The program is currently focused in the areas surrounding E Houston St. from N Alamo to N Flores Streets.
Participating properties benefit from having artists brighten up the look of their spaces, making them stand out as viable space for commercial use. The properties are put in the spotlight as artistic destinations and are promoted on supporting collateral including our web site and print brochures. The artworks are temporary but the improvements made to the properties and their surrounding area are lasting. If you are interested in becoming a participating property owner, please contact Marissa Laubscher (210)207-1435.
The Savoy Building, 122, 124, & 132 E Houston St., Peloton Property Management
These properties lie within a historic building on an up and coming block. Right next to the Book Building, popular Luke restaurant is right across the street and the facades can be seen by diners. The block is also home to a salon, convenience store, coffee shop and deli. The three spaces are close enough that they could be used in a larger more cohesive installation that could span across the building floors and windows on a larger scale. 122 E Houston is the old home of Guerra Deberry & Co., a print media and PR firm and is in great condition. The downstairs offers clean window exhibition space as well as elctricity, the top two levels offer clean office spaces with hardwood floors and beautiful finishes.
