HOUSTON, May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- EDENS, a retail real estate owner, operator and developer with more than 125 retail places nationally, announced redevelopment plans and a new restaurant for Uptown Park— a vibrant collection of shops, restaurants and services located in the heart of uptown Houston.
"We know Uptown Park serves as a dynamic destination for the best shopping and dining available in the city," said Tom Kiler, Managing Director at EDENS.
