New Inner Loop Mix USE Development Alive and Kicking Again

A New River Oaks development will be managed by director Greg Wattson of OliverMcMillan and it is starting up its $450M mixed-use project,again. It will be a 15-acre site, bounded by Westheimer, Westcreek, and Bettis. The 650k SF River Oaks District will feature 270k SF of luxury retail (including restaurants and a theater), 279 units of multifamily (on top of retail) and a 93k SF office (which may end up as 63k SF of office over retail). Greg believes that retail Will drive the project and the experience of living and working there is an added benefit. The firm is vacating existing buildings now, and demolition begins in early 2013. Look for grand opening in fall 2014.
