GBT purchases plot for Houston center


GBT Realty purchased 11.7 acres of land in Kemah, Texas, with plans to build a 79,000-sq.-ft. shopping center, reported mySA, a San Antonio news site. Purchase price was $2.1 million.

According to GBT, the center is 92% leased. Committed tenants include Petco, Marshalls, Ross Dress for Less, and Ulta.

Located south of Houston on Trinity Bay, Kemah has just 2,000 residents, but draws tourists with a boardwalk and entertainment district containing carnival rides, restaurants, and shops.

"It was an easy decision to pursue a shopping center in this community that has become a regional tourist destination in part due to the popularity of the entertainment district," said Jeff Pape, managing director of the shopping center division at GBT.
