The Montrose Collective, a new mixed-use project, has broken ground and is slated for a late 2021 completion, the development company Radom Capital announced Feb. 10.

Spanning four buildings on Lower Westheimer, the development will offer 100,000 square feet of office space, more than 50,000 square feet of retail and a new location for the Freed-Montrose Neighborhood Library. A parking structure will be located behind the development as well.

The retail space will support six restaurants and as many as 15 other tenants, according to a news release.

Michael Hsu Office of Architecture designed the project. The firm was also involved in the design of Uchi and the interior design enhancements at Katz's, two restaurants flanking the new development.

“Montrose has always been Houston’s epicenter for art, the birthplace of our cafe and counter-culture, and one of our most open and complete neighborhoods," managing principal Steve Radom said in a release. “We envisioned Montrose Collective as a public space that respects the existing context, weaving together community gathering spaces and porous buildings that welcome neighbors and guests.”


Landscape architects with Office of James Burnett are contributing to the public spaces of the project with decorative sidewalk features, a green wall and custom greenery.

According to state filings for the project in November, construction costs are estimated around $38.9 million.
