A new Montrose retail center designed by Ziegler Cooper Architects is close to breaking ground, but only after undergoing an overhaul to help it fit better within the neighborhood.

The Houston Business Journal reports that the 7,533-square-foot building planned for the corner of Mandell and West Alabama was originally much more intrusive. It has since been reduced in size to prevent congestion in an “already-dense” area and location close to The Menil and the Montrose Market H-E-B.

Property managers, Edge Realty Partners tell the Journal they are “looking for non-chain tenants, specifically a coffee shop and/or a chef-driven restaurant” to lease so construction can begin. The project is estimated for completion around this time next year.
