The soon-to-be-opened Lake Woodlands Crossing shopping center secured its latest tenant last week.
REACH Stretch Studio is the latest newcomer to The Woodlands’s growing health and wellness scene.
With REACH committed, the shopping center is now 78 percent leased, said Rip Reynolds, the Howard Hughes Corporation’s vice president of leasing and commercial land.
“With the addition of REACH, we can promote healthy lifestyles and provide ample opportunities for the residents,” Reynolds said. “Health and wellness is an emerging category in retail and this specific type of wellness opportunity is new in the community.”
The business, which has two other franchised locations in Katy and the Houston suburb of Memorial, will focus on providing specialized stretch therapy that assists clients with pain management, physical therapy issues, injury prevention, pain management and relaxation.
REACH Stretch Studios joins Ulta Beauty, Total Wine & More, Main Squeeze Juice Company, Beaux Toes and Stickhouse as tenants at the more than 60,000 square foot strip at the northeast intersection of Grogan’s Mill Road and Lake Woodlands Drive.
The Lake Woodlands Crossing center is the last undeveloped parcel of land in the commercial corridor between Interstate 45 and The Woodlands Mall — the completing of the space and the proximity to other strip mall centers will provide consumers and residents with varied shopping options compared to the Mall and Town Center further in, Reynolds added.
“It can basically complete the area all the way to (I-45),” Reynolds said. “You can cross-shop and get groceries from H-E-B then go to Ulta for beauty supplies — you can get everything done at once.”
The space is set to host a 25,000 square foot anchor business and 10,000 square foot junior anchor business, Reynolds said.
The first tenant is set to open in September, but Reynolds declined to specify which business it would be. The next tenant will open in October.
“We’re excited to have (REACH) come in there, Reynolds said. “We’ve always enjoyed bringing new concepts, retailers and restaurants in.”
