Stomping Grounds: Retail At 1225 W. 34th St.

Quote

The retail and restaurant explosion on 34th Street continues. Last year The Leader visited with attorney Troy Blakeney, who put up for sale more than three acres at 1225 West 34th St., near the Harriet and Joe Foster YMCA. That ownership designation is now past tense because the property has been acquired by developer Bryan Danna with Houston-based Revive Development who is envisioning big things for the space.

Marketing materials indicate that designs for the property, called “Stomping Grounds,” incorporate a repositioned existing warehouse and a new building, both with ample windows and access onto 15 feet deep patios fronting the center lawn.

The lawn would be 8,000 square feet and is intended as a family friendly destination with a “thoughtful mix of eating and drinking establishments.”

“We always look for innovative ways to add familiar elements to our projects that complement the unique personalities of our neighborhoods,” said Bryan Danna, Principal at Revive, in a press release. “As a resident of this area, I’m even more conscious of the needs and desires of the residents, business owners and families who live and work here. This is a very personal project to me.”

The 224 parking spaces will surely be a draw for potential tenants.

“We’ve already begun scheduling neighborhood events and activities for 2018 [at Stomping Grounds] including farmer’s markets, music events, and festivals,” said Monica Danna, Director of Community Outreach at Revive.

“As a resident of Garden Oaks, I’m reaching out to neighbors to hear what’s most important in dining, retail, and recreation.”

Stomping Grounds will break ground this month and is expected to be completed by Labor Day 2018.

Danna is already developing 2.5 acres on the southwest corner of 34th and Ella, with signed tenants BB’s Café, Aladdin Mediterranean Cuisine, Pop & Pan and the Surfhouse so far.

The owner of the strip center that houses Slowpokes is supposed to be doing something on the adjacent property.  That caused a ruckus over plans to knock down trees and add parking by Slowpokes.  Is this development in addition to that or the same thing?  There is already site prep going on over there, but I cannot tell whether it is two different developments or one big one.

I might be in the minority here, but Revive missed the mark not leaning into adding more green space. A development like this benefits from lots of green space. It would also provide room for additional buildings in the future.

Structured parking is expensive but it would work here. I don't think there will be enough spaces with surface parking. A garage could accommodate more, because this place is going to be busy.

 

While I agree, its also on 34th Street. Its just not there yet and way beyond it in fact. These arguments can be made for stuff inside 610, but starts pushing it outside of it. I'm definitely on your side, but I'm also a realist, and this is next to Garden Oaks. I've been happy thus far with this sudden uplift of 34th street. It has a lot of potential. Revive has done a serviceable job of clean these areas up and giving them a refresh and in many cases thats all thats needed, a light touch. More heavy handed approaches can be taken later as this area will be the next growth area once The Heights packs in more.

I was actually shocked that they put in a green space in the middle of this development.  Standard operating procedure in Houston is to fill the lot with concrete.  Just look at what they did to poor Slowpokes next door.

It's there. People I know who live in Oak Forest and Garden Oaks, in online groups, and just in casual conversations , all are excited about Stomping Grounds. That excitement is going to generate big crowds and a packed parking lot. Having a garage for a project like this easily accommodates the crowds.

A garage could go in the development in the future.There is always that possibility. If the funds were available to build one along with the rest of buildings, Revive should have considered it.

This project is going to be the go-to place in Garden Oaks. From what I've seen from passing by and the site plan, I don't the developer grasped the scope of this development.

 

 


I remain in constant mourning over Slowpokes' yard. It was an added feature that made it more than a coffee shop. 

Stomping Ground's  green space will be nice , my only wish would be for Revive to increase the green space. Maybe something like Heights Mercantile, where green space and landscaping is incorporated throughout.

 

 

Agree, however, going with our initial assumption of Garden Oaks and Revive not considering a parking garage instead of a parking lot shows that there are still initial misconceptions and presuppositions to overcome for this area. This always happens for every new area that goes in a new direction. I'm the opposite when it comes to areas like Near Northside and 3rd Ward. Most people I talk to, think I'm crazy that these are going to be the next it places, but yet there is something there that has a lot of potential. On the flip side I didn't really see that initially with 34th St. Even then though this area, because its so new regarding recent development is going to have some growing pains trying to figure out not only what it wants to be, but what others will want it to be. We can probably say now that a parking garage might have been better because we now know how many people are likely to go here, but that data was probably just not there yet for Revive to consider. I've seen all these new developments by Revive as initial experiments. Most of these are easy entry flips to see what can be possible. Its the evolution thing that was discussed at length in the Camden thread. An evolution has to start somewhere, but what does that initially look like...we don't know. What will it turn into....we also don't know. Looking forward to how it grows though. Its certainly flipped my initial presuppositions for that area of town, which I'm happy about.

