The former Brownwood Hotel, shown in an aerial view, is the tallest building in Brown and neighboring counties.

It was Oct 2019, and Jeff Tucker was getting ready for the opening of his new company, “Teddy’s Brewhaus.”

Tucker was delighted that a developer experienced expressed desire in shopping for and renovating the previous Brownwood Hotel, the 12-tale, prolonged-vacant creating at Fisk and Baker streets — just throughout the road from Teddy’s.

The renovation of the historic developing, which opened in 1930, “would mean a ton,” Tucker said in an job interview on that Oct afternoon at Teddy’s, which was a couple days absent from seeing its first clients.  

That developer did not stop up purchasing the developing, which is owned by an entity recognised as 200 Fisk LLC.   

Practically two yrs later, Tucker’s corporation, Pecan Bayou Enterprises, has entered a deal with 200 Fisk LLC to invest in the iconic brown-brick setting up — the tallest framework, by far, in Brown and neighboring counties.
