402 E 20th St


Recommended Posts

402 E 20th St is a 0.26 acre lot that includes a 5,733 SF structure built in 1950.

Heights Upholstery is located here. According to Loopnet, this location has served as an upholstery & fabrication facility for over 35 years.

The owner listed the property for sale a while ago. Recently, the listing shows it's under ccontract.

County records recently filed a warranty deed with the current owner transferring the property to an entity connected to Gary Mosley.

Mosley is the proprietor of Creek Group. The hospitality group operates several Austin-themed bar & grill concepts primarily in the Greater Heights area. A few of those include Onion Creek, Cactus Cove, and Canyon Creek.

I don't know what Mosley has in mind for the property. It is a possibility he could renovate the building for a new restaurant, bar, or something else entirely.

Gary Mosley, who owns four restaurant-and-bar concepts in the Heights area, said he recently purchased the commercial property at 402 E. 20th St.

But the Heights resident said he does not plan to transform the location into another outpost operated by the Creek Group, which includes Onion Creek in the Heights, Cedar Creek in Shady Acres, Cactus Cove in Timbergrove and Canyon Creek in the Washington Avenue and Memorial Park area.

Mosley said he bought the 70-year-old property, which is located in a historic district designated by the City of Houston, in order to preserve it and possibly rent it out to another business.

 

"I’m not going to open up a Creek there," Mosley said. "There's just so much stuff going on, with people knocking down these historic buildings. The history that the Heights has, I’m just trying to do my part in preserving it."

The 11,220-square foot property at 402 E. 20th St. has been home to Heights Upholstery, an auto upholster, and is valued at $830,400 by the Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD). The one-story building measuring 2,784 square feet was constructed in 1950 as an auto service garage, according to HCAD.

The property had been owned since 1988 by Carmen Martinez. Mosley said she sold it because she wants to retire and move out of the city.

Good for him.

There are few enough grandfathered zero-setback buildings that every one is worth saving, and this is pretty much the only way to do it.
