Great find, @Mab!

Reupping non-hotlinked images because Lovett is known for removing renderings from their website. Plus these are higher res:

More details about 1818 Washington Avenue, Lovett Commerical's East Washington development.

 

From Houston Chronicle:


 

A second phase of the expansion will include a new two-story building at 1818 Washington Street. The 50,000-square-foot property will have a courtyard and rooftop terraces overlooking the downtown skyline.
 

The building's first tenant will be a New American seafood concept from an Atlanta-based celebrity chef. The building is expected to open by fall 2020.

From Eater Houston on one of the tenants for 1818 Washington Ave.


The Houston Chronicle hinted at Fry‚Äôs plans for a restaurant housed in a new development at 1818 Washington Avenue, describing the building‚Äôs first tenant as an ‚ÄúAtlanta-based celebrity chef‚ÄĚ and the restaurant as a ‚ÄúNew American seafood concept,‚ÄĚ but didn‚Äôt name him. What really connects Fry to this project is a limited liability corporation formed in 2017 by Ford Fry Restaurants partner and chief financial officer Daniel Van Loh called ‚ÄúWashington Avenue Fish Camp,‚ÄĚ though it‚Äôs unclear what exactly the restaurant would be named just yet.

Van Loh was also responsible for registering the limited liability corporations formed to open Superica and La Lucha, Fry‚Äôs new-to-Houston restaurants that are set to open in the Heights in mid-September. If the ‚ÄúFish Camp‚ÄĚ project comes to fruition, Fry would then own four restaurants in Houston ‚ÄĒ Superica, La Lucha, State of Grace, and this as-yet-unnamed eatery. It‚Äôs possible that it could be an outpost of The Optimist, Fry‚Äôs Downtown Atlanta seafood restaurant that promises a ‚Äúseaside fish camp experience‚ÄĚ and dishes like whole-roasted trout, raw oysters, and lobster rolls.

More on 1818 Washington Ave, part of the Sawyer Yards expansion.



From PaperCity:



There will be other tenants, depending on how it shakes out so far as square footage. Likely another couple of large restaurants and quite a bit of unique urban entertainment concepts,‚ÄĚ Lovett Commercial‚Äôs Erin Dyer tells PaperCity.
 

¬†‚ÄúA tenant we‚Äôre working with is an axe-throwing concept. It‚Äôs a fun experience we‚Äôre bringing to the campus. We‚Äôre able to do that because we have large buildings we‚Äôre able to repurpose. It‚Äôs hard to find that amount of space in urban Houston.‚ÄĚ
 

‚ÄúThese old buildings ‚ÄĒ you can‚Äôt really create them. It‚Äôs an experience in addition to going to a salon or fitness. It‚Äôs an experience that you really can‚Äôt recreate or mirror simply because of the unique feel to the area,‚ÄĚ Clay Mealy of Lovett Commercial adds.

Are you sure this is relative to 1818 Washington and not the "two building expansion" of Sawyer Yards over the next 2 years?  There is no building being repurposed at 1818. It's all new construction.

I am 100% confident the axe-throwing business will be located in the renovated buildings that will hold the cidery and brewery... off Oliver

 


Okay. The placement of the sentence gave the impression it was about 1818 Washington Avenue because the author wrote in the paragraphs about 1818 Washington Avenue after writing on 1201 Oliver St. The author didn't give context the following sentence was about 1201 Oliver St.

Now includes plans for future structured parking or parking garage. Maybe this is when it outgrows the surface parking lot? I would like for structured parking to be built with the new development.

Chef Paul Qui of Aqui is opening a smaller Filipino restaurant somewhere in the Sawyer Yards development in Houston. It could be the Sawyer Yards development with the silos or the expansion at 1818 Washington Ave.
 



From Alison Cook on Twitter:

Good news: Paul Qui & Jill Bartolome will be opening their new Filipino spot in Sawyer Yards in the new year.

...
they've secured a space and are working on a menu. Much smaller & more focused than Aqui. Eager to see what they come up with.

There is permitting for work on a parking lot for the connecting phase of Sawyer Yards at 1818 Washington Ave, Houston.

The permit is for 1802 1/2 Center St.

 

It is a flipping shame a parking garage wasn't their first choice. A parking structure is in the future, based on the last public renderings. Why not now instead of later when the phase is completed and operational?

Eater Houston called it. Chef Ford Fry's restaurant for 1818 Washington Ave in Houston will be The Optimist.
 

It's going in the 7,240 SF space on the corner of Washington Ave and Silver St, directly across the street from Tacodeli.
 

1818 Washington Ave or East Washington is a new development under construction from Lovett Commercial. It's part of Sawyer Yards.

From Eater Houston yesterday:

Construction permits filed for the space at 1818 Washington¬† Avenue indicate that Fry will bring the Optimist, his ‚Äúseaside fish camp‚ÄĚ restaurant to the address. A sales tax permit filed with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts also confirms that location. The Houston outpost is an offshoot of the original Optimist in Atlanta, which Fry opened in 2012 to rave reviews, including a ‚Äúbest new restaurant‚ÄĚ nod from Esquire that same year.

An updated site plan was uploaded very recently to Lovett Commercial's website and included in an updated brochure.


https://www.lovettcommercial.com/properties/houston/1818-washington-ave- (archive link)

Brochure:
https://www.lovettcommercial.com/Pdf.aspx?id=332  (archive link)





The updated site plan has two new retail tenants:
 

  • Punch Bowl Social¬† - a fancy bowling alley and restaurant (similar to Pinstripes and Bowl & Barrel)
     
  • Sola Salon Studio



Although we've known about the Optimist ( the seafood restaurant from chef Ford Fry), the site plan confirms the forum's previous speculations of the restaurant's location at 1818 Washington. The restaurant will be located in the 7,420 SF space on the corner of Washington Ave and Silver St.

Punch Bowl Social will be two stories and fronting Center St. The first floor is 5,000 SF. The second floor is 15, 000 SF and will be the location of the bowling lanes.

Sola Salon Studio will be on the second floor in a 6,190 SF space.





Two years ago, Houstonia reported Punch Bowl Social was rumored for a Houston expansion:


Punch Bowl Social, a food-and-cocktail-forward entertainment emporium from Denver, is rumored to be planning a Houston outpost‚ÄĒthat is once a location is locked down. The retro spot serves as an adult playground complete with games of all kinds (think vintage arcade games, a bowling alley, ping pong, shuffleboard and more merriment). In addition to craft beverages and punch bowl creations, there‚Äôs a Southern-inspired dining menu designed by Top Chef judge and James Beard Foundation award-winning chef Hugh Acheson.

Some news about the rooftop bar that's part of 1818 Washington, Lovett Commercial's new retail development at 1818 Washington Ave (Houston):

 

The 3,000 SF space on the roof will be home to McQueen's (or the name could be McQueen). This will be a rooftop cocktail bar.

 

There's an Instagram account for McQueen's, which launched a few weeks ago.
