Major addition to Town Center
The East Aldine Management District voted last Tuesday night to enter into a contract with HEB Grocery Company, LP, to purchase 7.53 acres of land in the new Town Center for a Joe V’s supermarket.
HEB plans to build a store of about 55,000 square feet, offering a complete line of food, and with three additional in-store vendors. Joe V’s is known for its fresh produce, quality meats, and low prices.
HEB agreed to pay East Aldine Management District a sum of $1,312,027.20 for the land. The contract calls for the firm to start construction within three years, but officials expect the store to open earlier.
In addition to the store, there will be dedicated parking for 356 cars. Additional sites are set aside for smaller retail shops next to the grocery store, and an free-standing pad site.
Area residents have been asking for a large market since the Kroger on Aldine Mail Route closed earlier this year.
