Dallas-based commercial real estate company Stream Realty Partners LP has pretty ambitious plans to change downtown Austin, as reported by Austin Monitor. It wants to open a lot of music venues along Sixth Street, according to its plans presented in late June to the Austin Music Commission. This would include transforming the sprawling former original Easy Tiger location (which closed officially in September 2020 because the company wasn’t able to work out a lease with its landlord during the pandemic) into not one but three separate restaurant and concert venue spaces, as well as a concert space in the Dirty Dog address (which also closed due to pandemic difficulties in August 2020), and new subterranean music space somewhere on 500 Sixth Street.
