BELLAIRE, TX-A group of Houston investors best the $2.5-million asking price to win title to the 24,000-sf Bissonnet, a suburban retail plaza southwest of Houston.

Seller Texas Pacific Properties of Houston owned the property debt-free for many years, according to Bailey, who adds that the going-forward plan calls for a 1031 Exchange to pick up another Houston-area retail asset.

Bailey says the buyer of record, Lenox Hill Holdings, is getting a value-add opportunity in rent and occupancy. The average rent is less than $10 per sf, which he says is 5% to 10% below the market average. Meanwhile, the leases expire in two to four years. That coupled with a 15% vacancy creates opportunity to increase income, he says. Radio Shack and Charlie’s Bar-B-Q headline the tenant roster.
