HOUSTON - Nov. 10, 2023 - PRLog -- "Although vacancy and absorption has remained relatively stable over the past few quarters, leasing activity during Q3 jumped more than 15% from the previous quarter as retailers continue to secure their positions in the Houston market.

As the global economy faces economic challenges, Houston's resiliency, especially in the retail sector, has allowed retailers to grow in a market bolstered by strong population growth, competitive cost of living and wide-ranging diversity. The recent leasing activity provides a positive outlook as we wrap up 2023 and head into 2024."
