Town homes, I'm guessing. Too bad they couldn't get the whole block.

 

I think townhomes are usually listed as singly family plats. This one is up as unrestricted. Leeland Place is likely condos or multi-family.

Is anyone able to see the plat?

 

I'm getting the below error message:

It would be great to see some more multi family units in the area. Eado didn't really get to take advantage of boom in apartments like the other neighborhoods.

What is the benefit of multi family units in the area? Just curious.

Multi family will hold more people than town homes. More people = more density = more retail. Also means more traffic but generally this is why people see it as a good thing to have more multi family.

I hear this is going to be retail.

 

I heard something entertainment based. Whether that is a bar, theatre, bowling alley, or concert hall - not sure. 

 

Regardless, it’ll be welcome in the neighborhood.

The developer is trying to acquire the last piece of the block. It’s listed at $425,000 for 5k sq ft. 

 

Stalemate. 

 

Edit: Looks like the price is now $375k.

This lot is being cleared. The entire block has not been acquired yet, though. 

 

Anyone have any info on what is going up here?

Finally. This block has to be one of the strangest in all of Houston. There were maybe one or two portable storage sheds on site, with a playground (?) and a bunch of 18 wheeler cabs parked there all the time. I have no clue what the property was being used for.

 

Meanwhile, the one holdout lot is fenced in with a metal gate up front, like somebody was thinking of putting up a single-family home and then just decided not to at the last minute.

 

So weird. Whatever happens to this block will be a very welcome improvement.

Bulldozers on site today. I think the last 5,000 sq ft lot was purchased by the developer. Waiting to hear back from the broker.

Is this a midrise or just townhomes?

I believe this is a restaurant/entertainment concept:

Hmm thats a pretty small footprint for an entire block. Not confident in what this will be now. Maybe one building and the rest will be parking?

I have a friend who lives across the street and he spoke with one of the workers who confirmed it's going to be a BBQ restaurant.

@Triton @Urbannizer @Subdude @editor

should we move this to Eado East End sub for the time being if this is only going to be a bbq restaurant?

"Only going to be a bbq restaurant"?!?!?!?! Are you from Texas? BBQ is the most holy, this should be pinned to the top of the forum.

And since this won't become townhomes, wouldn't it be best to change the title to at least the address and neighborhood instead? I know Leeland Place is the name of the parcel, but maybe include an address? Possibly change it to 2201 Leeland St | EaDo or 2201 Leeland St | East Downtown since this won't be named Leeland Place?

Maybe the barbecue restaurant replacing the proposed townhomes site at 2201 Leeland St is Willow's Texas BBQ?

Willow's Texas BBQ was a pop-up restaurant, then a food truck. Pitmaster Willow Villarreal stopped food truck operations recently. He also put up his truck for sale not long ago in preparation to open a barbecue restaurant somewhere in East Downtown ( EaDo )  or the Second Ward or Greater East End. My guess, he's opening here. I'm not 100% certain.

 

 

I agree, though it seems you answered your own question. We just don't know what on earth is going on here. Nothing but rumors thus far. Lets just see what happens. At that point the title can change. Would be nice for some info to be out there. Looks like we need to do a little bit more digging.

Don't want to name names in case it's not supposed to be public knowledge, but I spoke to someone who knows the owner and they confirmed Willow's BBQ will indeed be part (but not all) of what's going up on this lot.

I don't know more than I posted - supposedly this person heard directly from the owner of Willow's that they'll be going in over there. It's interesting Raus lists a different name.

I’m anxious to see the site plan on this development. Given that the vast majority of Raus Construction’s portfolio on its website looks to be soul-crushing suburban-style developments, I’m not holding out much hope for something pedestrian-friendly that helps promote walkability in the area.

 

I guess we will see.

who needs walkability when you can have 40k sq ft of parking? 😀

New renderings are up on their facebook page... actually looks like a nice place. 

 

Thanks for pointing us to those new renderings. Architecturally it’s better than expected, and from what I can tell it will front Hutchins and Leeland with no parking on those sides, which should help promote pedestrian traffic on this streets.

 

Not bad (aside from the sea of parking, but that was probably inevitable).

Agree.   The parking was inevitable but I am really digging the actual look of the place.

This will be a great addition to this part of EaDo. Bridging the gap between north and south EaDo on hutchins and st E should help make the neighborhood more cohesive.
