The Woodlands, Texas
Located at the intersection of I-45 and Rayford Road – the first exit north of Houston that serves The Woodlands and the new Exxon campus, this mixed-use project is significant to the area’s development. The 3.8-acre master-planned site comprises a 127,000-s.f. office building, a 700-car parking garage,17,000 s.f. of retail, a 13,000-s.f. entertainment venue, restaurant and a 140-key hotel. The small, urban-scaled site and visibility provide the opportunity for creating a destination location. Seamless mixing of the seven restaurants, upscale food market, hotel, entertainment venue and office offers a 24-hour environment. The project has two levels of plazas tied together with overlooks, stairs and escalators. A shade structure, lushly landscaped outdoor seating and water features create an oasis from suburban traffic. The center will generate programs, concerts and social activities, with the central entertainment venue serving as a focal point for events and create energy and activity within the development.
