Fulshear Marketplace to bring boutique shopping and restaurant environment

Houston-based Capital Retail Properties, a full-service commercial brokerage and development firm, has purchased a prime, five-acre site on the northeast quadrant of FM 1093 and 359 in Fulshear for a 17,200-square-foot retail center and pad offerings.

Dubbed Fulshear Marketplace, the project is anticipated to break ground in fall 2019, and pre-leasing is now underway.

At the crossroads of the community, immediately across 1093 from a proposed H-E-B and the Fullbrook on Fulshear Creek residential community, Fulshear Marketplace will also be in close proximity to Fulshear High School and Cross Creek Ranch, encompassing nearly 6,000 home sites.

The Houston office of Gensler was selected to design the center, which takes full advantage of elevated placement on the hilly property, framed by mature trees.

According to Capital Retail Properties’ Connor Lynch, who is overseeing leasing with associate Jacob Weersing, “Our goal for Fulshear Marketplace is to introduce a boutique, upscale shopping, services and restaurant environment that meets the demands and expectations of this picturesque pocket of affluent and rapidly growing northwest Fort Bend County.”

Tasked to create a standout experience for the important intersection, Gensler has created a facade that harnesses variety and a stylistic use of materials to reference local architecture with a nod to the past. Special elements include unique brick patterns and corbeling; timber entry canopies and trellis; and vertical metal and plank paneling. The overall design offers a more contextual look and feel by breaking down the overall elements to fit the scale of the community. A corner anchor space proposed for a food and beverage tenant is expressed and enhanced with large partially covered patio feature.
