Rancho Cucamonga, CA – July 28, 2014 – Progressive Real Estate Partners announced today the sale of a 24,000 +/- square-foot former PetSmart building for $4.98 million ($207 psf).  The freestanding building is located at 10500 Katy Freeway, Houston, Texas.

Built in 1992, the 1.8 acre property is shadow-anchored by Home Depot, Hobby Lobby and Sam’s Club.  It is also part of Houston’s thriving 850-acre Memorial City District which features over 3.5 million square-feet of quality retail, almost 3 million square feet of office space, Memorial Hermann Medical Center and Houston Community College.

The location is further enhanced by its excellent visibility and access to I-10 and Katy Highway (Beltway 8).   In addition, the property benefits from strong demographics with over 335,000 people residing in a 5-mile radius with an average income in excess of $97,000.

Frank Vora, Investment Sales Specialist, from Progressive Real Estate Partners has represented the seller, a private investor, in multiple transactions.   Vora retained Ed James from Houston-based UCR as a co-broker.  The buyer, Prosperity Hospitality Group, was represented by Matt Parsons at CBRE.  Prosperity Hospitality Group plans to build a new hotel on the site to serve the growing tourist market.

“Given the property’s superior location and strong demographics, it’s not surprising that it generated multiple qualified offers and sold at the full asking price” according to Vora.  “Furthermore this transaction enabled the seller to trade into a brand new single-tenant Dollar General property” Vora added.
