HOUSTON—BURDLIFE jewelry, designed and handmade by Natasha Dadwani in her Heights apartment studio, plans to open its first retail location in 1,193 square feet of retail space in M-K-T, an urban redevelopment project located at North Shepherd and 6th Street in the Heights.
Brett Levinson with Weitzman handled negotiations for the concept. Brittney Freed, Linda Rubiola, and Christie Amezquita with Shop Companies represented the landlord.
BURDLIFE operates with a vision to provide the best-quality jewelry and statement pieces, and the core value of intentional high quality craftsmanship is at the forefront of every design. BURDLIFE was established in 2015 and, after achieving success with online sale and wholesale accounts including Anthropologie, decided to open its first retail store at M-K-T in the Heights.
M-K-T, now under way, is transforming more than 200,000 square feet of former industrial buildings into a high-end retail, restaurant and office project. Houston-based Radom Capital and Triten Real Estate Partners are directing the redevelopment, which is set for completion in 2020. The walkable, architecturally significant project will feature an urban boardwalk and park space in addition to retail and office space.
