Dallas-based commercial real estate firm Stream Realty Partners LP has some pretty ambitious plans to change downtown Austin, as Austin Monitor reported. He wants to open many concert halls along Sixth Street, according to his plans presented at the end of June to the Austin Music Commission. This would include transforming the original sprawling former site of Easy Tiger (which officially closed in September 2020 because the company was unable to secure a lease with its landlord during the pandemic) in not one but three separate restaurant and concert hall spaces, as well as a concert space in the Dirty Dog address (which also closed due to pandemic difficulties in August 2020), and a new music space underground somewhere at 500 Sixth Street.
