Houston Center Repositioning
150,000 SF full-scale renovation of the mixed-use development at Houston Center
A mixed-use redevelopment of five existing buildings totaling 259,450 SF on a 12 acre lot. The warehouse site is at the corner of North Shepherd and 6th Street in the Heights neighborhood of Houston, Texas. The repositioning of an existing industrial park built between 1978 and 1980 into a 200,000 SF mixed-use center that is evenly split between retail, food and beverage, and Class-A office space.
This project created the first urban boardwalk in Houston along the MKT Hike and Bike Trail. A series of pathways were cut through the project to highlight the industrial history of the site, to provide walking paths for customers. The retail is primarily on the Shepherd frontage with an open pathway of restaurants connecting to the Hike and Bike Boardwalk. The office use is primarily along the eastern boarder of the site. The existing truck courts were repurposed as a surface parking lot to support the retail and restaurants. The office parking is shared between the eastern edge of the parking lot with covered parking within the structure of building four with a mezzanine office level structured above the parking lot.
