Barnhart Interests, Inc. is a commercial real estate company with over forty years of experience in construction, ownership, management and leasing of office buildings and retail shopping centers.
Over fifty years ago, the Barnhart family purchased approximately 27 acres of land in what is currently the Galleria/Uptown area of Houston, Texas. Commercial development of this land by Barnhart Interests, Inc. began in 1976 with the construction of Sage Park, a three-story 120,000 square foot atrium building designed by Morris Aubry Architects.
The development of Sage Plaza Office Building, a 560,000 square foot Class A office tower followed in 1982 (also designed by Morris Architects). Originally a spec building, Sage Plaza quickly leased to Sohio Petroleum for their headquarters relocation from California and retained 95%+ occupancies through the transition to British Petroleum and Halliburton Company.
The 83,000 square foot Sage Plaza Retail Shopping Center was developed in 1996 on the corner of Sage Road and San Felipe Road and accomplished 100% occupancy within 6 months of completion. This grocery-anchored project is ideally located between the Tanglewood and Briargrove Subdivisions and the Galleria mall and office building developments in the Uptown business district.
Barnhart Interests has recently developed a 39,133 square foot retail center in Katy, Texas. La Reserve at Cinco Ranch is a two story property located at the corner of Highway 99 and the Grand Parkway.
