With the revitalization, project architect Thomas De Froy plans to balance the original charm of the shopping center with modern facade and landscaping updates, according to the news release. Township Square is located at the intersection of Hwy. 6 and FM 1092.
Planned improvements include softening the existing red brick, adding canvas awnings and metal canopies, installing new storefront glass, adding a mural to the clock tower, developing sign criteria, expanding outdoor dining areas, upgrading landscaping and improving pedestrian connectivity between buildings.
“We really want to allow tenants to showcase their identity. Customers, and even employees, are drawn to businesses that can differentiate themselves, and we want to see tenants express their creativity and succeed,” project broker and developer Steven Stone said in the release.
Existing tenants will remain open during the work, and KM Realty is working to recruit restaurants and retailers to vacant spaces in the shopping center.
While design work on the redesign is still underway, construction is expected to begin this fall and be completed in early 2022, according to the release.
“We’ve received great feedback from our tenants,” Stone said in the release. “This is more of a gathering place than your standard shopping center, and we really expect the community to really embrace the changes.”
