Making Way for Movie Making in Midtown

A variance to reduce the setback from Caroline and Truxillo was recently approved, clearing the way for this 2-story film studio to go up in Midtown. Dubbed Buffalo Studios, the CONTENT-designed building will sit on a 5,630-sq.-ft. lot at the southeast corner of Caroline and Truxillo, which appears to be currently occupied by a warehouse. The proposed site is catty-corner from the former Houston Light Guard Armory, now open as the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum, a block south of HCC and just around the corner from the proposed site of Retrospect Coffee, the cafe and wine bar being built out at that abandoned gas station on La Branch.


Plans for the studio show a green room, workshop, conference room, editing bays, and a rooftop terrace.

  • Who is the client for this project? Is there a company or non-profit attached? Can’t find that info in any of the releases, and it’s hard to imagine anyone building a studio space on spec…anyway, looks like it could be a great new building. Well done Content, and hope to see it built soon.
