HOUSTON - The historic 600,378-sf Finger Furniture building at 4001 Gulf Fwy. has a new owner. The site consists a retail and warehouse building and two smaller storage buildings on 16.5 acres.
The site was home to minor league baseball teams at Busch (Buff) Stadium from 1928 until 1961.
The Finger family purchased the property, built a grand furniture showroom in 1965 and expanded it in the mid-1970s. They showcased sports memorabilia in the Houston Sports Museum in a portion of the store, which closed in late 2012.
Houston Developer Frank Liu bought the Finger property from Amegy Bank with intentions to develop it into the highest and best use, which could be retail or residential, said Tony Patronella of Read King, who represented Liu in the purchase.
