The property will house the first Inner Loop location of BlendIn Coffee Club as well as offices for a to-be-announced technology firm and a major state university.
“The historic attributes of the 100[-plus-]year-old building will contrast nicely with BlendIn Coffee’s contemporary and polished café [build-out]. We are thrilled to bring BlendIn to the area and to activate the building with an award-winning coffee shop,” Radom Vice President Barton Kelly said in the release.
Work on the 3201 Allen Parkway building, originally the Star Engraving Company Building and once home to the Houston Children's Museum, is turning it into a retail and office hub. The project is being led by architects Perkins + Will, landscape architect SWA Group and interior design firm Perrin Projects.
“We tasked our talented design team with preserving the soul of the historic buildings while establishing a modern environment reflective of our tenants’ brands," Managing Principal Steve Radom said.
Tenants and guests will be able to access the nearby 300-space parking garage at the new Stages campus.
According to Radom Capital, the majority of the property is leased, but a few retail suites and office spaces remain available.
