Colliers to Lease Katy Project
KATY, Texas – Colliers has been tapped to handle retail leasing at the new Katy Boardwalk District. Colliers retail services team of Wade Greene, Kimberly Lenardson and Hannah Tosch is currently in discussions with several notable restaurant, bar and entertainment concepts for the lakefront destination.
“We’ve heard from a number of concepts both here in Houston and across the country,” said Greene, who also manages Colliers hospitality advisory teams. “We’re certainly evaluating all of these opportunities to determine the best ones for the project.”
An announcement of Katy Boardwalk District’s first tenants should come in early 2022.
Method Architecture has also joined the development team to re-imagine the mixed-use and retail site plan to better maximize the appeal of its 90-acre, nature-inspired lake displaying the region’s native trees, flora and wildlife.
“The impact of COVID-19 gave us extra time to re-evaluate the site plan to ensure we’re incorporating the lakefront experience into the entire project,” said Keith Dalton of KBH Venture, co-developer of the Katy Boardwalk District.
Dalton said greater emphasis will be placed on improved sight lines and accessibility to the lake for hotel guests and those visiting the destination to dine or simply enjoy an outdoor activity on the public green space. A refined site plan is expected this fall.
“As a public/private partnership, we’re delighted to work with a team of professionals with the experience and vision needed to bring the boardwalk to life,” said Skip Conner, president of the Katy Development Authority.
Katy Boardwalk District will also be home to a 304-room hotel and conference center. Its multifamily component, Boardwalk Lofts, will open this fall.
The 169-acre setting at Kingsland Boulevard and Prairie Parkway, just south of I-10, is a public/private partnership among the City of Katy, the Katy Development Authority and developers KBH Venture and Sueba USA, all key stakeholders in Katy Boardwalk District.
