Houston -- Wulfe & Co., managing partner of Blvd Place, said that construction has started on Phase II of the mixed-use development located in The Uptown District of Houston.

Blvd Place will contain retail, office and residential components in an urban environment. This phase of the project is 60% pre-leased and will contain approximately 211,000 sq. ft. of upscale retail, restaurant and office space. The retail space will be anchored by a 48,500-sq.-ft.

Phase I of Blvd Place was completed in 2009 with a four-level, 70,000-sq.-ft. retail/office building, which features Restaurant RDG+Bar Annie, Philippe Restaurant, Hermes and Herman Miller. In May, the Apache Corp. acquired 6.4 acres in Blvd Place for its Houston headquarters.
