Hi! Noticed that 3509 Harrisburg has been vacant for some time. Any news on tenants taking up residence? It seems like a lot of developments in the area are starting up and then subsequently falling through over here.

Are you referring to the small white office building on the northeast corner of York and Harrisburg? If so, I agree, it is super disappointing that it hasn’t been leased out yet, they did a good job on the renovations and it seems to be a very appealing building.

 

My only guess is that it’s because there is an abundance of people loitering in the area due to both the light rail stop and the New Hope Housing facility a block or so away. I use that light rail station frequently and drive through the area regularly as well, and regardless of the time of day or night there are people just aimlessly standing around, sitting under door awnings, etc. 

 

It definitely discourages pedestrian traffic, and I’m afraid that it’s at least been a factor in some developers second guessing projects in the immediate area (such as the proposed project to redo the Rey building at Milby into a retail development). Hopefully the Kaldis redo of the Cameron Iron Works building, inevitable reworking of the coffee plant, and the residential developments that will follow help the area turn the corner, because it has a lot of potential.

I saw a Securities and Exchange Commission ( SEC ) form for a restaurant / bar with the address 3501 Harrisburg Blvd. This is the building in the Second Ward (East End), Houston. 

The name of the restaurant / bar is Night Shift. It's from Logan Beck of Rootlab and coffee shop Giant Leap Coffee in the East End.

Why would a restaurant/bar need an SEC form?

Probably because they're going to raise capital from the public through crowdfunding efforts.

They really need to claw back some sidewalk from the street parking. That's my one real issue with the green line- it seriously messed up the sidewalks on Harrisburg.

Unfortunately, that ship has sailed. They just redid the vast majority of the sidewalks in this part of the East End, starting in 2013, by adding new ramps and insets with the East End Management District logo and street name. I doubt they will look at reconfiguring them any time soon.

More on the vision for 3501 Harrisburg Blvd in a recent article on Papercity Magazine's site. This article is about Steve and Hilary Ybarra, their work on 2132 Bissonnet and other projects coming soon:

 

2132 Bissonnet is not a one-off development in the neighborhood the Ybarras live in. This architect couple (Steve and Hilary met while both were studying at Yale University’s graduate school of architecture) already has bought lots in the East End (at 3501 Harrisburg Boulevard, right across from a light rail stop) and at 615 West Gray in Montrose. They plan to do mixed-use developments similar in scope to 2132 Bissonnet on both sites.
 

Part of their vision revolves around the idea of showing what can be done with mixed-use developments built on a more modest scale (two to three stories).

“We also talked about a new psychology for Houston,” Hilary says. “These mixed-use projects replacing the generic strip mall with a something a little more dense and a little more interesting.”

“Houston has a lot of big developments,” Steve says. “You have River Oaks District. You have The Post Oak. Very large scale things. We’d certainly love to do something on that scale in the future, but for now we like focusing on smaller sites that — while not as large — have the potential to be the type of buildings that people will interact with more on a daily basis.”

There was this blurb in Houston Chronicle back in April about Night Shift at 3501 Harrisburg Blvd (the name was not reported). The article featured the Ybarras and their mixed-use in Boulevard Oaks at 2132 Bissonnet:


They are renovating a 7,200-square-foot brick building built in the 1940s at the corner of Harrisburg Boulevard and York Street in the East End. The property, just down from the former Maxwell House plant and in front of a rail stop along Metro's Green Line, is slated become a bar and events space.

Night Shift, the bar & restaurant going in the redevelopment building at 3501 Harrisburg Blvd (Houston) may not go the online crowdsource route, but is looking for investors. Maybe that's the reason for the SEC form. I don't know.

This was published last month after Night Shift's SEC filing:



Night Shift I, Ltd., Limited Partnership just released form D for $450,000 equity financing. This is a new filing. Night Shift I, Ltd. is expected to fundraise $450,000 in this fundraising offer. The total private offering amount was $450,000. The private financing document was filed on 2019-06-03. The reason for the financing was: unspecified. The fundraising still has about $450,000 more and is not closed yet.

What is Form D? What It Is Used For

Form D disclosures could be used to track and understand better your competitors. The information in Form D is usually highly confidential for ventures and startups and they don’t like revealing it. This is because it reveals amount raised or planned to be raised as well as reasons for the financing. This could help competitors. Entrepreneurs usually want to keep their financing a ‘secret’ so they can stay in stealth mode for longer.

So, official news about what's going in the redeveloped 3501 Harrisburg Blvd building. Some things posted above are right, others not quite but almost.

It's not a restaurant, but a bar and lounge. As posted above, the name is Night Shift.

https://www.instagram.com/nightshift_htx

 



This isn't a Giant Leap Coffee ( Logan Beck ) bar spin-off. Giant Coffee Isn't involved. But from the SEC filing & documents, Logan Beck is attached to this as an investor, maybe? 

Night Shift is a new bar from Justin Ware and  Patrick Abalos (bartenders at Johnny's Gold Brick).

It's opening in 2020.



From Instagram this week:

It’s officially out there! Night Shift is a thing and will be in the works! We launched the brand at Tales of the Cocktail at @bartonique with limited run of hats Koozie and shirts. 

https://www.instagram.com/p/B0GpT4RAnvw/



Abalos talked about opening the bar in a May on a local podcast The Open Bar Experience.

And from Eater Houston this afternoon:

While at New Orleans industry conference Tales of the Cocktail, Johnny’s Gold Brick bartender Justin Ware and Patrick Abalos of NTS Ventures (Not Too Sweet Ventures) have announced that they’ve got a new bar in the works for the East End. Called Night Shift, more details on the bar are set to come next week

Logan Beck posted photos of Night Shift to Instagram a couple of days ago. The photo was of the building at 3501 Harrisburg on the corner of York St, although the address wasn't posted. He also captioned the photo that he's also part of the bar:

Really really excited to finally be able to share this... It’s official— we’re opening a bar!



Night Shift shared the same photo yesterday with tags of the building and everyone involved with the bar. There wasn't an address.

The caption on the photo:

As of this week it’s official— we have a space leased and now the fun work begins!

From the tagged photo on Night Shift's Instagram, the events space may be an East End location of Ronin Art House. The event space is tagged in the photo. 

When developers Hilary and Steve Ybarra, principals of The Platform Investment Group spoke with Houston Chronicle in April. they shared 3501 Harrisburg Blvd would be a bar and events space.

Roots Lab is also tagged.

More clarification on Night Shift. This is the cocktail bar ( and maybe events space too) opening next year at 3501 Harrisburg Blvd, Second Ward, Houston.

Updated bio from Night Shift's Instagram that includes Root Lab's involvement:


A neighborhood cocktail bar opening Spring 2020 in East End HTX by Justin Ware and  Patrick Abalos in collaboration with Root Lab.

The Platform Investment Group announced leasing news for 3501 Harrisburg Blvd in Houston. The announcement was posted to their website July 31 and includes more details:

Leases for 3501 Harrisburg were signed by special events space, Ronin Art House, and a new bar concept, Night Shift. This will be the fifth location in Houston for Ronin, and their largest to date at 4,320 sf. Night Shift will take the remaining 2,880 sf and will be led by Houston bartenders Justin Ware and Patrick Abalos with design and construction by Rootlab.
