HOUSTON-Blockbuster Inc. has signed a five-year lease for 11,210-sf in the Pine Forest Business Park, tapping the space as a distribution point for its online service.

Jay Jenckes, a Houston associate for Grubb & Ellis Co., tells GlobeSt.com that Blockbuster was looking for a location close to Houston’s main bulk-mail facilities along Franklin Street and near the George Bush Intercontinental Airport. “Blockbuster was looking for easy access to the bulk-mail facilities,” he says. Jenckes teamed with Grubb & Ellis’ Thad Hickman and Tyndall Yapp to negotiate the transaction for Dallas-based Blockbuster.

Situated on six acres in the northwest submarket between Interstate 10, Loop 610 and US Highway 290, the 137,500-sf facility is now 100% leased.
