Emmanuel Salon
Emmanuel Salon occupies 1,864 square feet of retail space at 1875 South Highway 6, suite 400.  The hair salon, which will open for business in spring 2008, is relocating to Lake Pointe from its previous Galleria-area location.

“My wife and I are residents of Missouri City and have seen the growth and potential of having a presence in Sugar Land,” said Emmanuel Salon Owner Brian Benoit.  “We chose to relocate to Lake Pointe Town Center because the developer’s vision for the center seemed to fit the type of client we want to attract.”

Craig S. Appleby of SE Covington & Company, Inc. represented Emmanuel Salon in the transaction.

Texas Running Company
Texas Running Company is a running specialty store that caters to runners and walkers.   Located at 15890 Southwest Freeway, suite 600, the shop is now open for business and occupies 3,384 square feet of retail space.

“We chose to open our store in Sugar Land because this community offers some of the most vibrant and athletic clientele in the Houston area,” said Texas Running Company Owner Gene Mitchell. “This development is ideal for us because the Whole Foods-anchored shopping center is a draw for the health-oriented customers that we hope to attract.”

Heather Smith of NAI Houston represented Texas Running Company in the transaction.
