Houston’s east downtown area is fast becoming a destination for those who appreciate the perks of living close to the heart of the city and all that it offers. The new Promenade Place warehouse style lofts in east downtown, or EaDo, give residents the opportunity to live in a beautifully restored historic building made complete with modern luxury amenities.

Nightlife, easy access to freeways and a blossoming community make EaDo a destination for living well.

Rather than tear down the existing warehouse to make space for a new development, Promenade Place LLC developed and converted the property.

Rather than tear down the existing warehouse to make space for a new development, Promenade Place LLC developed and converted the property to condominiums, paying homage to Houston’s past when redeveloping the 1920s warehouse that is now home to Promenade Place.

The four-story building still recalls the warehouse feel with ruddy brick walls and large windows that add a nostalgic feel to the exterior. The decision was made to maintain the loft-like space, so instead of chopping up the building to create many living spaces, the design team kept the building to just 29 homes. That decision translates to open floor plans, soaring ceilings and multi-story units giving homeowners spacious balconies and sweeping views of downtown Houston.

The interior seamlessly blends old and new. Units include exposed brick that is original to the building, and the concrete floors that were saved and stained to beautiful warm hues. Open floor plans allow for natural light to brighten each home, and the kitchens are state-of-the-art, complete with as stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

Cultivating a sense of community is central to the design and purpose of Promenade Place, so the development features a landscaped courtyard, BBQ grilling area, a club room, a media room with a pool table, a fitness center and a swimming pool.

The pool is another amenity designed with the building’s history in mind and complements the building’s exterior. Aged brick and coping matches Promenade Place’s exterior, while Italian mosaic tiles dot the pool and the waterfall. White plaster enhances the clarity of water and gives the pool a modern touch.

It’s said that location is everything and Promenade Place certainly doesn’t disappoint. The downtown lofts are an easy drive to U.S. 59 and the development is located near a multi-block green space project called the International Promenade.

EaDo is a hub for nightlife, entertainment, restaurants and sporting events. The Houston Dynamo soccer stadium is within walking distance from Promenade Place and Minute Maid Park, home to the Houston Astros is just on the other side of the freeway and is also walkable.

St. Emanuel Street is a bustling section of EaDo offering Houstonians everything from art to bars. Lucky’s Pub and Tout Suite Cafe are just two of the spots locals love and more retail and entertainment options are on track to open within the next year.

Promenade Place offers two bedroom units ranging in size between 1,284 and 1,881 square feet, priced from $295,670 to $411,000. For a select time, special financing by Patriot Bank will be available to buyers. For more information, call Luke Fertitta at 713-974-4292.

To experience the historic nuances of Promenade Place for yourself, plan now to visit April 11 to 12 from noon to 4 p.m. for an open house event.

Promenade Place offers residents sweeping views of downtown Houston.

Beyoncé adds second Houston date to highly anticipated world tour due to massive surge in ticket demand

back-to-back bey

Houston Beyoncé fans, rejoice: Queen Bey has added another show to her just-announced Renaissance World Tour.

As CultureMap previously reported, Beyoncé is returning to her hometown in a show originally planned for September 23 at NRG Stadium. Now, due to surge in ticket demand, a second show at NRG has been added for the following day on September 24.

This comes as tour organizers have added seven new dates to the North American leg of the tour, based on Beyhive buzz.

According to LiveNation, fan demand for Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour now exceeds the number of available tickets by more than 800 percent, based on current registration numbers in the Group A cities.

Even with these added dates, LiveNation expects a majority of interested fans "will not be able to get tickets because demand drastically exceeds supply," per a press announcement.

Beyhive fans who miss the second Houston show can try to catch Bey in Dallas two days prior to the Houston show, where she'll play AT&T Stadium on September 21.

Ticketing for the world tour dates go on sale Monday, February 6. BeyHive members will enjoy an exclusive presale, while other fans can register now with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan technology here. Those interested can score tickets, schedules, and more information at beyonce.livenation.com and tour.beyonce.com.

Note to jet-setting Houstonians: The queen kicks off her world tour on May 10 in Stockholm, Sweden at the Friends Arena. She'll dot Europe with big stadium shows through June 27, where she'll play Warsaw, Poland.

Her North American tour starts July 8 in Canada, where she'll play Toronto's Rogers Centre. Beyoncé will trek the U.S. through the summer and into September; her Dallas and Houston shows are the sole Texas performances.

In a bit of a head scratcher, the Houston native will end her tour in New Orleans (Caesars Superdome) on September 27.

The world tour comes as Beyoncé is awash in Grammy glow: in November, she was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, tying her with her husband (neé Shawn Corey Carter) for the most nominations in Grammy history. Critics and fans have lauded Renaissance, her first solo work since the wildly popular and deeply personal 2016 effort, Lemonade — even through its minor controversy.
