Houston hotels see boost in third quarter following Hurricane Harvey

The dramatic recovery that Houston’s hotel market made in the third quarter, largely due to Houstonians and rescue workers booking more hotels in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, nearly balanced out the market’s slow performance in 2016.

In the third quarter of 2016, Houston’s hotel market saw the nation’s strongest declines in occupancy, revenue per available room (or RevPAR) and average daily rate (or ADR). The city’s occupancy fell a whopping 10.3 percent to 60.2 percent, according to data from STR, a hotel data firm. But in the third quarter of 2017, the city’s hotel market saw a 19.6 increase in occupancy, according to a report from Source Strategies, a Texas-focused hotel consultancy.

This 57-acre retail project will be a ‘little more special’ than most

More than five years’ worth of strategic land sales and leases in Aliana, a 2,000-acre master-planned community in southwest Houston, preceded NewQuest’s purchase of 57.2 acres in the community for a high-end retail development.

JLL’s Simmi Jaggi and Elizabeth Clampitt were brought on by Aliana Development Co. around six years ago to transform the community into a self-sufficient hub with plenty of retail to cater to Aliana’s rooftops. From the start, Jaggi and Clampitt said their strategy involved bringing storefronts from Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) and H-E-B to Aliana. From there, other major retailers and developers would follow.
