Tenants will begin moving into the first office building in Generation Park’s lifestyle district Redemption Square this month. Announced tenants at the 86,523-square-foot, Class A office building include Apache Industrial Services, Inc. and McCord Development, McCord Development President Ryan McCord said. McCord Development is the developer of Generation Park, a 4,000-acre mixed-use project near Summerwood.
The bottom floor of the building, which is located at 250 Assay St., has a 7,677-square-foot Jewel Box space for an upscale restaurant. The Jewel Box restaurant site also has 2,000 square feet of patio space, said Ian Adler, director of marketing for McCord Development.
“Everyone wants nice, upscale sit-down restaurants of varying varieties,” Adler said. “And we’ve taken the community’s feedback to heart, and that’s who we are chasing for the development.”
More elements of Redemption Square will begin construction before the end of 2017, including a Courtyard Marriott, a wrap-style 250-unit apartment complex often seen in downtown Houston and four restaurants, McCord said.
Generation Park is expected to feature a variety of uses, such as Class A office space, retail, industrial, hospitality and higher education. It is set to bring numerous employment opportunities to the Lake Houston area after major companies like TechnipFMC relocated their headquarters to the development in 2016.
“A lot of people are driving to The Woodlands, they’re driving downtown … we’re going to try to fix that—having a center of activity where everyone can go,” Adler said. “No matter what you want to do, there’s going to be something to do there. We plan to bring the community together.”
