Avison Young negotiated the purchase of a 19,420-square-foot church facility on 10.5 acres at 3785 Barker Cypress Rd. in Houston. The facility will be a new home for Emmanuel Episcopal Church, which was displaced by flooding Hurricane Harvey in 2017.
Protestant Episcopal Church Council of the Diocese of Texas, the buyer, was represented by Avison Young principals Tommy LeBlanc and Charlie Neuhaus, both based in the firm’s Houston office. The landlord, Covenant Lutheran Church, was represented by Carol Gray and Christina Hipps of International Church Realty.
“We are so pleased to find a suitable location for Emmanuel Episcopal Church that includes nearly 20,000 square feet of buildings, including worship space, parish hall, library, offices, classrooms, nursery and plenty of parking,” said LeBlanc.
Since its former church at 15015 Memorial Dr. was rendered unusable by flooding, Emmanuel Episcopal has used the sanctuary space of Temple Sinai for Sunday services.
