3-Story Building PERFECT for a Commercial use: ie: Office Space, Galleries, Restaurants, Bistros, Shops or a Manufacturing or Industrial use; or as large (3,000
- 5,000 s.f) OR residential lofts of the first quality.
- The 10,000 S.F. Soundstage has potential as a Nightclub, Manufacturing Facility, High-Technology Lab, Storage, Gallary Space or Performance Venue and will now only be available for use by the
Landlord and tenants of the building.
- The Building is served by two 2,500 amp disconnects (277/480 3-phase). Building is fully sprinklered. New elevators and stairwells will need to be installed.
- The multi-story building contains three floors of 25,000 s.f. each and a basement of 15,000 s.f. The multi-story building will need a complete renovation prior to occupancy. This will take
a year after the project becomes bankable through pre-leasing. The soundstage was built in 1987 and can be used without any renovation.
- Secure Parking for 170 cars is available on adjacent lots (see: "Sketches"). The building is 2-blocks from the UH-Downtown light-rail station. The
neighborhood has superior ingress/egress to I-10 and the freeway system. It is the only place in the CBD where you can get off the freeway coming from both directions and get on the freeway going in both directions. Convenient access to the office buildings along the 'tunnel system' can be provided by an
on-call van operated by the building management.
- The west side of the building faces (and is quite visible from) eastbound traffic on I-10 (See:"Our Location"). It would be ideal for wall signage for
the major tenant of the building. "Naming Rights" also goes to the tenant taking 51% or more of the lease space. Furthermore, take special care in noting that from now on, only the
Landord or Tenants of the building will be allowed use of the soundstage. It is no longer available to the general public.
- Property owners will consider joint-ventures (See DISCLAIMER under "Information") to develop the property on a spec
basis. As it stands, the building qualifies for the 20% Federal Tax Credit for historic buildings although it has not been applied for at this time. Interested parties should take a look
at the "Tax Incentives" tab to see what is available.
- Property owners will consider demolishing the existing building and doing a 'Build to Suit' if circumstances warrant.
They will also consider doing a long-term (50-100 year) ground lease. It is conceivable that the entire block (+-115,000 s.f.) can be put together as a unit (See: "SKETCHES": "HCAD Sketch of Blocks 62 and 13, NSBB")
- See the "Information" tab for more details.
- Dial "707 Walnut St, Houston, Texas 77002" into Google Maps or Google Earth to look at the property, the surrounding neighborhood and the proximity to the CBD high-rise
