HOUSTON-To satisfy the growing demand for architectural stone and a resultant need for more space, Designer Stone Center’s has acquired a 26,075-sf, freestanding office and warehouse building at 5610 Baird Ct. in the Tanner Freeport Business Park. The seller was local developer Clay Development & Construction Inc.

“This is a major expansion for Designer Stone Center,” says Don Haley, a partner with Houston-based Haley Martin Associates, who represented the supplier. “They are expanding by about 60%.” Clay Development was represented internally by Robert Clay.

Designer Stone is relocating from a leased building at 7221 Wynnwood Dr. “They wanted to own and control their own building,” Haley says. “And they wanted to put some extras in the showroom that a business wouldn’t do if they didn’t own the space.”

Haley tells GlobeSt.com that the supplier pursued a build-to-suit transaction with Clay Development based on the quality of the location and the building. “The Tanner Freeport area has really become a Mecca for showrooms,” he explains. Moreover, the single-story building is constructed with a metal roof, which allows for a free-span building with no columns.

Designer Stone Center will occupy its new building next month.
