The Woodlands area retail has shown tremendous growth in the previous 5 years. Over 2,000,000 sf of new retail has been added to the market while occupancy rates have held steady at an above Houston MSA average rate of 95%. In addition to this growth and absorption to the area retail market, the overall base rent has increased from $17 psf in 2013 to over $22 psf year ending 2017. When occupancy rates decrease and rental rates increase over a period of expansive growth to the retail market we can reflect on the retail market as being a healthy and robust. A huge contributor to the additional retail growth was the construction and completion of the Grand Parkway. The Grand Parkway was a springboard for numerous new retail developments throughout the southern Montgomery and northern Harris counties. Other sizable contributors to the new retail growth would include the additional retail along the Interstate 45, Kuykendahl, Rayford Road and FM 1488 corridors.

The Woodlands commercial real estate market is dynamic and ever-changing for the town of 110,000. In the 3rd Quarter of 2017, Houston and specifically the Woodlands Submarket showed a slow, but steady decline in Direct/Sublease vacant office space. Direct space in The Woodlands is estimated at 2,000,000 sf and Sublet space just below 300,000 sf respectively. Class “A” dominates the overall vacant space in The Woodlands, with over 60% of the office market. Quoted full service rates in The Woodlands are now hovering just over $30p sf/yr. and downtown Houston rates, historically the City’s highest, are $28p sf/yr. on average. The 2018 leasing market appears to be promising with leasing activity already on the upswing. Oil prices have increased significantly recently, with some estimating prices over $80 a barrel in the coming year. Presented by: Tim Maczko & Lisa Hughes of the J.
