Houston George R. Brown 30,000 SF retail ready by Super BowlHouston George R. Brown 30,000 SF retail ready by Super Bowlhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=16692015-02-23T07:21:00Z2015-02-23T00:00:00Z

HOUSTON - Up to seven new restaurants, sidewalk cafes and entertainment venues will be part of a makeover of the George R. Brown Convention Center and surrounding areas.

Approximately 30,000 sf of restaurant and other venue spaces will front Avenida de las Americas, which is being narrowed to make room for outdoor plazas designed to connect people in the George R. Brown to Discovery Green Park across the street.

The spaces will range from 1,500 sf to more than 10,000 sf. Roadwork and renovations are underway, including the addition of a grand entryway at the convention center.

Houston First Corp., which manages the convention center, is working with Griffin Partners and Wulfe & Co. in the development process. Houston First is also developing an office building at the northern end of the convention center which will house some of the new retail space.

The new retail and entertainment spaces are targeted for opening late 2016 around the same time as the The Marriott Marquis under construction nearby. They are expected to be open in time for the Super Bowl in 2017.
