INTEREST GROWS IN NEW WOODLANDS AREA RETAIL & COMMERCE CENTER
Oak Ridge North’s Robinson Plaza project set to triple in size
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Conroe, TX, March 22, 2022 – With pre-construction leasing already at 75 percent of initial capacity, officials behind an innovative new retail and commerce complex have confirmed plans to triple the size of the overall project.
Construction on the first phase of Robinson Plaza, a 9,625-sq.ft. retail and business center located at the intersection of Robinson and Hanna Roads in Oak Ridge North, is nearing completion. Officials with developer MHW Real Estate have announced the expansion of the project to include two additional buildings of the same size – bringing the total available commercial space to nearly 30,000-sq.ft.
“Interest from the retail business community and service industry professionals has exceeded our initial expectations,” said Reese Brown, project manager for MHW Real Estate. “We anticipate releasing space for build-out to clients and breaking ground on the two new buildings by late summer.”
In addition to favorable economic conditions in The Woodlands area, Brown credits interest in the $4.5 million project to a favorable location and highly flexible design characteristics that include high ceilings and rollup, overhead doors in the rear for easy and convenient access.
“The site has good exposure and high traffic counts,” noted Brown. “This will only improve with completion of Oak Ridge North’s Robinson Road project.”
That project will realign the current dogleg Robinson Road into an unimpeded four-lane highway. This realignment will improve traffic and accessibility in the area, according to Jordan Buras, director of economic development for the city of Oak Ridge North.
“We are very excited to be working with MHW on this project,” she said. “New economic growth and improved traffic mobility will be a benefit to all concerned.”
While most space in Phase one of Robinson Plaza is under contract, officials with MHW say leasing for Phase II is underway. Domino’s Pizza, Snobz Salon and La Michoacana Ice Cream are among clients who have confirmed participation in phase one of the project.
“The design of Robinson Plaza is well suited to retail operations, service industry businesses and light manufacturing,” said Brown. “We are looking to anchor the site with a good quality casual restaurant with outdoor dining (pet friendly), to ensure a good mix of retail, commercial and service industry businesses.”
Robinson Plaza is a project of MHW Real Estate, a Conroe-based, commercial real estate investment and development company active throughout Montgomery, Harris and Walker Counties. For more information, call 281-651-4898 or visit www.mhwre.com.
