This Week's Houston Deal Sheet
CDC Houston is launching a multiphased residential development at City Place to provide homes for the area's growing population, spurred by the neighboring Hewlett Packard Enterprise campus.
The project is a joint venture with Arizona-based DMB Development. Phase 1 is a 400-acre, 520-single-family home community. Homebuilders and product types will be announced later this year.
“Best known for its high-quality office environment, upscale multifamily offerings, eclectic restaurant options and beautiful natural setting, complete with miles of trails, nature preserve and activated Plaza, the next step for City Place is to define our space in the area’s single family residential landscape,” CDC Houston Executive Vice President Warren W. Wilson said in a release.
“This JV endeavor is the result of extensive planning process to imagine what we anticipate will become one of the most talked about places to live in Greater Houston — focused on thoughtful design, pedestrian mobility, environmental protections and one-of-a-kind amenities.”
A Camden Securities Co. affiliate sold a 60K SF grocery-anchored retail center to Brixmor Property Group.
The center, West U Marketplace, is between 4004 Bellaire Blvd. and 4060 Bellaire Blvd. and is anchored by a Whole Foods. JLL Retail Capital Markets' senior managing directors Chris Gerard and Ryan West represented the seller, along with analyst Katherine Miller.
“Retail in the Texas markets is extremely strong. Iconic assets — like this Whole Foods-anchored center in the heart of West University — infrequently change ownership, but the growth of the Houston economy and, in turn, retail fundamentals, continue to drive significant transactions like this one," West said in a release.

It was designed by PSRBB Industrial Group and Langan Engineering; it will consist of three buildings. CBRE's Bill Caparis and Christian Perez Giese in El Paso represented Constellation Real Estate Partners and will lease the development.
