We completed the schematic design for the store which will open before thanksgiving and HEB’s team took it through construction documents. The 70,000 sf store is located in the Montrose neighborhood near the Menil Collection. The design fits into the chic surroundings while preserving the large live oak trees on site. Photos of the store can be found here. Experience the store and shop at 1716 West Alabama Street Houston, TX. Click to Read More
