Address: Sylvester Turner for Mayor - Campaign HQ 2160 Portsmouth St, Houston, TX 77098
THE SHEPHERD PLAZA SHOPPING CENTER
The historic property is situated in a prime location, and even has a considerable amount of parking space around the multiple buildings, which includes restaurant/nightclub/bar spaces.
Larry Plotsky endeavored to get the word out that "Shepherd Plaza is back in business", but the reality betrays the claim. One of the back-in-biz signs has even collapsed in the interim.
Businesses that have closed in recent years: Stag's Head (in 2015), Le Peep, Dance Studio on corner of Richmond and Greenbriar.
