One of the area’s bustling shopping centers is getting a facelift.
Lionstone Investments announced Oct. 14 that it has begun a multi-phase renovation of Sugar Land Town Square in partnership with the city. Sugar Land-based Planned Community Developers and Dallas-based Rebees, which co-manage the mixed-use retail center, are also partnering on the endeavor.
“The vision guiding the evolution of Sugar Land Town Square is to create a lively, walkable village filled with unique merchants, delightful surprises, outdoor communal areas, and authentic expressions of local culture,” Matt Ragan of Rebees said in a news release. “Sugar Land Town Square is the cultural and urban center of the City of Sugar Land, and it will soon honor this role by becoming as vibrant and future-leaning as the city itself.”
Scheduled for completion by the middle of 2021, the project’s first phase is underway and will include new landscaping as well as revamped outdoor social spaces that will accommodate social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. There will also be new signage on storefronts as well as new tenants moving in that will join the recently-opened Mattison Avenue Salon & Spa and State Fare Kitchen.
According to the news release, the upgrades will “enrich the walking environment and add an array of exciting new merchants designed to thrive in the next era of retail” in the nearly 800,000 square-foot retail center.
“This redesign will create dynamic and flexible spaces for a diversity of uses and users to interact safely,” Lionstone COO Tom Paterson said.
