New retail, restaurant and office spaces are coming to the East Shore community in The Woodlands.


Wulfe & Co., a Houston-based development company that offers both commercial and real estate services, is set to develop East Shore Place, the 58,000-square-foot development.


Construction will start this spring on the upcoming two-story development, and space is expected to be available to tenants by the fall, said Nancy Stanley, an executive assistant for Wulfe & Co.


The development will be constructed at the northwest corner of Grogan’s Mill Road and East Shore Drive in The Woodlands.


“The development will have two stories of retail and office space, with offices on the top level and retail space on the bottom level,” Stanley said. “A four-story parking garage for the development has also already been finished with construction.”


Stanley said more than half of the space will be used for retail and a two-story restaurant space, and the remainder will be used for second-level Class A office space.


The new development is expected to bring more commercial and retail options to residents in the East Shore area and also bring in some of Town Center’s existing customers and traffic.


“The best thing [about building] right there in that area is that there isn’t very much retail or restaurant options in East Shore as of right now,” Stanley said. “[The development] is close to both East Shore and the Panther Creek Village area and also close enough to Town Center to draw people in from that area. It’s also far enough from Town Center to not have as much traffic as that area has right now.”


Wulfe & Co. has also opened Blvd Place Phase 2 in the Galleria area and is working with Houston-based Griffin Partners to add new retail, restaurant and entertainment venues around the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.


Mike Bass, vice chairman of The Woodlands Township board of directors, said East Shore Place is just the beginning for upcoming developments in the next few years in The Woodlands area as the population continues to grow.


“The area around Town Center is going to continue to keep experiencing growth in both residential and commercial developments,” Bass said. “It’s a cluster, and the whole area in and around The Woodlands is growing. Over the next five years there are going to be a lot of new developments in both Town Center and also in Hughes Landing.”
