The 1980’sÂ kiosk formerly used to run MJ Motorcars out of the expansive parking lot of the Southwest Plaza Shopping Center, a reader notes, isÂ nowÂ being turned into a drive-thru daiquiri shop.Â Houston has been slowly picking up on theÂ tape-over-the-strawhole skirting of open container laws overÂ the last few years; the new Prime Daiquiri location in front of 8150 Beechnut St.Â will provide an alternative for those with noÂ time to hit up Club TequilaÂ in one the retail center’sÂ anchor spots (between noodle shop Tau Bay, the freshlyÂ opened Planet Fitness branch, and Harbor Freight Tools).
AÂ site planÂ included in Investar Real Estate Services’s leasing flier for the property shows the to-go bar in place in the kiosk, as well asÂ a few new pad sites drawn into place near by:
The flier also includes a rendered view showing all those new hats that have been landing on top of the 1967 shopping center:
