Were it nighttime and the glass a bit more seamless, this mod industrial storefront might work as a stand-in for the scene of Edward Hopper’s iconic Nighthawks. The contoured corner hugs the corner of Leeland and St. Emanuel St., a block past the Eastex Fwy. overpass and the eastern border of Downtown. The building’s 4,250 sq. ft. footprint sits on a 5,000-sq.-ft. corner lot in a warehouse-y district within eyeshot of the Toyota Center. It was listed on the MLS for $600K last summer, but has stayed on the market through various relistings since October 2013 for a bit more: $650K.
The front section of the building — which the listing says is made of solid concrete — sports showroom windows. They look north and swing west a bit — when they’re not covered by the exterior’s rollaround steel curtain.
Aqua-trimmed rooms off the interior hallway may correspond to the split-plan “bedroom” and half-bath mentioned in the residential listing.
In the main room there’s plenty of flex-space and storage under all the boxes currently housed on-site:
In addition to paved parking along one side of the building, there’s a 3-car bay of tandem parking behind fencing capped in barbed wire:
HCAD pegs the space under the canopy at 800 sq. ft.
A portion of the building, also aqua-painted, has a different address. It’s home to The Green Bone dog lounge.