 

EDIT: Further on the point of "evolution" and flipping assumptions, that is the current era we are in for our city. Every proceeding era was development for established or well know assumptions. This current era of development has been the opposite. This era has been all about flipping earlier, old, or misunderstood assumptions about the city. This area of town is also now getting that treatment.

A lot of neighbors will walk and ride bikes to this development.   Not putting in a garage was not due to a misconception, and the presupposition was that people would walk.

All true but there will also be a lot of people who don't live within walking or biking distance patronizing the businesses in this development. Surface parking won't be enough to handle the crowds, like surface parking isn't enough at the Heights Water Works redevelopment from Braun Enterprises. Developments like this need parking structures and work with the city to develop off-site parking structures for the many people coming outside the neighborhood to the surrounding businesses. 

 

 

How do you define when surface parking "isn't enough"? Are businesses at the Water Works failing due to lack of access?

Seems like personal preference for now.  Time will tell I guess, but, sure does not seem like that is the case at the moment.

There is no shortage of parking near Heights Water Works, it's just (under-priced and therefore) poorly allocated. 

 

That said, given the current CoH parking rules, it may have been worthwhile for WW to have a parking structure to serve the various Braun developments in the vicinity, and allow additional retail of residential development of existing surface lots.

[...]

Despite recent policy changes eliminating minimum parking requirements near downtown and a growing social movement advocating for more biking and other alternative modes of transit, Bryan Danna, developer of Stomping Grounds, believes it’s vital to provide ample parking. In fact, he often builds more than what’s required.
 

“I don’t want to have a field of parking, but I’ve seen what it does to the sales figures of tenants. It has a massive impact,” said Danna, owner of Revive Development. “It’s a very real component of sales volumes we can’t ignore.”

...A shopping center’s lack of parking can be a deal-killer for a retailer looking to lease space there, said Lacee Jacobs, a leasing specialist with commercial real estate firm CBRE.

 

Customers crave convenience, she said, and Houston, after all, is still a driving city.
 

“Obviously landlords could save a lot of money by building less parking, but the truth of the matter is, tenants still need it for their businesses to survive,” Jacobs said.
 

That’s what keeps Danna from cutting down on parking at his centers. And it’s not necessarily the best way to optimize profits. More surface parking means less leasable space.
 

Outside of market-based parking areas, strip centers of less than 25,000 square feet must have four spaces for every 1,000 square feet, with additional spaces where there are restaurants or entertainment venues. The Stomping Grounds project, which will have about 23,000 square feet of retail space and 5,000 square feet of office spread throughout four buildings, will have an average parking ratio of 12 per 1,000 square feet — or 225 spaces.
 

 

 

So, remind me again why we need city-mandated parking minimums if developers and tenants are already acutely aware of the need to provide parking in places where personal vehicles are still the dominant mode of transport?

 

BTW, I don't disagree that the vast majority of customers for this development will need a place to park, and I'm skeptical that the land value here is high enough to justify structured parking. But there is already a massive amount of parking within 1000-ft of this site, most of which (YMCA, high school, Hare Krishna temple) will sit empty during peak hours for this development. It's not a case of not enough parking, it's a case of poor allocation.

Camerata wine bar is expanding to Garden Oaks' Stomping Grounds at 1225 W 34th St.



From Eater Houston:

 

The beloved Montrose destination for wine and small bites, Camerata, has announced plans to expand to the Oak Forest/Garden Oaks area.
 

Camerata in the Oaks, is slated to debut next spring at 1225 West 34th Street in the forthcoming Stomping Grounds development. The 1500 square foot location will mimic its sister outpost with a 10-seat space designed by Sean Garrison from Garrison Designs and Chris Nguyen. At the new 22,000 square-foot Stomping Grounds, Camerata will join other as-yet-unnamed retail and restaurant ventures within a revamped industrial indoor/outdoor space.
 

Designed as a retail wine store with a bar, Camerata will have a number of sommeliers on hand to guide drinkers, plus the shop will carry domestic and international beer. Drinkers can also take away pre-packaged food items from Paulie’s like cured meats, cheese, pasta, and sauces, plus sweets to eat at the bar or take home.
 

