On 10/27/2017 at 6:02 PM, Fortune said:





 

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.

Houston Chronicle reports on the Uptown Park renovations in Uptown:


 

Uptown Park, the Italianate shopping district abut a mile north of the Galleria, represented an innovation in retail development when it opened in 2000.
 

The original developer called it a “lifestyle experience” where shoppers could stroll along hand-paved walkways between boutiques and cafes, taking in the architectural elements of old-world Europe: brightly colored window boxes, Italian urns and stone columns.
 

But as today’s high-end shoppers seek a more authentic aesthetic, the newest owner of Uptown Park is giving the property a modern-day makeover.
 

Construction fences surround the first batch of buildings being updated with cleaner, more modern storefronts. Over the next several months, the center will be getting more outdoor seating and fresh landscaping, offering shade and a feeling of shelter or inclusion that’s been shown to encourage shoppers to stick around longer.

 

“Our goal is to get you to come there 3½ times a week and to stay there 90 minutes each time,” said managing director Tom Kiler of Edens, which took over the project in 2015.


...New retailers will open there this fall when much of the work will be completed.
 

Ideally, Kiler said, the center will have new restaurants, more home and apparel retailers and perhaps a small market with freshly prepared foods. An entertainment concept with a music theme is also under consideration.
 

Many existing tenants, Kiler said, do well and have strong followings, but because they are separated in individual buildings broken up by parking lots, they don’t benefit from the additional activity that can come from proximity.

Official confirmation for Flower Child.


 

EDENS sets timeline for Flower Child at Uptown Park in Houston:
 

 

"We know Uptown Park serves as a dynamic destination for the best shopping and dining available in the city," said Tom Kiler, Managing Director at EDENS. "Every new retail shop and restaurant will enhance our current offering, while updating Uptown Park's aesthetic will create a fresh and better-connected environment for our current and future retail partners, locals and visitors, alike."
 

Flower Child, an Arizona-based health food concept, is the first new restaurant with plans to open this summer.


Details on renovations to Uptown Park
 

The extensive redevelopment plans are focused on utilizing the abundant outdoor space to maximize areas for guests to unwind and socialize. The addition of trellises will span the property and provide shaded walkways that will connect the buildings, while outdoor conversation areas equipped with wireless internet will provide meeting and lounging spots. Common areas throughout the property will also be refreshed and enhanced with art to create a cohesive destination for the community to enjoy.
 

"We are working diligently to infuse the diversity and personality found across Houston at Uptown Park, so visitors can expect collaborations with artists, events with local charities and experiences that highlight Houston's position as a global, first-class city," continued Kiler.
 

While renovations are completed, all retailers, restaurants and services at Uptown Park will remain open, including Araya Chocolate, Belvedere, Bill Walker Clothier, Café Express, Carrie Ann, Caruggi's, Ceron Hair Studio, Crave Cupcakes, Drybar, E*Trade, Elizabeth Anthony, Embajadores Fine Cigars, Etoile Cuisine et Bar, Executive Baskets, Francesca's, Gittings Portraiture, High Gloss, Lewis Jewelers, Linda's Couture Alterations, LOFT, Longoria Collection, Lucho Boutique, M Penner, McCormick & Schmick's, Potbelly Sandwich Works, Songkran Thai Kitchen, Starbucks Coffee, The Tasting Room, Top Drawer Lingerie, Uptown Park Dental, Uptown Sushi and Utopia Plastic Surgery & Medspa.

From a press release today about Uptown Park's renovations:

 

Beginning in April of this year, redevelopment activity has included updating all building façades for a clean aesthetic, maximizing storefronts and brightening the exterior colors to modernize the consumer experience. The addition of trellises now span the property and provide shaded walkways that connect the buildings for pedestrians. Parking has been reconfigured to accommodate outdoor conversation areas for guests to unwind and socialize, as well as improved walkability and safety. Final details, including soft-seating and public Wi-Fi, will coincide with construction completion scheduled for late fall. Retail openings will continue into late next year.
 

Newly announced retail also includes Rejuvenation, a Williams-Sonoma company offering classic American lighting, furniture, hardware and décor, will open later this year and will be the store's first Texas location. 
 

Rejuvenation joins Flower Child, an Arizona-based health-food concept by Fox Restaurant Concepts, scheduled to open September 12.
 

"Modernizing Uptown Park into a social hub by adding new restaurants and retailers continues to build Houston's appeal as a world-class city. Coupled with our commitment to enriching this great community, seeing this transformation come to life is a great accomplishment for our EDENS team," continued Kiler.

Nope. Great addition. 

Also news that Revolution studios will be moving in next door to the Rustic, and that they’ll be giving Belvedere the boot. 



Thanks for catching that! I missed it. 

