Retail is driven by location and demographics. Retailers depend on population, employment, and happy consumers. In 2013, Houston’s retail market expanded dramatically. Grocers and shopping centers with big box retailers developed new projects. Nearly half the developed space in 2013 was for grocers, a booming segment in the local retail market. In addition, healthcare clinics have become fond of shopping centers to provide convenient care. Lack of supply or limited space being developed in some submarkets shifted what was a tenant’s market into a landlord’s market.
