Great find! Its about time they did something with this land. I think there is some zoning against additional Mexican food restaurants along navigation.

A blue construction fence was put up around this site yesterday.

 

Previous commercial building was demo’d back in October. They’ve been moving dirt off and on for the last few months, looks like they’re ready to get this started.

 

Have there been any tenants confirmed?

It appears they already have some tenants signed up:

- Corky's BBQ

- Allegiance Bank

 

with 2 spots to fill.

 

Building materials also appear to be downgraded from the original images floating around.

 

Unexciting nonetheless; comes across as kind of a wasted opportunity considering that the EADO Navigation (Marquette) just up the Street on Navigation / Jensen is being built on a similarly sized / shaped lot. Seems like something similar to that would be well suited at this spot.

Thanks for sharing the CBRE link/brochure. I couldn’t find that for whatever reason (I was searching by address instead of development name).

 

The difference between the building materials portrayed between the two renderings is staggering. Sure, you expect the initial one to be extra flashy and appealing to draw in tenants, but damn. . . that looks to be a huge drop off in quality/appearance.

 

Very disappointing.

More on Navigation Pleace, 2929 Navigation Blvd in Second Ward Houston.

Confirmation of tenants announced in Houston Business Journal today:


 

A new shopping center east of downtown off Navigation Boulevard with a bank and a barbecue franchise lined up as tenants will break ground in early April.
 

Houston-based Ersa Grae Corp. closed on 1.8 acres at 2929 Navigation, about two blocks from the Original Ninfa’s on Navigation, in December 2016. Reza Ebrahimi, principal, said the company waited to find the right mix of tenants before starting construction.
 

Memphis-based Corky’s BBQ and Allegiance Bank will be the first to set up shop at Navigation Place, Ebrahimi confirmed. The pair will take up about 9,000 square feet out of the total 19,000-square-foot space.
 

Ebrahimi expects a six-to-nine-month buildout for the building shell.

Damn that’s an ugly development smh 🤦‍♂️ Espeically since the other businesses along Navigation have a more walkable presence.

Agreed. It would at least be a bit better with parking in the back. The main building has a very suburban strip center feel. Ugh.

This is probably what pisses me off about Houston more than anything. Smh. Smh. 

I never understand the full logistics but the city can say no right? Or they can at least tell the developer, you need to change X, Y, and Z before we approve this, am I right?

There are way more people who can answer that question on here than me brother.  I would guess if the development fits in whatever parameters the city sets for certain developments then it’s a go. The problem would be with the City and their standards IMO.  Which is why people on here push to eliminate minimum parking requirements etc.

Swing and a miss. Another suburban-style car-oriented in a potentially walkable neighborhood.

not really.

 

the city is going to check for setbacks, and parking requirements, not just do you have enough spaces, but do you have enough room for cars to maneuver. that's about it when considering the size of the building, and where it is situated on the property.

 

considering building setback requirements it makes most efficient use of the land to put parking in front of a building. 

 

so, if you want to play a game, take the buildings they have, move them around on their site (taking into consideration building setbacks), and see if you can maintain the same number of entrances/exits, and also maintain the number of parking spaces. I bet you can't.

If we wanted to, the city could pass an ordinance requiring developments in "walk-able or high interest corridors" to have the building at the street and the parking in the back.  Of course defining the walk-able corridor would be a different issue altogether

Could be worse, honestly. At least the Corky’s patio fronts the sidewalk. 

 

Definitely better than the abandoned commercial building it’s replacing.

I don’t understand how the hell they didn’t place parking in the back when they are right along the Esplanade. Absolutely ridiculous. This might be the worst development in this area.

I’m sure the arrangement in the site plan allowed for the highest number of parking spaces possible, in order to meet the minimum parking requirements. Doing away with those minimums would eliminate that incentive for sub-optimal parking (from a walkability/pedestrian friendly standpoint) and encourage development at the sidewalks.

I can’t argue the minimum parking required for the site. My issue is it’s placement and the lack of thought from the developers on where to put it considering they are right along an area geared towards walkability.

I agree. My point was that the layout was dictated by the required parking. Current arrangement, you have one lane with two opposite rows of parking in the front, and one lane with one row against the building in the back. Even if you just switch the lanes to have the single row in the front, you’re likely to lose some parking on the side along with the placement of the patio.

 

It would be impossible to move all of the parking to the back and still keep anywhere near the same number of parking spots, which I would guess would be the difference between meeting the minimum parking requirements and not.

Yes, there are a minimum number of parking spaces required to be provided for different property types, tied to the square footage of the building. Exemptions can be requested, and there are other ways to meet the requirements (offsite parking/valet lots, bicycle racks, etc.). 

 

https://www.houstontx.gov/planning/DevelopRegs/docs_pdfs/parking_req.pdf

 

There is a current effort to eliminate minimum parking requirements for Midtown and part of EaDo, but this property in the East End would not have been included in that area, despite its proximity to downtown.

I think this should be included to any property that fronts LRT, and BRT outside CBD, and the proposed extention of this into Midtown and EaDo. Either an elimination of the requirement or 1/2 the requirement. That would be a great incentive for developers to build next to transit.

Yep. That's pretty much the plan. Check out the walkable place/transit ordinance thread.
