Land along Memorial is rare and, in this case, the tract of land was 2.5 acres and owned by a nonprofit organization. The development of this property marks the development of one of the last large acreage sites along Memorial inside the 610 Loop.

The land has been owned by DePelchin, a foster care and adoption agency, for decades, but it wasn’t until 2018 that it decided to formally market the property after receiving several unsolicited offers over the years. Trammel Crow Residential, a multifamily developer, purchased the property and is developing a 356-unit luxury apartment community.

After operating for more than 50 years as an airport, Weiser Airpark in Cypress will soon become a massive industrial park as a result of one of the largest land transactions of 2019. Represented by Lee & Associates, Dallas-based developer Trammell Crow Co., in partnership with New York-based Clarion Partners, closed on the 102.3-acre airport at 21904 Northwest Freeway, along with the adjacent parcel of land, bringing the total acquisition to 132-acres. The land, located right off of U.S. 290, has been transformed to provide connectivity between northwest Houston and the Greater Houston area. This land deal represents the selling of the last two – and largest –land sites along U.S. 290 in Northwest Houston.
