Fresh-faced skincare studio and Italian luxe leather furniture brand open first Houston stores in Uptown Park
A group of familiar local, regional, and international brands are coming to Uptown Park — some with their first Houston and even Texas presences.
Four new tenants will soon set up shop at Uptown Park, according to owner/operator EDENS, the national real estate firm. The new spots are:
The sleek, modern Italian luxury furniture brand. The Italian designer and manufacturer's 6,393-square-foot showroom in Uptown Park marks the first free-standing store location in Houston (locals will recognize the brand in select stores). Design-conscious shoppers can expect the stylish, functional, and minimalist craftsmanship that has made the company a favorite with interior professionals and choosy home designers.
The Arizona-based studio has grown to national prominence with its fresh-faced aim to make quality skincare accessible to all. Its 2,261-square-foot space marks Texas outpost, one that will offer personalized skincare through customized treatments, expert advice, and curated product recommendations, per press materials.
A favorite among local healthy eaters, the brand will open a 2,908-square-foot space, making seven locations for the national chain that serves healthy food quickly and at scale, per its mission. Diners can look for signature salads and bowls, seasonal menu offerings, and — always a favorite — outdoor seating.
A popular health-food spot in Austin serving old-pressed juices, superfood smoothies, and generally good vibes, JuiceLand will open an intimate, 700-square-foot destination for those seeking wellness and systemic health through plant-based diets. The store already boasts four other Houston locations.
“The evolution of Uptown Park over the last five years has solidified its position as a bustling hub for the city’s most sought-after dining and shopping,” said Tom Kiler, managing director of EDENS, in a statement. “We are thrilled to add more first-to-market concepts to Uptown Houston and help expand the footprint of brands already within the city.”
As those who frequent the area are aware, Uptown Park offers a range of high-end and upscale entertainment, restaurants, retail, and services, including Crave Cupcakes, Drybar, Elizabeth Anthony, Etoile Cuisine et Bar, Flower Child, High Gloss, Longoria Collection, M Penner, Postino Wine Cafe, Rejuvenation, Songkran Thai Kitchen, The Museum For Black Girls, The Rustic, Top Drawer Lingerie, Uptown Sushi, URBE, Van Leeuwen, and more.
Now more walkable and user-centric, Uptown Park hosts signature events such as farmer’s markets, seasonal markets, yoga classes hosted by onsite YogaSix, and more.
“The addition of these four concepts and others opening this year at Uptown Park promises our guests the most in-demand brands and experiences,” said Michael Hale, senior vice president of leasing at EDENS, in a statement. “Paired with the unique events our team hosts throughout the year, Uptown Park continues to enrich our neighborhood and enhance the surrounding community.”
