Over the last three weeks, it seems that there has been a different party or event at Seaholm, the decommissioned art deco power plant in the heart of downtown, almost every night.
During the innovative Fusebox arts festival, Seaholm was busy as a music and post-event party venue into the early morning hours. With great lighting and pop-up bars inside and a line of food trailers outside, the large Seaholm main space was often filled with people.

While future plans have not been released, the building is slated for use as a community or cultural space as part of the massive redevelopment of the blocks between Lamar and San Antonio just north of the lake. With tight commercial lending requirements, there is no current timeline for redevelopment of the Seaholm or adjacent Green Water Treatment Plan (now decommissioned and demolished) sites.
