HEB Offers Tour to Neighbors in Advance of July 26 Opening

HEB hosted a tour of the new store at Mueller to representatives of the 16 nearby neighborhoods on June 20. The store is located on the corner of Berkman and 51st,and is part of the Market District.  It is slated to open on July 26.

The project is a LEED-certified design and has lots of impressive energy and water saving elements. It’s also made a big effort to integrate with the surrounding community. They added a restaurant called Café Mueller in response to feedback, then a big outdoor patio, and are now working on adding a playscape. There are plans for regular live music, and they have a community room inside their office space which will be available for neighborhood events by reservation and free of charge.

Our overall impression was very good. A favorite feature was all the natural light in the building, and the news that they’ll have an actual falconer on staff to work on keeping grackles away(!). It will be useful having three large grocery stores to choose from, in addition to the smaller stores and farmer’s markets in Cherrywood and nearby.

HEB seems to be genuinely interested in partnering with neighborhoods, and there should be opportunities for them to sponsor neighborhood events or even host some. We are looking forward to the opening next month and seeing how the store is integrated into the neighborhood.HEB Mueller tour
