Located within Houston's 610 Loop and just north of I-10, 7800 Washington is a unique mixed-use, adaptive re-use development in the heart of Houston. The building, a 66,000 SF red-brick, dock-high warehouse, was built in 1960 and has a rich and storied history of being home to some of Houston's notable industrial tenants, including The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, Stewart & Stevenson and Brian Thomas Display and Packaging. The building is currently occupied by Brian Thomas, which was purchased by Smurfit Kappa in 2014, and will vacate the building in October 2017. The project will then be redeveloped into a loft office development with furniture showrooms and a unique, chef-driven restaurant.
7800 Washington is part of the thriving Washington Avenue corridor of Houston, which is fast become a dense and impressive mixed use neighborhood of Houston. Home to world-class restaurants, recently developed high-rise apartment complexes and an impressive nightlife, Washington Avenue represents a growing and important urban node of Houston. In addition, the project is near Hines' new Somerset Green master-planned community and the Houston Design Center. 7800 Washington is also extremely well-located, with immediate access to critical freeways (I-10, I-610 W, I-610 N and US-290). Further, the property is well located to Houston's two airports, being 35 minutes away from Bush International Airport and 25 minutes away from Hobby Airport. Further, the project has quick access to several of Houston's important neighborhoods and districts, including:
• The Memorial Villages (< 10 minute drive)
• Uptown (< 10 minute drive)
• The Heights (20 minute bike ride, < 10 minute drive)
• Downtown (10-15 minute drive)
• Katy (25 minute drive)
The project is currently leasing office and restaurant tenants.
