Rendering of Fulshear Marketplace.
HOUSTON – Capital Retail Properties of Houston is developing a 17,200-SF retail center at FM 1093 and 359 in Fulshear, west of Houston.
Gensler designed the center, expected to break ground in the fall of 2019. The developer purchased five acres and will sell pad sites.
According to Capital Retail Properties’ Connor Lynch, who is overseeing leasing with associate Jacob Weersing, “Our goal for Fulshear Marketplace is to introduce a boutique, upscale shopping, services and restaurant environment that meets the demands and expectations of this picturesque pocket of affluent and rapidly growing northwest Fort Bend County.”
Tasked to create a standout experience for the important intersection, Gensler has created a facade that harnesses variety and a stylistic use of materials to reference local architecture with a nod to the past. Special elements include unique brick patterns and corbeling; timber entry canopies and trellis; and vertical metal and plank paneling. The overall design offers a more contextual look and feel by breaking down the overall elements to fit the scale of the community. A corner anchor space proposed for a food and beverage tenant is expressed and enhanced with large partially covered patio feature.
