Let The Cash Fly: Here Are 6 Sites In Houston On The Selling Block
From higher land cost, a tighter labor market and the trade wars pushing up the price of materials and construction costs, everything about development is getting more expensive.
However, developers are not slowing down in Houston. They are implementing a mixed-use design or acquiring sites in new emerging areas to make the deals pencil out.
Bisnow compiled a list of six particularly compelling sites available for sale in the Greater Houston area.
2710 McKinney St.
Address: 2710 McKinney St.

A full city block is up for grabs in EaDo.
The 1.44-acre land tract is near McKinney and Nagel streets. The site is close to Downtown, the Theater District, the Museum District and the Texas Medical Center.
JLL notes the highest and best use for the site includes multifamily, retail, self-storage and restaurant. Within a 3-mile radius, the estimated population is 179,070 with an average household income of $86K.

The 6.5-acre vacant land site is primed for retail development near FM 1093 and Spring Green. It is next to Lowe's Home Improvement and across from Kroger and an H-E-B that is under construction on FM 1093.
The site is in Cinco Ranch, one of the most successful master-planned communities in the country. Cinco Ranch is 22 miles west of the Galleria and 28 miles from Downtown Houston.

A famed novelty shop is up for sale. Southern Importers closed after 104 years in business, and its land is now available. The two adjacent parcels, totaling 36K SF and 23K SF, respectively, are near Rosedale and Caroline streets in the Museum District. The sites are near Oaks on Caroline, a six-story condominium development.
JLL said the highest and best use for this project could be condominium, multifamily, mixed-use or self-storage. Within a 3-mile radius, there are more than 202,000 residents with an average household income of $118K.
The pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is near the Houston Museum of African American Culture and a few blocks from Hermann Park. It is also close to Montrose, Downtown Houston, the Texas Medical Center and Rice University.

This is an emerging area of North Houston.
The corner sites are 4.52 acres and 3.16 acres, respectively, and have access to Interstate 45, Grand Parkway and Hardy Toll Road. Berkadia noted the location is ideal for retail, office, hospitality, self-storage or a medical office building.