I had many good time at the Belvedere. I don't think it's like what it used to be, but I'll miss its presence.

Another addition to Uptown Park in Houston:

A restaurant from J. Alexander's. The article does not detail if it's J/ Alexander's or a new restaurant from the group.

 

 


J. Alexander’s Holdings, Inc., owner and operator of a collection of upscale restaurants, has signed a lease to open a new J. Alexander’s/Grill restaurant in Houston, TX.

 

Lonnie J. Stout II, President and Chief Executive Officer of J. Alexander’s Holdings, Inc., said the new restaurant will be located at 1180 Uptown Park Boulevard in Uptown Park. Plans for the new restaurant call for approximately 8,000 square feet with seating for 200 guests. Approximately 90 full and part time professionals will be employed to operate the restaurant.
 

“We're pleased to announce plans for our newest J. Alexander’s/Grill restaurant,” Stout said. “The signing of this lease culminates months of extensive research to identify a premier site in Houston. We expect to begin construction immediately with an opening currently scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.”

The J. Alexander’s/Grill restaurant in Houston is being designed by Shea Architects, Inc., Minneapolis, MN.

I guess we now know what will be replacing the space formerly occupied by Arturo's and Anejo's.

Still think Ninfa's would have been a better fit despite what the landlord's thought. 

I am excited about Ninfa's opening at Uptown Blvd of course...

 






You are right, @gene. The J. Alexander's Houston restaurant is replacing Lasco Enterprises'  Añejo Tex-Mex restaurant in Uptown Park, 1180 Uptown Park Blvd, Ste 1. And from the site plans, J. Alexander's also leased the space next to it. It was Serente Spa, 1180 Uptown Park Blvd, Ste 4. Together, the near total square footage is 8,000 sq ft, as in the press release above.

I agree with you on Original Ninfa's. It would be a better fit. BLVD Place is a pain to enter and park. I don't have data to back this, but looking from the outside in, BLVD Place is not as high traffic as Uptown Park.

A coffee shop will probably replace Belvedere, the club and lounge in Uptown Park.

I don't know the accuracy of this, but it may be a craft coffee shop in Houston that's expanding with another storefront.

From the updated site plan above and the Uptown Houston page on Eden's website, the J. Alexander's restaurant has a name.

The name is Merus Grill.

On the Uptown Houston page on Eden's website, it's listed as Merus Grill by J Alexander's Restaurant.

There is a website for Merus Grill that redirects to J. Alexander's Holdings.
http://www.merusgrill.com/

And there are trademark applications for Merus Grill dating back to 2015 .

I see the words/business The Rustic have been replaced with the words Lease Pending... (250)

It seems they have gutted out the whole space and it has been at a stand still for the past month. I am hoping this comes to fruition...I am excited about having this so close by!
 

 




The Rustic is still in play for Uptown Park Houston. It was removed from the site plan when I posted the updated site plan a month or so ago. But it was still shown on the site plan in the brochure. I think Eden Properties removed it because they didn't want it leaked to the public yet.

That is incredible news!!!

And I looked at the J Alexander website. I have to say I don't particularly like the name Merus Grill. Not sure why, I just don't...haha! (it actually sounds like it would be a mediterranean place for some reason) Hopefully they re-think the name...as i actually don't mind the other business names they have!

 




I'm in agreement with you. The name Merus Grill turns me off for some reason.

EDENS announced the fitness studio and another addition this morning to Uptown Park in Houston.

 

Ethan Allen, a national furniture purveyor with retail showrooms locally owned and operated by the Chesnick family for over 50 years, will relocate their existing Galleria-area Design Center to Uptown Park. The 11,595 square foot Design Center, opening this fall, will provide a unique, urban aesthetic designed with an array of vignettes to inspire clients plus accessible touchscreens and workstations where Ethan Allen designers partner with clients utilizing 3-D space planning.


Revolution Studio, a Houston-based boutique fitness studio offering yoga, cycle, and strength classes, will debut their fourth Houston-area location at Uptown Park. The 3,400 square-foot fitness sanctuary will feature 56 bikes in a stadium-style cycle room with an adjacent studio to house strength classes and heated Vinyasa yoga.

"Our clients have long asked us to open a studio closer to the uptown neighborhood," said Kim Syma, Owner of Revolution Studio. "Partnering with EDENS and bringing our high-energy cycle, creative Vinyasa yoga, and HIIT strength classes to Uptown Park will offer convenient access to over 75 classes a week at Houston's most sought-after fitness studio."
 





Also from the press release:


 

EDENS, a retail real estate owner, operator and developer with more than 125 retail places nationally, continues to redefine retail destinations in Houston with the addition of two new retail partners at the newly transformed Uptown Park— a vibrant collection of shops, restaurants, experiences and services located in the heart of uptown Houston.
 

