There sure has been a lot of activity in the past few months here in Highland Village: the former Tootsie’s building is having a little taken off the top and being split in two for new J. Crew and Anthropologie stores coming this spring, though these recent photos of the building at 4045 Westheimer suggest that Anthropologie — or at least that mauve and understated storefront — is further along. But then J. Crew has farther to go: Anthropologie’s moving only across the street from its 4066 Westheimer store (shown at right).
Tootsie’s was the last tenant to occupy this building, departing about 2 years ago to open a Kirby store in West Ave — though Galleria dumpling proprietor Gigi Huang did throw a one-night pop-up party here in November during Houston Fashion Week.
