ONE OF HOUSTON’S hottest mixed-use developments, Montrose Collective, continues to add to its roster of diverse tenants.


Veteran restaurateur Grant Cooper opens his latest, Graffiti Raw, at Montrose Collective this month; the “coastal cool” raw bar will offer fire-grilled proteins, fresh ceviche, crudos and a full cocktail menu. In addition, the Austin-based “better-for-you” cafe, Picnik, is expected to open this spring, offering keto, paleo, vegetarian and gluten-free options on an expansive patio.

Ireland-based med spa Sisu — with Botox, fillers and fat-reduction treatments — opens in February, while later in the year, Montrose Collective will add New York’s popular Glosslab nail salon as well as Skin Laundry, a laser-facials spa. And Studio BE, a yoga and pilates studio now open in the Heights, has announced its second studio will open at the development in 2023.

“With the opening of new hot spots, Montrose Collective is poised for continued growth throughout 2023 and beyond,” says Barton Kelly, Principal at Radom Capital, in a statement. “We are redefining spaces where our visitors not only shop but dine, mingle and participate in thoughtful activities.”

Each month, visitors can join in Sip and Strolls wine nights, Sunday Savasana donation-based yoga classes, and “makers markets” on the tree-lined Paseo. This spring, the Plant Project will pop up on the Paseo, with plant-potting workshops with other local businesses like Ixchel Market. Ixchel specializes in hand-crafted Latin American goods, vintage finds and a space to build culture and community.

Already home to restaurants like Marmo, as well as boutique shopping and office space, the development is 97 percent leased, with plans to reach full occupancy by the end of 2023.
