Houston real estate investor and developer Ancorian is adding Healthcare to its project portfolio mix. Construction is underway on the River Oaks Surgical Center, a 130,000 s.f. mixed-use facility inside the Houston loop on Westheimer, at the southern edge of the tony River Oaks neighborhood. Gensler designed the contemporary glass curtain wall building. The project includes 55,000 s.f. of rentable space, with medical offices and a surgery center on the two upper floors, complementary retail services at street level, and three floors of parking integrated in between. Burton Construction is the general contractor.
The development is scheduled to open in 2020. Ancorian tapped PRISM to develop renderings for the leasing package and for public relations. The River Oaks Surgical Center is 70% pre-leased, and the anchor tenant is Upper Kirby Surgery Center, a partnership of prominent area specialists. The Ancorian name continues to proliferate around Houston; they are the developer behind the successful East Village project in EaDo.
