A multimillion dollar investment in Houston by an NBA legend has transformed a neglected property and revitalized a neighborhood. Five years ago, former Los Angeles Laker Earvin Magic Johnson and his business partner purchased the Marq*E Entertainment Center. Tuesday, Johnson toured the property to see how it has changed.
“Families deserve a chance to go out and shop and have retail options and restaurants like anybody else, so we’re excited that the Marq mall is performing well,” he said.
The Marq*E Entertainment Center is reaping the benefits of Johnson’s $15 million investment. It has a new layout, vibrant colors and something that the entire community is embracing—businesses. The center houses retail shops, a movie theater, a police storefront and restaurants such as Cafe Adobe.
