Houston Downtown Finally Getting A Massive Upgrade

In Houston Texas, Downtown is the largest business district in Houston and it always surprises its citizens with never stopping developments. Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) has plans to convert the 57-year-old Barbara Jordan Post Office into a Massive Shopping Centre Office building with a rooftop farm. This project has plans to give facilities for everything like International dining, shopping, hanging out, office space, retail chains, and a rooftop park.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the post office was outlined by Wilson Morris Crain & Anderson in 1962 and was in use as a post office till 2014 and shifted later with North Houston facility. Lovett Commercials has now planned to transform the Post office which is covering 550,000 square-foot areas into the favorite destination for shopping and dining in Downtown Houston. They bought this property in 2015 and were used only for hosting night festivals. In this project of a grand shopping center, they have plans to keep the structure as it is and convert the site into a ‘one-of-a-kind urban ecosystem’ titled as POST Houston.

The post office campus was having a two-story warehouse, five-story admin building, and the surface facing parking which surrounds the complex. As per the POST Houston developing plan, the warehouse will be modified to create skylights, atriums, and passages to enter the building. The atriums will be covered with ETFE roofing material and will bring light into the depth of the building. The rooftop will feature a 360-degree view of the city’s downtown and will have many dining and party venues. It will also have a rooftop farm which will allow you to enjoy the rooftop-to-table experience. As per Kirby Liu, Lovett’s director of development, the second floor will be reserved for only office space. According to the plan, POST Houston will have space for office space, for retail, market hall, and co-working space. This project started in September 2018 and expected to complete by summer 2020.

Hi, i'm Travis Miller. I enjoy cycling and finding new trails in the innerloop area of Houston. I am also a licensed commercial pilot, and have been doing it for about a decade now. I love to try out new dishes, and then making a couple of videos about the venue. I love to blog, on the Heights & Montrose pages we have on Facebook, I cannot believe we have nearly 50,000 Heights & Montrose Fans combined. Heights Page: https://www.facebook.com/TheHoustonHeights/ Montrose Page: https://facebook.com/houstonmontrose I am a born again Christian, and truly believe in treating folks fairly and equally. I consider myself a very hard worker & dedicated to my clients. I am extremely punctual and very detailed full time realtor. I live here in the Houston Heights, which makes it very convenient for my innerloop clients, I can show a home within 5-10 minutes usually. This is so important, because buyers see a home for sale sign, and want to see the home quick. This saves my clients a great deal of money and head aches. Well guys off to sell these homes & fly these planes ... Lets grab a coffee on me =) Yours Truly, Neighborhood Real Estate Master - Travis Miller - 832-919-5635
