Here’s a look at renderings of redeveloper Braun Enterprises‘s plans for some of its holdings just east of the intersection of W. Gray St. with Dunlavy down the street from the River Oaks shopping Center. The view above shows preliminary plans for the makeover of 1705 W. Gray St., which has also been collecting various light building and demo permits issued for the past few months.
The drawings currently on Braun’s leasing fliers (dubbing the center the River Oaks Collection) shows a Panera Bread settled in at the corner once occupied by Zephyr Hair and Chateau Grooming. Other potential future businesses are depicted in a more minimalist manner; the words books and boutique appear on the second floor space previously housing Passport, Photo & Visa Service Center, while salon and restaurant fill out the ground floor offerings.
Below is a site plan of the center, including the freestanding former home of International Hair Salon & Nail Spa, on the right across a driveway:
The plan above shows W. Gray at the top of the frame, with a parking lot filling in the former home of now-deconstructed Miner-Dederick Construction, just south of the Gray-faced buildings pictured up top. Here’s another look toward the south from across and above W. Gray, showing the former nail salon dressed up on the left as a coffee shop, and depicting the electrical substation as a ghostly rectangular box in the background to the right:
The view from the southeast shows storefronts wrapping around the eastern side of the larger building, toward the parking area and another restaurant entrance in the back:
From back on the ground, here’s the rendered view looking north from the parking lot:
