From Swamplot:


Another potential future target in striking walking range of that 542-space parking lot Lovett Commercial looks to be planning at Center and Silver streets: the color-splashed warehouse redo sketched out above, as seen in another of the company’s current leasing fliers. This one is for a facelift of the 1970s building former occupied by Mass Electric Construction Company at 1201 Oliver St., a few blocks west down the railroad tracks past Sawyer St.

Frank Lui is renting out 1201 Oliver for events while he and his Lovett Commercial team work on this development. He set up a site with several of the properties he owns called Canvas HTX. Here are pictures from inside 1201 Oliver.

Does anyone know if the cidery going in the Lovett Commercial property at 1201 Oliver St is Permann's Cider Co. ? There was an article about them in Houstonia and the owner said they're moving to a bigger facility downtown that will include a taproom. The cidery is located downtown presently:


Permann eventually decided to call her new venture The Permann’s Cider Company, and set out to travel the United States and even Mexico to taste an estimated 300 ciders before selecting her favorite recipe. The longtime Houstonian opened her distribution center downtown and began selling her ciders in December 2016.

But for now, her mind is occupied with big plans for Permann’s future—namely, relocating to a bigger space within downtown to combine in-house cider production with a tap room that will be open to the public. She anticipates the tap room will open in spring 2018.

I can't think of any where downtown a cidery would open, but I can think of several places in First Ward, the Arts District, Near Northside, and Heights where one could, like this property that has a cidery included in the site plan.

First reported details on the warehouse redevelopment at 1201 Oliver St from Lovett Commerical.

From Houston Chronicle:


Sawyer Yards, the urban arts enclave spanning several city blocks northwest of downtown, is poised to grow with an expansion that will bring a New Orleans brewery, a local cider maker and a barbecue spot to the Arts District development.

Lovett Commercial, one of the founding developers of the 40-plus-acre project, said it plans to add two buildings within the next two years.

Sawyer Yards, which has been called an "artistic village," houses more than 300 local artists, restaurants, fitness concepts, public galleries and breweries in restored warehouses in the historic First Ward neighborhood.

The first building in the expansion is the conversion of a 65,000 square-foot warehouse at 1201 Oliver Street.

A New Orleans-based brewery will occupy 12,500 square feet, which will include an outdoor beer garden.

Other concepts include a local cidery and "the reopening of a celebrated barbecue house," the developer said.

Renovations should be complete in the spring.

Possibly about 1201 Oliver St, part of the Sawyer Yards expansion in Houston:

From PaperCity magazine:
 

There will be other tenants, depending on how it shakes out so far as square footage. Likely another couple of large restaurants and quite a bit of unique urban entertainment concepts,” Lovett Commercial’s Erin Dyer tells PaperCity.
 

 “A tenant we’re working with is an axe-throwing concept. It’s a fun experience we’re bringing to the campus. We’re able to do that because we have large buildings we’re able to repurpose. It’s hard to find that amount of space in urban Houston.”
 

“These old buildings — you can’t really create them. It’s an experience in addition to going to a salon or fitness. It’s an experience that you really can’t recreate or mirror simply because of the unique feel to the area,” Clay Mealy of Lovett Commercial adds.

The guy at Houston Beer Guide asked about the New Orleans brewery on his Facebook. Someone claims to have sources that know that's the brewery opening there.

Thanks for the Houston Beer Guide shoutout! A link to this post was shared on our Facebook page talking about the Chronicle article. This site is pretty cool - you’ll probably see more of me around here. 

 

To clear things up a little bit (or make things worse?), I reached out to Urban South, the New Orleans-based brewery alluded to in the Chronicle article. They’re definitely planning a Houston brewery, but the developer got ahead of themselves in announcing this. I’m not sure if that’s just because it will be a year or two before the brewery is open, or if the location hasn’t been finalized on Urban South’s end. 

 

I’ve also been told that there is a distillery planning to open in this space as well.

A brewery, distillery, and a cidery? Add a winery and this could be a one stop drinking stop.

I've heard the same about Urban South from someone who knows the owner, sounds like probably 2019 opening. They brew great beer and their brewery in New Orleans is very cool, a big warehouse-y space (think Eureka Heights or 11 Below) that's a fun spot to hang out and watch spots or play games. They had a Saints game on when I was there and it was a great environment. Hopefully we get something similar in this location.

Maybe Urban Axes will open at 1201 Oliver, maybe not. There are other axe bars in planning for Houston.

 

Am I the only one who finds it surprising that multiple people are investing money in the idea that alcohol and axe-throwing are a good combination?

Urban South Brewery announced the expansion to Houston publicly.


From Eater Houston:

 

The largest craft beer brewery in New Orleans picked Houston for its first foray out of Louisiana. Urban South Brewery plans to open up a Houston brewery this fall, bringing a 14,000-square-foot location to 1201 Oliver Street in Houston’s Sawyer Yards district. The Houston brewery will include a 10-barrel brewhouse and canning line, along with a public taproom with a large patio and beer garden.

 

“Houston was an easy choice for our first satellite brewery. The connections between the city and New Orleans run deep, and we love that their craft beer culture is forward-thinking, innovative and rapidly growing,” founder Jacob Landry said in a press release. “We’re excited to be a part of this creative community, sharing the grassroots gospel of good beer in the South.”

