POST Houston captures Houston’s city life and diversity
By Monica Gomez
POST Houston is the newest attraction located in downtown Houston. Previously known as the Barbara Jordan post office, it has since been transformed by Lovett Commercial to be used as a commercial space for hosting events, providing a workplace, and vendors that covers approximately 550,000 square feet.
713 Music Hall is a new music venue that has emerged from the rise of POST, which will enhance the music experience in downtown Houston. This venue recently welcomed Mexican band Mana in late November.
Indira Zaldivar, The Dateline’s editor, attended the Mana concert at 713 Music Hall on Nov. 26. Zaldivar said she enjoyed beautiful music, a spectacle of lights and a “cozy” indoor atmosphere at the new music venue.
“The fact that this music venue is at a walking distance from UHD makes my college experience richer,” she added.
Along with the venue and commercial space, a sky lawn features a rooftop park and farm. It has a 5-acre rooftop that integrates with Buffalo Bayou Park.
POST Market currently hosts 30 vendors with food varieties from over 10 cultural backgrounds that highlight what represents Houston. Nicole Morris, the owner of Lucy Pearl’s Sweets is one of the vendors at POST. It has a great selection of bakery items that includes pies, cakes, cookies and other bakery goods.
“We bake for the love of sweets and people can taste the care and love we put into each bite of our cakes,” Morris said about her business motto.
Morris named the business after her mother, Sherry Lucille who she later called Lucy.
“She was a gem, so she ended up as Lucy Pearl to me and her friend called her sweets, so it was how we bake for the love of sweets was a play on words.”
Vendors like Lucy Pearl’s Sweets are about to showcase their products. With POST, they can have Houstonians try out a diverse selection of foods.
“The POST will bring the catalyst for us to be a good household name for baked goods,” Morris said.
With the diversity of Houston, this attraction is a great place to check out the newest events and try out foods. POST is currently open Wednesday through Sunday.
