The Grid is poised to transform Fort Bend County's landscape into a thriving innovation hub. With its mixed-use concept, the development is meant to connect the area's legacy of innovation to a prosperous future.

Spanning 192 acres of Fort Bend County's Innovation Corridor, The Grid is expected to drive economic growth and attract a diverse range of businesses. Fort Bend County's innovators have already earned 14,000 patents between 1995 and 2015, establishing the region as a hotbed of ingenuity, according to The Grid’s website.

The project's phases 1 and 2 were successfully completed, and the initial opening was celebrated in fall 2019. At the core of the project lies the Grid Center, which includes a vibrant public green area capable of accommodating concerts, festivals and outdoor movie screenings.

The vision for The Grid involves the creation of inviting public spaces and walkable streets, seamlessly connecting shops, restaurants, offices, hotels, and urban residences. This blend of elements aims to make The Grid a coveted destination for residents and visitors.

The Grid has intentions to one day include a variety of features, including more than 500,000 square feet of office space, luxury apartments, cinema space, golf entertainment, fitness facilities, farmers markets, rooftop patios and more.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has issued permits for two notable establishments: Hopdoddy Burger Bar and Snooze an A.M. Eatery, according to the website.

The additions of Snooze, Hopdoddy and potentially Tiff's Treats showcase the development's commitment to curating a young and enticing culinary landscape.

These establishments will occupy a newly constructed building on the former Texas Instruments campus, joining tenants such as Whiskey Cake, Pluckers Wing Bar, and In-N-Out Burger. The grid aims to have over 350,000 square feet of retail shops upon completion, according to the website.

With its innovative approach to repurposing a historic area, The Grid is meant to create an abundance of new business opportunities.
