Shown in the renderings above and in the brochures, the new Timbergrove development in Houston at 8200 Washington Ave at Hempstead Rd is named Railway Heights or Railway Heights Market.

Railway Heights or Railway Heights Market will include a  market / grocery store, farmers market, farm, food hall, restaurants,  beer garden, and a park. Also proposed for the development, a motorized parking garage and container apartments.


https://www.railwayheights.com



Here's information about it from the website:


Railway Heights will be a dynamic, ever-changing Houston institution; a participant in the wider debates around what we eat and where it comes from; a place where food is talked about almost as enthusiastically as it is consumed.
 

Railway Heights will be be a source of genuinely exceptional produce. Many of the Market’s stallholders are themselves producers: the farmer who reared the animal, the fisherman who caught the fish, the baker who baked the bread.  Together, the Market’s stalls, shops and restaurants reflect Houston’s status as a truly global city, with traditional Texas produce sitting alongside regional specialties from around the world.
 

Open seven days per week, Railway Heights Market comprises stalls and shops selling everything from vintage clothing to hand-made jewellery and artwork to gifts, music and more. There are also food stalls offering a large variety of cuisines.
 

We are Houston’s most exciting and most diverse market. We’re a place of counter culture and creativity, where people come to discover new tastes and fresh talents, to cherish heritage and embrace the original.

Here is a breakdown of what Railway Heights or Railway Heights Market, the new Timbergrove development in Houston at 8200 Washington Ave at Hempstead Rd, will include. I think Houston's SWA Architects may be the design team for this project.

Phase I


Food Hall
Over 25 food and drink concepts along with retail and speciality products!

https://www.railwayheights.com/eat/


A picture included on the website showing the layout the food hall may be going for:

Bars
Railway Heights will include three bar concepts:  a beer garden, a dog park bar, and a wine bar.

https://www.railwayheights.com/visit/


Adjacent to the market is a 13,000 SF beer garden that will feature 80 beers on tap, a dog park bar, stage, and plenty of outdoor seating.

Retail and Food Stalls
There will be an eclectic blend of goods, food, retail, and crafts stalls.

Railway Market will regularly host temporary stands for pop-ups, whether that’s a pop-up cocktail bar or an art exhibition.



Park
Located nest to the beer garden will be a 22,000 SF park and family greenspace.



Market

From the website:
Let's get back to the good old days where the local grocery store actually had products that were sourced locally.  No we won't have something for everyone.  You won't find toilet paper, or shampoo  but you will find bulk goods from local purveyors, fresh seafood from the gulf, locally raised meats, curated cheeses, and produce from all your local small farms.

https://www.railwayheights.com/grocers/

 


 

A Container Farm

From the website:
The first location of Let Us..a revolutionary salad bar concept.  Lettuce grown in containers onsite, a salad buffet and a vending machine.

Phase II

Multi-level motorized parking garage



Phase III

Container Apartments

I wish there was a proposal for putting in some kind of track crossing into cottage grove, because right now the site is really only accessible from Washington. If I lived in Cottage Grove I would love to walk or bike to something like this, but that becomes a lot less appealing if I have to go out of my way and take a pretty unappealing stretch of road.

Maybe a proposal will be made. If there are no plans for a track crossing, maybe the neighborhood can voice their concerns to the city and the developers.

Came across this concerning Railway Heights or Railway Heights Market at 8200 Washington Ave: this could be a new development from the group with the downtown Houston food halls Conservatory and Bravery Chef Hall.

The limited liability companies connected to this development under Railway Heights Gp LLC and Railway Heights LP are also connected to Conservatory and Bravery Chef Hall.

That's... probably a good sign. I've been really impressed by Conservatory, so hopefully this ends up being another great project.

Why on earth do they not align the access drive with the crossover?  As it is, this site can only be reached from westbound Washington - which makes getting to it from the actual Timbergrove or any points west a real PITA.

It is a good sign if this is a project from Lian Pham and Anh Mai of Conservatory and Bravery Chef Hall.

And if it isn't their project, although I'm assuming it's a strong possibility it is, this development could be cool. It would be a true food hall and market.

I like that apartments are being considered for this development. If the apartments are built later as planned, and there are new residences nearby, the city will have to look into new roads to ease the growing traffic.

