouse reuse project at 2339 Canal St. in east downtown, Michael Sperandio, a founding partner at Ancorian, told the Houston Business Journal. When the project delivers near the end of 2019, it'll likely contain coworking space and one or two retail or restaurant concepts, Sperandio said.

"It’s east downtown proper, it’s not EaDo, but we’ve taken this old metal building and started working on bringing it back to life," Sperandio said.

The project, dubbed The Block, has been underway for around two years since Ancorian acquired a 70,000-square-foot industrial warehouse on 2.5 acres at Canal Street and Colby Street, Sperandio said. Ancorian demolished part of the warehouse, which made room for around 200 parking spots at the development. Houston-based Method Architecture is the architect and Houston-based Course Construction is the general contractor.

The project has garnered attention from major coworking companies, including New York-based WeWork, Sperandio said.

"They came and toured it," Sperandio said of WeWork. "I don’t know if we’re the right fit for them — we’re not a typical office space like they've taken in the past — but they’re aware of our property. … I know they want to be in east downtown."

Some coworking companies have expressed interest in leasing the entire property, Sperandio said. The project's also received interest from makerspace companies, or coworking space that's geared toward craftspeople and artisans in need of studio space.

What does this quote mean?  EaDo is short for East Downtown, and this block looks pretty far away from "downtown" regardless

I think they are trying to say it's not in the official EaDo boundries.  Technically, it's in the second ward but I'd bet people will just say EaDo anyway.

I think the Second Ward name is still sticking for the most part, but there is definitely some name-creep occurring in the area, thanks mostly to town home developers.

 

The worst part about living in Second Ward is having to correct all of the people that call it EaDo. The BNSF rail line provides a clear boundary, so I’m not sure what’s so confusing about it. Oh well.

Do people really still use the ward designations?? Outside of Fifth Ward/Third Ward rarely are the other areas referred to as such.

Yes. Although, 2nd Ward is the least heard.

^^ Unless you live in or near there.  Then you hear it all of the time. 

Don't forget Old Sixth Ward or Forth Ward/Freedman's Town, either.  They’re not going away.  First Ward, Art District is pretty proud too. 

 

So, other than First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Wards, nobody really refers to the wards as wards.

:lol:

 

As long as Google maps still labels the area Second Ward, I don’t think the designation will go anywhere. If anything, it might help broaden use of the name.

And I have a bridge to sell you too. I live in the East End and the use of Second Ward is nonexistant. Let them tell you there is no such thing as EaDo, but those are lies regarding the use of 1st/2nd/4th/6th wards. I find it funny you throwing in “Freedman’s Town” when that area clearly isn’t referred to that.

For me that’s false. I’ve lived here ten years and have heard both Second Ward and East End used interchangeably when describing the area. Only in the last 3-4 years has the EaDo word spilled over the railroad tracks and into the western portions of the East End/Second Ward.

I’ve lived in the area for about four years myself, and I would agree with this for the most part. The one caveat I will add is that (I think) the recognized boundary of the Second Ward ends at Lockwood, whereas the East End refers to the area well beyond that. So, there is some overlap but the names aren’t necessarily interchangeable.

The “Greater East End” is an umbrella term that overlays the area of Second Ward and the neighborhoods of Pecan Park, Magnolia Park, Lawndale/Wayside, Eastwood and Central Park. The East End Management District office is actually located at 3211 Harrisburg near Sampson, well outside and west of the “Lockwood boundary”. But I do agree that you are correct on the Second Ward neighborhood boundary ending at Lockwood.

The Second Ward goes past Lockwood to Terminal

Of course, when technically speaking, but in modern times I’ve rarely heard the neighborhood north of Harrisburg and east of Lockwood referred to as Second Ward. That area usually goes by Central Park. It’s no wonder the EaDo name is creeping in all over the East End, everyone seems to have a different name for the same neighborhood. Lol.

I completely agree with you. I didn’t mean that the two areas are delineated by Lockwood. I meant that the East End includes Second Ward but extends well beyond that to include the other neighborhoods and areas you mentioned—hence the “overlap” comment. 

 

I probably could have been a bit clearer with my statement. My apologies.
