Last week Lucky Strike Lanes announced that the stalled buildout of the company’s new upscale bowling alley and lounge in Houston Pavilions would be “put on hold” — indefinitely. This time the company isn’t complaining about delayed equipment deliveries, though. It’s delayed money deliveries:
“At the moment we are seeking financing to complete the project and are having meaningful conversations with potential Houston-based partners as well as investors from elsewhere in the country,” Lucky Strike President Dolf Berle said. “We are still dedicated and committed to opening in Houston.”
Meanwhile, this past Wednesday night HAIF poster houstonartstudent reported the quiet withdrawal of two minor — and seemingly out-of-place — retail tenants:
…walked around this evening with some friends and workers were boarding up the “previous” [Lidz] store…and then we walked past Journeys and saw they had tons of boxes of inventory, but upon further look it turns out they’re mailing product out to other stores…so it looks like they’ll be boarding that one up pretty soon.
Lidz and Journeys Shoes are both now gone from Houston Pavilions’ online tenant directory, but Lucky Strike Lanes is apparently still worth listing. A new Mexican restaurant, Guadalajara del Centro, opened up at the corner of San Jacinto and Dallas (in the complex) last week.
