Access and Visibility
The KP Plaza
project sits just at one of the few free exits on West Beltway 8 North (the
only free exit to Chinatown). The entrance to the highway is also just about
1,000 feet away. The Beechnut Street is one of the major thoroughfares in the
west of Houston. The traffic count for this site is estimated to be more than
500,000 cars per day. The site is also very close to other three major highways
besides the Beltway 8. The access to Southwest Freeway ( Highway 59) and West
Park Tollway is just 1-2 minutes drive from the site, Katy Freeway ( Interstate Highway10) is about
6-7 minutes drive from the site. The convenient transportation to most major
highways makes it an ideal site for commercial real estate development.

site has 800 feet frontage exposed to the Beltway 8. There are two existing
entrances permitted by TXDOT on the feeder way of the Beltway 8. The site keeps
a frontage to Beechnut Street through a driveway at the back of the site. The
site has two other exits/entrances to Beechnut Street through easement
agreements with its neighbors¡¯ properties. All these entrances/exits access
provides the vehicle in-and-out privilege to and from the site, hence, the site
is considered as one of the best locations for commercial development in this
area from access and transportation perspective.

pond. The detention pond and related drainage facilities was built and licensed
by the City of Houston in 2013. The land is all cleared, and all utilities are
at the site ready for development. Because the land is within the Houston's
city limit, there are no zoning restrictions on the site.

to all major highways, and the excellent visibility, combined with the ample
supply of consumers and labor, make KP Plaza an attractive commercial real
estate development project with high potentiality of considerable profit margin
for both investors and the end users.
