​​​​HOUSTON - Expansions by grocers have put the Houston area on track to add more than 2.9 million sf of retail space in 2016, according to a new report by the Weitzman Group and Cencor Realty Services. 

It's expected to be the highest level in a decade, though things are expected to return to the 2014 level of 1.7 million sf next year. 

Among the next projects to open will be Westlake Marketplace, a 450,000-sf retail center by Fidelis Realty Partners at Beltway 8 East and West Lake Houston Parkway. 

The first phase will be anchored by a 123,800-sf Kroger Marketplace. Other tenants will be Old Navy, Marshalls, Ross, Michaels, Burlington, Petsmart and Ulta. 

In League City, a Kroger Marketplace anchors the Marketplace at Ninety-Six, a project of NewQuest Properties at League City Parkway and Hobbs Rd.

The occupancy rate for retail properties in the Houston area is 95.5 percent.
