Radom Capital is embarking on another transformative project in Houston’s Montrose neighborhood.

The Houston-based firm aims to redevelop the former Tower Theatre and three neighboring buildings along Westheimer Road into a mix of retailers, restaurants and office space, the Houston Chronicle reported

Construction of the 35,000-square-foot project, dubbed 1111 Westheimer, is slated to begin this summer and be completed in 2025.

The historic theater building, known for its art deco sign, will retain its iconic features in Radom’s vision. Prospective tenants primarily comprise restaurants, aligning with the company’s strategy to enhance the area’s culinary offerings.

It’s Radom’s second major undertaking in Montrose, which is about three miles west of downtown. In 2021, the firm delivered Montrose Collective, a mixed-use project with boutique office space, dining and retail. Montrose Collective is almost leased, and Radom aims to redirect any overflow of demand from that project toward 1111 Westheimer.

The development site is home to Kung Fu Tea, Adam and Eve, Mala Sichuan Bistro and Copy.com. Tower Theatre, built in 1936, housed Acme Oyster House until it closed in December.

Plans for 1111 Westheimer also call for dividing the 10,000-square-foot Copy.com building into five spaces, which has already received leasing commitment from yoga and pilates studios.  While the Adam and Eve store is expected to close, discussions are underway to replace it with a restaurant. Mala Sichuan Bistro is likely to remain, and the fate of Kung Fu Tea remains uncertain.
