大俠天下行

【大俠行天下日記 /我見我聞我思 /華人之光-德州休斯敦觀光商業新地標/美南报业电视集团董事长 李蔚华】

 

由華人開發商劉明剛領導的愛心地產開發公司, 把一棟已成廢墟的聯邦郵政總局改造成為休斯敦歡光文化商業之新地標 ,一時成為地產界之佳話。

休斯敦聯邦郵政總局佔地十六英畝, 建筑面積是五十五萬平方英尺 ,聯邦政府是在二O一四年轉售給劉明剛所屬之地產公司。

主持這項重建工程的劉明剛之子Kirby 劉表示, 他決心把這個老的郵局在既有的建築基礎上改建為餐飲、 文藝演出、 辦公空間及創造一座五英畝之屋頂空中花園 ,也是全美最大的一個大花園。

今天上午我有幸參觀了這座改建後的大樓, 走進色彩繽紛的食街, 來自各國不同族裔的美食佳餚, 齊滿了攜幼扶老的全家大小在長桌上亨受美食。

走到頂樓廣塲, 這個佔地廣大之平台, 不但種満了各種花卉及樹木, 眺望休斯敦市中心的高樓大廈, 盡收眼底 ,不但令人心矌神怡 ,微風徐徐 ,也激起對劉明剛先生之敬意和欽佩, 也是我們華人的驕傲。

Houston’s New Tourist Landmark

The 550,000 square-foot former Houston Post Office building has undergone a major innovation by Lovett Commercial Development Company that has remodeled the space into a multi-use project that includes a food court, a concert hall, office space and rooftop gardens.

Lovett Commercial’s Director of Development and Project Manager Kirby Liu said the firm took on the redevelopment project as a showcase for reusing old buildings rather than tearing them down and as a way to rebel against the strip mall concept.

Built in 1961, the former post office was named after the first Black congresswoman Barbara Jordan. This morning we had an opportunity to visit the POST’s food project that is open to all different ethnic groups. We were in the big hall where many people were enjoying their meals with their families.

Walking on the rooftop of the building, this vast space is full of all kinds of flowers and overlooks the sprawling skyline of downtown Houston.

We are certainly happy that Mr. Liu’s family has brought such a wonderful project to Houston. We are very proud of you.
