West Eleventh Church of God - 1001 West 11th St

Recommended Posts

So, what is this? 

I go by this building all the time. I once took refuge under its porch. 

Is it still going to be a church, or is this facelift for the benefit of industry? 

Also, are they going to knock down the attached house on the west side of the property for the benefit of parking spaces? Or did they just forget about it in the rendering?

C'mon man, how is it not obvious what they're marketing it as? Unless you think being in the "wet part of the heights" and next to a "high volume Kroger and presidio" is somehow relevant to places of worship, never mind the obvious question of why would a church need a marketing flyer to begin with?

 

Re: the render itself, looks awesome to me. Kudos to the Heights really stepping up in the quality development game.

I'll consider getting excited when I see who the tenant is. Until then, it's just another building on a site that's 80% parking lot. In fact, 13,000 s.f. of buildings are being demolished in order to provide surface parking.

I guess it would be relevant to traffic. 

I think I'd prefer this being a church, and not half parking lot. 

Also, what part of the Heights is not wet now?

Well, if it ultimately turns into a bar, the old church will surely make for some fantastic photo opportunities of lightning strikes.

Well.  Didn't see that one coming.  

 

There will be a nice pile of dead birds at the base of the big window.  HVAC and sound proofing will also be interesting.  And there will be a heckuva glare in the winter months.  But why not.  I always liked how Mark's repurposed the church except that there were no real windows (I guess back when it first opened you really did not want to see what was happening on Westheimer).  So, this could really be great if they can catch a really top notch restaurant tenant.  Might be a little over the top for another Le Peep.

Sadly, such events have yet to come to pass at Spire downtown, but maybe that's just an indication that God is agnostic when it comes to Christian Scientist houses of worship.

The south-facing wall of glass could be a challenge. Also not sure how they keep the stained glass in place if they remove the surrounding masonry. I don't think you can just lick-and-stick those windows on the new glass facade.

Looks to me that it's being marketed as a possible redevelopment for a club, lounge, or restaurant. It's not that different from the Church of Science downtown, converted into the club Spire.

Any updates on this? Did someone buy this or lease it yet?

There's a planning permit for 1001 W 11th St in the Heights. This is the site of the former West Eleventh Church of God. Revive Development is repurposing the building. 

Maybe there will be news about Revive's plans for this in the fall.

In today's real estate section of Houston Chronicle is an article about parking. It touches on developer's use of little or too much spaces allocated for parking, pros & cons of surface parking, transit, and structure parking.

 

There is this blurb about 1001 W 11th St in the Heights. This is the site of the former West Eleventh Church of God.

Revive Development is repurposing the building. The company provided some details about what's planned.




From Houston Chronicle:

 

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

His [ Bryan Danna ] company recently bought an old church on 11th Street in the Heights and is repositioning the space for a restaurant. The sanctuary will be renovated and a newer building behind the church will be demolished to add more parking.
 

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