The San Antonio developer who recently tore down the former On Leong Merchants Association building at 801 Chartres behind the George R. Brown Convention Center tells reporter Jennifer Dawson that Wyndham Hotels will operate the $12 million, 12-story Wyndham or Wyndham Grand he plans to build there, not far from where Dynamo Stadium is being built. According to Dawson, the hotel site — which Ocean2Ocean Development acquired from foreclosure last month — incorporates a half acre on the block surrounded by Rusk, Chartres, Walker, and Saint Emanuel. Behind that property currently: the strip-center location of East Downtown mini-grocer Epicurean Express (in photo). [Houston Business Journal] Photo: Candace Garcia
