Demolition at the former site of Smith & Wollensky in Highland Village, 4007 Westheimer Road, began earlier this month, almost two years after the restaurant closed.

The location is slated for construction of a four-story, 40,000 square foot building, according to state filings in March. Construction cost was estimated at $5.8 million with an eight-month project timeline.

Part of the building is expected to house a Lululemon "experiential store" concept. A spokesperson for the brand said there was no news to share on the location's opening plans. A job posting earlier this year sought applicants for a general manager for the new store model.

Lululemon opened the first iteration of the expanded store concept in Chicago in July 2019, offering yoga studios, a juice bar and cafe, and gathering spaces, in addition to its apparel.