Camerata sommelier Tony Stein will be making to the move to Oak Forest to serve the general manager for the new location, which is opening five years after the original Camerata opened in Montrose (and 20 years after its sister restaurant Paulie’s debuted there).
 

“Camerata in the Oaks will mirror Camerata at Paulie’s commitment to small production, high-quality, minimal-intervention wine,” Chris Poldoian, Camerata Wine Director and General Manager, said in a statement. “Our goal with the wine shop is to introduce residents of Garden Oaks and Oak Forest to new varieties and regions in an approachable, friendly way.”

I saw this on Facebook and it looks like a tenant for Re:Vive's the Stomping Grounds development in Houston. This is the development under construction in Garden Oaks at 1225 W 34th St.

From a photo posted to Facebook from Construction Concepts, The Original Ninfa's spin-off Mama Ninfa's Tacos y Tortas may be opening at the Stomping Grounds. One is also opening at Understory in Captiol Tower in downtown Houston (thread about it in the Going Up forum).

This looks like it could be part of the Stomping Grounds. Maybe in building D. It's a 3,402 SF space from the last site plan made public (posted above). Building D is not shown any of the renderings for the Stomping Grounds.



PaperCity magazine interviewed Legacy Restaurants last summer and discussed plans for more Mama Ninfa's Tacos y Tortas:

“We’re looking pretty hard in various locations — The Heights, Garden Oaks areas, the Rice Village area. Washington Avenue is a possibility as well,” Horowitz notes.


https://www.papercitymag.com/restaurants/original-ninfas-restaurant-expansion-houston-uptown-tacos-y-tortas/



There is also a company entity named TYT-34th from Legacy Restaurants (The Original Ninfa's on Navigation). It could be that it's for Stomping Grounds or somewhere else on W 34th St.

Rumors are Fat Cat Creamery is expanding to Garden Oaks. A second ice cream shop is going in Re:Vive's / Revive Development's Stomping Grounds , 1225 W 34th St.

Going by the above site map, I think Fat Cat Creamery is going on the first floor of building C. There is an ice cream shop depicted in the earlier rendering above in a building shown on the site map as building C.

Construction is moving along here. From the looks of the construction progress when I passed by last week, at least one of the tenants' space may be ready to open before 2020.

Fat Cat Creamery is the ice cream shop tenant at Stomping Grounds. Stomping Grounds is the Re:Vive's / Revive Development in Garden Oaks at 1225 W 34th St.



Last week, Stomping Ground replied to a question posted on their Facebook page in May. The question asked about other tenants. Revive Development's response confirmed Fat Cat Creamery and announced another tenant:


Yes, we will make announcements on this page. Stay tuned! We have already announced Threadfare Children's Boutique, Camerata at Paulie's and Fat Cat Creamery. More being announced in the next few weeks. Thanks!

https://www.facebook.com/theSGatGO/posts/2172443132804757




There is also a building permit issued to an entity linking to Fat Cat Creamery owner Sarah Johnston.

I might be in the minority here, but Revive missed the mark not leaning into adding more green space. A development like this benefits from lots of green space. It would also provide room for additional buildings in the future.

Structured parking is expensive but it would work here. I don't think there will be enough spaces with surface parking. A garage could accommodate more, because this place is going to be busy.

Opening update on an opening timeline for wine bar Camerata in the Oaks. It's opening at Stomping Grounds, 1225 W 34th St. This is Garden Oaks in Houston.


From Houston Chronicle today:


Montrose wine bar Camerata at Paulie’s is opening a second location in Garden Oaks (1225 W. 34th) in the new Stomping Grounds development. The 1,500-square-foot Camerata Oaks — a partnership between Camerata at Paulie’s owner Paul Petronella and his general manager/wine director there, Chris Poldoian — will feature a family- and dog-friendly green space and is expected to finally be ready to welcome customers by late fall.

A lot of neighbors will walk and ride bikes to this development.   Not putting in a garage was not due to a misconception, and the presupposition was that people would walk.  



All true but there will also be a lot of people who don't live within walking or biking distance patronizing the businesses in this development. Surface parking won't be enough to handle the crowds, like surface parking isn't enough on the weekends at the Heights Water Works redevelopment from Braun Enterprises. Developments like this need parking structures and work with the city to develop off-site parking structures for the many people coming outside the neighborhood to the surrounding businesses.

Maybe Nancy Sarnoff  frequents HAIF and read this or other threads on the forum.

