The Grand Mall of Katy0
UPDATE: 7/30/2009 – The project has been put on hold (indefinitely). The land is now for sale. See links in the comments below.
Simon Property Group, the Indianapolis based commercial real estate developer behind Katy Mills Mall (as well as 383 other commercial developments across America), is in the process of developing a brand new 1.1 million square foot open-air shopping mall named “The Grand” on the north side of I-10 in between Grand Parkway (99) and Mason. It will occupy the large area just behind the Gand Parkway Cinemark and will be visible from the Katy Freeway.
The Grand aims to fill a void in Katy by offering upscale shopping and department stores previously unaccessible to Katy residents without a long drive into Houston. Major department stores including Macy’s and Dillard’s (180,000 sq. ft. each) are confirmed in addition to Barnes & Noble, Old Navy, and 300,000 sq. ft. available for small shops and restaurants.
In the heart of the fastest growing area in Houston is The Grand—designed to bring upscale shopping to a wide variety of affluent consumers in West Houston. A beautifully designed, lushly landscaped complex, The Grand and The Grand Promenade will be easily accessible from all areas of Houston. Open-air, super regional town center will feature a mix of traditional and fashion department stores, big box tenants, specialty retailers and unique restaurants.- Simon Property Group
The Grand’s stores will compete for local shoppers with LaCenterra, Katy Mills Mall, the Villagio, and other mixed-use retail centers recently opened in the Katy area. Check out project progress at Simon Property Group.
