Retail Wrap: New Plans for a Clear Lake Redevelopment

Randalls grocery store exterior and entryway at midday in Clear Lake, TX.

Partners Capital, the investment arm of Partners Real Estate Co., acquired a shopping center with a vacant Randalls grocery store in the Clear Lake area and is formulating plans for a redevelopment.

The 98,522-square-foot Bay Pointe Shopping Center at 2323 Clear Lake City Blvd. is 100 percent leased. The Randalls, which closed in early 2020, still has a lease that expires in March 2024.

The 68,150-square-foot store space will likely be divided to make room for potential tenants including coffee shops, restaurants, a grocery store, school or neighborhood office space, according to Partners Capital.

“We’re out in the market now talking to anyone and everyone that we feel like is a good fit,” said Adam Hawkins, senior vice president at Partners Capital.

“We’ll be in communication with the community,” Hawkins said. “We’re not going to put something in there that we don’t think will improve the communal experience.”

Matt Berry, Robbie Kilcrease and Drew Reinking at CBRE represented the seller, Pennington-Chen. Peyton Jones at Veritex Bank provided financing. The investment was made through Partners Capital’s Fund IV.
