Jones Lang LaSalle Closes Sale of Houston Shopping Center

Houston Metro considered one of the strongest in the nation

HOUSTON, Oct. 2, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has closed the sale of Montgomery Plaza on behalf of Houston-based Weingarten Realty Investors. The 304,867 square-foot shopping center, located in Conroe, TX was purchased by American National Insurance Company.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Managing Director George Cushing and Vice President Wendy Vandeventer led the team on this transaction.

“This property delivers a secure income stream, with rents well below the national average,” said Cushing. ”This is a major factor why the shopping center stands 95 percent leased with reputable national and regional credit tenants and why it was so appealing to ANICO.”

“The greater Houston area is an extremely strong market,” added Vandeventer. “Montgomery Plaza is located by other retailers, major expressways and residential facilities which brings in quite a bit of traffic.”

The plaza hosts retailers including Academy Sports & Outdoors, Big Lots, Conn’s Appliances, 99 Cents Only and Petco. In addition to the inline space, there are two multi-tenant pads and two single-tenant pads.
