H-E-B Anchored Manvel Town Center Kicks Off Phase One

This week, Weitzman and H-E-B held groundbreaking ceremonies for the first phase of Manvel Town Center. Upon completion in late summer 2022, the H-E-B-anchored center will be one of the largest open-area retail-focused projects in Houston. The project is located on 273 acres at the intersection of SH-288 and SH-6 in the suburban market of Manvel.

Manvel Town Center is designed to incorporate more than 1 million square feet of retail, entertainment, hospitality, medical and office space. The new H-E-B will total more than 100,000 square feet of retail space, and include a fuel station and car wash.

“Alongside this world-class H-E-B, we envision a well-balanced collection of leading retail anchors, shops, restaurants, fitness, health, beauty and entertainment uses that will attract shoppers and visitors for decades to come,” said Herb Weitzman, executive chairman and founder of Weitzman.

Weitzman is managing the development of Manvel Town Center under the direction of Steve Chandler, city partner of Weitzman Houston, and JoBeth Prochaska, senior vice president of development and asset management of Weitzman Houston. Weitzman’s James Namken, Kyle Knight and Cole Mueller handle leasing at Manvel Town Center.
