The latest addition to the street-fronting retail strip planned for the former Alabama Furniture Store site at 2200 Yale St. appears to be a pair of Texas Children’s urgent and less-urgent care facilities. The medical groups are named as tenants in a pair of Braun Enterprises leasing documents filed with the county (which include the 90-degrees-off siteplan above). That’s the planned 3rd non-mobile location of Bernie’s Burger Bus shown on the far right, at the south end of the strip; the other 2 children-themed businesses are shown taking up the remaining 13,112 sq.ft. of leasable space in the center.
A 68-spot parking lot is depicted behind the Yale-facing center, which runs between W. 22nd and W. 23rd streets; the former sites of Fashion Touch Cleaners and Midtown Floors were permitted for destruction about the same time as the now-departed furniture store.
Bernie’s will be competing with the nearby McDonald’s at the corner of Yale with 21st for the attention of both 2125 Yale apartment dwellers and Hamilton Middle School students; depending on the final layout of the new strip center, the bus-themed burger joint may command a view of the dog-walking action around LEED-certified Friends For Life pet adoption building to the east on 22nd.