Redevelopment of Uptown Park began in March of 2018 and included updating all building façades for a clean aesthetic, maximizing storefronts and brightening the exterior colors to modernize the consumer experience. Trellises now span the property and provide shaded walkways that connect the buildings for pedestrians. Parking has been reconfigured to accommodate outdoor conversation areas for guests to unwind and socialize, as well as improved walkability and safety. Colorful custom seating from local East Downtown fabricator RootLab and public Wi-Fi have also been installed throughout the property.
 

"We know Uptown Park serves as a hub for the best shopping and dining available in Houston and the redevelopment completion creates a vibrant and better-connected environment for our community," said Tom Kiler, Managing Director of EDENS. "We are thrilled to bring new concepts to Uptown and expand the neighborhood's options in our reenergized, pedestrian-friendly district."
 

Ethan Allen and Revolution Studio join a growing list of new retailers at Uptown Park. Rejuvenation, a Williams-Sonoma company offering classic American lighting, furniture, hardware and décor, opened the first Texas store location in November. Flower Child, an Arizona-based health-food restaurant by Fox Restaurant Concepts, opened in September. Uptown Sushi, an upscale local sushi restaurant open for over ten years, underwent a complete restaurant renovation and reopened in February. J. Alexander's, a Nashville-based restaurant known for their distinctive cuisine, will open their grill featuring a wide selection of American classics during the fourth quarter of this year. Mendocino Farms, a Southern California-based premium fast-casual concept, will open their chef-driven sandwich and salad restaurant later this summer.
 

"We will continue to bring new dining, fitness, entertainment and shopping concepts to our customers at Uptown Park past the initial phase of redevelopment. Paired with our commitment to enriching this great community, we are excited to keep creating stronger connections to the surrounding neighborhoods and adjacent open space," continued Kiler.
 

Current retailers, restaurants and services open at Uptown Park include Araya Chocolate, Bill Walker Clothier, Café Express, Carrie Ann, Ceron Hair Studio, Crave Cupcakes, Drybar, E*Trade, Elizabeth Anthony, Embajadores Fine Cigars, Etoile Cuisine et Bar, Flower Child, Francesca's, High Gloss, Lewis Jewelers, Linda's Couture Alterations, LOFT, Longoria Collection, Lucho Boutique, M Penner, McCormick & Schmick's, Potbelly Sandwich Works, Rejuvenation, Songkran Thai Kitchen, Starbucks Coffee, The Tasting Room, Top Drawer Lingerie, Uptown Park Dental, Utopia Plastic Surgery & Medspa.

I don't know the accuracy of this, but it may be a craft coffee shop in Houston that's expanding with another storefront.







 

From building permits, Giant Leap Coffee is the coffee shop that may be opening in place of Belvedere, the club and lounge in Uptown Park.

This is a craft coffee shop in Houston's East End.

In January, Giant Leap Coffee announced a second location on the way, but didn't say where.



From Instagram:

We’re really excited to announce that we’re working on a second location. More on that as things progress! Excited for another crazy year!

HBJ reporting that permits for the Rustic have been filed and the project is underway


 

The Rustic, which already has a downtown location, plans to open its second Houston location in Uptown Park. 
 

Records filed with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation show a project called The Rustic Uptown & The Copper Club is being built at 1121 Uptown Park Blvd., Building A. 

 

The filing lists a cost of $2.4 million for the project. Irving, Texas-based Idstudio4 is listed as the design firm of record, and national real estate firm Edens, which owns Uptown Park, is listed as the owner. 
 

Randy Barnett, studio director at Idstudio4, confirmed to commercial real estate publication CoStar that the project is underway. According to CoStar, the location will be two stories and 14,000 square feet and is replacing the Champps sports bar that closed in 2016.
 

A spokesperson for Dallas-based FreeRange Concepts, which owns The Rustic concept, said that the company has no comment at this time.

Good someone is reporting this. I wonder why are the news reporting on this now? 

There was no press release for this, but permits were filed for this last year and several months ago, as posted on this forum earlier this year. And The Rustic was on the site map in February and March. This is why I rely on HAIF to keep me up to date.

It is showing 310 (Belvedere) available still...I wonder how long it will take for them to even announce they are closing...

and lastly, that entire building B is almost all available...(except Mendocino Farms)...I am not too surprised that Miss Academy must be moving out as that was just an unusual and seemingly always vacant business...but am surprised that Ethan Allen didn't try to make that almost whole stand alone building theirs.

Can we have at least one of these spaces be a part of the world domination that is Voodoo Donuts?! 🍩🤩




I guess Eden Properties isn't ready to broadcast some of the spaces marked available have been leased or new tenants are in lease negotiations.