This is the 2nd proposed motorized parking garage I've seen in the last few months (the other on White Oak). Without that structured parking, all that park space would be a surface lot.

 

If these types of motorized parking structures take hold, it reduces the land value per sf at which it makes economic sense to go from surface to structured parking, and can potentially increase commercial density by a factor of 2x.

Yeah, I reside not too far from this project. Drive by it daily on my way home. They've been doing a lot of work on it already.  Manufactured Metal frame buildings like this are hard to modify, so its great they were able to get it done. 

I agree with the connection to cottage grove to the back side of this property. However, there are plans to eventually continue the white-oak bike trail along this rail spur and down to Memorial park. Perhaps it would connect with this.

Yes. Work on the building has been ongoing from what I heard. More old buildings should be rehabed or repurposed if it's possible. It hurts my spirit when developers bulldoze these types of building instead of reworking their visions into existing structures.

From Houston Business on Railway Heights and Railway Heights Market at 8200 Washington Ave.

 

...A new food market project — similar to Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia and Chelsea Market in New York City — is planned for the western edge of the 610 Loop.

Railway Heights Market is expected to open in 2019 at 8200 Washington Ave., according to its website and confirmed by a spokesperson for the developer, a Chicago-based company called My Park Easy.

The project will not only have a 40,000-square-foot warehouse filled with vendors selling food, art, jewelry and more, but plans also call for a half-acre of green space and a 13,000-square-food beer garden — and that’s just phase one. 

 

Railway Heights describes its tenants as such: “Many of the Market’s stallholders are themselves producers: the farmer who reared the animal, the fisherman who caught the fish, the baker who baked the bread.” It also states that there will be stalls selling vintage clothing, handmade jewelry, artwork and a wide selection of cuisines. Live music is also expected.

...So far, 25,000 square feet of the two-story, 40,000-square-foot warehouse has been leased to Company of Nomads — which includes the principals behind Silent Theatre Group, Anh Mai and Lian Nguyen’s restaurant group — the spokesperson said. Silent Theatre oversees Prohibition Supperclub & Bar, Conservatory and the upcoming Bravery Chef Food Hall.

 

About 15,000 square feet on the first floor of the warehouse is still available for lease, the spokesperson said. The brokers — Simon Ha and Daniel Hollek of Houston-based Centric Commercial Real Estate Advisors — and the developer are looking for either restaurant tenants or coworking groups.

...Houston-based Method Architecture is the architect for the first phase, but the general contractor has not been chosen yet, the spokesperson said. So far, the 40,000-square-foot warehouse has been
completely stripped, and construction for the remodel is expected to begin within the month. 


Plans for phase two are still in the development stage, the spokesperson stressed, but Railway Height’s website shows the potential for container apartments, or micro-units built out of containers. The project is also expected to house a motorized parking garage for 600 cars.


The spokesperson said My Park Easy has owned the land for about seven or eight months.

Houston Chronicle piece questioning if Houston can sustain the new food halls and markets. The focus is Railway Heights at 8200 Washington Avenue, with more details from managing partners Anh Mai and Shepard Ross, and a history of Houston's markets.


 

On a 100-degree afternoon, I met Anh Mai and Shepard Ross. Mai is managing partner of Railway Heights as well as downtown developments Conservatory, Bravery Chef Hall and Prohibition Supperclub & Bar. Ross, a longtime restaurateur, is Mai's partner in this project and Bravery Chef Hall.

We stood on the second floor of the warehouse overlooking what will become a kid-friendly park, dog run and weekend farmers market. Though the gutted warehouse, which once housed a rug store and an interior design studio, is surrounded by scraggly grass and hard-packed clay, the two have a clear vision. The project will include 40 to 50 stalls — 20 will be restaurants located primarily on the second floor. They will share a common eating area and be joined by a wine bar.

Mai and Ross plan on working with locally owned mom-and-pops and first- and second-time restaurateurs who reflect Houston's diversity: "Viet-Cajun crawfish, Polish and German food, Mexican, and more," Mai said. Ross added that they won't be including chains like Chipotle or Marble Slab.

They will taste-test each vendor and plan on making the vendor economics work by offering compact, well-designed stalls that will keep start-up costs much less than those of a food truck. They envision using their experience at Conservatory and Bravery Chef Hall to create an incubator for new chefs and restaurants.

