East End is Next Retail Hot Spot

Greater-East-End-REVISED-banner-3-final-110113A study completed in 2013 by the management district and The Retail Coach identified major corridors ready for retail development based on a market analysis of types of retail merchandise and commercial services that are currently lacking in the East End. Patrick Ezzell, the District’s Director of Economic Development and Infrastructure says, “For the last 20 years retailers located in other markets and East Enders had to leave the neighborhood to do their shopping. Potential sales of $600 million are “leaking” to other market areas in Houston, but demographics and actual needs of the population along the Harrisburg, Navigation, and Broadway corridors indicate that there is tremendous opportunity in the East End.” The District welcomes all interested retailers to visit our offices to learn about available resources for development.
