The property’s new name – PlazAmericas – reflects a new identity for the historic retail landmark. The property opened in 1961 and is Houston’s first enclosed mall, it was a premier shopping destination in its heyday, and over the years the community changed and PlazAmericas is changing with it, to stay relevant to the community it serves. Now undergoing a $10 million dollar renovation you can see it is now infused with a Latin feel which fits its surrounding community.
