A property on Washington Avenue near Old Katy Road in Houston will be converted into a Volvo dealership after Grubbs Automotive signed a 20-year lease, according to a press release from Henry S. Miller Companies, the real estate firm that negotiated the lease along with Transwestern.

The property at 7620 Washington Ave.—formerly a brick and construction material supply business—includes a 12,595-square-foot showroom and a 19,250-square-foot warehouse. A price for the lease was not disclosed. The Harris County Appraisal District has appraised the value of the land at over $3.1 million.

“In a very tight market, we were able to identify what we know will be an excellent location for the new Grubbs Volvo in Houston,” said Bill Bledsoe, senior vice president in the Land and Investments Division with Henry S. Miller Brokerage, in a statement.

Founded in Dallas in 1948, Grubbs Automotive operates four dealerships in Grapevine and San Antonio, according to the company's website. The new location will be the company's first in Houston.

John Hoag represented the landlord, Levcor, in the transaction.