If so, hey, Nancy!

bill hader hello GIF



Or maybe she's heard  and read complaints elsewhere about what some may see as excessive surface parking at Stomping Grounds. Either way, Sarnoff wrote about the Garden Oaks development's parking setup at 1225 W 34th St today.


The article touches on surface parking, transist, pros and cons for surface parking for new projects and existing buildings.



From the article:

 

A shopping center under construction in Garden Oaks will have all the trappings of a trendy urban retail development.
 

Casual dining spots, an ice cream shop, a salon, wine bar and an upscale children’s boutique will fill much of the space in two modernized industrial-style warehouses positioned on either side of an 8,000-square-foot “communal lawn” where the developer will host yoga classes, outdoor movies and concerts.
 

Less trendy, though, will be the sea of parking surrounding the new project, called Stomping Grounds, underway at the corner of West 34th and Alba. A marketing flyer describes the amount of parking as “unseen in other urban retail developments.”
 

Despite recent policy changes eliminating minimum parking requirements near downtown and a growing social movement advocating for more biking and other alternative modes of transit, Bryan Danna, developer of Stomping Grounds, believes it’s vital to provide ample parking. In fact, he often builds more than what’s required.
 

“I don’t want to have a field of parking, but I’ve seen what it does to the sales figures of tenants. It has a massive impact,” said Danna, owner of Revive Development. “It’s a very real component of sales volumes we can’t ignore.”

...A shopping center’s lack of parking can be a deal-killer for a retailer looking to lease space there, said Lacee Jacobs, a leasing specialist with commercial real estate firm CBRE.

 

Customers crave convenience, she said, and Houston, after all, is still a driving city.
 

“Obviously landlords could save a lot of money by building less parking, but the truth of the matter is, tenants still need it for their businesses to survive,” Jacobs said.
 

That’s what keeps Danna from cutting down on parking at his centers. And it’s not necessarily the best way to optimize profits. More surface parking means less leasable space.
 

Outside of market-based parking areas, strip centers of less than 25,000 square feet must have four spaces for every 1,000 square feet, with additional spaces where there are restaurants or entertainment venues. The Stomping Grounds project, which will have about 23,000 square feet of retail space and 5,000 square feet of office spread throughout four buildings, will have an average parking ratio of 12 per 1,000 square feet — or 225 spaces.
 

Generally, Danna agrees with the belief that society would be better served if there were fewer cars. He hopes one day there are. Along with many others, he’s baffled by the fact that the city’s highest parking requirement — 14 spaces per 1,000 square feet — is for night clubs and bars.
 

But for now, parking remains a linchpin of his development strategy.

...“The sentiment on the street is to push politically for less parking,” Danna said. “But we’re just not there yet.”

I think the sushi restaurant planned for Stomping Grounds is named Sora Sushi, at least that was what announced in an old Re:Vive newsletter a few years ago. Sora Sushi was also listed as an upcoming tenant in a NextSeed crowdsourcing campaign for Cherry Block. The proprietors behind Handies Douzo, Kokoro, and Aiko are involved with Sora Sushi.

But those plans were in play about two or three years ago, prior to the Covid pandemic. It is possible plans have changed and another sushi restaurant may have leased the space. However, since Re:Vive is being tight-lipped anout it, I'm leaning more towards this being a new sushi-centric concept from the group behind Kokoro. Why else keep this under wraps if it a popular restaurant group isn't involved?

Hopefully, Re:Vive will announce an update soon.

The Leader reported an update on the arrival of Cherry Block, estimated to open later this summer.

 

"According to a Facebook message from the restaurant, Cherry Block Craft Butcher & Texas Kitchen currently hopes to open in the development at 1223 W. 34th St. Suite A100 by early August. Owner Felix Florez originally had plans to open in November 2021 and then July 2022."

Instead of Sora Sushi, the name of the sushi restaurant coming soon to Stomping Grounds (1223 W 34th St, Ste C-500) is Himari.

The owners of the restaurant are the same: the team behind Handies Douzo, Kokoro, and Aiko.

Himari has an Instagram account for anyone who wants to follow for updates.

According to building permits filed and a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations, the address for Pho Fix is 1223 W 34th St, Suite C200. I was unable to find an updated site plan for Stomping Grounds for a visual reference.

Pho Fix is coming to Garden Oak's mixed-use development Stomping Grounds. The TDLR filing lists the square footage for Pho Fix as 2,094 sf. Construction is estimated to begin in late fall. The restaurant could open in late spring 2023 or early summer 2023.
