Behold, the former USPS warehouse as a new a cutting-edge, multi-purpose, multi-layered facility with a complete technical re-design. Featuring multiple double-helix staircases, a trio of skylit atriums, and a FIVE-ACRE ROOFTOP PARK AND FARM, the complex will go down in history as one of Houston’s most innovative projects to date.
It’s roster of vendors includes: Ander Cafe, Sweets with L&L, Chop n Blok, Soupreme, Taco Fuego, Thai Kun, Soy Pinoy, Blendin Coffee Club, Arabella Mediterranean Cuisine, East Side King, Earth and Roots CBD, G’Raj Mahal, Roberta’s, Hawker 45, The Butcher’s Burger, Whisk Crepes Cafe, Flower and Cream, Salt and Time Butcher Shop, Gelu Italian Ice, and Lea Jane’s Hot Chicken.
Additionally, Post Houston is opening a massive concert venue. The Terminal will have a capacity of 5,000 people – larger than, say, the 3,200 capacity of White Oak Music Hall, but much smaller than Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion or the Toyota Center. Despite its size, designers hope to give the venue the feel of a small club.
Its Texas-sized rooftop park and farm – known as Skylawn – will in part serve as a wedding venue, with the Houston skyline as a breathtaking backdrop.
Post Houston is holding its grand opening on Saturday, November 13. For the much-anticipated opening, Post will put on a upbeat mix of festive events and expositions, including the Houston Cinema Arts Festival on its Skylawn rooftop garden, featuring a multiple multi-media pieces as well as a screening of the 1975 cult-classic documentary, Grey Gardens from 7 – 9 pm.
Its Southeast Parking Lot will host the Luxury and Exotics Auto Show, featuring Houston’s hottest whips from its top collectors from 3 pm – 8 pm. On the flip side, in the Southwest Parking Lot will host Michelob Ultra Tailgate Zone from 11 am – 12 am, featuring two gigantic screens playing non-stop college football, and local Houston sports. Complimentary adult beverage tastings will also be available.
From noon to 9 pm, Post will host an outdoor flea market at its Market Docks.
Lastly, the grand opening will see the volume turned up to 11 with a lively mix of live music:
“A full day of festivities culminate in electrifying performances featuring Danny Tenaglia and Matthew Dear with Cirque Noir at the Grey Goose Diamond Stage in POST’s iconic X Atrium and additional performances by Com Truise, Fat Tony, Peelander Yellow, Outspoken Bean and others on the POST Market Docks. ”
