Highly Anticipated River Oaks District Opens to Fanfare
River Oaks District, Houston’s highly anticipated open-air shopping, dining, and entertainment haven, opened in October. Developed by the award-winning firm Oliver McMillan, River Oaks District features world-class brands with iconic storefronts, upscale restaurants, luxury entertainment, and lush, tree-lined walkable streets.
The destination’s grand opening celebration included remarks from Oliver McMillan CEO Dene Oliver, Houston City Council member David Robinson, and an invitation from Lynn Wyatt for all to visit Houston’s new premier shopping place. Following the event, guests were invited to stroll the 14-acre district and to visit the boutiques that are currently open—Brunello Cucinelli, Canali, Cartier, Chopard, Dior, Etro, Giuseppe Zanotti, INTERMIX, Moncler, Robert Cavalli, Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, and Vince.
Oliver McMillan has since announced additional boutiques and restaurants that will soon open their doors in the district, including Anne Fontaine, Dolce & Gabbana, L’Occitane, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Les Copains, and more.
“We’ve placed an emphasis on bringing together a collection of brands and restaurants that not only complement River Oaks District, but the city as well,” said Colin Moussa, director of marketing for River Oaks District. “We look forward to sharing this special place with guests now that we’re open.” More info: riveroaksdistrict.com.
