H-E-B has been expanding its infrastructure by leaps and bounds this year, with two tech hubs planned in Austin and San Antonio, but the retailer isn’t ready to stop there. The grocer recently announced its plans for two construction projects in West Houston—a distribution site expansion and a store renovation, which will cost an estimated $16 million.
The retailer recently received building permits for both projects, according to the Houston Business Journal. The addition to its 6625 Windfern Road distribution center in Houston is set to cost $12.5 million. The permit allows the construction of a 99,831-square-foot, hi-pile warehouse addition and/or remodel. The news source reports that this project comes on the heels of another soon-to-be-completed facility just a half a mile away at 10000 1/2 Genard Road, which will be H-E-B’s second snack manufacturing plant in Texas.
The second permit is for a remodel and HVAC upgrade to the retailer’s 11815 Westheimer Road store in the Memorial neighborhood in Houston—a project estimated to cost $3.5 million. H-E-B has reportedly been searching for a new location to build a larger store in the Memorial neighborhood, but in the meantime, the retailer has set plans in motion to renovate the area’s existing store.
