Houston Rockets owner and Landry's Inc. CEO Tilman J. Fertitta has acquired a familiar commercial space on Memorial Drive.

A prime piece of Inner Loop real estate, the building sits on 1.63 acres east of Bayou Bend and Memorial Park - both a quick jaunt away.

"When the opportunity to acquire this building on Memorial Drive was presented, it was a no-brainer," Fertitta noted in a statement.
