I drive past here everyday for work. The main brick entrance by the tracks is gorgeous. Pretty sure it’s in the Art Deco Houston book.

 

I’m not sure what they’re going to turn it into, but a big industrial roller disco lounge is what I’m crossing my fingers for. I thought the fenced off lots to the southeast would be more town house farms but it will be permanent parking for this property.

 

if it will be a bar, it could be the nail in the coffin for D&W. Which would be a crime.

With D&W, Harrisburg Country Club, and Voodoo Queen in the area, I think the dive bars will stand out for some people as better options than the newer spots.

Windows look great. I have even been seeing some development inside of the building. Once I even saw a few exotic cars in there maybe the developers? Either way looks to be another great addition excited to see this come to fruition.

Probably just people taking pics of their cars. I drive past that superfund site off Jensen with the incredible view of DT and there are often folks taking car pics there. East End is full of spots for car pics, so, I wouldn't be shocked if someone is using this site for it too.

I wish Kaldis would really invest in their landscaping... I worked with them before and it didn't seem like a priority...

Milby is a pot hole war zone and the tracks & crossing are missing from this glittering rendering. Although it would be nice if Milby were to become a wild flower haven and well manicured street. Would make the walks to Voodoo Queen more attractive.

 

Some of the windows on warehouse portion facing the tracks have missing windows. I think I might peep inside and see what the work looks like internally. It's a very interesting space but I can't imagine what would go here? Some kind of upscale furniture store with a show room and warehouse? Indoor farmers market? Tout Suite and other random businesses getting displaced by the 45/59 realignment? A beer hall/bar/restaurant would be super sweet. It's just hard to picture.

I have a feeling it'll be another co-working space. So many in the area with these large buildings in random locations.

After visiting Fabrica la Aurora in San Miguel de Allende, I was thinking this would be a really cool spot for artist studios and a high end gallery. However, based on the description on their website, it will be yet another co-working space:

Our Latest Project: reviving the original Cameron Iron Works building in EaDo. This 60,000-square-foot art deco-style building at 711 N. Milby will be home to local creatives and professionals. Ironworks plans to make is debut in the of Fall 2019.

I dislike At&t, had to beg them to put regular internet in my house 3 block away. Anyways, excited for a new eatery close by.

 

Anyone know what's up with the viking fenced lots to the south and across Walker? I would wager Townhouses. Also does anyone know if the Fallout Trailer next to D&W is apart of D&Ws?

I had to find out which properties had ATT fiber in my neighborhood, and basically do all the research to schedule a technician to come out and run fiber to my property. 

 

How did you find all the properties?

If you search for ATT fiber you can check to see if the fiber is run to your property or not. If it isn't, what I did was check local business addresses. I found one across the street from where I live, so I placed a ticket and in the ticket I told them the business across from me already had fiber.

Friend was asking my about any new coworking spaces in the East End, so we stopped by this weekend. 

 

The back building (northern most one) is still pretty much untouched. 

 

Held my phone up to the windows to take these two  shots of the interior:

I would hope that they are planning to do something with the floor. Old parking lines not a great look. Looking like it could be a really cool space!

Spoke to Kaldis there will be a boardwalk in the middle of the container spaces which will be leased individually. RR's have graffiti tiles and he has already leased out a few spots to high end clients. Overall great looking building...

Do you know if they're meant to be office/co-working spaces or small-scale retail popups (akin to Boxpark in London) or something else entirely?

That's incredible news. Boxpark is awesome and if this turns into something remotely similar it'll be a great draw for the neighborhood.

Yes the building itself has such great character. I am excited to see the small retail spaces interacting with the larger work spaces in a urban warehouse environment. Not to mention its just a short bike ride away from my house.

I really hope there is some future restaurant option coming in, but it seems unlikely, given the current climate. Also, long term, closing/cutting off the McKinney RR crossing would limit customers.

The neighborhood is doing well given the slump in oil and overall economy. That lot next to Baytown Seafood is being cleared and will surely sprout the newest townhouse farm at any time. A realtor opening up in a renovated warehouse is cool and very appropriate.

While a restaurant would be really nice here. I'm hoping for something tech related to create some job for the area. Even a co-working space could work.

Two pieces of land being replat as "unrestricted reserve" right next to this location. Owned by Tilly Investments. Called "Milby Development" and "Walker Development", respective to their location. The Kaldis area is in black, new development plans are highlighted in yellow:

Such a great location but I could see this eventually turning into townhomes. Can't find anything on the web for commercial development.

3810 Walker is a cool old house I always hoped would be restored to its former glory; the adjacent lot and the one across the street are both empty and usually overgrown, so the prospect of any kind of construction on those is exciting.

I drive by this house everyday for work and have always thought the same thing. I'm curious if we could work with a group to move it elsewhere in the neighborhood. I've seen Bullethoof do amazing work, and those at the Plant House have to be familiar with the process. Anyone know them? I'm down to get a little vocal about it.

This house is much older than the HCAD - 1930's built info. says..(nothing new). I'm guessing it is at least from the early 1900's, if not older. The property directly behind the pictured house (all the way to Polk) is listed as the "Brady Estate" (Map, year 1908). Wondering if this house has a link to J.T. Brady.

Nothing new indeed. HCAD lists our house as built in 1939, but I was chatting with a local realtor who knew the former owners of the house who had done some research into its history and it seems more likely it was built around 1918.

The built dates in HCAD are wrong for most of the older properties. I think was an artifact of the digital conversion project. For tax purposes, that date is not too relevant, and digging through 100 years of records wouldn't make sense in terms of cost. They may have used dates from the block books, but that's just a guess.
