Chambers Town Center - Theater?
ATTENTION - Baytown, Mont Belvieu, Beach City, Cove, Anahuac, Wallisville, Hankamer, Old River-Winfree, Dayton, Liberty, Highlands, Crosby, Barrett Station, Winnie, Stowell, and surrounding areas.
The Baytown Sun reported in June of 2013: “City of Baytown: Council paves way for new movie theater...State-of-the-art facility to be part of Chambers Town Center development...Baytown is well on its way to getting a new movie theater in the planned Chambers Town Center development at Interstate 10 and Highway 146."
Well, not so fast.... UPDATE – December 16, 2013
Theater companies are not interested in the Chambers Town Center due to the fact that we have a local theater at San Jacinto Mall.
Brad Elmore with New Quest Development Properties stated: “[We] would prefer a theater..., but we are having a hard time getting the theater companies to understand the extent to which your community avoids the San Jacinto Mall.”
If you would like to see a new theater in our area, please sign this petition and please pass this on to all your friends and neighbors!!!
NewQuest Properties has also stated that mid to high end retailers are not interested in the center because they require a “five-mile radius in population in excess of 100,000 people”. They do not understand that there are many who would travel from further than 5 miles to shop at this location if the stores were worth the drive. Nicer stores that we don't already have in Baytown are not really interested in our new town center because they think there won't be enough business.
If you would like to know more about other stores that are coming or not coming to the Chambers Town Center, please feel free to contact Brad Elmore with NewQuest Properties at 281.477.4300. The website is http://www.newquest.com/property/Details/460/Chambers-Town-Center.
