FRIENDSWOOD - Baybrook Mall has announced plans to add an estimated 555,000 sf to the 1.2 million-sf center. The expansion will increase the size of the mall by about 50 percent to 1.7 million sf, and will rival Houston's Memorial City Mall and the Galleria in size.

The mall's owners, Chicago-based General Growth Properties, said that the mall is nearly 100 percent leased and has continued to show growth.

The project will add more than 30 retailers, ten restaurants, and entertainment and hospitality venues to the property, which is located at the northwest corner of Bay Area Blvd. and I-45.

Work will begin in early May with completion by the 2015 holiday season.

Located on the north side of Baybrook Mall, a 285,000-sf lifestyle expansion will connect to the existing property between Forever 21 and Dillard's. A 270,000-sf power center will complete the project with a variety of big-box anchor tenants, restaurants and family-friendly activity venues.

Houston-based Hoar Construction has been contracted for the construction and renovation project at the mall.