The retail side of the project will include a flexible mix of clothing, gifts, maybe cookbooks and, what might be most interesting, a first-floor "grocery store" that will consist of bakers, cheesemongers, vendors selling locally grown produce, butchers, etc., each operating as separate businesses. They also plan on hosting a farmers market on Saturdays and Sundays with the traffic from the other onsite businesses driving customers to the farmers.

More on Railway Heights at 8200 Washington Avenue in Houston.


From CultureMap:

Set on an undeveloped property at 8200 Washington Ave., the project will include a two-story market with up to 50 vendors, a promenade for events, a 14,000-square-foot beer garden, 15,000 square feet of co-working space, and, eventually, a 600-car automated parking garage.

Although the property currently only contains the concrete and steel frame of a two-story building, Mai sees it as what it will look like in a year: a building with glass walls that overlooks the beer garden — complete with a shipping container bar and a stage — a dog park (fans of the shuttered dog park bar The Boneyard take note), and even a children’s playground. Upstairs, a second story mezzanine will extend out over the promenade.

“[Downstairs] is the grocery story part of our market. That [upstairs] is everything else: food hall, retails, arts, and crafts.”

From Houston Business Journal, Phi Nguyen of The Waffle Bus and The Pho Spot will be a tenant at Railway Heights, the Housotn food hall at 8200 Washington Ave.


He added that he’ll also be opening two concepts inside the upcoming Railway Heights Market, a massive culinary project that’s expected to debut in 2019 at 8200 Washington Ave.

...Meanwhile, at Railway Heights Market — a 3.6-acre development that will include a 40,000-square-foot warehouse filled with vendors selling food, art, jewelry and more — Nguyen will open an outpost of The Waffle Bus and a new concept called Seafood Kettle. This new eatery will cook meals in small, personal-sized kettles in front of guests.

The Waffle Bus' sales totaled about $956,000 last year, Nguyen said. He used his own savings to open the food truck as well as The Pho Spot, a concept inside downtown food hall Conservatory that he created with Danny Pham. However, to help finance the build-out of the Heights storefront and the upcoming stalls at Railway Heights Market, Nguyen said he plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Houston-based NextSeed in the next few weeks.

From Houston Business Journal, more on Railway Heights, the Housotn food hall and market at 8200 Washington Ave.

The article is behind a paywall. Here are the main snippets from my subscription:

 

The 3.6-acre Railway Heights Market is expected to open in 2019 at 8200 Washington Ave. near the western edge of the 610 Loop. Chicago-based developer My Park Easy tapped Anh Mai and Lian Nguyen of Prohibition Supperclub & Bar and food hall Conservatory and sommelier Shepard Ross to help curate the development’s food market inside a two-story, 40,000-square-foot warehouse."

After Conservatory, we wanted to do the next step,” Mai said. “And that was trying to do a market at the time when Houston didn't have a huge market like some cities like Spain, with fresh fish and produce, foods, retail, arts and crafts.”

For the trio — who are also behind the upcoming Bravery Chef Hall inside Aris Market Square at 409 Travis St. — this is a project they’ve been planning for two years...but finding the right spot for a such a large food market was tricky.

"In order for a project of this size to work, the economics have to work,” Mai said. “It had to be in an area that was underdeveloped but still inside the Loop.”

Ross added that they needed a large enough piece of land that’s accessible and has reasonable rates. He explained, “It's easy to find a cheap piece of land that nobody can get to.”

...Additionally, reasonable leasing rates are key to the trio’s vision of the market, which will include about 20 restaurants and 20 stalls of bakery items, fish, meat, produce, cheese and artisans’ work.

“The rents are affordable, and therefore we can do a lot of cool stuff,” Mai said. “When the stakes are higher, it's harder to take bigger risks. But when it's lower, you can do a lot of cool stuff. So we're getting a lot of really cool concepts that you won't see anywhere else. … It's going to have the same spirit as Conservatory and Bravery Chef Hall; it will be an incubator with a lot of creativity, personality and originality."

...Ross is also excited by the developer’s plans for a half-acre of green space and a 13,000-square-foot beer garden, and he hinted at the idea of a dog park and a wine bar overlooking the green space.

