Construction for Magnolia's anticipated H-E-B at Spur 149 and FM 1488 is slated to begin June 14, Magnolia City Administrator Don Doering said during a Feb. 9 City Council meeting.

Doering said construction will begin with utility work and building a retention pond for the property.

Construction on H-E-B was previously slated to begin last fall. However, the project was put on hold in May by development company Stratus Properties Inc. as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

H-E-B is part of a larger, 12-acre mixed-use development by Stratus Properties Inc. called Magnolia Place, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
