LAKE POINTE TOWN CENTER EXPANDS WITH NEW SHOPPING AND DINING OPTIONS

SUGAR LAND, TX (January 19, 2010) – Planned Community Developers, Ltd. (PCD) is pleased to announce that Lake Pointe Town Center will gain three new retailers.  Berripop Frozen Yogurt, Extreme Pita and Malibu Tan will soon open for business in Lake Pointe Village, the Whole Foods-anchored shopping center at the intersection of Highway 59 and  State Highway 6.

Berripop
Located at 15810 SW Freeway, suite 300, Berripop will offer visitors fresh and nutritious natural yogurt in a variety of flavors with roughly 30 toppings to choose from. Berripop’s yogurt contains live and active cultures known as probiotics, that according to studies, can help protect your digestive system and overall health by destroying ‘bad’ live bacteria within your digestive system that can cause diseases.

Set to open March 2010, this location will mark Berripop’s eighth Houston-area location and will utilize 1,088 square feet of retail space.  Beth Palka of Page Partners represented Berripop in the transaction.

Extreme Pita
Extreme Pita is a fast casual concept featuring hot and cold pita pockets, souvlaki, gyros, falafel, flat baked pitas, salads and soups as well as breakfast items.  The American/Mediterranean restaurant will be located at 15810 SW Freeway, suite 400 and is also scheduled to open for business in March 2010.  Boasting 1,368 square feet of retail space, Extreme Pita customizes each pita to suit the customer’s individual taste.  Braxton Brockenbrough of The Weitzman Group represented Extreme Pita in the transaction.

Malibu Tan
Launched in 1997 in Pearland, Texas, Malibu Tan’s newest location will open at 15820 SW Freeway, suite 200.   The 2,125 square-foot tanning salon will feature tanning beds, misting and other related accessories.  Malibu Tan is set to open for business later this month.  Bob Conwell of New Quest Properties represented Malibu Tan in the transaction.

Charles Adams, vice president of retail for PCD, represented PCD in all three transactions.
