After a year-long search, East-West Furniture has acquired a facility in Houston for relocation of its headquarters from New England, NAI Partners said. The privately owned online furniture importer and distribution company is based in the Boston area.
TTD Houston Realty, a subsidiary of East-West Furniture, has purchased a two-building industrial distribution facility totaling 172,848 square feet at 175 Southbelt Industrial Drive. The property, on 8 acres, is south of Beltway 8 near Almeda Road.
“As an ecommerce-driven online furniture distribution company, East-West Furniture sought to relocate from New England to Houston to take advantage of the Houston area’s expanding Amazon presence and our overall business climate,” NAI Partners’ Clay Pritchett said in an announcement.
“Additionally, we ran into a very competitive market in Houston for distribution facilities that made the acquisition quite challenging, and spent more than a year aggressively searching the greater Houston market for a suitable distribution facility to purchase before finally acquiring the subject property.”
