Tom Calhoon, owner of the building at the southeast corner of 4th and Lavaca (Warehouse District), is redeveloping his property into an event-venue space called The Riley.
You might recognize the building, as it used to be home to 219 West, and recently the Red Room. The latter operator was not there long and notable for accusations of LGBT discrimination.
Details are sparse, but it’s very interesting to see downtown development that’s not a high rise!
Also, this is the second major development on this intersection… caddy corner, Gables and Hotel ZaZa are expected to break ground soon on a 25 story tower.