 

Right now, Urban South Brewery’s known for brews like Holy Roller IPA and a lager called Paradise Park, but the Sawyer Yards will create Houston-specific beers too.

New Orleans brewery taps Houston to open big new brewhouse in Sawyer Yards

 

Urban South Brewery, a crowd-pleasing brewery that is a fixture on the New Orleans hops-loving scene, is planning to open a 14,000-square-foot brewery in Houston.

The brewhouse, which will include a brewing facility, canning line and 3,500-square-foot beer garden, will go up at 1201 Oliver in the Sawyer Yards complex of industrial warehouses, art studios, galleries and restaurants. The 10-barrel brewhouse, canning line and public taproom is expected to open in fall 2019.

"Houston was an easy choice for our first satellite brewery," said Jacob Landry, who founded Urban South in 2016 in New Orleans' Lower Garden District. "The connections between the city and New Orleans run deep, and we love that their craft beer culture is forward-thinking, innovative and rapidly growing. We're excited to be a part of this creative community, sharing the grassroots gospel of good beer in the south."

The Houston project will be led by brewmaster Dave Ohmer, formerly with B-52 Brewing Co. in Conroe. According to a press release Ohmer will bring his popular hazy IPAs, stouts and barrel-aged sours to Urban South, which already produces beers such as Charming Wit (brewed with coriander and orange peel), Paradise Park (an American lager), Coop'd Up (a soured farmhouse ale), and Carpe Rose (a cider ale with a cranberry finish). There will be 16 rotating taps in Houston, taproom tastings and beer-to-go options.

Urban South will make beer only to sell onsite. According to Nola.com, "The beers in Houston will be more challenging and experimental, closer to what Urban South sells now at the brewery than the more crowd pleasing beers it distributes to retailers.

This will be Urban South's first brewery outside Louisiana.

First reported details on the warehouse redevelopment at 1201 Oliver St from Lovett Commerical.

From Houston Chronicle:


Sawyer Yards, the urban arts enclave spanning several city blocks northwest of downtown, is poised to grow with an expansion that will bring a New Orleans brewery, a local cider maker and a barbecue spot to the Arts District development.

Lovett Commercial, one of the founding developers of the 40-plus-acre project, said it plans to add two buildings within the next two years.

Sawyer Yards, which has been called an "artistic village," houses more than 300 local artists, restaurants, fitness concepts, public galleries and breweries in restored warehouses in the historic First Ward neighborhood.

The first building in the expansion is the conversion of a 65,000 square-foot warehouse at 1201 Oliver Street.

A New Orleans-based brewery will occupy 12,500 square feet, which will include an outdoor beer garden.

Other concepts include a local cidery and "the reopening of a celebrated barbecue house," the developer said.

Renovations should be complete in the spring.

The cidery for the Sawyer Yards expansion in Houston at 1201 Oliver St changed names.

Instead of HTX Cider,  the name is City Orchard.

https://cityorchardhtx.com




More about City Orchard  found online in a job posting (archive link):

 

City Orchard is an urban cidery located in the heart of Houston.  With 5000 ft2 of production and 5,000 ft2 of tasting room and outdoor deck, City Orchard will be a busy, yet relaxing space to enjoy locally-produced cider and beer and selected wines.  Food that pairs well with cider will be served on premise.
 

The creation of local cidermakers, Mat Smith and Patrick Kwiatkowski, City Orchard produces hard ciders in Houston from the highest quality, personally selected cider apples from the Great Lakes Region.
 

Originally from New York and Michigan, since 2000 Smith and Kwiatkowski have called Houston their adopted home.  Mat’s family orchards are on the shores of Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario and City Orchard’s fruit is currently sourced from the Smith Brothers Farm or nearby friends and neighboring farms.   City Orchard hand selects apples, brings them down to Houston and creates the wonderful cider that Great Lakes apples make.
 

An urban cidery is just like one among the orchard – the apples just sneak in on a truck.
 

Although City Orchard has deep roots in Great Lakes Apple Country, this is HTX-made cider.  We bring the country’s best orchards to you in a bottle.  Managing the process from tree to glass, City Orchard is an orchard in the city.

From Houston Chronicle:


 

Axe throwing, barbecue, craft beer and cider are coming together in the newest phase of Sawyer Yards, an urban enclave spanning several city blocks northwest of downtown.
 

Developer Lovett Commercial said several new tenants have signed leases for space in a 65,000-square-foot warehouse at 1201 Oliver St. that's being converted to house retailers and creative office space. The tenants include:
 

Urban Axes, an indoor recreational ax-throwing facility, which will be the company's eighth outpost and will occupy 10,300 square feet.

 

City Orchard, Mat Smith and Patrick Kwiatkowski's cidery that will produce hard ciders from apples from the Great Lakes region.
 

Fainmous BBQ, a Tennessee-style barbecue restaurant with an eatery in southwest Houston.
 

Urban South, a New Orleans craft brewery, which will occupy 12,500 square feet.

If you look around Center Street, and just to the left of 1201 Oliver, there are numerous cool warehouses. The one west of this Oliver property maybe the coolest / oldest. It is brick inside with awesome soffits and wood work. That one MUST be saved. The ones between Center Street and the railroad are also very cool masonry buildings that I believe should find modern use with some refurbishment...

 

Really excited about the potential of this area. Old warehouses are my fave.

I completely agreed. If a building can be saved and repurposed into something viable for the community, I'm for it.
