In recent years, the U.S. has seen an increase in "pedestrian-friendly" mixed-use developments where people live, work, eat and shop. Several are planned for Houston, including at Kirby and Westheimer; downtown; Memorial City; and the former Central Ford site on Westheimer.
"Several are on the drawing board, but this could be one of the first ones out of the gate," said Kent Dussair, president of CDS Market Research, a real estate market consulting firm in Houston, referring to the proposed mixed-use projects.
Major mixed-use urban projects like BLVD Place are being built in competing cities across the country, Dussair said. "Dallas, for example, is ahead of us. We're anxious to see a quality development like this in Houston," he said.
