M-K-T roundup: Here is everything coming to the Heights development so far

Construction at the M-K-T development in the Heights was expected to hit a milestone at the end of August as most exterior work wraps up and interior tenant build-outs continue through the rest of 2020.

To date, the project has signed on close to 20 tenants including two pop-up concepts, according to Triten Real Estate Partners.

The M-K-T is adapting the former business park at 500 N. Shepherd Drive, converting five buildings into a 200,000-square-foot, pedestrian-friendly retail mall and office park.

Some office tenants could begin moving later this year, with retail and restaurants possibly able to open late 2020 or early 2021.

Tenants confirmed for M-K-T


Food & beverage: da Gama Canteen, an Indian cafe and wine bar; the paleo, ketogenic and plant-based meal prep kitchen Elite F'ing Meals; the Heights Ice House; Homestead Kitchen & Bar, an all-day breakfast cafe; Honeychild’s Sweet Creams, a locally crafted frozen custard stand popular at farmers markets; and Mendocino Farms, an expanding Los Angeles-based sandwich and salad shop.

Services: Treadwell, a salon and wellness studio for men; Huemn, a wellness clinic offering cryotherapy and other services; and the Heights-based and locally owned Union Studio Yoga.

Retail shops: Pasadena-based women's clothing boutique Anjouil’s; Houston jewelry boutique Burdlife and a Pedego Electric Bikes shop.

Popups: Common Assembly, a women's clothing brand focused on ethical and eco-conscious manufacturing; and June & Co., a women's clothing store based in Rice Village.

Office tenants: accounting firm Miller Grossbard Advisors; private oil and gas firm XCL Resources; Houston-based secure file sharing software company Smart Vault; and marketing agency Decode Digital.
