Luxe Retail Center Acquired by Tilman Fertitta

HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) –  Houston billionaire Tilman Fertitta has acquired the River Oaks District, a 13.9-acre retail and upscale mixed-use development at 4444 Westheimer Road, just east of Loop 610.

The $450 million purchase gives Fertitta a roster of tenants from the upper crust of retail brands including Hermes, Cartier, Rolex, Dior, Van Cleef & Arpels, Patek Phillip, Brunello Cucinelli, Balmain, Zimmerman, and Harry Winston. Recently announced first-to-market additions include Stefano Ricci, Adam Lippes, Hastens and Biologique Recherche slated to open this year with more to be announced in upcoming months, Fertitta said.
