Baybrook Mall Lifestyle Expansion (Friendswood, TX)
In November of 2016, we expanded Baybrook Mall with a 500,000-square-foot Lifestyle Center that included a fresh new entertainment and dining district. The district, centered around a one-acre park and lawn, features fully covered walks, covered restaurant patios, fountains, a stage, lush landscaping and multiple valet drop offs for an elevated customer experience.
The expansion features 14 full-service and fast-casual restaurants totaling more than 81,000 square feet, with menus spanning flavors and cuisines. This diversification resulted from our Leasing team's focused and disciplined merchandising efforts to provide consumers with a diverse array of dining concepts. The end result is a critical mass of best-in-class restaurants that have expanded the property’s trade area draw, generating fabulous sales results.
