Two Story H-E-B in BellaireTerra Associates Inc. was the consulting engineering firm on the project.
After more than a year of construction, San Antonio-based H-E-B Grocery Co. debuted its first multilevel store in greater Houston and second in Texas.
H-E-B Bellaire Market opened to the public at 6 a.m. on June 27, 2018 at 5106 Bissonnet St., according to a press release. The 78,000-square-foot grocery store, which sits on about 3 acres, is more than double the original Bellaire location, which was about 20,000 square feet.
The location encompasses two levels of grocery shopping, offering H-E-B Meal Simple options, Kosher items, a butcher shop, flower shop, bakery and tortilleria, seafood department, wine and beer section, a pharmacy, a healthy living department as well as the brand’s Cooking Connection and the Showtime Kitchen, per the release. Later, a coffee shop called The Roastery will open on the second floor with a separate entrance. It’ll include both indoor and outdoor seating.
The original Bellaire store opened in 1994, and H-E-B closed it in March 2017 to begin construction, which included demolishing the entire strip center. It was originally expected to open in fall 2017.
Houston Business Journal reported in February 2017 that H-E-B’s internal design and construction team was designing the store, and RNR reported that Terra Associates Inc. was the consulting engineering firm on the project.
