Tin Hall (the building itself, anyway) is now back in the hands of pre-2014 owner Fred Stockton, report Shawn Arrajj and Emily Donaldson. The Tin Hall property was bought by Mark Martinez in 2014, who sold the land to MHI McGuyer Homebuilders later that year; Martinez was allowed time after the Hall’s closing to relocate the structure, and made plans to move it down to a spot off Spring Cypress Rd. just east of Dry Creek — a process slowed down by issues with finding water for the venue and its planned nextdoor retail development.
The homebuilders reportedly got tired of waiting last month and gave rights to the building to next-on-the-waiting-list Stockton, who is now looking for a new place to set it up. Stockton and Cypress restaurateur Joe Duong will be reopening the structure wherever it lands, but the next iteration of the venue won’t be a dance hall — “they are fun to talk about,” Stockton tells Community Impact, “but no one goes to them.”
