Willows Shopping Center At 10811 South Post Oak Rd.

I was browsing the newspaper Bellaire Texan dated April 11, 1956 and noticed an article about a grand opening of a shopping center called Willows Shopping Center. They had a full-page ad! This small shopping center is located on Willowbend Blvd. at South Post Oak Rd.

I do not see an Annie's Restaurant/Annie's Cafe listed on the original tenant list in 1956. I wonder when Annie's moved in? Possibly they took over the space of the former Zimmerman's Meat Market & Delicatessen.

J.W. Lander, head of the J.W. Lander Construction Co., which built the shopping center, pointed out it includes 15,000 square of floor space and 60,000 square feet of parking area.

The fireproof building is of masonry and steel. It is owned by J.W. Lander and his cousin, Frank B. Lander.
