HOUSTON, Jun. 22, 2023 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of The Plaza at Galveston Island, a 151,905-square-foot neighborhood retail center located in Galveston, Texas, which is just 50 miles outside of Houston.

JLL worked on behalf of the seller, Harold A. Clark & Co., and Main Street acquired the asset.

Built in 1970, the 84.5-percent-occupied center is leased to a highly recognizable tenant mix of local, regional and national retailers. Notable tenants include Dollar Tree, Ross, Five Below, Shoe Dept. Encore, Beall’s Outlet, UPS, AT&T, the highest performing Whataburger in the region and more. The property benefits from approximately one million annual visitors and is ranked within the top 10% of highest performing strip centers in the U.S.

Located at 6303-6327 Stewart Rd., the property sits in Galveston, Texas’ most visited tourist destination, with over 6.5 million annual visitors and more than 2,100 hotels and other lodging accommodations. In addition to tourists, the center benefits from a total population of over 50,000, as well as its ideal positioning at the city’s main intersection of Stewart Road (23,670 VPD) and 61st Street (23,369 VPD).

The JLL Retail Capital Markets Investment Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Director Ryan West and Senior Director John Indelli.

“Retail fundamentals are really outperforming with market occupancy at over 96% and considerable market rent growth. The rent growth is driven by retailer demand that has yet to be offset by retail space deliveries. Buyers are leaning back into the market looking to capture the strong fundamentals,” said Indelli.
