New Designs Released For New Development That Will Be Built On Site Of Old Meteor Lounge
HOUSTON Oct 13 — Updated designs have been released showing the plans for Fairview St. and Taft St. that will include Max’s Wine Dive and Cuchara. The new development will include mixed-use retail/office development that is currently available for pre-lease in the heart of Montrose, offering boutique office, restaurant and retail space, as well as a five-story parking garage. Construction is slated to begin January 2017.
According to CBRE the project will be branded the ‘Fairview District,’ due to being situated as a strategic entryway to Montrose from Midtown,– will be comprised of four buildings.
“Office tenants today are looking for an experience. They want to be inspired in their work space and also have direct access to progressive retail and dining concepts,” CBRE’s Rima Soroka said
Featuring a highly creative design concept, which includes industrial elements such as glass, brick and steel, as well as exposed 10-foot ceilings, Fairview District will be an attractive development for office tenants who thrive in collaborative work environments, Soroka said.
“Montrose has served as the cultural hub of Houston for decades,” EDGE Realty’s Lacee Jacobs said. “Fairview District will offer a unified retail and restaurant destination with new, unique concepts that reflect the neighborhood and the city’s eclectic and diverse personality.”
“Fairview District will offer a rare urban experience in Houston: a cultural hub where young professionals and consumers mingle day and night, at work and play,” Fred Sharifi, with SFT Investments, said. “We are excited to work with industry leading partners, such as Gensler, to emphasize the pedestrian character of the neighborhood.”
