JLL negotiates sale of Baytown Plaza in Houston, Texas 

HOUSTON, December 8, 2015 – On behalf of Gulf Coast Commercial Group, JLL Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has negotiated the sale of Baytown Plaza, a 106,779-square-foot shopping center situated on 12.77 acres, located at 6560 Garth Road in Baytown, Texas.  An undisclosed buyer purchased the property.

Managing Director George Cushing, Senior Vice President Wendy Vandeventer and Associate Meaghan Gallacher led the JLL team on the transaction. 

“Baytown Plaza offers investment security from a line-up heavily weighted with proven national tenants,” said Cushing. 

Baytown Plaza is shadow anchored by Kohl’s Department Store and additional well-known tenants include Pier 1 Imports, Michaels, Boot Barn, Kirkland’s Home and Shoe Carnival.  Currently the property is 98 percent leased. 

Cushing continues, “Several of the center’s key tenants have a years-long occupancy and rental history that speaks to the viability of the location and development.”

The shopping center is located east of Garth Road at Independence Boulevard and approximately 25 miles from Houston’s Central Business District.
