Two new tenants have been announced for the Boardwalk at Towne Lake, the mixed-use project being developed by Caldwell Companies near the corner of Barker Cypress and Tuckerton roads.

Sam’s Boat Gulf Coast Kitchen + Sports Bar will occupy a 6,100-square-foot end-cap restaurant space in the development overlooking the water, according to Stephen David, president and CEO of Aloha Restaurant Group, the parent company of Sam’s Boat.

“We’re planning a big outdoor deck for patrons to sit and eat,” he said. “We know the water feature is a big draw, so we’re taking advantage of that.”

The restaurant itself will be managed by franchisee Garry Sams, David said. He described the chain as food-driven—focused on seafood, Cajun, fresh Angus beef and po’boys.

“People know us for our New Orleans flavor,” David said. “We get especially good feedback on our spicy crawfish during crawfish season.”

David said the goal is to open the restaurant by Feb. 7, 2016—Super Bowl Sunday.

Officials with Caldwell Companies also confirmed that a Pure Barre fitness studio location will be coming to the development. The company, which has more than 200 locations nationwide, offers classes that provide a full body workout. The studio’s name references the ballet barre, which is used in classes for warm up exercises, body-weight resistance, stretching and lengthening exercises.

Broad plans for the Boardwalk include waterfront dining, retail and office space. Community Impact Newspapers has reported on previously announced Boardwalk tenants in the past, including Jaxton’s, World of Beer and MOD Pizza. More details on the timeframe for various aspects of the development can also be found on our website.



And from an earlier article from August



Several new retail concepts are expected to open by early next year in Cypress as part of the Boardwalk at Towne Lake project. Caldwell Companies is developing the mixed-use project that will feature waterfront dining, retail and office space near the corner of Barker Cypress and Tuckerton roads.

A handful of new tenants have signed leases in the upcoming development, including the following businesses:

  • Jaxton’s
  • Taisho
  • World of Beer
  • MOD Pizza
  • Orangetheory Fitness
  • Nails of America
  • Massage Heights
  • Land of a Thousand Hills
  • Texas Children’s Pediatrics

“I believe the [Cypress] area will embrace this project,” said Christie Amezquita, broker for Read King, which is handling retail leasing for the project. “A lot of residents drive to CityCentre and The Woodlands for dinner, but now we’ll have a great place for people in Cypress to congregate.”

Several of the tenants, such as Jaxton’s, will be the first of their kind in the area.

“[Jaxton’s] is an Italian restaurant that’s a new concept,” Amezquita said. “They’ll have homemade bread, pasta and crepes, and it will be their first location.”

Land of a Thousand Hills is a high-end coffee shop based in Atlanta, while Taisho is a hibachi sushi concept. Several tenants, such as World of Beer, MOD Pizza and Orangetheory, have locations in nearby areas like The Vintage or LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch.

One of the larger tenants, Texas Children’s Hospital has leased 10,000 square feet of the development for a pediatric office, Amezquita said.

Phase 1 of the development is about 65 percent leased with the first wave of tenants that have signed. However Amezquita said there are several letters of intent in the works for additional tenants, which will bring Phase 1 close to 95 percent leased.

Phase 2 of the project will include an estimated additional 30,000 or 40,000 square feet of retail and office space along with a boutique hotel.

When the project is complete, residents of Towne Lake will be able to ride their boats to the development, which will feature an area for boat slips. The Boardwalk at Towne Lake will feature a central green area as well, where there will be live music on the weekend. Caldwell Companies also plans to hire a full-time program director for the Boardwalk, Amezquita said.

A grand opening for the development is planned for the first weekend in March.

I may have said it elsewhere on here, but I'm really looking forward to Jaxton's and hoping it is a success. Cypress needs more people willing to try an upscale concept nearby. The owner of Jaxton's is the current maitre d at Tony's and has been for years, and one of the sous chefs there is going to be the executive chef of this new place. Anything could happen, who knows how the food will go over, or if there's good reason there's no truly upscale concepts in the Cypress area currently, but fingers crossed it's a hit and more follow.
