Houston's Historic East End Transformation Expands with Mixed-Use Development Called the Mill

Houston's Historic East End Transformation Expands with Mixed-Use Development Called the Mill

Houston's East End is peppered with fields between former industrial brick buildings, bungalows, recently remodeled parks, farmers markets and new condominiums, but a 6-acre lot stands out. Behind purple fencing, the parcel marks two construction trends spreading across the country: adaptive reuse of buildings and the use of timber in commercial projects. The site at the moment houses a pop-up drive-in movie theater, but Houston developer Triten Real Estate Partners plans to turn the lot into a mixed-use project that is expected to be a critical part of the East End's ongoing transformation. Called the Mill after a former 1890s-era industrial lumber mill on the site, Triten's project is expected to be one of Houston's first cross-laminated timber office projects, in addition to restaurant and retail space and a 340-unit apartment complex.
