HOUSTON – A new culinary marketplace is set to open in fall 2018 in downtown Houston's Theatre District.
The Lyric Market is a 31,000 square foot project with terraces and a plaza centered around The Virtuoso sculpture of the Lyric Centre at the intersection of Smith and Prairie streets.
The building's glass exterior will feature LED panels and a glass box hovering 60 feet over the sidewalks.
The Lyric Market will also feature a terrace with seating, fire pits and a view of the plaza below.
"There is no question that great food has always been a large part of Houston culture. We wanted to celebrate that and marry it with a memorable experience that would leave you wanting to return," real estate developer Jonathan Enav said. "Throughout, you will find yourself surrounded by a beautifully designed space crafted with painstaking attention to detail, an exciting atmosphere filled with live music, and the hustle and bustle of an international market all in Downtown Houston."
The building also has nearly 800 above-ground parking spaces.
Local restaurant group Clark Cooper Concepts will spearhead bringing the culinary choices to the market.
The project is estimated to cost $58 million.