The spaces for Ethan Allen, The Rustic and a handful of others were marked available, but were filled as we know now (and was shared to HAIF before Eden sent press releases out). I think that's the same here.

Belvedere's space has been claimed (posted above for those who missed it). It's only a matter of time before Houston Chronicle or CultureMap get a hold of the news and run their obits for the club. Then Houston Business Journal, PaperCity and probably local news will run with it since whatever restaurant or bar news that's shared thousands of times (or shows interest on Reddit or HAIF) is stolen and reported on their station without providing their source.

Last week, the always late reporting Houston Business Journal "revealed" the name of the J. Alexander restaurant coming to Uptown Park.

As posted in this thread in April, the name of the restaurant is Merus Grill, but here's HBJ's "news" anyway:



Nashville, Tennessee-based J. Alexander’s Holding Inc. (NYSE: JAX) will open a new concept, Merus Grill, in Uptown Park this November, a spokesperson for the company confirmed. 

Permits filed with the city of Houston show that a restaurant called Merus Grill will be built at 1180 Uptown Park Blvd. In March, J. Alexander's Holding announced it planned to open a restaurant in Uptown Park in “late 2019,” but details about the particular concept were not revealed at the time.

From the updated site plan above and the Uptown Houston page on Eden's website, the J. Alexander's restaurant has a name.

The name is Merus Grill.

On the Uptown Houston page on Eden's website, it's listed as Merus Grill by J Alexander's Restaurant.

There is a website for Merus Grill that redirects to J. Alexander's Holdings.
http://www.merusgrill.com/

And there are trademark applications for Merus Grill dating back to 2015 .

https://www.houstonarchitecture.com/haif/topic/28426-uptown-park-renovations/?do=findComment&comment=590086







The website for Merus Grill no longer redirects to J. Alexander's Holdings. As of this week, the site for Merus Grill is up.

This is the restaurant opening in Uptown Park at 1180-1 Uptown Park Blvd.

There is also an opening date listed:  November 2019.

Great updates, Gene!


But is a similar business like Belvedere needed? A club seems out of place with the new changes.

A new tenant iis arriving soon to Uptown Park.


From Houston Chronicle's real estate transactions roundup today:

 

Jumper Maybach Fine Art will open in Uptown Park in October. The gallery is designed to provide an immersive experience with creations of contemporary artist, philanthropist and entrepreneur Ben Workman, also known as Jumper Maybach. The gallery, at 1131 Uptown Park Blvd., will offer fine art, home furnishings, apparel, accessories, gifts and other luxury items. In addition to a consistent art exhibition, the venue will offer rotating performance art and a series of events.
 

“We are constantly seeking unique new concepts to bring to Uptown Park that introduce culture, a bit of theater and unique experiences for our guests and the Houston community,” Tom Kiler, managing director of Edens, said in an announcement. “We are thrilled to bring Jumper Maybach Fine Art Gallery to our neighborhood and to expand the options found in our re-energized and evolving district.”

Morning! I edited to add more yesterday to my post above...

but wanted to add today that i drove by Cafe Express and they had moved out overnight and the place it empty!

Here comes Hugo Ortega!!!

 

and i guess the closing of Cafe Express was timed perfectly with the opening of Mendocino Farms as that opens next week!

 

 



That was quick. I didn't expect Cafe Express to close this soon. You are correct about the competition from Mendocino Farms.



And Eater Houston wrote about your post today:



Following weeks of rumors, chef Hugo Ortega and restaurateur Tracy Vaught have officially confirmed that they’re working on a new restaurant in Uptown Park.

The real-estate obsessives at HAIF were the first to notice that Ortega and Vaught had their eyes on the former Cafe Express space at 101 Uptown Park Boulevard, Suite 12. Now, a statement from Vaught confirms that they’re working on a restaurant for that location, but doesn’t provide a ton of additional detail. “Like with all our other concepts, we prefer to keep the idea close to our chests, as we like to have the ability to plan, develop and make changes at-will without being hindered by any previous announcements,” Vaught said. “So, yes, we did sign with Eden to go into Uptown Park. Our plans are still fluid and the opening is at least a year away. We have no further details at this time.”

Many have speculated that Ortega and Vaught’s new restaurant will be of the fast-casual variety, which is exciting news for folks who can’t afford to enjoy the James Beard Award winning chef’s cuisine at Xochi or Hugo’s. Perhaps he’ll focus on the crispy tlayudas at Xochi, or bring the beloved ceviches from Hugo’s into a fast-casual format.

Saw a commercial on channel 2 this morning for Ethan Allen saying they are open at the new Uptown Park location November 23rd!

(What in the heck will become of the space or that building/ old location?!...that was a huge space!)
