Renovated downtown Houston building to add food hall

The Jones on Main — a downtown property that’s undergoing a number of changes — reportedly will add a food hall.

The Houston Chronicle reports the food hall is expected to open in early 2018 in the JPMorgan Chase Building at 712 Main. Developers selected Austin-based Oz Rey LLC to develop and operate the food hall.

Specific concepts have not signed on to the 20,000-square-foot project yet, but it is expected to feature "chef-driven food outlets, a craft beer and curated wine bar, and art deco cocktail lounge and unique private spaces,” the Chronicle reports.

Renovations proposed at the time included connecting the two buildings at the ground level via a joint common space and adding classically inspired interior amenities throughout the space. Plans also called for a new restaurant and space for retail with sidewalk patios along Main Street and Rusk Street. The renovations were expected to be complete in early 2017.

More recently, New York-based WeWork signed a lease for approximately 86,000 square feet at 708 Main. The co-working giant is expected to move in toward the end of 2017. Houston-based custom menswear store Established Bespoke also signed a lease in The Jones on Main late last year.

Directly across the street, work to convert 723 Main into an AC Hotel by Marriott began in March.
