Couldn't find a topic on this, looks like some new mixed-use development is planned for the old Moncrief Lenoir manufacturing building across Lyons from St. Arnold. Cool old building, lots of potential. Can't find much detail on it yet.

It's just for sale. Doesn't mean anything's happening. It's a great building and a no-brainer for some sort of loft renovation but other developments in the area like Warehouse District and the stuff on Navigation are better positioned location-wise. This will not benefit from NHHIP in the short-term, assuming that happens.

I could def see this becoming another renovated warehouse with multiple local businesses as tenants. That seems to be a huge trend right now. I looked up info on the building and it says it was built in 1920 and renovated in 1980. So I'm assuming the bones are still in good shape.

This is across the street from St Arnolds

That's not 2001 Lyons. 2001 Lyons is the lot on the other side of Semmes Street to the West. This is 2103 Lyons. Look at the address above the red door on the brick building, which has had the metal cladding removed.

Where did you see surface parking?

More information from a City Council Economic Development Committee presentation.

This is so exciting! Meow Wolf began in Santa Fe with a donation by George R R Martin (of Game of Thrones fame) and now includes exhibits in Las Vegas and Denver as well. Houston is a perfect expansion spot for them, especially considering Martin has pledged his entire life's work to Texas A&M and spends some time in College Station. I'm going to the Santa Fe location next month and cannot wait to check this out when it opens!

There's a brochure on the website with a decent amount of parking in the back.

We are competing against several other cities to be Location #4.  (With this information about the founder, I like our chances.)  Mentioned cities included Atlanta, Charlotte. The city choice is supposed to be announced within 20 days, IIRC.

Very exciting, really hope they choose Houston. Was just at the Sante Fe Meow Wolff last month and it was a lot of fun! Think it would be a great addition here for both locals and tourists.

MW has been considering Houston as an expansion since 2017. At that time they also considered Austin, LA, Denver, and LV. Two of those are now open. Houston is probably a lock. 

For example, see:

And to an extent Austin has already (albeit temporarily) happened with their SXSW exhibit.

Per the Dallas Morning News  (yes, the Dallas Morning News, not our pathetic local paper), Meow Wolf will open in Houston in 2024.  Also planning to open one in Grapevine, Texas (Grapevine Mills shopping mall to be exact) in 2023.

Love the fact that Houston's will be in the Fifth Ward, while "Dallas's" will be in suburban Grapevine, in a shopping mall . . .

That's just Dallas culture vs. Houston culture...

I honestly didn't know Saint Arnold's was considered to be in the 5th Ward after all of these years of going there. When I read that I assumed it would be at East River or somewhere along Clinton over there. This area in general sure is blossoming.

Pathetic is being too nice but I'm loving this development and thank you Dallas Morning news.

I experienced Meow Wolf's Santa Fe location in late 2019, and the Las Vegas location summer of last year.  Very cool, and noticeably steps-up from our own Seismique (though I enjoyed Seismique as well).  My husband and I got as far as "overthrowing" the front-of-house at Omega Mart, before heading out to see other attractions, but probably had a few hours of effort ahead of us to get to the bottom of the whole thing.

Wow, that a huge price tag! The Grapevine location is only $2,000,000. Is it because the warehouse needs a lot more work compared to their mall, or because this is a stand alone building?

Grapevine probably only needs interior fit out. The Lyons site is pretty rough on the outside and can only imagine what it looks like inside. They will have to do electrical, plumbing, interior walls, sheet rock, maybe floors and add AC. Plus they have to build a parking lot.
