Katy Grand, another Asian-focused food development, is slated to begin construction this spring on the north side of I-10 at Grand Parkway.
Not to be confused with nearby Katy Asian Town, the development at 23330 Grand Circle Boulevard just announced it’ll be home to 85°C Bakery, Kura Revolving Sushi Bar, and six or seven more food-focused tenants when the property is ready for business in late 2018.
The developer, NewQuest Properties, is responsible for another Asian-food destination in Dallas’ north suburbs, Carrollton Town Center, which is anchored by a 99 Ranch Market, a 85° C Bakery, and will serve as a template for Katy Grand.
“We’re working with similar tenants for Katy, but going after really strong brands that we don’t have in Texas yet,” Heather Nguyen, development partner on the project, told Eater. “There are some exciting tenants that don’t have an existing location in Texas, and they’re coming to Katy for their first.”
Katy Grand’s 85°C Bakery, a Taiwanese coffee shop and bakery with over 1,000 locations world-wide (focused state-side in Texas, California, and Washington), will be rolling out its first drive-through in Katy, according to Nguyen.
Kura Revolving Sushi Bar, a national chain with several locations in Houston, will be bringing its additive-free fare to the Katy development.
Nguyen is also excited about the Japanese bookstore, Kinokuniya, coming to the development for its first Houston location. The brand already operates an outpost in Carrollton, and while it doesn’t serve food or beverages, anime-lovers can grab some good reads while chowing down on sushi next door.