“I envision Railway Heights as an all-day destination,” Ross said. “You can spend your entire day there. With that green space there’s the potential of having a farmers market — like a legit farmers market — on the weekends. You can get there in the early morning but can stay there all day and have something to do.”

More on the automated parking garage planned for Railway Heights, 8200 Washington Ave in Houston.


From Houston Chronicle:

 

The garage, slated to open in 2020 as part of the mixed-use Railway Heights project, essentially allows drivers to drop off their cars and let robots do the parking.

"The idea behind this is a valet experience without the valet," Yair Goldberg, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Unitronics, said. "The only interface the driver has with the system is through the entry compartment, which is the size of a two-car garage."

The process works like this this: A driver pulls into a parking bay, takes the keys and exits the vehicle, initiating the parking process through an app or by pulling a parking ticket. Through a system of horizontal and vertical lifts, the car is then moved into a storage spot.

 

The driver can retrieve the car through the app or after paying a parking fee, which triggers the automated system to load the vehicle from its spot and deliver it to its owner.

Through the app, the driver is informed of the status of the vehicle, similar to how Uber notifies users of their driver's ETA.

Taking out the human element allows more cars to be stored in smaller spaces -- sometimes a third of what would be required in a traditional garage, Goldberg said.


 

...The Washington garage will be about 89 feet tall with a footprint of 18,000 square feet.

U-tron will develop the systems for a Chicago-based development group.

"U-tron's automated parking design enables us to develop and optimize both the commercial and residential aspects of our developments, while improving the return on investment and delivering a first-in-class parking experience" Jesse Levine, of Easy Park, the development company behind the projects, said in a statement.

 


A video showing how the parking garage may look and operate is in the Houston Chronicle article.

"Historic" is just a bit of verbal seasoning that always seems to accompany the term "Houston Heights," much the same way "crumbling" always seems to accompany "infrastructure."

Houston food truck Casian King is opening a food stall at Railway Heights, 8200 Washington Ave. Casian King owners also own Moku Bar at Conservatory in downtown Houston.

And another food stall announcement for Railway Heights at 8200 Washington Ave. It's the food hall and market opening in Houston.

Hand Roll Bar will have a stall there.

 


From Eater Houston:

 

Hand Roll Bar, a brand new eatery devoted to temaki (or sushi hand rolls), is slated for the buzzy forthcoming Railway Heights development.

 

As Eater previously reported, Railway Heights is a project of Silent Theatre Group which also operates popular food halls Conservatory and much-anticipated Bravery Chef Hall. When it debuts at 8200 Washington Avenue in Timbergrove next year, Railway Heights will bring more than two dozen eateries to the area, along with a grocery store, beer garden, container farm, and farmer’s market in a 22,800 square foot space.

 

The newly announced addition Hand Roll Bar is from Tuan Tran, the mind behind Conservatory poke joint Moku Bar and Korean barbecue food truck Casian King. Menu details are scant at this point, but Hand Roll Bar’s Facebook page suggests that it will serve sushi-grade fish and seasoned warm rice wrapped in crispy sheets of nori with sauces that are made in-house. “[These are] not your typical hand rolls you see at any sushi joint,” the page reads. Hand rolls are picking up steam in Texas as a full-blown trend. As Eater recently reported, two Uchi-trained chefs will open Handies Douzo next year, in addition to recent hand roll arrivals in the Dallas area.

Casian King

This crowning food truck achievement, running all around town for four years now, is all about the Vietnamese-Cajun style. You can find the eats in Timbergrove at the end of this year — owner Tuan Tran says it’s too soon to disclose the exact location of his new restaurant.

I'm late to finding this topic but this has some similarities to the Legacy Hall concept in Frisco, TX.  My brother lives a block away from it so we went there back in January, very cool spot!  It's A-framed like this building and has three floors...first floor is a food hall with restaurants lining the outer perimeter, second floor has more seating, a couple bar areas and the third floor is a brewery/restaurant.  There is also an outdoor stage for live music and performances and you can view it from the second and third floors.  I'm excited for this to open now, it should be a pretty popular venue if done right.

Thanks, Urb.

 

I do wonder if the new landowners will keep the Haven at Washington name. Were there models of the proposed apartments before? It would be neat to see the renders from before and compare it to the changes now.
