Natural Pawz, Lash Lounge and Super Cuts will have a presence in the 13,000 square-foot project, which will have two sides of storefronts, one facing Washington and the other facing the neighborhood. "We're holding out for a prime restaurant operator for the hard corner," NewQuest associate Nick Ramsey said in a release. The project is scheduled to finish construction in early 2020. 281-477-4300. www.newquestproperties.com
