Asset's Rail-proximate Neighborhood Positions it for Redevelopment Play
HOUSTON, Texas, Jan. 27, 2015 – Commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield has arranged the sale of a 58,000-square-foot industrial property at 4909 Fulton Street in Houston. According to the company's Will Condrey, the property's location – in a commuter rail-proximate neighborhood home to multiple adaptive reuse projects – positions it as a prime candidate for redevelopment.
Based in Cushman & Wakefield's Houston office, Condrey represented seller F&J Real Estate Investments, Ltd. with team members David Cook, Jeff Peden and Scott Miller. Russell Hernandez of Hernandez Properties served as broker for the buyer, 4909 Fulton, Ltd.
"Mirroring the growing trend toward transit-oriented development nationwide, we are seeing growing momentum in the revitalization of areas along Houston's commuter rail lines," Condrey notes. "The Fulton Street corridor seems to be moving away from its industrial roots, with several properties already repurposed for residential. Further south, we are seeing a number of industrial-to-retail adaptive reuse projects. In the case of 4909 Fulton, the buyer took advantage of a great opportunity to secure a prime site for a future development located along the City's newly built North Line Commuter Rail."
