HOUSTON — Concept Neighborhood – the Houston-based real estate investment, development and management company behind the walkable neighborhood, The Plant/Second Ward – announced that Aurora Picture Show has signed a 2,500 SF lease at 201 Roberts St. for the arts organization’s headquarters. The new space will not only house its offices, but it will serve as a venue for its screenings, film festivals, installations, live performances, artist talks and member events. The 25-year-old nonprofit media arts center will relocate its operations to the historic Second Ward neighborhood in Houston’s East End Cultural District in late 2023.

“The Second Ward has a rich, robust creative and maker community, and Aurora Picture Show’s decision to relocate its headquarters here further validates the vibrancy of this unique pocket of Houston,” said Jeff Kaplan, managing principal of Concept Neighborhood. “Much of The Plant/Second Ward will focus on creative maker space, given the East End’s designation as a cultural district and its proximity to Buffalo Bayou, and we believe that their move into the neighborhood will further attract artists and arts organization to the corridor.”

Late last year, Concept Neighborhood unveiled plans for The Plant/Second Ward, billed as Houston’s first walkable urban corridor. Stretching from Harrisburg Boulevard to Buffalo Bayou East, The Plant/Second Ward will integrate the local community by connecting the right density of creatives, shops, restaurants, gathering places and public amenities. The company’s vision includes 250,000 SF of authentic retail and creative office/urban maker space along with more than 1,000 multifamily units designed for a mix of market-rate, workforce housing.

Aurora Picture Show’s new headquarters will be located within one of 13 historic industrial buildings that once served as the headquarters of oil field manufacturer W-K-M. Plans for the 145,000 SF assemblage include the creation of Roberts Row, a collection of hyperlocal shops and businesses with new public greenspaces, sidewalks and trails that will take root along Roberts Street between Garrow and Commerce streets.

Concept Neighborhood was self-represented by Kaplan  and managing principal Jeremy Roberts.  Aurora Picture Show was represented by Sarah Stauder  on behalf of the Board of Directors of Aurora Picture Show.
