But will there still be bowling lanes? Please say yes. I have missed those since Palace Lanes closed in 2016.

 

I had thought that there were only a couple of old-school bowling alleys remaining in the Houston area after Palace Lanes closed: Del-Mar Lanes on Mangum and Emerald Bowl on Boone Rd. But looking at Yelp, it appears that there are a few diehard AMF establishments out there. And the memorably-named South Belt/Ellington-area Armadilla Lanes II (the first one's still in Pasadena) looks like it would be well worth the trip for those who are interested in such things.

I really like this rendering. The central part with the "Bowling" sign and turquoise colored tile (perhaps) along withe the low, flat roofed canopy honors the mid-century modern aesthetic of many of the residential and institutional buildings in the Braes Heights and Bellaire neighborhoods but the colors and textures of the adjacent elements let us know this is a 21st century building and not a trite copy of something from a by-gone era. That said, I wouldn't mind seeing an animated neon sign (could be LED now I suppose) with a bowling ball "striking" some pins causing them to tumble. :)

So, hipster dude doesn't know to wash his hands after going potty (judging by his apparent path - or perhaps he's just weaving)?  Gross.

Guessing that Beardo Fedora von Skinnyjeans is headed toward, not away from, urinals next to the stalls. This would put the POV of the rendering at the door, facing into the restroom. 

 

That said, after having worked with a couple of folks in the past that seemed mystified as to the presence of sinks in public restrooms, one should never entirely discount people's capacity for being filthy.

They have beyond gutted it, there is almost nothing left of the original building. Hard to get a pic with the fencing up, but it appears like there are just a few vertical posts left. Anyone have details on the latest plan for this? Did something change?

Here's a picture from this morning, haven't seen much progress but this is the first time I have seen the construction entrance open in a while (maybe months?).

From Houston Chronicle on new mixed-use Southside Commons replacing Palace Bowling Lanes at 4191 Bellaire Blvd.



The shuttered Palace Bowling Lanes will be redeveloped into a family entertainment and office project named Southside Commons, the developer announced.

And yes, there will still be bowling.

Triple Crown Investments, a real estate investment, redevelopment and acquisition firm, will modernize the two-story, 1955 building, with entertainment, restaurant and retail space on the ground level with office and medical office space above.

“Out of all of the uses our team explored during the redevelopment process, the best, and not necessarily most economical, was to preserve the building and bring back family entertainment and other amenities that the community so desires,” Triple Crown Investments managing partner John Morton said in a statement.

Design architect Michael Hsu and architect of record Tramonte + Johnson Architects have been tapped to revitalize the property, which sits on 2.5 acres at 4191 Bellaire Blvd. in Southside Place. Opening is planned in summer of 2019.

A Q&A with Triple Crown Investments' John Morton about Southside Commons, the Palace Bowling Lanes redevelopment,. This is from Houston Business Journal, September 2018 (paywall article)


 

What kind of vibe are you looking to deliver with this project?
 

We want to create an environment that the neighborhood and the residents of Bellaire, Meyerland, West U (and others) see as an asset to those communities. We’re going to listen to the community. (We're) going to really ask our neighbors, 'What wold you like to see here?' and match that with the demand in the market.
 

(The restaurant) will probably not (be) white tablecloth. It'll (bring) a more casual, neighborhood feel. The medical users are going to be groups that are likely coming out of the Texas Medical Center who want some separation but want to be close to the medical center. The office (space) will be boutique in nature. 
 

We’re really trying to cater to what will bring it the most demand, and a lot of feedback from the local community is that (they) don’t have enough restaurants.


 

What kind of homages do you want to pay to the old Palace Bowling Lanes?
 

There will be more to come on that.

The name of the bowling alley at Southside Commons will be slightly the same as Palace Bowling Lanes. This is the homage Triple Crown Investments' John Morton teased in his Q&A with Houston Business Journal last fall.


The bowling alley's name is Palace Bowl & Social at 4189 Bellaire Blvd in Houston.


A DBA for Palace Bowl & Social was filed last month and a domain created in April by 4189 Partners, LP.

More on the bowling alley or bowling lanes named Palace Bowl & Social. This is the updated version of Palace Bowling Lanes ( 4191 Bellaire Blvd) that is part of the new development Southside Commons replacing the Palace Bowling Lanes building at 4189 Bellaire Blvd.


From a logo design contest in April:

I am looking for a cool logo design for the rejuvenation and resurrection of an old bowling alley. We are redeveloping a bowling alley into a boutique bowling center that will focus on family, food, and fun. While bowling is a primary attraction, our center will have a large social lounge as well as an arcade of games, including eSports, sport simulators, and table games. Our primary audience is families (especially the adults), so I want our logo to be sophisticated (not child-like) yet fun (at the end of the day, it is an entertainment center).
