Did the article mention anything about financing? Likely have to wait until another big upswing when the land use will be better served for the investment in “upgrades”. I’d imagine it’s hard to compete with River Oaks Place & BLVD Place. They have a good lunch and dinner crowd now.

Uptown is lit up with holiday lights! It's so beautiful! Stretches so far too.  The Mercer on Richmond to Greenway Plaza (approx).

 

Don't know where to post this. Might be the wrong area

From the article:

Back in 2015, Uptown Park's then-owner, AmREIT Inc., announced a $1 billion redevelopment of the project that would include new multifamily and hotel developments, as well as a complete renovation of the project's existing retail development. But a few months later, AmREIT was purchased by South Carolina-based Edens Investment Trust, and any changes to Uptown Park were tabled.

 

Until now.

 

Starting in 2018, Edens will begin a multiphase renovation of the 168,626 square feet of retail space comprised in the district, said Tom Kiler, managing director at Edens. The company won't be breaking ground on any vertical development anytime soon, Kiler said, though Edens hopes to eventually add either a hospitality, office or multifamily development to Uptown Park.



In this phase of the redevelopment, front-facing facades of existing retailers will be modernized and simplified. Towering live oaks will be transferred and transplanted into shade-scarce parts of Uptown Park. To better connect the project's buildings to one another, small kiosks and green gathering areas will be installed throughout the development.

 

 

New tenants coming to Uptown Park:
Another restaurant will be added to Uptown Park, Kiler said, and ideally one that would cater to Houston's on-the-run lunch and dinner crowd. The company's currently in discussions for a "best-in-class" restaurant to fill the space vacated by Anejo last year and an entertainment concept to fill the vacated Champps sports bar space. Kiler predicts Uptown Park will gain a vertical project in the next development cycle, but isn't sure what kind of development it'll be.

 

Edens is a longterm holder and isn't planning to sell Uptown Park. Any new hotel, office building or multifamily development wouldn't replace any existing retail, Kiler said. The company's currently in negotiations with at least one prospective tenant for any of the project's empty retail spaces – by October 2018, Kiler said the project should be 100 percent leased and well on its way to being 100 percent open for business.

One of the restaurants opening in the Eden-owned Uptown Park in Houston is Flower Child (source: Facebook group and this construction bid posted last week).
 

 

Eater Houston reported in October the Fox Restaurant Concepts Flower Child would open in Houston. No location was reported at the time the article was published.

From Eater:
Flower Child, a healthy restaurant chain that’s owned by the same company as North Italia, has plans to bring its hippie-approved wares to Houston.


The fledgling chain from Fox Restaurant Concepts (North Italia, True Food Kitchen) announced that it was heading to Houston (among other cities) in a press release, but no specific plans for a location or opening timeline have been made public just yet.



Here is where Flower Child will be located in Uptown Park. The address is 1101-06 Uptown Park Blvd, replacing clothing store BB1 Classic.
