New shopping center for Richmond

A rapidly expanding suburb is set to get a new shopping center.  Excel Commercial Real Estate is developing an inline retail center, Longmeadow Farms, located on the Grand Parkway and West Belfort Street, adjacent to the Palladium Theater, in Richmond, a growing suburb between Katy and Sugar Land.

The building, which will house eight to 10 tenants, is currently under construction with a completion date slated for August. Felix Zamikovsky with New Regional Planning, who is overseeing the leasing of the facility, said the space is 70 percent leased, but would not comment on who the tenants will be.

Identity Architects designed the project and Arch-Con Construction is the general contractor. Arch-Con is also building the new Fiesta Mart in Katy that is slated to open in November.  Richmond has been quietly growing in terms of retail. Gallery Furniture will open its third Houston-area store in Richmond next to the Palladium Theater . The 140,000-square-foot store — Gallery’s largest yet — is slated to open in December. And H-E-B Houston division president Scott McClelland recently told the Houston Business Journal that he is investigating opportunities to expand in Richmond.
