Hanover Autry Park: Mixed-Use At W. Dallas & Allen Parkway


Vertigo58

Recommended Posts

It sounds like this would be the lowrise retail + residential tower on the N side of the project, next to the apartment tower under construction. From a few pages back, we got a preview of what this might be:

"SITE B1
2 or 5 Story Mixed Services Concept TBD
End user is driving final concept. Once identified, design concept to be progressed further.

SITE B
High Rise TBD
No status currently"

The meeting packet identified Site B as the one I just mentioned. Recent renderings show a tower ~32 stories and a 1-2 story retail center there, so the plans may have changed (upsized even!) recently.

Looks like tower that is currently rising on screen left. 

Tallest building looks to be the office tower. New residential to its right. 

There also appears to be a new midrise office in the back of the project or has that always been there?

Small shell buildings at 3711 Autry Park Drive.  These are the circular buildings? Awesome!

I have not read the other 10 pages in this thread, so I don't know if this was shared. If not, I think the restaurants listed are Benjamin Berg of Berg Hospitality. Earlier this year, CultureMap and possibly other publications reported Berg is leasing space for several concepts for the Autry Park mixed-use. The names of the restaurants weren't disclosed.

One of the restaurants is named Annabelle's and the other Benjamin's Cut. I think the latter may be similar to Underbelly Hospitality's Georgia James Tavern.

The Houston Chronicle mentioned Autry Park and other new mixed-uses a few days ago. Buried in the article is a new restaurant opening in the Autry Park mixed-use development named Auden.

Auden is from new hospitality group Nitecap Hospitality. Their Instagram doesn't have much to offer in details, but going off the food photos on the owners' Instas alone, this may be promising.

Another food and beverage related tenant for the Autry Park mixed-use is Lick.

Lick Honest Ice Creams is an Austin-based ice cream shop. This will be one of a few branches opening in Houston. Another is coming to Midway's East River development in the Fifth Ward area.

Last month, an entity for Lick Autry Park LLC was established.

Turner's Cut may be the name of one of Berg Hospitality Group's new restaurants at Autry Park. It could be the new working name replacing Benjamin's Cut.

A domain was purchased this summer for Turner's Cut linking to Berg Hospitality.

Yes, but completely different than typical store and the Highland Village location I don't believe is going anywhere.  To get a better perspective of the type of development, look at the RH Dallas that opened earlier this year:

I think they have only 1 or 2 markets with more than 1 RH store so this would be extreamly rare. Sometimes they do a small RH Modern store but this looks like a full size store.

Not sure what you mean...  How is it completely different than [their] typical store?

The description, including the size, in that permit sounds exactly ike an RH..., especially with the name "RH"  😉

This being a second location is very unlikely.  Way too close to Highland Village. (If they ever do a second location in the Houston metro, it would probably be in The Woodlands).  Maybe they'll convert the current location to an RH Modern

I agree, this most likely means Highland will be closing in my opinion.

Or  . . .   becoming an RH Modern (since the very reliable CREGuy has told us he thinks RH is not leaving Highland Village, it seems conversion to another of RH's concepts might be the most likely scenario.)

FWIW, we had either the first or second of the large gallery stores they have later built in many locations, so it seems reasonable to think we might get one of the earliest locations of the RH Modern stores.

The RH restaurant/ rooftops are really famous around the country. They're in almost every major city (New York, Chicago, Miami, SF, Toronto). There's even these restaurant/rooftops in Dallas, Nashville, Charlotte, and Ohio. So, I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted to expand this concept to Houston. I expected this sooner than later given how busy our RH is. 

 

I can't wait until we find out RH stands for Residence Inn Hotel 😂

 

Updated: Michael Avellone who is the tenant on the TDLR is the Director of Architecture & Design at Restoration Hardware. https://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-avellone-980b2755 

Looks like we're getting the rooftop/restaurant for sure!

Sorry for the double post, but this is really really exciting given how popular these spots are for tourists. A lot of tourists go out of their way just to experience these restaurants/rooftops. I guarantee this will be one of the busiest locations! Some pictures for perspective!

Another interesting piece of information from that permit that seems to double-triple confirm that this is indeed a new RH gallery/restaurant:

The "Tenant Name" given is Michael Avellone.  Who is Michael Avellone, you ask?   

Director, Architecture and Design Galleries at RH.

Ah, RH. I remember years back, they sent me, my mom, my sister, and only one of my brothers (??? But not my others) EACH a massive stack of their catalogs. They were shrinkwrapped and everything- it was literally like 5 or 10 pounds of catalogs for each of us, delivered by UPS. Those suckers were HEFTY.
 

Weird thing was, I was still a teenager living at home, none of my family shopped at RH ever, and as far as I knew, nobody had requested a catalog from them. It is still one of the greatest mysteries of my life. I got a stack of them again the next year, but then, inexplicably, I never received them again. 


Those rooftop restaurants look super cool though.

Berg Hospitality to open two new concepts at Autry Park

The same week that Berg Hospitality Group is opening a new restaurant in the Heights comes word that the prolific restaurateur Benjamin Berg will open two new concepts at Autry Park in Spring 2022.

Houston-based Hanover Company, in partnership with Lionstone Investments, announced Tuesday that Berg restaurants will be part of its 14-acre mixed-use development along the western edge of Buffalo Bayou Park.

The new Berg concepts will be Annabelle’s, an American brasserie serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Turner’s Cut, a luxury steakhouse. The Berg group’s Houston portfolio includes B&B Butchers & Restaurant, B.B. Lemon, The Annie Café & Bar, Turner’s, NoPo Café, and Trattoria Sofia, opening Friday in the Heights
