An employee of Danton’s told Eater that it’s leaving its current spot in the Chelsea Market complex because the building will reportedly be torn down.

 

Do we know of anything "cooking" at this site?

 

I could easily see a mid/high rise going in at this site.

Is it only Danton's that's leaving Chelsea Market?  Or is the whole complex being demolished?

 

I wonder what it'll be?  Would love to see a more modern retail concept in that space.  Chelsea Market is definitely aged looking, and not in a good way.

Don't forget to show my upper floors to the people. They're well worth seeing. 

 

What does that mean?  What's on the upper floors?

I'm making a French Revolution reference for Twinsanity. Georges Danton, by all accounts a hideous man, remarked that his executioners should show his "head to the people. It's well worth seeing" after it was chopped off.

I get my hair cut at Blue Mambo in that retail center and my hairdresser told me a few months back it (Chelsea Market) was under contract to an apartment developer and they were not renewing leases for any tenants.  I went again this last week and apparently the deal has closed because Blue Mambo will be moving in November.

 

As far as the original thread, my hairdresser did say that it had previously been under contract a few years back but the deal fell out.

I've never understood exactly why Chelsea Market didn't do better. I don't know if it was the location on Montrose just next to the freeway or the traffic patterns on Montrose or  unpopular lease's. So many business came and went. 

Similarly I don't know why Shepherd Plaza has so much trouble leasing, but it might also have to do with inaccessibility with the way Richmond blocks any west bound traffic entrance  except at Greenbriar. I know that at one time HEB was in the picture but I wonder what their plans are now since they have Dunlavy and Kirby at Alabama planned. It seems with those two stores a third at Shepherd and Richmond would be saturation.

Ugh. EDI. I don't hold out much hope for this one but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. 

 

It looks like they are doing what they can to make sure Montrose never becomes a walkable boulevard, with parking garage entrances and no GFR. This city deserves itself.

Apartment projects on former Chelsea Market site, near Memorial Park, to start construction later this year, filings show

 

broadstone-heights-1*750xx1496-842-0-65.

A rendering of Alliance Residential's Broadstone Heights multifamily development. Filings show the developer has two more in-town apartment projects in the works.

 

State filings show Phoenix-based Alliance Residential plans to start construction on two more in-town apartment projects later this year.

 

Broadstone Memorial Park at 7721 Washington Ave. will be across Interstate 10 from Memorial Park and Broadstone Museum District at 4617 Montrose will rise on the site of the former Chelsea Market development vacated by tenants late last year.

 

Requests for comment from Alliance weren’t immediately returned.

 

Both filings on the state’s licensing and regulation department website list Aug. 1 as a start date and attribute Houston-based EDI International as the design firm for each project. Contractor information wasn’t listed.

 

EDI International’s website describes Broadstone Museum District as a 16-story high-rise with four floors of parking beneath and 357 units. Until now, Alliance hasn't built a high-rise project in Houston, said Bruce McClenny, president of ApartmentData.com. He defines high-rises as at least nine stories tall.

County appraisal records show Alliance doesn’t yet own the tract of land appraised at $8.9 million in 2018.

 

County records show the land slated for Alliance’s Broadstone Memorial Park at 7721 Washington Ave. belongs to an entity Silver Eagle LP and was appraised at $11.09 million in 2018. That entity is tied to the same mailing address as the headquarters for Silver Eagle Distributors. The Houston-based distributor of Anheuser-Busch products has its headquarters at 7777 Washington. Requests for comment from Silver Eagle weren’t immediately returned.

 

Last month the Houston Business Journal reported Alliance filed building permits with the city of Houston for $28.8 million for a project named Broadstone Minimax at 2717 Minimax, north of Memorial Park.

 

Alliance also has several projects under construction around Houston, including a couple in the Heights-Washington Ave. submarket. It recently filed permits for $35.2 million for its eight-story Broadstone Tortilla Factory project in the Heights, off 15th Street and North Shepherd.

THE SHOPPING center at the southwest southeast corner of Montrose Blvd. and 59 known as Chelsea Market has just recently gotten the chain-link wraparound, as shown above from the west (top) and east (above). Its days had been numbered ever since plans showing a Broadstone apartment tower in place of the 3-building retail complex surfaced online last year.

Renderings of the tower, to be named Broadstone Museum District, show it rising 16-stories high:

You wouldn’t know it from the images above, but that’s 4 stories lower than The Carter (formerly Chelsea Montrose) highrise next door.

How will the amenities at Broadstone be compared to the taller Carter next door? Will they both be targeting the same demographic?

Looks like it is 15 stories and not 16 as the thread title states.

 

And yet the rendering appears to show a 16 story building.

Tower crane going up this weekend, an Alliance company worker show me the EDI rendering and it's going to be the 8 story with a crown, 2 year project. The tower crane is going to have two electric signs on the rear right side of the crane, "Alliance" and "Texas A & M" since it's an Aggie led company.

More from the tower crane installation, the Alliance worker showed me his rendition and I showed him this one and he said "that's it" his rendition was from a different angle but look like the same building. Alliance also built the building on 20th St, this tower crane came from that site. Hopefully someone can catch the signs lit up tonight when the sun goes down. It should be visible from 59/69 going westbound as the crane will be weather vained since the wind is currently out of the southeast.

Mods or @wilcal need to change the title to 8 story, as much as many of us wanted a high rise it ain't happening.

Okay. Maybe there will be a firm confirmation or announcement of the changes soon.

 

Since they only dug out a one story basement garage, that is pretty much a confirmation for me.  I am going to iggy this story if so ....  a generic 8 story apartment building is rather "ho-hum" in this part of town

That is pretty common for many mid and high-rise projects across Houston.

 

I think the worker may be confused? Maybe his source is from the article HBJ posted back in February - there’s a number of projects underway by Alliance Residential.  I’ll change the thread title once we get better confirmation.

Just to confirm, no ground floor retail is planned for this, correct? I think a coffee shop would do well here. The closest ones are Black Hole and Siphon.

Well, keeping it "mid-rise" is the desire of the Museum Park Neighborhood Association (do they even cover that part of the neighborhood?) and prolly got them out from under their whining. If its 8-9 story, with no retail/cafe I feel like thats going to be out-dated, just in terms of useage of the land,  in like 10 years. They have access to so much traffic that anything they put in would at least get a good amount of eyeballs. Boone Manor,  which is in the middle of townhomes, is gonna be 12-13 and have an on-site cafe.

 

Shenanigans.
