A redevelopment effort is completely reimagining a 1980s-era strip shopping center on Pinemont Drive, bridging Garden Oaks, Oak Forest and Acres Homes. Plans for The Common are now complete, and the remodel is anticipated to begin this month for the 38,000-square-foot Opportunity Zone project spanning 2.98 acres at 1102 Pinemont Dr. near Ella Boulevard.
A key aspect of the redevelopment is the creation of a namesake central common, incorporating both green space and an activated plaza. The Common has been conceived by Houston’s Schooley Design with sustainability in mind – reusing rather than demolishing, creatively repurposing elements rather than discarding when possible, integrating earthbound materials and incorporating solar panels to power exterior lighting plus water catchment tanks for landscape irrigation.
Houston-based Gulf Coast Commercial Group will manage the property with company vice president Danny Miller overseeing leasing.
