Hines, 2ML to Build 52-Acre Mixed-Use Project Adjacent to Texas Medical Center in Houston
HOUSTON — Hines and 2ML Real Estate Interests plan to co-develop Levit Green, a mixed-use development in Houston that will span 52 acres. Situated adjacent to Texas Medical Center, the project will feature life science research facilities, office space, residences, retail space, restaurants, outdoor amenities and green space. Both Hines and 2ML are based in Houston. Hines is a private owner and developer, and 2ML was formerly known as The Grocers Supply Co. but sold off its grocery wholesale business and rebranded in 2014 to focus on its real estate assets. Joe Levit, founder of Grocers Supply, was an initial landowner for a portion of the Levit Green site. The co-developers hope that the project will prove to be a hub for the growing life sciences sector in Houston. Located three miles outside of the city’s central business district, the site has immediate access to State Highway 288, METRORail, METRO bus, bike trails and the planned TMC3 medical research campus. No construction timeline was given.
