Colvill Office Properties has been selected to handle office leasing for the first phase of Buffalo Heights, a mixed-use project underway at the corner of Washington Avenue and South Heights Boulevard.

The 37,000-square-foot office portion of Buffalo Height’s first phase will be called One Buffalo Heights, according to a press release. Michael Anderson and Connor Saxe of Colvill Office Properties will lead the leasing effort on behalf of Houston firms BKR Memorial II LLC, the project’s owner, and Midway Cos., the developer of Buffalo Heights.

Phase I of Buffalo Heights broke ground last year and is expected to open in 2019. In addition to the office portion, it will include an urban prototype 96,000-square-foot H-E-B, which will include multilevel parking as well as a walk-up coffee and food concept that'll offer to-go and casual dine-in service. Phase I of Buffalo Heights secured $66 million in construction financing from U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management.

There will also be 2,000 square feet of other retail space and a 230-unit multifamily portion, dubbed the St. Andrie. The St. Andrie will include a fitness and yoga studio with views of a resort-style pool, an open-air lounge with an outdoor fireplace and large TVs, a game room, a private dining room and a business lounge.

Houston-based Ziegler Cooper Architects is the design architect and the architect of record for the first phase of the development. Houston- and San Antonio-based Kudela & Weinheimer Landscape Architects is the landscape architect, and Houston-based Mayfield and Ragni Studio is the interior designer.

BKR Memorial II is a private company owned by the Russell and Glenda Gordy family.
