Gold Key Partners and the Fulshear-Katy Area Chamber of Commerce held a Nov. 3 rope cutting and ground breaking ceremony for the Boardwalk Crossing development on the south side of Katy Mills at 25222 Kingsland Blvd. in Katy.
“It’s been a great deal that we’ve put a lot of work and effort into, and it’s very warming to my heart,” said Jeff Goldberg, co-owner and founder of Gold Key Partners during the ceremony.
The Fulshear-Katy Chamber hosts rope-cutting events rather than ribbon cuttings to go with their western marketing theme, said Don McCoy, president of the chamber.
The development, which features two buildings that will total almost 45,000 square feet when completed, will serve as home to Brett’s BBQ, 1776 Steakhouse, Scholars and Scoundrels Bar and Grill, vitamin store B-12 and Ranch Office Katy – a shared office space establishment.
Construction on the first phase is completed and 65% leased, according to a joint press release from the chamber and Gold Key Partners.
Anthony Petronella and Chad Craig, owners of Scholars and Scoundrels, said they’ll be moving from their current location at 1251 Pin Oak Road in Katy to the Phase 2 building in the new development once it is finished. Phase 2 lies just east of the first phase on Kingsland Boulevard. The new location will allow them to have more outdoor seating and a stage to offer a wider array of live music to guests, they said.
The pair offered another surprise at the groundbreaking, the future opening of another joint venture – 1776 Steakhouse – which they say will be a high-end steakhouse. They hope to open in the next year or so, depending on construction timelines, they said.
“From my experiences, I would say we’re roughly eight months to a year out,” Petronella said. “Once the building is actually done and they give it to us, we should be up and going in three months.”
Goldberg said the project had been in development for four years and he was grateful to have it fully underway in Katy.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Katy community. Providing an upscale experience for our tenants and their clients is what we strive for. The Boardwalk Crossing does just that,” Goldberg said.
