The area around Almeda Mall has really declined. Only the shopping centers fronting I-45 are successful and doing well. The retail district behind the mall has been forgotten and is nearly abandoned.
Target finally left the area to a new location off of Sam Houston Pkwy. I was hoping to see Target take over the old JCPenney anchor, but Burlington will be there now.
After the rainstorm yesterday a faint labelscar was revealed on the side of this shopping center (2nd photo).
Here are some extra abandoned buildings; I only know that the restaurant was a Burger King.
