Developer Weston Urban is reaching beyond downtown as it prepares to buy the historic Koehler House from the Alamo Colleges District.
In 2015, GrayStreet Partners announced it had purchased several iconic buildings on East Houston Street, and spoke of the corridor’s rebirth. Nearly seven years later, the local developer has been selling off its assets as it shifts focus, and capital, to other projects.

GrayStreet Partners, one of the largest holders of downtown real estate, has begun putting a 15,000-square-foot food hall into the ground and mezzanine levels of the former children’s museum on East Houston Street.
