Concept Neighborhood is a real estate investment, development and management company focused on innovative, inclusive multifamily, retail and maker space opportunities in connected urban corridors.
Our team has decades of experience in commercial real estate investment, development, property management and retail entrepreneurship.
In car-oriented American cities, deprived of authentic urbanism, people are eager to inhabit dense, walkable neighborhoods where a sense of community runs deep and well-designed digs are within financial reach. Breaking from the traditional mixed-use paradigm, we’re focused on clustering neighborhood-scale properties around lifestyle-enhancing public infrastructure including transit, trails, bike lanes and parks.
We cluster and manage mixed-use properties in walkable urban neighborhoods to support authentic population density, foster community and enhance value.
And we recognize that the ongoing realization of that value lies in the people and businesses that call our projects home, which is why we’re equally committed to investment, development and management.
Dating all the way back to the 18th and 19th centuries, the East End of Houston has been a cultural melting pot of immigrants and home to both significant industrial activity and housing stock. Proximity to Houston’s ship channel spurred the creation of warehouses, and homes were built to meet the needs of an influx of workers.
Today, the neighborhood is returning to its roots, with many entrepreneurs, artists and makers converting turn of the century warehouses into coworking spaces, coffee roasteries and design labs. We’re focused on meeting the housing and retail needs of this neighborhood and those attracted to it, while preserving the rich cultural fabric of the neighborhood through place-based strategies.
