More on the Houston location of Bishop Cidercade at 2339 Commerce in Second Ward: 




From Houston Business Journal:

 

...The Houston location will be the concept's new flagship.
 

Co-owner Joel Malone wants to see what kind of cider Houstonians are craving. To do that kind of research and development, he says, having a brick-and-mortar location in the market helps. 

...The cidercade will seat 250 and will span 20,000 square feet, including a patio.

I remember the first day Bishop Cider opened in a little hole in the wall in the bishop arts district, I walked right up to Joel and asked him where his apples came from/what varietals they used, and he mumbled something about the northeast then said Michigan and maybe New York.  If you care about craft or actual cider, they're total and complete garbage.   

 

i'm hopeful the houston cider company thats being built near sawyer yards is truthful about their owners attachment to a specific orchard and that they focus on actual varietals/heirlooms, and not just making flavored apple juice.

There is some activity and new equipment at the site, including a paver. Looks like they might finally pave the parking lot—curbs were already done, trees have been planted in the medians between rows, and the lot has been leveled for some time.

Oh man, I forgot that the original look was going to be colorful. Oh well. I do like the wood-paneled side.



I like the wood-paneled sided building too, but sort of  wish Ancorian would have kept the colorful design. That alone would have made it an instant spot to take photos for the 'gram.

Last week, another tenant was announced for The Block, Ancorian's new Second Ward development at 2339 Commerce St:

The announcement provided insight on the coworking  office reported over the last two years.

Ancorian signed  Common Desk, a coworking office from Dallas.


I think the address Houston Chronicle reported from the press release is wrong. Instead of 2339 Commerce,  the Chronicle lists 2339 Canal St.




From Houston Chronicle last week:



 

Coworking company Common Desk opened its first location in 2012 in Deep Ellum, a neighborhood just east of downtown Dallas known for its arts and entertainment venues.

The company saw similar characteristics in Houston’s EaDo, where it's planning its newest outpost.
 

Dallas-based Common Desk will occupy 25,000-square-feet in a warehouse redevelopment project at 2339 Canal St. called The Block.
 

“EaDo reminds us of Deep Ellum,” Nick Clark, CEO of Common Desk, said in an announcement. “It has the cultural authenticity and significance that we as a brand love to build a foundation from, offering the diverse variety of concepts and convenience you want from a submarket, without the congestion and parking difficulties you might find in a central business district.”

The new EaDo coworking space will have shared desks, eight conference rooms, private offices and suites for larger teams. Amenities will include a fitness concept, an outdoor patio, coffee shop, wet bar and shared kitchen. It will open next summer, the company said.

"Common Desk" signage is up. Looks like they are currently setting up inside the south side of the building.

 

No word on Bishop Cidercade. The Austin location just opened, which means it should free up their development team to target Houston. It's still listed on their website as "Coming Soon" with no additional updates.

I’m very concerned that this will ultimately be canceled. I don’t know that any type of arcade is a viable business in this post-COVID world. The amount of staff needed for sanitization efforts alone would be problematic. 
 

Have Dave & Busters or Main Event reopened?

Cidercade opened in Austin mid-pandemic and are apparently doing okay.
