Update on the property of 5815 Gulf Fwy in the Idylwood neighborhood. This is part of the Lawndale / Wayside area of Houston, near or part of the Greater East End area.



From Virtual Builder's Exchange, taken from minutes from the Houston Planning Commission meeting this week:



 

The Houston Planning Commission on Aug. 22 granted a variance to a planned mixed-use project located southwest of downtown.
 

The project at 5815 Gulf Freeway, west of South Wayside Drive, is called Hass Center in documents on file with the city. But it carries the moniker South Gulf Plaza in a conceptual rendering.
 

The project would involve construction of a two-story, 24,797-square-foot retail/office building and a one-story, 16,048-square-foot retail building.
 

According to a plat map on file with the city, the smaller retail building would include 6,000 square feet of restaurant space.
 

Plans call for more than 239 total surface parking spaces and landscaped medians in between the two buildings.
 

Houston-based MattressFirmhad been operating its corporate headquarters and a retail supercenter in a 54,615-square-foot building that would have to be razed from the property.
 

A variance request dated Aug. 1, 2019, describes Houston company Doan and Associates LLC as “the developer of the subject site.” Doan and Associates, which provided the aforementioned conceptual rendering, has handled designing, planning and consulting on a range of commercial and residential developments.
 

Houston company Century Engineering is providing engineering services for the project.
 

It was in 2016 that Sugar Land-based Hass Holdings LLC acquired the property, which is currently valued at $4 million, according to Harris County Appraisal District records.

Hass Holdings directed by Amir Hassan, who is connected to a handful of trucking and logistics businesses.
 

The variance request was to ensure that three neighboring residential roads – Dwinnell, Harriet and Dorbrant streets – do not extend past the western boundary of the project site property.
 

City codes does typically permit the consideration of extending any public street that presently stops at a plat boundary without a cul-de-sac.
 

In a memo to the Planning Commission, city planning staff said, “The property owner intends plat all of the property he owns, to create an unrestricted reserve, the property will be developed as commercial, therefore allowing these streets to be extended east and/or end in a cul-de-sac would create an undue hardship by depriving the applicant of the reasonable use of the land.”
 

City staff supported granting the variance, explaining in the memo that strict application of the code allowing extension of such streets would “make this project infeasible due to the existence of unusual physical characteristics that affect the property in question, or would create an impractical development or one otherwise contrary to sound public policy.”
 

City staff also agreed that the streets surrounding the property – South Wayside, Sunnyland and Eskeridge streets – can adequately serve the projected traffic flow that will be produced by the new development.

this area is brutal.  basically all concrete and car exhaust, no shade whatsoever.   everytime I have to run to that walmart i feel like i'm in the most inhumane part of late capitalism.   really surprised someone would spend the money on this to re-develop, and not, say, the dinner bell cafeteria.

Not sure why everyone is so critical of this area.... Quite a lot of UofH students come to this area for knick knacks and I'm sure are driving the local economy here. I can see this development being really successful, especially if they have a coffee shop here. Coral Sword is usually packed full of UofH students right now so any relief in another coffee shop would be welcome for sure.

I would hope that folks take to the streets with pitchforks and torches when and if the idea of redeveloping the Dinner Bell ever gains any traction.

I spoke to a demolition contractor who has been engaged to do a “big mattress firm on gulf freeway”. I’m assuming this is it, so we should be seeing this building razed any day now.
