Award 2020 mage Update


2020 Grow Near Awards Announced


The Near Northwest Management District recognized significant new projects and investments today with their Grow Near award. “Commercial property values have grown from $700 Million to nearly $1.9 Billion since 2004. New commercial construction added $21M in value last year. Each of these developments signals major investments and employment opportunities for our area,” said NNMD President Wayne Norden before announcing the awards.

The 2020 Grow Near Awards went to:

LTD Investments for developing The Marketplace @ 249 on SH 249 at West Road. The $30M project will include a gym, restaurants, retail and several pad sites. A parcel is under contract for a $55M apartment complex. Liem Dang, President of LTD Investments, accepted the award and noted that the area’s growth inspired this new project.

Langfield Industrial LLC for the Langfield Distribution Center on Langfield Road, a last-mile delivery facility. Houston’s Near Northwest has been recognized as a prime location for such centers. This $8M project includes a 153,000 SF facility. John Castilla with Tribble and Stephens Construction accepted the award, noting that they may already have a buyer for the site.

Labatt Food Service for the expansion and racking system improvements of their Labatt Houston warehouse on Pine Vista. Labatt Food Service’s mission is critical in the supply chain for restaurants, hospitals and schools – to get the right goods to their customers on time and at a good price.

Norden summarized NNMD’s 2020 successes despite COVID-19. “We’ve made tremendous strides in making the Near Northwest District the place to live, work, play, learn and invest, and we will continue to make even greater strides,” said Norden. Goals for 2021 include efforts in improving public safety and security, creating greater recognition of the area, encouraging business growth, and a sidewalk construction project along W Little York Road.
