Houston Downtown Finally Getting A Massive Upgrade

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.

I'm Allen ... nice to meet you. I was born and raised here in the Houston Heights. I went to school here from Elementary to High School and off to U of H. I love to blog, although i'm not that great at it. It's much harder then I thought. I like to play chess, meditate, read and enjoy fishing too (one time I caught a big shark!). My grandpa bought his house on 26th street for $55K in 1965 on a double lot, can you believe that?! Things sure have changed here for the better. I like to inspire folks with positive messages, and I hope to change the world. I volunteer at Divina Providence church too helping abused children. Someone helped me (Mr. Leonard Davis) years ago, so i'm paying the universe back. I was a kid with little direction, and left home at 14 years old. I never had a father, or father figure, in fact I never even seen a picture of my father. I was raised by my mother, who happens to be lesbian. She did her absolute best, but with food stamps & section 8, she can only do so much. Surrounded with turmoil & drugs all around me, somehow I might it thru. I think seeing how drugs can affect a person with my own two eyes, really scared me as a child. So it's fair to say i've had my fair share of problems. I don't share these issues to make you sad, I hope that it reaches a child out there to inspire him or her. That you can make something of yourself, even when you are given the worst situations. I also hope to inspire you, with wishes that you will take one minute just to take notice of that child / teenager and really try to talk with him. Not preach to him, but to talk to him. Conversate and ask him, why are you doing the things you are doing... then add some insight about how a different life if possible. These are my wishes and hopes... let's change the world together! Luckily by the grace of God, Mr. Davis helped me. He was a pasture at a church, & took notice of me. It is super strange how one single person, can change the universe. Thank God
