HOUSTON – Phase II of BLVD Place, a mixed-use development under construction in the Uptown area of Houston, is 80 percent leased, says Ed Wulfe, of Wulfe & Co., the project’s developer.
Located on the southwest corner of Post Oak Boulevard and San Felipe, BLVD Place will feature retail, restaurant, office and residential components. The complex is scheduled to open Phase II in early fall 2014 which will contain 215,000 square feet with a 52,000 square foot Whole Foods Market and a 55,000 square foot regional headquarters for Frost Bank as major tenants.
Peska, a new fresh market seafood restaurant, will open a 6,000 square foot signature concept . “Peska is a sophisticated, fresh seafood restaurant with a high energy vibe,” said Design Director Lisa Pope-Westerman of Gensler, architects for the restaurant.
“It’s a restaurant concept that we think our customers will really appreciate and enjoy”, Wulfe said. “As the state-of-the-art development nears completion, we have experienced increased interest in the remaining office space because of the high profile and easily accessible location with its abundance of a variety of amenities for employees and clients in the people friendly and lively place to work, shop and live.”
Phase I of BLVD Place is a four level 70,000 square foot retail/office building and is 100% occupied. Tenants include RDG Restaurant+Bar Annie, The Table Restaurant, Hermes, Herman Miller, New Balance and numerous other tenants. Hanover has under construction a new 29 story luxury residential tower also scheduled to open this fall across Post Oak Lane from Peska.
