Home to more than 175 stores, Katy Mills has a reputation for providing a dynamic mix of sought-after brands, in addition to family-friendly dining and entertainment. With the transformation, Katy Mills will offer an enhanced shopping experience for the entire family.
A Refined Shopping Experience
“Katy Mills’ renovation is a highly-anticipated project and an investment in the local market,” said James Ross, general manager for Katy Mills. “These improvements are designed with our shoppers and retailers in mind, and we look forward to sharing this new and refined shopping experience with the community.”
"To me, the renovation of Katy Mills shows the community that the City of Katy and Simon Property group are committed to this community. Katy Mills remains the economic engine for the City of Katy and now it is time for both groups to reinvest in this center. I am proud to have been the chief negotiator of the Economic Development Agreement that is bringing this project to fruition. Congratulations to Katy Mills and the City of Katy on this great announcement," says Don Massey, former general manager at Katy Mills.
Scheduled to begin in March, work will be substantially complete by holiday 2018. The updates will create a brighter, more inviting atmosphere inside the center.
