The Terminal, a 5,000-person concert venue, will open later this year at POST Houston (shopping mall in Houston, Texas), the new mixed-use complex at the former Barbara Jordan Post Office in downtown Houston (US).

‘’ stated that the American global entertainment company Live Nation announced plans recently for the venue that is scheduled to open in November this year. The first lineup of shows is expected in July. Because the City of Houston deemed construction an essential activity, development was not affected by the COVID-19 pandemic which not very long back had the United States in its throes.

The Terminal was designed by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, led by partner Jason Long. Despite the capacity, higher than the nearby Bayou Music Center and less than Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land (indoor live performance venue), it will have the feel of a small club. All balcony aisles and walkways have been designed at angles so that the artiste onstage sees only a sea of people.

Observed Tim Jorgensen, Vice-President, Operations, Live Nation, “It fits perfectly into the Houston market, where there isn’t a 5,000- capacity venue. The sweet spot for artistes to engage with fans is often Terminal size. We’re filling a basic Houston need and indeed expect to thrive.”

‘’ further stated that the floor will be a general admission space, and above will be seated balconies called Tribune Tiers. The venue will combine fiber glass grating, polycarbonate and aluminized fabric with an array of multicolored lighting effects.

Jorgensen informed that The Terminal, and all Live Nation venues, will follow local and State health guidelines, “including but not limited to mask usage, social distancing and occupancy constraints”.

POST Houston, where The Terminal will sit, is located at the Northern end of downtown and will offer food, shopping and recreation options. Early occupants include Salt & Time Butcher Shop, Lea Jane’s Hot Chicken and Taco Fuego. The rooftop, dubbed the Skylawn, will include a park and urban farm.

The site was the location of Houston’s Day for Night music and art festival in 2016 and 2017.
