Proposed retail center going in at 3215 White Oak Dr.

 

3215 White Oak is a unique restaurant/retail pad opportunity in the heart of the historic Houston Heights neighborhood, surrounded by a vibrant mix of critically-acclaimed restaurants and bars, historic Victorian era homes, and eclectic retailers.


Situated where White Oak meets the Heights Hike and Bike Trail, this 0.3 acre pad redevelopment serves as an exciting opportunity to connect with the lively pedestrian scene that this neighborhood is known for.



• Up to 0.3 acre restaurant or retail pad with utilities for
   lease or build-to-suit

• One of the very few lots of its size in the Heights Historic
   District zoned for new development

• Direct access to/from the Heights Hike and Bike Trail,
   a 6.8 mile stretch of well-traveled pedestrian walkways
   connecting the Heights to downtown Houston

Depending on what's opening there, maybe the parking spaces will be adequate?

From Swamplot:


 

A flyer from NewQuest Properties is now hawking an imagined retail-or-restaurant building at 3215 White Oak Dr., across the street from the parking lot for Juiceland and Black Swan Yoga. The lot, which spans from the corner of Columbia St. to the western edge of the Heights hike-and-bike trail that slices diagonally across White Oak, is currently home to an Aqua Hand Car Wash (seen from Columbia St. above), as well as a few rented-out residences behind it and next to the trail.

The included renderings show the building fronting the sidewalk on White Oak, with a patio in front.

From Bisnow Houston:


 

Retail developer Greatland Investments will kick off a redevelopment project in the first quarter on a high-profile site at a popular gateway to the Heights Hike & Bike Trail. The 0.3-acre tract at 3215 White Oak Drive is one of the largest sites zoned for new development in the Heights Historic District South.



Greatland Investments plans to develop 4K SF of Class-A retail with bike racks and on-street and surface parking at the hard corner of White Oak Drive and Columbia Street.  "This is a destination location within the Heights. We want to bring tenants to the neighborhood that will make 3215 White Oak the first choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks," NewQuest's Austen Baldridge said. As a sample of what is to come, the NewQuest team is negotiating with a Houston newcomer for a high-end coffee concept. The 1,200 SF lease could be finalized soon.

the neighborhood should be able to BOO this architect out of existence.  Putting the parking lot exit/entrance AT the trail like that?  total dick move by someone who apparently never bothered to visit the spot.

Crossing White Oak can be tough at times because of the cars parked on the street right on the white lines of the crossing which really limit visibility as you approach - can't imagine that this will help that situation.

Around 2020, Greatland Management was planning to open at food truck park at 3215 White Oak Dr. The food truck park was named White Oak Food Park. I doubt it's happening.

There was a website with scant details but that's no longer available. However, the Facebook page for the food truck park is still up.

I'll never understand this city but I contacted the Planning Dept with an image of the site plan and the response I got was, did you try contacting the developer. Well yeah I don't mind contacting the developer directly but what the hell does the Planning Dept do? I went ahead to state that this is an accident waiting to happen. I received another reply to file a 311 report, which I did. The lady who I spoke with was really nice and told me that issues like this get sent from 311 to the Planning Dept.

Contact the city council member's office, Bike Houston, Houston Heights Ass'n and Buffalo Bayou Partnership if you wan to start a ruckus.  Planning Dep't will approve plans if it meets code and doesn't care whether it is a good idea or a bad idea.

Why tf is the entrance on the trail? Who can we contact about this bs? 

You complain when developments don't connect to trails and then complain when they do as well ....

They aren't just for bikes so I think legally it's no different then connecting to a sidewalk. It looks like there is an alley easement next to the trail so they are not really the same thing. Like the old rail like was separate etc.

Right because cars are going to have such a great view of people coming either direction. This isn't "connected to the trail." Not wanting the curb cut right on the trail doesn't mean I don't want this development. There's a lot of assumptions and twisting of what I said.
