POST Houston, abandoned post office turned restaurant and concert hall, sets opening date
For years, the Barbara Jordan post office in downtown Houston quietly morphed into POST Houston: a mixed-use development featuring a restaurant inspired by night markets where small vendors sell street food in Asia, a 5.5 acre rooftop park where a rotating music stage offers skyline views and a warehouse-style concert hall. Now, the developer behind the project, Lovett Commercial, has announced the official opening date of POST Houston: November 13.
Project features include a shiny double helix that stretches to the top of the old 555,000 square foot mail sorting warehouse, one of the many unusual stairs leading to the roof, as well as a translucent plastic and lightweight known as ETFE and designed for the aerospace industry. It stretches in bubbles over large excised parts of the ceiling, allowing natural light to filter through into a dining room.
